    Dawson and Lennon are good players who have more good games than they have bad and they form part of a strong squad.

    Less than 6 months ago Dawson was nearly sold for 10 milliion and it was only just over a year ago that Liverpool were prepared to pay 20 mil for Lennon.

    If you sold them you would have to replace them and spend what another 20 mil?

    So keep them they are both worth having and Lennon can still be a match winner in fact his pace is one of the things that have been missing lately.

    This team has not started to gel yet so we may need the old guard to pull us through if things don't go so well.

    Because we have spent 110 mil doesn't guarantee success.

    Keep Lennon yes, but would we miss Dawson?, not sure we would, don't we have enough cover in that position?. He is a very good club man, but imo is prone to making some costly mistakes.

    2 good squad players & it is a squad game these days. You hope there will be plenty of games to go round for all the squad to be used and to all play their part. 17 games, nearly half a league season of games, if we want to win the Europa. I agree that we possibly have better players in the posistions ahead of Daws & Lennon now but who would you get in better to replace them as squad members? Not too many better available at the right price's . . . . .

    Caulker was not prepared to be on the bench
    Tying them up on long contract ensures that we get top value if we sell them. Do you remember Leonnon's performance against Sunderkand last year?

    Most defenders, especially CD make mistakes.Look at Jones, a current England player,yesterday against Sunderland. Cahill another England regular is always making costly errors. No I think we could do a lot worse if we moved him out.

    He's had some good games in Europe and with this seasons schedule we need as many experienced players as we can to stay fit.
