The only caveat here is that Laporte wants out (or did in the summer).Not sure about that. Ake maybe but certainly not Laporte. Given Stones’ injury history we’d be mad to get rid of Laporte unless Doyle or Mbete overtake him in the pecking order. Not gonna happen in 12 months!
Definitely hindsight and all that, but more and more I see that Ake was not a necessary signing.
Harwood-Bellis, C Doyle, Mbete... absolutely unreal CB talents at the club for the next 10 years we are amazing in this position.
Finley Burns too, but I put him just below and CJ Egan Riley is hard to judge because he mostly plays as like a defensive right back (inverted) anytime I see him.

He's a top class player but do we want players that don't want to play for us? If someone came in with 60-70m then I'd be tempted.
These kids have the potential to reach his level (I agree that's never happening in next 12 months) but they'll need minutes to get there.
