The more rage the better!, but he is still to choose, so nothing to celebrate for us yet.
From what I have seen (You Tube I know!) he does look a good prospect.

StE wanted him loaned back from what I've seen, although with Toby likely to go could do with someone this season. I hope there is some truth to this though,

I suspect we offered over the amount asked for to get him for this season rather than loan back

That and because we are better than those ****s Arse

There was the theory that Sanchez was Toby’s replacement and any new defender would slot into Sanchez’s berth. So a lower key signing for Toby might not be out of the question. Especially with Foyth so highly regarded.

Good point but I would like to see 3 if not 4 top quality CBs - if we are going for the biggies we have to GO big ...

I think this may prove once and for all that Toby is off.
