Your first choice centre back pairing?

Come on then, letís have this out. We all know last season Mama and Tomkins were our best first choice pairing but with the emergence and impact that Gary Cahill has had its put a good spanner in the works. That said, Dann was probably our best defender since he joined 5 years ago before his injury and regularly came up trumps with important goals, which letís face it, bar maybe JT, the others have lacked. Kelly is the ultimate pro, never causes a problem or moans and comes in when required and does a bloody good job time and again.

So, whoís your first choice pairing given all are fit (and letís say match fit)?

Name your combo?

Sakho - Tomkins
Sakho - Cahill
Sakho - Dann
Sakho - Kelly
Tomkins - Cahill
Tomkins - Dann
Tomkins - Kelly
Cahill - Kelly
Cahill - Dann
Dann - Kelly.

So far this season Cahill and Kelly. Bit of a headache for Roy though when all fit and up to speed. For me though Cahill has to feature. He's our best CB

Kelly Cahill, stick with them.

The problem comes if ward gets injured. Kelly will be shunted to RB.

Strange one as Tomkins / Sakho partnership so effective last season but Cahill and Kelly have the shirts right now .

Stick with Kelly & Cahill for now. I can see Dann going on loan in January.

If fully fit I would be very interested in seeing what a Cahill / Tomkins partnership would look like.

We have an imbalanced squad with a large number of CBs (5 of them) and CMs (7 of them), so i would play 3 at the back and 3 in midfield.
Guaita
Tomkins - Cahill - Sakho
Townsend ----------------- Van Aanholt
McArthur - Luka - Meyer
Ayew - Zaha

Or away at the big boys
Guaita
Ward - Tomkins- Cahill - Sakho - PVA
McArthur - Luka - McCarthy
Ayew
Zaha

Fully fit Sakho is still the best defender at the club. Kelly doesn’t deserve to lose the shirt yet though.

But eventually, Sakho and Cahill.

Given Sakho and Tomkins are injury prone, Iíd say that would be suicide to let Dann go even more so when you think Tomkins and Kelly can fill in at full back position. Iím sure he would at his age want to play more though.

Kelly has been excellent this season. Doesn't deserve to be dropped at the moment. I would stick with these two for the moment.

But it is a dilemma. Sakho at his best is our best centre back with his ability to play it out and break the lines of opponents on the press.

Harsh on Tomkins though considering last season .

Are we not better of placing faith in someone who could play for us on years to come?

It's a nice dilemma to have .

Maybe move out Dann and if Sam Woods isnít ready or not good enough bring in a younger defender, Jake Cooper at Millwall has been mentioned on the Transfer Forum.

Kelly often makes a mistake that costs us the game. I still don't trust him. Cahill and Sakho if he gets back to speed.
