Just been on the squad profiles on the Official Site and seen that we only have 6 defenders!!: Coleman, Jags, Baines, Hibbert, Lescott and Yobo. Baring in mind that Jags in injured until November and Coleman... well who knows anything about him, that leaves us with only 4 defenders and IMO, I wouldnt totally rely on Yobo and Hibbert. Also with the speculation of Lescott going to City and the fact that any gossip I have read about us, we don't seem to be being linked to defenders, the only I've heard is M'Bia and some Russian guy. Worried anyone? <_<

i'll only be worried if Lescott goes, but i personally can't see it.

We got neville who can cover, i imagine we will get 1 defender in.

Im very worried thats why Ive been saying for weeks now that we need a right back and a central defender and thats if we keep Lescott
Sell him and I think we need to add another CB and a left back ie an entire back four!

Don't forget Mustafi signed and Duffy has been impressing people.. both 17 but could possibly play for the first team.

Very Worried.

A CB and RB would certainly help our line-up

We badly need a RB, but as long as Lescott stays I have no worries about the rest of the defence.

Yobo is more than capable, and I think Duffy has the potential to be a great player.

I have faith in young Duffy

But I agree that maybe a half decent CB would be handy
