Not surprised but like a few of you I also wish we were keeping him until January. When both have been fit I actually think Klavan has performed as well as Matip. Young Phillips looks like he has some nice qualities but I wouldn't feel too comfortable if he was starting in a PL game, based on pre-season he hasn't looked the part the way TAA did from the get go. It looks like Gomez is now likely to be our 3rd choice CB (behind VVD & Lovren) but again, i'm still not fully convinced by him. He looks easy on the eye in terms of composure on the ball and he has some pace BUT he doesn't really attack the ball the way a CB should (on the deck and in the air). But good luck to Klavan because he was a solid performer when called upon and like all of our CBs he would have looked a lot better playing alongside VVD.
