Like you say, we have been crying out for a proper no nonsense centre half. We haven't had one for over a year now since Guri got injured and the rapid decline in the team's fortunes began. What concerns me is that the Manager has taken so long to rectify this situation (if rectify it he has). It should have been his main priority during the close season. The lack of stability at the centre of defense and the resulting soft goals conceded adversely affects the confidence of the whole squad. It is similar to 2016/2017 when Gary Mac almost got us relegated despite our strong squad, when he took far too long to recognise that our goalkeeper was suffering a massive crisis of confidence. Thankfully just in time he signed Tom Lovelock (what a signing that was!) and we managed to avoid relegation on the last day of the season (it would have been embarrassing to have a stand at SJP named after the only manager in Hendon's history to have got us relegated).
