I think we need a poll to see if people are happy with the line up. That way they can't slate him if we don't get the result we want
If we don’t win he is getting slated no matter what lol, yes the line up is what we want to see but ultimately this is a results business game & he hasn’t been getting them

Dier definitely has all the natural ability to become a top centre back - think we could see Dier, Foyth and Sanchez (plus a left sided Toby/Jan replacement next season) as our main centre backs to choose from going forward.
I'd go with Tanganga as the 4th myself. And with Davies more than enough cover and option to play a back three. We have players leaving on free transfers so funds will be limited. Even with Toby and Verts gone i'm not sure I see CB as a problem position. We need to be looking at full back and DM.

Dier can be very good in that position but I just cant see it working with Ssnchez
I think they just need time and a run of games - Sanchez looked a lot better in his first season when he played a lot. I know he played in a 3 but neither him, Foyth or Dier are going to get any better if they don't play. Toby and Jan are probably leaving next season, so we need to start looking forward.

Think we have just been so used to having a left footed left centre back when er dont it just doesn't look good and looks a bit awkward both defending and bring ball out. Think s left footed CB is a massive priority if Jan isnt staying/wanted

I'd love for Tanganga to have a career with us, but he won't be here next season unless we start giving him some games. As it stands, he's out of contract next summer and he's not signing a new contract.

Maybe there's no penny dropping.

Maybe it's just that Pochettino reckons Ndombele and Lo Celso are ready to play their full part.
Yes, but he should of removed Eriksen from the team weeks ago.

Maybe the term penny dropping is a bit OTT, but it does feel like a monumental moment.

Chelski won the league Terry and Cahill at CB. Liverpool play two right footed players at CB. I could go on but think you get the point.
