Looks the part, doesn't he?

Although let's face it, his name makes him sounds cooler than he probably is really.

James Charles doesn't have quite the same ring to it, somehow.

I think he is going to be a cult hero. Proper big tough fucker, playrs were bouncing off him yesterday, who clearly can also play. I feel sorry for Mings but this is progress

He looks pretty cool to me. And even if he's not I wouldn't be telling him to his face.

Heís got that look about him that just gives everyone confidence. Both Carlos and Kamara ooze a next level quality about them. A pond we need to be fishing in for all of our future signings. I donít mind at this point back ups being a slight step down but if we are to push on we need to sign the likes of these two. And Diego has that smile that hides that he will also batter you for crossing him the wrong way.

He's had a good pre-season and I think will turn out to be a popular signing.

I've got a feeling Kamara may take a bit longer to get up to the speed of the PL.

I think he'll be fine. He was a bit quiet against Rennes but even at this early stage it's clear he's much better than Luiz or McGinn.

I agree he looks quality and a good signing, I just think we made need a little bit of patience.  I wouldn't be surprised if there's some mistakes and loose balls in his first few games.

Yes but this isn't a thread for McGinn and Watkins, what about Kamara? ;)

Reminds me of the Bull at the Commonwealth games. The Bull would be a good nickname actually.

One area of concern I have over the "improved defense" is that we are going to miss Mings's head at set pieces.  He gets a lot of headed clearances from corners and crosses, almost as if it's just him doing it.

 For as good as his defending headers are / were - his attacking headers at set pieces is actually woeful. He should be getting 3-5 goals per season yet he never looks like scoring one.

Diego on the other hand...........

Did I miss something, Mings is more likely to start than not on Saturday I reckon.

Yup. I'm expecting Cash - DC - Mings - Digne until something comes up that means it shouldn't be.

Even if Mings doesn't start the season in the team, I think he would respond to the challenge, improve his form and get back into the team again and make himself and Diego Carlos the first choice centre back pairing.

I'm only basing it on the theory (on here at least) that the starting team V Reinnes would be as near as damn it the 11 who start.  Maybe he is in and it's Gerrard mind games to keep Bournmouth guessing.  I'd be happy if he is.

At the end of last year SG went to great lengths to suggest that our inability to hold leads and to mentally switch off in games lost us more points than missed chances (something we should all agree on)

We can argue that TM is a great ambassador etc and is a fans favourite. We can also say that he was not protected as much as he and the other defenders should of been by having a gaping CDM player missing.

But he was the biggest culprit of "switching off". I think the change in Captaincy tells everything.

I would be surprised if he starts on Saturday
