Calum Chambers -signed

Right out of left field. Very Danny Ings level of secrecy to sign a player who is an experienced CB and can play RB

Well nobody saw that coming. He feels like a player who fell off the face of the earth but I guess the versatility here makes sense. Cover for Konsa, cover for Cash.

wtf..?!

If Mings or Konsa were to go down for a spell at least he is decent cover in addition to what we already have.

Welcome to the club

Yet more business done in the right manner. Good addition I reckon.

Can cover RB and CB. Makes sense.

I wonder if Martinez had anything to do with it.

Strange one this, a few years ago he looked like he'd become a very good player but they messed him about a bit and he lost all his form before a wesley level injury a couple of years ago.


If we can get him back to his form 7-8 years ago he's a great signing at what I expect will be a fee of peanuts, if not it's experienced cover for a couple of years whilst our kids develop.


I said a week or so back that I saw the 4th centre back as a tough spot to fill so this is about the sort of gamble I expected.

Just like Ings I don't think I've seen his name linked to us at all in last three weeks so another good cloak and dagger transfer from us.

Never really rated him much tbh, been at Arsenal years but never looked convincing or established himself there.

That said we do need Axel replacement and he can play RB if needed so makes sense as cover to our main CBs.  Probably means Kesler will go back out on loan next few days.

Played as a DM whilst at Fulham (on loan) and was their player of the year (according to Wiki).
