Even if we make it all the way to the final, our CL games will represent only about a quarter of next year's games meaning that Alex would be eligible for about 75% of games. To me, thats a pretty good amount of games (so far this year van Buyten has played a little less than that). So what it comes down to, is wouldnt you rather have Alex playing 3/4 of our games instead of van Buyten? And wouldnt you like to have a bit more depth at CB considering how often Boateng has been shifted out wide?
Our defense is good enough for the BL, we really need help in the CL. I don't want to see DvB's slow ass get burned by Aguero or Messi. If we signed Alex he'd only play BL games not the CL games where we actually need him. At the beginning of I wanted Alex mainly so he could play CL games for us. Now I just don't see the point, I'd rather buy a younger and not cup tied player who can play CB/RB.
