Yes on paper we look to have a decent defence but they didn’t show it very often last term, even allowing for injuries.
Having conceded 68 goals in the league alone, surely we need at least one quality addition?

Mistakes and lapses of concentration are contagious and we are getting punished; Santon plays them onside, Simpson gifts possession, Cisse falls asleep, Tiote caught in possession, Perch outmuscled and so on.
Too often the defending is desperate and when it cracks it is catastrophic – as it was at Fulham, Spurs, Wigan and home to Chelsea.
