    The leaked document actually stated that there was an option and that we’d agreed to keep him until next summer.

    Izzy rejected us which was brutal and Lustig is mulling over a 2 year deal which is even worse..

    We didnt miss Bitton wen he wasnt in the side.
    Good on the ball when he time to pick his passes, but hopeless in the air and not strong enough in the tackle.

    If we want to progress we have to be looking to sign better players than Bitton. The fact that we are attempting to resign Bitton, Izzaguirre and Lustig is worrying.

    Id imagine Lustig could play another two years as a starter in Sweden, where as he wouldn't be guaranteed that here

    I think Bitton was coming on to a decent game at centre-back before he got injured. To me he is similar to Ajer only better in the air and a better passer of the ball, Ajer i'd say is more naturally defensive and gets stuck in more but Bitton was not bad, I think he's a good option as a 4th choice centre-back and centre-mid.

    Bitton is nowhere near as good as Ajer in the air. Ajer is a far better centre back than Bitton. Ridiculous man.

    I think Bitton is our best in the air now, him and Ajer are decent at our own box but in the oppositions box Ajer for me is a shitebag hes bigger than anycunt we play but he never attacks a ball or tries to score - Bitton who seems a bigger shitebag actually tries to win headers in the oppositions box.

    Would disagree with that part, don't know how many times we've seen Ajer miss complete sitters. Not just including headers, he does try he's just * awful with putting the ball in the back of the net

    100% disagree with all of that. Would say Bitton is easily worse and should never be getting used as a CB.
    In no way should a team our size be going into a season or a champions league campaign without fit defenders. Its fine when we play lesser teams in thr league and we can get away with it. But its against the stronger teams when we will get punished.
