  1. Dave was a top-class defensive left-back from 2014 - 2016, but never offered much going forward, and is going to offer even less now. When he played left back he had 3 assists and 3 big chances created in each of the 14/15 and 15/16 seasons. In comparison someone like Andrew Robertson has 11 assists and created 15 chances last season, while not being too much worse defensively. The game has advanced in the last few years and we can't afford to have a black hole on offense at the full-back position. Using Dave as a left back today makes us too predictable on offense imo.
  2. Really really need to shore up the defence. Centre back and Left back must be the #1 and #2 priorities. #3 would be a better keeper and #4 a better backup striker. A Winger would be well down the list at #5 tbh. 3,4 and 5 can wait until 2021. Would prefer just to spend 100m on a world class centre half. Someone who can become a Van Dijk or a Varane. Rudiger is injury prone and not world class even when fit - Tomori is still learning with a long way to go, and neither Zouma nor Christensen have the ceiling to cut it long term at this level.
  3. He's not very good to be honest, a long way behind where Petr Cech, Iker Casillas etc. were at 25. Hopefully Given comes in and gives him some much needed improvement on basic goalkeeping skills like coming for crosses and shot stopping.
