though the preference would be to bring one in this Summer and then another top class centre half next Summer.
Yeah, it's tricky....Imo, (kind of obvious really  :)) we need someone to replace Carragher if we're to be taken
seriously as Top 4 mainstays.....Ideally we'd get that person this season so that he gets a couple of semesters
of lectures from professor Carragher. I think Jones was the first choice......maybe Comolli can dig someone up!

Replacing Carra with someone even older than Carra? Who did you have in mind, Ed? Bobby Moore? Or was he cremated?  :D

Not literally get out a shovel.... :) Though now that you mention it.....I'm thinking
dead ball situations....lol

Tbh, i don't know anything about young up and coming commanding centre halves.

Ideally, they've identified the right guy and are keeping it quiet 'til we get some more
funds in from outgoing transfers?

Anyone heard of Sebastian Coates? I think he plays for Uruguay.  Rumour has it that he is a talented CB??? 

Dude, being part South American do you have any info on the lad?

Moore, or possibly that other Fulham lad, the one with the statue, Micky Jackson.

Or maybe Johnny Dinosaur could be parked in front of the goal. 

With a mere keeper and one defender, we could deploy 6 midfielders and 3 strikers.
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

new name to me, GD.

I am so involved as technical director  to the Panamanian national team, that I don't get the opportunity to get out much.  These south american lads need a lot of coaching.

It was the same when I was employed as Penalty Coach for the German national team.   So much work on my hands.

A few people have mentioned him because of his Copa displays but I've not seen anything to indicate we're interested.

Here's another one for Ed's to dig up 11: Ralph Coates*. And a winger to boot.



*Dude and ASI will remember Ralph. Now he did have a comb over. Not just a token effort like Bobby Charlton.

And Spurs. His comb over trailed behind him like a bride's train.

I remember a picture of him in one of my old Shoot! annuals when I was ankle biter that made that comb over look a severe short back and sides. He was the sort of player that would get people off their seats if he played today.

ah, you were a Shoot man too!  I loved Shoot.

Yes, Ralph would get folks off their seats, if he were around today.

It would be the first resurrection since Jesus.  (sorry couldnae resist)

And  Ralph was far better with crosses.
