    Who will the new left back be?

    Well Roy has signalled that left back is our no.1 priority although I think we all knew that. It seems that we may well just be buying the one left back and using the excellent young Kelly as back up even though its not his preferred position. Its no bad thing, Carra learned his trade out there as well. So who do you want?, here are some of the candidates:

    Maynor Figuerroa - seems to be the hot tip, all I remember is that free kick from his own half. At least he is proven at Wigan in the prem - £5-8m

    Wayne Bridge - may find himself surplus to requirements with Citys impending purchase of Kolarov. English, premiership winner, has chemistry with Cole and Johnson although he can get caught out - £6-9m

    Fabio Coentrao - 'He is currently targeted by Liverpool FC and is said to be keen on the transfer as it would guarantee him first team football for a great club'. Thats the Wikipedia statement and what a good World Cup he had. £12-15m

    Stephen Warnock - Former red, should never have been sold but Martin O'Neil would not make it easy - £6-8m

    John Arne Riise - Liverpool legend and another terrible Rafa sale. One bad season and he wasnt deemed good enough for the squad. Far and away the best left back we have had in the last decade - £4-6m

    Taye Taiwo - Marseille and Nigeria full back in the mould of Ginger John. Lost his place to Gabriel Heinze last season but OM do not want to sell - £10-12m

    Danijel Pranjić - Bayern Munich utility man, primarily a winger but has played full back for club and country - £4-6m
