When striker bites hard,
And ambitions are low,
And resentment rides high,
to Barca he will go,
And we're changing our ways,
Trying Jordan Rhodes.

Then Lov-ren will tear you apart, again.

Suarez gets 3 lines and Lovren gets 1?

Comes across a bit bitter

I read that he lost his place in the Lyon team towards the end of the season. Apparently the whole team was struggling at that point so maybe wasn't his fault.

Nice little summmary that

Assuming he starts alongside Sakho we have two excellent young CBs now, aged 24 and 25. Let’s have some stability at the back and just stick with those two (injuries permitting) all season. For too long we’ve chopped and changed at CB and I think it’s been to the detriment of our defence as a whole.

I think sticking with these two and hopefully having a fully fit Enrique again will help stabilise the defence, too many chopping and changes last season through injury really didn't help us at the back.

I also think that if as it appears Lovren is an organiser at the back it will really help Mignolet as well.

I really don't want us playing with Enrique regularly. I'd rather we kept developing Flannagan to be honest. I agree though that a settle defence would be a big asset.

I still think Mignolet out and a better suited keeper in would be a big help but I also don't want us to make to many changes to the team/squad so maybe that can be left for a later season. A sweeper keeper would seem to be more appropriate for the way we play though.

The injury is a worry though at his age. If he wanted big wages it would be too much of a gamble IMO. Before that I would have be right with you on that.

If Johnson keeps his form, we might have to try Flanagan out on the right though. Still belive we'll get Moreno in plus that spanish guy from Atletico.

If that's the case we'd be better off sticking with Reina for this season to see if he can improve the defence.

I think a fit Enrique will offer us more defensively that Flannagan at the moment, he did well at points last season but I'd rather see him pushing Johnson for the RB position which is his more natural fit.

The keeper situation is an interesting one and I think this season will be a big one for Mignolet

I don't think you can try to build a defence around a keeper the manager has no faith in. I think that is what I would do though.

Yep a better organised back four coupled with Mignolet's excellent shot stopping would be a very nice mix.

He'd be an excellent signing.

One of few Saints players I really would have liked to see us sign but he is Spurs bound.
