He was injured at the start of the return but surely by now he is fit and it is a sign that he is on his way that his arse is still on the bench. Garcia hasn't been our problem and he is the future so I'd stick with him and Laporte for now. Be good to have a solid partnership for the big games coming up.

I think that is Peps plan - build a partnership between Garcia and Laporte for the CL games. We desperately need one.

I agree with you both.Laporte and Garcia have not done much wrong in our defeats.It's been them 2 balloons at left back

Are you forgetting DisaPointon? Only joking, Lescott turned out to be a decent enough signing. He was part of our first trophy wins.

24 appearances (4 as sub) in the Prem last season. So he started over half the league games. More than a bit part player.

I think peps trying to keep laporte wrapped in cotton wool as much as possible to save him for real.

Garcia is good, but probably should be our no.3 CB at this stage in his career.

Laporte

Need to find buyers for otamendi and stones.

1 established CB and prob another young cb, unless Harwood-bellis steps up?
