Well it's nice to be in the position whereby the central pairing doesn't pick itself, and there's genuine doubt as to who might start. That's what progress looks like.

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

I disagree, until his injury Konsa was the biggest liability in our defence.

Yet the biggest culprit for not being switched on at all, and letting games bypass him, is the new captain. SG has created a rod for his own back here.

Looking forward to seeing Carlos playing. I think it would be a surprise at this stage to see Mings start next to him.

On Saturday Carlos showed good positioning  and calmness at the back. He appears to love defending and he was organising others at times.
Heís definitely a leader and now we have competition for who plays alongside him. First time Iíve seen him play and was impressed.

Carlos may well turn out to be a great acquisition (and Kamara also) but as we all know settling into the pl can take up to 6+ months. I think having a leader like Mings in the team would help these two players settle in quicker.
It seems naive to expect Carlos to marshall the back line alongside a player in Konsa whose own form had dropped away under our manager before his bad injury, with yesterday being only his first game back.

He has to get up to speed too - giving the ball away so much isn't good, but he'll adapt in time. From Konsa's point of view, when did he last start a run of games for us?

More 'Car Crash' than 'Car Wash'. You're singing on your own, Footie.

Hopefully it's not as bad as first thought, but Chambers is an able deputy. Just don't bring Konsa in.
