Steven Caulker summer 2014 speculation.

Looks like he'll be available again:

Think a few sides will be after his services despite Cardiff's poor defensive record.

Gary Medel 11M, Steven Caulker 9M. Do they really justify price tags of that? No chance...

It would be nice to have a player like Caulker who will improve with age and his nationality will only enhance his value. But you could get the same quality player elsewhere for MUCH cheaper.

He's quite over-rated to be fair. & that means he's over-priced. Not saying I'd be disappointed if we signed him but he's not going to be cheap is he?

Caulker fits the criteria that Pulis would go for.

1) British
2) Premier League experience
3) Superb age

To be honest, he is exactly what we need. We need a centre back with genuine pace. It would allow us to defend a little bit higher up the pitch, and as much as we all love Damo and the season he has had, we need to plan for a long term replacement.

A back four of Ward, Dann, Caulker and ???? would be very Pulis-esque. However, I think he might just be out of our price range, and other clubs will surely be interested.

He's a tricky one to judge i think. Who knows how good he may or may not be in a side with an organised defence. However I am sure he won't be worth the risk with the kind of money they will be looking to recoup.

If spanking millions on a player who has been average at best for a whole year in addition to (doubtless) eye watering wages is the sort of progress we're looking to make next season, you can keep it.

My Spurs supporting friends never got what all the fuss was about - said he was hugely overrated & were very happy with the 9mil they got for him. They couldn't believe he was getting call ups for England.

Having said that - he was very good for Swansea in their first season in the Prem.

Tricky one like you say.

Would be superb under Pulis. And Pulis would be superb for him. But his price wont be cheap.....

Interesting that at a club with the 2nd worse defensive record in the PL their supposed best players are DCM, CB and GK.

I think Caulker is a good player but I think Pulis would make him in to an excellent player.

But I expect there will be plenty of interest and the fee he'll command would probably be out of our reach I would have thought.

Just goes to show what a manager and a bit of organisation can do.

Remember not so long ago many people were calling our back 4 mid table Championship standard.

And then add the likes of Dann who was relegated with Birmingham. And struggling with Blackburn. Mariappa was also struggling to make the bench this season at Reading when he joined us!

Pulis could do wonders for Caulkers carear.

It was on the beeb rumours that Spurs were interest, probably bollocks of course..

Would be an admission of a boob on there part for selling him in the first place.

Don't rate him at all and agree with Gilesy14's Spurs mate.. Had his pants pulled down by Camjam at Selhurst the by Punch with the awful defending at theirs.. Pops up with a few goals from set pieces but is always out of position and looks lazy..... Think Scott Dann has been a revelation but we do need another CB for competition and perhaps enhancement
No thanks... that's just my opinion

They bought Caulker. Then stuck someone like Fabio around him.

The thing is they overpaid to get their man but then stuck one half of the chuckle brothers next to him. That’s like building a drawbridge with 3ft thick solid Oak gate, then building the city walls out of chicken wire.

Caulker is a potentially great CB – but tell me we didn’t get a bargain on Dann. Stonking player.

Whoever we sign to replace Damo, may well be a better player, but they need to match him for spirit and attitude. Hard to find...

Probably a good player

BUT

For what he would cost we should really be spending it on trying to get more goals into the side. We could handle letting in a few more next season (which we probably will) if we add goals.

Score as few goals again and we could be putting big pressure on ourselves.
