    The Ashley Williams debate

    Colin, I'd not rule out this Brazilian or anyone else at this point. However I would say a firm command of the English language is a requirement as that is the language all the players use to communicate as a team on the pitch. It’s fine that he could have side conversations with Riena, Jose, Coutinho, Suarez, and Lucas, but if he's to be the leader of the back line I need him to be able to clearly communicate with Glen, Agger, Skrtel (assuming he stays) as well as the central midfielders who you'd expect him to direct in front of him which means Stevie, JonJo, Hendo and Allen, as well as Lucas.

    Brazilian, Spanish, French, Welsh or Martian for that matter, I don't really care, but he'd better be able to communicate, which right or wrong, for LFC means he has to speak English.
