17 days untill the start of the season and it looks like we could be facing Citeh with Jos and Fonte in the heard of defence. Now I am starting to panic.

If no cb's sign by sunday i will be to! I think fonte and hoovield will be ripped apart by city hope not though

Agree3 Disagree3

They are 2 decent centre backs, they play great together.. man utd have rio and vidic, chelsea have terry and luiz, we have jos and fonte. im not worried one bit - chris

Agree2 Disagree4

Well said Chris, some fans forgot they deserve a chance

Agree2 Disagree3

Wat about clyne?

Agree0 Disagree4

I'm sure Adkins is getting a Centre Back he has mentioned he wants to get one in I'm sure he'll do it.

Agree3 Disagree0

Jos will be fine. Not sure on Jose in to many of the big games last term he went missing prime example both reading games. Of course this is only my opinion and im sure they are working hard behind the scenes to get the req players in. just a shame it is taking so long

Agree3 Disagree0

Clyne is a RB. Thats the harse world of the prem not everyone that will get you there can actually cut it at the next level. It happened from league one and needs to happen again. Players who in my opinion are not good enough; Fonte, Richardson, Fox (defending), Chaplow, Guly, Sharp will be out of his depth against the bigger teams. I'm not a doubter of NA but just being realistic

Agree3 Disagree0

I think you're wrong about Sharp he is a very talented lad. Fox is also quite good just need to motivate him better before games. He just isn't quite committed 100%. I reckon you've under-rated Guly a bit he has some spectacular moments. Chaplow, Richardson and Fonte possibly should be sold. However they are reasonable as reserves for the main squad.

Agree3 Disagree1

Jos was outstanding last season, being a season ticket holder, i saw how confident he was on and off the ball. Fonte on the other hand was making more mistakes but stayed confident. Yes, we need a CB, but Fonte and Hooiveld will do us a solid job through the season. You dont need to panic.

luke shaw will hopefully stay

He should do at this point. The bids are low and he's settled in the squad.

Does anybody know what has happened with the Lens deal? And has the Buttner transfer 100% not happening now?

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Buttner is unlikely but never say never. Lens is actually becoming more likely there is talk around that a bid has been accepted only a medical remains to secure him (however this is a rumour please take it as such).

Saints are a meant to be making a signing that will rock English football not sure who this is but could be walcott? If not we will should sign:
Caulker (Loan)
Craig Dawson 2-3m
Adam Johnson 6-8m
Luke Shaw will take over at LB

Believable0 Unbelievable5

I agree with caulker, seen him play many times before when he was on loan at yeovil . very good defender, but now king has retired, he may take a chance with spurs
