    I expect players to step up in the face of adversity. It should, at least, galvanise some of those who looked lethargic on Saturday.

    Him and Mendy, both a bloody liability.

    For those who say John is (or was never good), I have to say no John, no title last season.

    Walker, Fern and Otto, play wing backs, Cancelo has to come in

    Honestly don't think it's the worst thing to happen.

    Stones' injuries and inconsistent performances haven't allowed us to rely on him for a long time.

    Get Garcia or Harwood-Bellis in, give them game time in our first 11 and it might pay off. Either way Laporte is our centre half good enough, granted he's very good. Stones would be okay as a rotational option but he can't stay fit.

    Should have signed another centre half though, might cost us the league that. We need 2 new centre halves, hopefully 1 in January.

    Time to cut our losses.
    Always injured, unimpressive even when he isnt.
    We need a proper first class right sided centre back.

    Laporte is outstanding, just need a very good, reliable long term partner for him

    Everyone that played last season contributed to the title last season. No one will argue against that.

    Not buying in the summer was a gamble that has not paid off. We just have to get on with it now. If Mendy holds up we can play five at the back with Cancelo, Walker, Ferdy (and Otamendi). Bernardo can also play wingback at a pinch or holding midfield. Pep is the best manager in the world at coming up with solutions. This is possibly his biggest ever challenge. We have been very unlucky with injuries these past few seasons. It could make this season more interesting.
