    Said it before, Koulibaly and Alderweireld would be a pretty tasty 1st choice CB pairing with Lindelof and Bailly 2nd string,sell the others!

    The Greek Phil Jones. Not excited about this at all, hoping it's just a briefing in the press to scare Napoli into accepting.

    I don't claim to be an expert on Manolas, but I just can't get excited about a defender for a team that conceded 7 goals to Liverpool in the Champions League. I only vaguely remember watching the two games, but I don't recall Manolas covering himself in glory.

    Allison conceded those 7 goals as a keeper and has done very well for Liverpool.

    Until a couple of blips around Xmas, he has probably been the best performing keeper in the league

    Edit- just checked the teamsheets and see that Manolos started alongside Fazio in both games. I would not fancy him as my defensive partner against a direct and fast Liverpool team, particularly if playing a higher line

    Don't think we will bring in anyone in this window now. Keeping it all for summer.
