Kalidou Koulibaly

Just watched him on you tube, good at tackling and an ace passer. We should get him regardless of fee...Anyone agree ?...

I watched him against Barca last night, knocked over by his own defender for the first goal, gave away the pen for the third. If we are signing him I hope he's the reverse of Mangala who looked great in his first few games then went rapidly downhill.

He has the pace we seriously lack in defence.

I saw him a bit the other night too - ' Mangala 2 ' was my immediate thought

I hope we stay well clear. He is no spring chicken either

Are you saying mangala because lescott made the same comparison?

Diego Carlos not having a great match tonight either, gave away a pen in the first half

Am watching the Leipzig match v atletico.

Upamecano looks a good cb. Good passing, pace and strong.

Yep, he looks like a defender we should be considering. Glad to see Athletico go out. It is anti football. Managed to beat the worlds greatest team TM but knocked out by Leipzig.

Thing is, they looked more dangerous when they had to go and attack. They looked poor when sitting.

If we're gonna spend a wedge on a CB, I'd be happier on that performance of upamecano than I've seen of carlos and koulibaly

What happened to the Diaz lad at Benfica, he was pretty much a done deal a while back

Lightning strikes twice. Diego Carlos gives another penalty away.  Though even some utd fans are saying it wasn't a pen :-o

looking closer at Koulibaly's performance here.

1st goal. Looks like his own player took him out, but I reckon he felt a touch and went down. Would expect him to be stronger and more dominant than this.

2nd goal.. shades of headless chicken. Got sucked in and found in no man's land.

3rd goal.  Penalty give away. He's unlucky here. Not many players would have the agility to do that to a defender who's about to clear a goal.

I hope its just a bad day at the office.

By all accounts his performances over the last few seasons have been impressive so hopefully just a bad game.

Really hope this gets done soon along with a LB.  I’m not confident about the new season with our current defensive options. Experience has shown that Laporte will no doubt miss a number of games injured.
