Diego Carlos has been signed to bring competition to the centre back positions, and Gerrard felt we needed to strengthen that area of central defence.
It's really going to challenge the existing centre backs into places and, like SG, I'm looking forward to the competition for places.
Gerrard has said, "Let's just say it was a strong first training session."

If I can suggest that Diego was very aggressive and competitive, perhaps throwing in a few reducers to announce his arrival, we wouldn't be surprised. Go Diego!

Just what we need if he ends up injuring other squad members.

A foolish and unnecessary gesture, if he did. His record speaks for itself.

Reducers are pivotal for where we want to go.

Diego Carlos is also a vice captain, which didn't come out with the original announcement.

I reckon he'll be like Chief Whip then, having quiet words and reminders to toe the line, rather than getting pissed and groping people.

Either way people won't argue with him.

You'd think the Vice Captain thing also makes him a first choice... And he's ahead of Mings in the pecking order..

Subject to obviously how he gets on in the first few games, I'd say he's number one choice, with the other starting berth more up for grab than it's ever been.

Yep, it'll be interesting to see what happens. I guess given pre season so far that we're sticking with a 4 at least. I wonder whether Carlos will be left or right sided. I'd hope it will be a settled pair and not lots of swapping about. It's just nice to have plenty of choice for once.

I think hes right footed but played on the left, so could easily switch to the right.

I think with him you certainly have the option of a back 3 (Chambers/Konsa, Carlos, Mings) for certain games. Not that Id want it permanently.

To be honest, we could easily have 4 players with some degree of captainancy - plus an ex captain

Hell of an achievement for a team that normally looks like its laking leaders
