Happy with that. He's a winner and gives us some much needed experience. Welcome.

YOLO - good decision Kolo !

Adds some experience & solidity to our defensive options - especially with Carra retiring.
Decent free transfer.

A very adequate replacement for Carragher (ie someone who should be 3rd choice CB) and rumour has it on a fraction of Jamie's wages.

LOL at Talkshite trying to make out he has been signed as a #1 CB

In theory an experienced centre half who'll be good back up for our first choice centre back pairing. Let's hope it turns out that way. Welcome Kolo  :)

Fairly pleased with this signing. No immediate transfer cost, and lower wages. Will do a job.

Just wondering whether Skrtel/Coates or both are going no.

That right peg hits it and you see the future arc of the ball and time goes al gluey like a Dali painting, and for a second there's a 20yr old StevenGerrard and your young self cheering him on through the prism. His big smile fades in an the net is shivering and J.Hart's trying not to look grateful for the privilege of being that close to greatness

Good physical presence at the back and adds height to our defensive line up too, something we've been lacking.

he is 6' tall.  not exactly massive for a central defender.

If it's saving us money towards our first choice centre back or 2 of them ,then it's a good bit of business by the club
I'm sure the Man City scouts that we have now know if he's still got it in him to perform at the highest level

Edit: No he isn't Glen and Joe Cole both won the league at Chelsea cheers NIRed and Djimigotamedal :wave
