John terry on loan anyone think him and big Clint hill would be good the gether

so john terry and martesacker is our defence the rest of th season lmfao.
we need to get real guys we can't afford to pay these guys bonuses never mind wages lmfao.
but at the end of the day we do need a new defence our is terrible too slow and only one who is only half as good as some make out (hill)
for me we need faster and stronger defenders than what we have, Wilson looks like half the player he could have been Kiernan never a footballer and hill is too old too slow but yet is best of the bunch.
I know where w are financially but surely there must be better out ther for us

Wilson was a quality youngster when he played alongside Weir so why has he gone backwards and can Weir resurrect the player that we had previously. Perhaps if he was playing alongside a more polished quality professional he would regain the qualities that he showed earlier in his career.
Unfortunately Mr Warburton appears to prefer Kiernan although personally I would prefer that we sold him and used the money elsewhere.
The above said I suspect that you know my view that while we have Halliday as our holding midfield player providing cover for the defence we will always have problems and for me the priority, as it always has been since Warburton's arrival should be to find a quality player for this position.

I and most people on here agree we need a new defence but the guy that matters most doesn't seem to think so which gives me the fear

I think young Rossiter could be the answer Tom but the big question is, wil he ever be fit?
11 Jan 2017 14:15:50
Clint Hill has been our best summer recruit.
We have 4 CB. Unless we get one on a pre-contract or Senderos departs. The 4 we have just now will be the 4 that finishes the season.
The defence isn't as big an issue as scoring goals anyway. We need a centre forward ASAP.

Blue die, I agree 100% on young Rossiter. I was delighted when we signed him having seen him playing for Liverpool but then when I spoke to some Liverpool supporting friends the concern regarding his fitness was highlighted and their was a number of concerns that having played so many games for England Under 21s during the summer, he would need some serious rest time if he was to stay injury free. The rest is history.
If we can get him fit and keep him fit I have no doubt that he will be a different class to Halliday or indeed any other midfield player in Scotland in the same position.
For that reason I would be happy for Warburton to 'nurse' him back slowly so we have him for next season. In the interim we need someone, even if on loan, to replace Halliday.

Crooks is a DM and he's fit as he's been on the bench but Warbs obvisouly doesn't think he's better than Halliday which is a worry. the thing i don't get is that warbs says he"ll only sign players that improve the team yet after making 12 signings in the summer he still seems to play the bulk of last seasons team
