Centre Backs
 
 
All this talk of Evans being 'courted' by Man City, arsenal etc, gets me on my soap box. There are very few/no decent centre backs playing in this country. Of any nationality.

Stones = £50M, Keane = £30M, Evans possibly £25M, Smalling = Rubbish. Is it any wonder our own Ben Gibson was being touted at £30M last season. Ben is having a shocker so far so probably won't be going anywhere.

Long gone are the days of Southgate/Ehiogu, Boam/Maddren, Charlton/Moore. As much as I can't stand the guy, Terry was probably the last decent one.

But as you say thereís very few in terms of stand out top class CBís

Good point. He looked impressive on his debut for Liverpool, and scored. His £75M doesn't look that bad when compared to the afore mentioned donkeys.

Still an obscene amount of money though isnít it!

What do you think of Alderweireld at Spurs? He was excellent last season, donít think heís hit the same levels this time round though

Smalling is rubbish? Not as rubbish as your acumen.

Could argue the same for English keepers.
Hart, Pickford, Butland wouldn't get a look in against Shilts, clemence, Seaman. Har's got 75 caps ffs [|)]

Centre Backs

 
I think Alderweirheld and Vertonghan are probably the best CB partnership in the premier league.

Otamendi is a quality player but a completely different centre back than the old school CBs mentioned above. Itís the way the game is changing though. CBs canít get away with just being strong/physical any more.
a) they get fouls given much softer these days
b) the game is played a lot quicker and unless CBs have got pace, the game would just pass them by.
