WANTED - Defender or two

At the end of last season we all drew up a list of who could go, thinking that if most of the list went it would be good bizz. However Daniel Levy has embraced this window and a number have gone and if we believe the ITK (yes I know, just go with it) we could find ourselves short at the back. With Gallas, Bassong and Khumalo all linked away.

So in my 'gang of 25' for a 60 game season I start from the position of 9 backs(5 CD 4 FB). IF this was to pan out we would have in the middle Kaboul, Vertonghen (pretty please) Caulker, Dawson and A.N. Other.

This 5th man isn`t looking at too much game time (yes depending on the manager) but could well find himself on, off the bench in the Europa league, coming in at end of season etc. So do we look at a 'Nelson type' seasoned pro who can step into tight cup game. After all Nelson didn`t let us down and possibly explains Olsson link earlier in window? Or do we want a younger less experienced player? But with all the older CDs leaving this window will we attract a good player for this role?

Two other points 1) Caulker is (I think) a free pick still next season 2) The joker in the pack - King. Who I previously said should retire but... Should we have held on to Uvini in that case? Or do we put a stop on Bassong leaving and keep him till manager has clearer view and release him next window or 2?

Fullbacks - Walker and Benny. Then Naughton who I like and would keep but must get lots of game time. Plays both sides. Do you risk going with 3 and loaning out Smith with a recall built in? Or do you keep him at the Lane but with limited game time? Smith, like Caulker is a free squad pick for the season, which may allow for the option of retaining players or having an inflated squad, just in case. As for Rose if the Baggies want him, yes go, learn and make mistakes and then we can see if he will cut it at PL level.

The other point is that we have some midfielders who can drop back but is that the best use of them ? Well gents, thoughts?
