So the news has just come out that Richard Dunne will be out injured until the New Year. This information has been infact confirmed by Paul Lambert during the pre-match press conferences.
“I would say he is out to the new year, the way it is going at the moment. – Lambert
We don’t have many numbers in central defence, and with Vlaar and Dunne out injured; that’s all our experienced defenders gone. If Lambert has funds available during the transfer window I’m fairly confident that we will have a new defender and hopefully one with a little experience.
Maybe we could try to bring Shawcross in? Or an international like N’Koulou or take a risk by trying out Douglas from PSV?
