I would just like to say that if we get Kostas Manolis from Roma I'll dance the streets naked. I was so impressed with him 2 or 3 years ago when I watched him play. he reminded me of a certain Paulo Maldini and in my opinion is currently 1 of the best centre halves in European football right now. loving the Calibre of the players we are being linked with in this window but really hope this guy comes. just imagine him and Van Dijk together, now that would be some partnership in central defence!

A mate of mine is a Southampton fan, and although he says all the Saints fan love Van Dijk, he reckons he's not the best 'defender'. If true, not quite sure that's what we need for that money at this moment in time.

Think that could be a good point. We know as well as anyone how sometimes the defender that catches the eye is not the one who is doing the best. Yobo, lescott even stones (Although to a lesser extent as he weren't bought for his defensive skills) have been picked out of our team. At the time it was often the unit that was good, let by a captain in defence like jags. One thing I would say about vvd is that he looked top quality before Southampton so maybe it's worth the risk
