Everyone keeps saying we need height at the back.

But who do they mean? There are very few options.

You have:

No.1: Zat Knight, 6'6" (West ham); not sure about ability.

No.2: Dennis Lawrence, 6'7" (Swansea); not good enough.

No.3: Philippe Senderos 6'2" (Arsenal); maybe this year, if he stays.

No.4: Christopher Samba 6'5" ( Blackburn); strong but slow; I still like him, though.

I don't really know anymore. Can anyone add to this?

Who could we actually sign that's this tall and good at the same time?

Where can I comment?
