I believe Yobo is our best centre back quality-wise but needs Jags next to him, so imo Lescott would be our 3rd choice and with him being rumoured to be going 4 over 15 mil, I think we should take the money because I would rather have the money 4 improving the 1st 11, cos with a fully fit squad id have Lescott on the bench, were as I'd rather have a 15 mil new signing which will improve our starting 11.

You have a point but some people could argue that Yobo can be dodgy at times and Lescott is a better all round player.

Lescott and Jagielka.

When Jags plays with Yobo he has to be the left-sided CB, which means both of our CB's can have dodgy moments. We look nowhere near as comfortable at the back when Yobo plays IMO.

I'd have liked to have seen with the current crop...

................Howard..............
........Yobo...Jags...J.Lo........
Nev©.....................Baines
.....Arteta..Felli...Pienaar......
...............Cahill..................
................Yak..................

... it may have been a tactical catastrophe but it would get all 3 in!

Jags and Lescott for me by the way. Anyone realise they were born within a hours of each other - that's why they are telepathic - they're actually twins!

when we had all three fit last season moyes favoured jags and lescott, im with him on that.
i rate yobo very very highly, but i think these two are both better. and it helps the balance having a lefty and a righty.

didn't jags become a starter only when yobo went out injured. then jags played well and yobo lost his spot. now roles are reversed. i think if yobo plays well in that starting spot, he will keep it even when jags is fit. moyes is a fair manager. nobody is just given their spot, which i like. i think yobo will have to give his spot away more or less now that jags is hurt.
