Over the years we have a Little habbit of signing out of contract players over 30

Athletico Madrid have 3 players in the final 6 months of contract

D. Godin 32
F. Luis 33
Juan Fran 34

Would you take a gamble on all or either of these players for a season?

Godin has signed for inter. But I would definitely have taken a punt on him.

No, none of them. Two are full backs which is a hugely physically demanding position, especially in the EPL. Where one of them has never played and the other one has but struggled. Godin has been great, but I think Italy is the best place for him at this stage in his career. For as much as he has acted as a mentor for Giminez, Giminez has acted as cover for his lack of pace.

I would have selected him and FL as he is better than young and Shaw and would have prob gave Shaw food for taught.

( I'm sure many of us taught Smalling and Phil Jones would have learned of Rio and Vidic? I doubt they even bothered to watch and learn ).

You learn mentality, how to approach games, maybe even a certain amount of how to read a game (although most of that comes from experience) . You can't learn talent off of other players.

Smalling and Jones lack the talent.

Luis would at best be back up for Shaw, he couldn't hold down a place in the Chelsea team when they had no real quality at LB. The league was too quick for him 3-4 years ago, I doubt he has sped up as he's aged.

At the moment, Godin can easily slot in along side Lindelof. A good organizer and reader.
But it's 2 years too late.
