    Palacios- off tut Stoke

    yes diarra will b ean upgrade of wilson.

    but how do u fit diarra,sandro & modric in to the 2 CM positions?

    thats why wilson is a handy back up sub.

    u have to play modric so that leaves the 1 DM position to either diarra or sandro.

    i personally prefer sandro & would hate for him to drop out the team to accomodate diarra.

    i cant see us paying 15m for diarra to be back up to sandro.

    • If we do bag Diarra, which would mean he takes a huge wage cut, and the fact that he is SECOND to our Sandro in the first team line-up for DM.

      Redknapp shouldn't make him first choice, but if worse comes to worse with dillemas, we do still have Livermore, Huddlestone, Jenas who are all fairly tall/big lads who could hop in and do the defending in midfield.

      It wouldn't be the end of the world, quite frankly we NEED to offload Keane and sign one more striker.

      • If, Emilie IF indeed,

        Diarra would be a good signing and rotating him and Sandro would be a nice option to have, however looking at all the factors (mainly wages) I'd be chuffed and very suprised if we could get him.

        Is Livermore on a season long loan? For some reason I think he is!

        Thats Hudds and Sandro who are naturally defensive minded players, even considering starting Jenas, tells us we need another player in that position. We need to be moving Jenas and Bentley on if possible, take the loss and move em on!
        Niko is not defensive minded at all, rose is a left back/winger.

        Rodwell and Tiote would be my preferred, realistic options, but seeing as we mere speculating Gago of real would be an option, Biglia is good as well, maybe thery are too optomistic.
