His jockeying at the end vs Moura once Zouma made that mistake was unreal, i dread to imagine Rudi in that situation!Its a fantastic punt by Lampard, it really is. I was always a massive Thiago Silva fan, but I really doubted this transfer, at his age, having played in a lesser league for so long, but he is boosting his legacy and profile and I am delighted for him (as an adopted Brazilian)
I was convinced they were scrimping with Silva and Mendy but they both look fantastic. I got it totally wrong in the Chelsea thread and Lampard deserves a lot of praise. He has gotten the summer spot on when he absolutely needed to.
He would have fitted Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal like a glove aswell (not so much United as Maguire needs a pacey athletic type next to him) which makes me even more amazed we had no competition for him!
