      He's man of the match the game before last (against RB leipzig), and he's a young cb in foreign league so I think it will be fair to give him a little bit more time.

      His problem is hes in a side that needed a main centre half. Someone who could slot in straight away and play.

      We are not in a position to bring a cebtre half through his development. We dont have a midfield tbat covers for him or a recognised centre half he can  develop with.

      Coming here at this stage of our season just wasn't the right fit. If he keeps his place here then he might learn alongside Virgil but is he going to get games when the 5 injured CBs and midfielders who were playing there return?

      Got to remember only 20 but is rash but I think Phillips is as well surely Davies needs looking at 25 Yr Old plenty of experience  what have we to lose

      To me he's struggling with the pace of the game. He looked sound in the Leipzig game. Just said it in the match thread but going back to Brighton game, Philips and Davies should of been tried.

      Right now it's time we don't have. Personal choice right now try the two English lads at centre-back in league games and use Kabak with possibly Fab or Hendo in Champs League games.

      Agree the pace of Leipzig game suited him whereas yesterday and with the wind he buckled a bit . Wouldn't play him and Phillips together,  they both need a calming influence next to them Davies has to play against Sheff Utd but wouldn't be surprised to see Fab go back in there with either Kabak or Phillips

      I quite like Ozan he seems to have adapted to our style of play after a shaky start. If he keeps improving like this £18 mill will be a snip in the Summer to sign him on a permanent.

      Had his best game in a red shirt last night by far. Surprised he hasn't had a few more posts in this thread. Some early signs of a workable partnership with Phillips, we really need them to do well together.

      Both are physical defender. Best solution until this Summer.

      My jury is obviously still on.

      Real concern here is his pace or at least while him and Nat are the partnership.

      He has pluses but the question marlks are there on certain areas

      Not sure yet - but I’m certainly not getting on his back yet, I would love him to be a success

      A few more games will show if there is a consistent improvement and the rest is up to Jürgen.

      In any case we need to sick with these two now, let them build a proper partnership, yes we may concede a few more but we'll also score a lot more with a more balanced midfield.

      The potential is there for him to be a good CB.

      Now it's about how he develops.

      I think that’s what a lot of people fail to realise... he’s a kid. Not a ready to go world class player, even Phillips is older than him by a good few years.

      Nope. Too small (1,86m) and too slow. You can't change both parameters at this point. He'll be average.

      His issue is our issue and for the purposes of this season our need was for a centre half for the here and now.

      Kebak and Davies were not short term fixes and more long term projects. The club went down the route of exploiting market opportunities which may pay off big time in the end but for our league campaign was never going to be the quick fix.

      Training video shows Kabak and Thiago winning a head tennis tournament, taking the final over Mane and Phillips (it was either the final or some kind of challenge match at the end of training).

      He's basically got a 10-match trial going forward. I like his chances of staying.

      Continues to get better and better as he gets more used to the team and set up. Will never beat Mane or Salah to a foot race, but there's definitely a player there. Was also impressed when late in the game he took the ball in the box and ran it through the midfield and if not for that handball by the Wolves player he puts Salah through on goal.

      He's improving and if he continues, I would keep him and Nat with Gomez and VVD and would sell Matip.
