Balogun And Goldson First-choice CB Pairing?

Both were fantastic today.

Running into the space is what we’ve missed from centre half’s in recent years

Another bougherra and we’ve got a winner

Really like the look of Balogun so far.

If he’s naturally left footed, we might have our first choice CB pairing on today.

I’m not massively convinced by Helander. I know people who really rate him, but I always preferred Katić.
One game in, you could easily agree here.
(Apart from Helander v Katic)
My only caveat is that they were missing their top strikers.
That said, Goldson and Balogun looked the part today.

Balogun played well considering how long he's been with us.
I like Helander a lot too but injuries are a concern, I'd suggest Goldson might be looking over his shoulder, i say that as a fan of Goldson too.

Looks a quality addition, we have lacked a centre back that can take the ball forward from the back. It can create space when teams put everyone behind the ball.

He also has a turn of pace that none of our other defenders have
