Defenders slip away

Apparently Mark Hughes has a three man wish list for centre half: Matthew Upson, Joleon Lescott and Kolo Touré.

But two recent developments have worked against us:

Kolo Touré has been reinstated in the Arsenal defence after injuries to Silvestre and Gallas. Touré was captain for the game against Bolton on Saturday.

Joleon Lescott has also moved inside to centre back, in the absence of Joseph Yobo, and so has no more of the 'played out of position' greivance.

And with West Ham playing hard to get on Scott Parker and Craig Bellamy, Matthew Upson looks quite unlikely.

So where does that leave us? Alex?

I'd like to think it is simply a question of turning to Plan B, and enviable list of excellent continental signings ripe for the plucking, afterall, he made some decent signings for Rovers.

Agger - not getting a regular game but experience of Prem and good quality.

I'd love Agger but don't think we can prize him away from Anfield.
