If Baily regain his old form that will be scary. We will have two fast cb's.
What are we...a rehab joint for broken players? Just because we got lucky with some doesnt mean this club is a magical place for every broken player to rediscover his form.Oh, really? I guess you are born a winner,you never lose. Safe bet.
Well, football is like that risk vs reward. Real paid 100 milion for Hazard, he was not ifs and buts. That's life. Today he will play we will all see how.
"kjaer didn't Die" i used that line a few days ago discussing the situation.Another added perspective btw. Kjaer didn’t die, he will return next season. Tomori and Kalulu should be locked in. Gabbia has shown enough to deserve a loan, not permanent sale. And Romagnoli could still possibly renew. So all five of our current center backs could be on the books for next season.
It would be very foolish to rush into a decision on an important position when we don’t even know what we have. The wise decision would be to loan a new defender for 6 months. Then in the summer, see where Romagnoli is with renewal, see how Gabbia has done on his loan away, see where Kjaer is at physically, and see how Kalulu has grown as well, with Tomori the easily know presence. That’s a lot of question marks that will be coming up sooner than later. Taking cover and giving ourselves time to make the right decision is smart.
And I’ll emphasize I don’t like Bailly much right now or his injury issues, that’s the gamble. But on paper taking some cover for third or fourth option cb for a few months is not a bad decision. We can do worse than Bailly for that guy in the pecking order.
“We want a complete defender, that is, he must be able to win a one-on-one, he must be courageous and then he must be a good playmaker, capable of making the right choices when he has the ball. It won’t be a roaring market for anyone, but I’m sure we’ll find the right player,” he stated.
