I think if we ever do settle with a back 4 Agger and Sakho would be the pair because they are our best defenders

Kolo Toure.

If we had Agger then he'd do at least one stupid thing per game.

Agger's got more chance of coming in for Sakho I think. Kolo's our best player in that area of the park. And he's a proper winner - we need him to start every game he can, just like Gerrard, Suarez, Sturridge and Mignolet.

I had a chance to read that interview he gave in "Le Parisien" which was picked up by ESPN for their article.

One being asked if he had any regrets at moving to Liverpool, he categorically stated that he had none. He also said that the PSG chairman told him that the doors of PSG will always be open for him and when asked if he saw himself coming back to Paris, he replied that he will always remain a fan of PSG but his focus remains solely on Liverpool. He stated that he feels like it is a brand new start for him and that he's happy to move forward from the negative influences that have recently weighed heavily on him  in Paris.

He also said that he's taking intensive English lessons and that Brendan calls him "Killer" on the training pitch  ;D

Agree with this. Kolo has to start. I think he and Agger are our best known pairing; but I wouldn't mind seeing Kolo and Sakho pair up once we get Johnson and Coutinho back.

Mignolet got a touch on that ball, that's why it was so awkward for Sakho.

Its early days for me... I'll judge him at the end of the Season. I want to see him tested, up against a fast attacker. My current pairing at the back however would be Toure and Agger... but that all depends how the pairing 'bonds'...

I'm staggered that the posters in here have already got Sakho replacing Agger.  Really?.

Sakho could be great. Maybe. One day.

But my word, how quickly we replace a proven great like Agger with hope and potential.

It's about having the skillset. Sakho is the first dominant aerial player we've had since Sami. And that's important for us I think. Instead of getting dominated by big strong Centre forwards suddenly our defence will be doing the dominating. And it's not as though he's a bad defender that he'd only be in the team because of his physique. He's very good at distributing the ball as well.

They'll all get plenty of opportunities though I think. Especially if the 3 at the back is going to continue.

We're gonna have a tough time fitting them all in. Nice situation to be in.
I think Sakho will turn out to be as good a defender on the ground as he's shown in the air, just the pace is a bit quicker for him. In all honesty, I didn't think he would have played as many games in such short space of time when he first signed, but that can only help speed up the bedding in process.
The guy has so much potential, no to mention the obvious physical attributes already there.

It's pure logic.
1. Sakho is going to play, you don't pay that sort of money for defender and use him as a sub.
2. Touré is going to play because he is an organiser and an aggresive header of the ball.

Therefore, it's between Skrtel and Agger and Skrtel is in good form at the moment.

Replace Sakho with Mignolet, and Agger with Reina. Reputations count for nothing when you start letting mistakes creep into your game. The players playing the best should start, therefore Agger is on the bench for the meantime until he starts performing again.

At times he has the gangly or coltish manner of Djimi Traore but he is a lot better in his passing and control of the ball. He has barely missed any of his passes so far. He is clearly the physically strongest of any of our CBs and the strongest in the air, and along with Toure the fastest as well.

Disagree. You play your best team, put the strongest Eleven on the pitch.

For me its Agger plus one at CB, and right now that one would be Kolo.

Exactly, so how can say " You play your best team, put the strongest Eleven on the pitch.". And disagree that players in bad form should be replaced by players in good form?

Agger isn't performing as well as the other 3 centrebacks at this moment in time so he shouldn't be on the pitch.

Spot on.
Forget how much we paid for Sakho...it has no relevance on who gets picked. For me best pairing is Kolo and Agger... Then Kolo and Skrtel.
Sakho is strong and reads the game well. But he has made many mistakes, and I dont think he has the pace. Like I said earlier... Judge on how the season pans out...but for posters' to say things like "Potentially the best premier league defender over the next decade" is silly.

Are you saying that I'm not being logical, and that you are?

You're saying the best 11 should play every single week, regardless of mistakes. Unless of course they make some arbitrary number of mistakes.  That goes completely against what you originally said  ???

I said you play your best 11. I stand by that.

You went off on a tangent about what if Agger was costing us a goal a game would I still select him?. I said no because that would be silly, wouldn't it Paddy?

Agger is the best CB at the club, for me if he is  fit (and obviously not scoring own goals with gay abandon every game) then he starts.

Back to Sakho, I expect him to become a great CB and form a partnership alongside Agger going forwards, I just think he needs time, he certainly has great potential.

But you're essentially saying that form doesn't matter except when it does. You can't have it both ways mate.

Agger has given away a really silly penalty this season, and he has continued his poor marking from corners. The 3 playing now have done nothing to be dropped, so it's upto Agger to impress when he nexts gets the chance. He shouldn't just be handed a place because of his name, regardless of form.

For me the players who are performing the best deserve to play. And right now Sakho has no issues on that front.

That's what it means to take your chance, Skrtel waited; Kolo was injured for the ManU game and Skrtel took his chance. Agger got injured and Sakho took his chance. Now Agger has to wait for his chance to reclaim his place in the team.
