He's had, what - 3 or 4 bad games this season? Can't really moan at him too much. Gives the team an awful lot - in the last 5 mins, he was basically playing as a central midfielder, pushing the team forwards. He's the sort of risk-taker we need in situations such as yesterday!

no he's back to reveal next season's kits

I ususally avoid this thread as it's depressing to read some of the things written about our very own sideshow bob. It seems a lot of people want him to be this robotic perfect defender who makes the

What a way to mark your 100th cap:

Do we think Conte believes he can play LCB/RCB? when we initially went to 3 cbs I thought he could fill the Chiellini role of marauding forward, similar to the role Azpi played this year. I worry about his individual defending out wide, in the very small sample size with JT in the middle he didnt look good as we all know but that could be down to not understanding the role? If we get Bonucci I wouldnt be surprised to see him kick out wide, which makes me very nervous but if Conte can drill him into playing that well all year in the middle I have faith he can make him successful out wide.

I can't find the quote at the moment but I remember one point where Conte was describing how the RCB/LCB should play. He something along the lines that those two need to be aggresive and press. That it is helpful for the them to be fast, etc.

With that, Cahill clearly doesn't fit in the aggressive category at all. Luiz does though. He is fairly fast, although I thought he got slower and slower as the season went on (I'm assuming because of his injury that wouldn't go away). So I hope it will be back to normal by next season.

I do wonder how he would do in that position long-term though. I have my doubts, but I also think it could be brilliant. Would give us another player good on ball, unlike Cahill.

Don't let anyone ever tell you that David isn't our best defender. Proper athlete and defender, very physical, intelligent, great at reading the game and also a fantastic player with the ball at his feet. I know it was "just a pre season friendly" but today he showed he's the only real leader in the team. 

For how much we suffered in the Koulibaly saga, we really got lucky with this one.

Yeah but he still does stupid mistake. 

He did one where he tried to pass out from the back with James on top of him.....

You find a perfect defender who never makes mistakes and Ill sell both my kidneys to buy him.

Back to his donkey ways.

He has always been bad. 

The system helped him look good. 

Any hows I think he is better then Cahill. 

But oh well non of that matters now. Conte will be gone soon, thanks to the good job of the board. They keep doing great things season after season.

Iv long held the opinion that only Azpi can defend from our defends.

I start losing hope on David tbh. He is a great player but not much of a defender. Out of focus the whole time and extremely weak on 1vs1. Those have been the no1 weak points since day1. Is it that hard to improve on them? For me starts being a deal breaker from now on.

I don't think his performance was terrible or anything. In fact, if it wasn't for him I don't think we would have come even close to almsot equalising. Sure, he fucked up for the Vokes header but who did you see rallying up the troops in the 2nd half? David. His leadership was on full-display, I highly doubt Christensen and Rüdiger would have settled in this easily if David wasn't playing by their side.
