It's very weird seeing a Shappy post with only three words! I don't like it.

Shappy - I think a lot of posters will be pleasantly surprised I think Maguire will do really well at OT excellent signing in my opinion.

Just out of interest I think we can safely assume that our first choice back 4 will be AWB, Lindelof, Maguire and Shaw, how do you rate that compared to our other top 6 rivals pal?

Its even weirder that Shappy followed up his 3 word post with a single word post. All ok Shappy? Or are you waiting for Fernandes' signing to put in your daily essay :D.

We have a better defense then the rest of the top6.

{Ed001's Note - than all of the top 6? Really?}

We only came second last year in the Red Card league, now with the signing of Maguire and AWB who both got sent off last year, we are aiming for top spot this year.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha.}

Now a one word reply from Shappy.
Seriously worrying.

Just messing with you all.


I think it puts us in the mix with best defences in the league. It's tough to say which is better as each team sets up differently and therefore asks different things of their defenders.

City for example currently have 4 of the top ten most expensive defenders of all time on their books. However, none bar Laporte could be described as a great "defender" all have been bought for their ability on the ball and their attacking threat. If you seriously make them defend they make too many mistakes.

Liverpool have great full backs and in VvD probably the best CB in the world right now. Yet there are questions of who partners him, Matip, Lovern and Gomez are good at some things and but poor at others. Gomez might be a good long term option but need to stay fit if he is going to be.

Spurs defence on paper looks solid but it is aging. How many games will BOTH Alderweireld and Vertonghen play together? Rose is also a fitness doubt and might yet leave. Tripper has gone and Auier isn't good.

Arsenal are Arsenal and will forever have a poor defence. Moving Wenger on hasn't changed Arsenal's recruitment strategy and as such they still aren't signing defenders who can defend.

Chelsea with their ban will have to make do with what they have. Luiz is a loose cannon defender. They have some potentially good young defenders, yet they are unproven somewhat.

I would say if your looking at purely defending we have joint best defence with Liverpool. If your looking at defenders who contribute to attack. We are third behind City and Liverpool.

Shappy - Thanks for taking the time to answer can't argue with any of that pal.
