Martin Caceres would be a useful utility player to have in the squad.
Ah, Aleksandar Luković - plays for Udinese, I believe.
Muslera looked pretty good this world cup.
Was thinking him the other day.
I wonder how much it wold take to get Toulalan. I think if we played a 4-2-3-1, he'd be an ideal compliment to Song.
I agree with that, but I reckon Toulalan's fee would need to break our record and then some.
Would be worth it for anything less than 30m or so.
I reckon he can guarantee an influx of trophies while he is here.
Muslera still pretty flappy. Shouldnt be good for us
Toulalan to me seems a bit like a more cultured Gareth Barry - jack-of-all-trades defensive CM that is all around pretty average.
I disagree with that.
He's a rock defensively, and his passing has always been on point when I've watched him play. He's not a super adventurous guy, but he can let a good shot go.
I think he's a similar player to Gilberto, but maybe with a bit more physicality and range of passing. I watched quite a bit of him 2 years ago, not as much last season, but I've always been a huge fan
Toulalan also seems very mobile and is constantly all over the pitch. I'd absolutely love him here, but he's well out of our price range. Superb player.

You're wishing for him, so I take it you think Sessegnon is good?
I have no idea.
Toulalan is more of a high class Flamini, with better passing range, better tackling and most importantly more tenacious.
When you are able to shine as a DM in a **** French team, its saying alot. I still rate him as the best DM currently in the world
Seriously? He never seemed tenacious at all to me - more like a Xabi Alonso type. Maybe I'm completely wrong! So many people on here seem to rate him highly, and he's just never particularly stood out to me.
You just need to watch France first 2 matches this world cup.
He is exactly opposite of Xabi Alonso.
Out: Eduardo, Rosicky and Diaby.
how about someone like john mensah? probably not too expensive. decent experience. was fantastic in the world cup.
Mensah is a good player, but the problem is that he is a perma-crock.
you mean other than his penalty kick? Lol
Worst. Penalty. Ever.
