    We rarely know what's really going on with players and it seems few fans really care. Just if they perform well or shite.

    I still think that Henderson may end up at CB. Maybe next season or after.
    We have a little bit of history e.g. Tommy Smith, Emlyn Hughes, Jamie Carragher and for a different club Mascherrano.
    Players from a different position transforming into great CBs.

    I've said it before it's either or with Joel or Joe.If Joels fit it start him as he gets injured often so use him while he's fit.
    Fabinho was outstanding on Sunday but weather he can play like that all the time is another thing.

    CB is specialist position. Do not want to see too much interchanging there!

    I think the problem we have with Joe is that he lacks the experience of games that all top CBs have had while rising through the ranks, games in which they're playing against much better sides, who dominate the ball in which they have a lot of real defending to do, to really hone and develop their decision making and positioning to develop into a top top centre back, and how we press the ball, Joe just isn't going to get that experience to develop as we need him to, to turn him into a top CB

    Look at his wiki, barely any games at all, other than in the last 2 seasons for us, playing in a side whose press reduces the opposition into punting hopeful longish balls down the channels the majority of the time and when teams do get good possession and that time served positioning and decision making is needed from him, he's frequently found desperately wanting

    I suggested a loan somewhere, because in our side I don't think he's going to get the experience Virgil, Fabinho, Matip and others had to develop

    Williams really not been tested , really too soon. Just doing the basic stuff.
    Good as the 6th back up CB.

    Phillips very nervy first 20mins.
    Then settled down.
    Good as the 7th back up CB.
