    Get involved!

I have been critical of him many times here.

But yesterday he was really good for us, and I have to give him credit for that.
Without him we would have leaked more goals in 1st half. And if there would have been 0:3, I am not sure we would have managed to come back from it.

That does not mean I am fully convinced about him, but yesterday he was really good.

I agree. Though still a problem area and he’s not without a few panicky moments every game.

I prefer it when he is paired with Jan as the right/left combo looks more natural...Toby sometimes looks all at sea on the left hand side.

Defo our future though and the more big Dave plays the better he’ll get
 
I think we need a new no 1 CB and hopefully will get one in January. Defence is a major problem. Then it is a matter of which one Toby, Jan or Dav fits in best with him. He is too error prone for me but with a strong partner that could change.

If he's too error prone for you, God only knows what you think of Toby then.

The only defender in football to lose a hulking 6 foot 3 player with dreadlocks, while keeping a hand on him at all times.
 
The way people's opinions change on players is pathetic.

Sanchez like many of our players has suffered in the last year because Pochettino lost his previous ability to be consistent in his decision making. It happens but you could see that si clearly.

We will see if Sanchez is a Mourinho stayer but he is a good defender no question.

But 2 games and slightly better performances can be lots of things.

Best performing defender we have right now.
I've got to admit I'm not that gone on him but have to say he's performed the best out of our CBs in the last few games.

I think he and Serge got exposed in the first 20 mins or so, mainly due to Sissoko and Lucas not tracking back.

Would still like to see more of Tanganga though, he's looked mustard in the few times he's played.

I think this says more about the worrying lack of talent we have at CB rather than Davinsons sparkling form.

"Seriously pony player"

...Was the comment that sparked the above defense of Sanchez.

He certainly doesn't deserve such a scathing assessment.

Ignoring weaker links in the proverbial chain is a flawed approach to any potential solution. Include the full backs and anyone else overtly tasked with defensive duties this season; he's out-performing them all.

I'm also given further confidence that sustained game-time and better compatriots will improve his levels further (see: Jan/Dav combo 2 years ago before being harshly dropped).

Your response suggests you don't think he has been our best centre back this season. You're left with 2 other options. Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen. Which do you think has been more consistent than Davinson so far this season?

Wasting your time.... He's just trolling. It's all he knows. Sad really.


EDIT: Thanks for the kiss sweetie. xxx

Shiver me timbers
He frightens the life out of me. Most of what he did last night was really, really good, but there were maybe half a dozen errors with the ball and defending 1v1 situations. If he is the best we have, then it doesn't say much about our alternatives.
