Solid back up to Laporte and cover at LB

Homegrown too

Txiki starting quickly for what looks like a busy summer, get the feeling everyone has been told to pull their finger out

now onto

First choice LB
First Choice Right CB
Striker
Back up GK

then ship out
Stones
Zinchenko
Otamendi
Maybe Jesus depending on the striker

Im really happy with this buy. He will be a good back up for Laporte.

Premier League and international experience.
Right age.
Perfect English
Physical, good speed.
Will contribute to corners in an attacking sense as well.
Wont expect to play week in week out but will still get the same amount of games he does for Bournemouth so we wont he ego issues.

£41 is a bit high but thats not a thing for me to worry about as a fan.

That would suggest he isnt very good in the air which isnt paticularly re assuring.
Yeah, but we'll have 80% possession and we don't concede many goals from headers. At all. He'll deal with one or two set pieces a game? Some times never?

Aerial duels is a tricky one because that stat isn't just winning crosses, it's like winning balls in the middle of the park and stuff as well.

You can't really compare because most of the aerial battles our defenders are in are in space. they punt up a long ball, our defenders have time and space to attack the ball.

With Bournemouth a lot more of it is back foot defending from standstill.

Steffan will probably be our back up goalie.
