In my opinion Seba is not trusted by Dalglish.
According to a lot of people in this site Martin and Agger are the best players in our defense.
But i am not sure about that ... without first watching Seba playing as a starter from the beggining against a great opponent.
I have seen mistakes made by Martin and also Agger.
Also Enrique and Johnson made mistakes.
Well...if Seba made couple mistakes that is normal in my opinion...because players that are supposed to have much more experience than Coates make mistakes in nearly every game.
Can somebody tell me why Seba is not given an opportunity to show his true value now?
Everyone makes some mistakes from time to time. Agger and Skrtel are the best partnership we have because they have played together for years and their skill sets complement one another perfectly. Coates looks good, very good, but he'd have to be extraordinarily good to force his way past those two into a permanent slot.
I hope he does it, if we end up with a partnership that's even better than Agger/Skrtel then we'll have the tightest defence in Europe.
For me, and from the sounds of it, for most of us, Coates should be 3rd choice, ahead of Carragher. I expect that to happen next season.
