You just signed Caneira. Why insist on playing him on the left, when he's much better on the middle?

i also think caneira plays better as a CB, even though he will be a bit like our very own r.rocha, able to make any position in defense = bombeiro

but unless sporting does transfer a more "natural" LB....i reckon he'll be the one

Ronny (or whatever's the guys name) looked like a good option. And Tello can do the job (badly, I know). So, why not take a chance with the brasilian, and keep Caneira as a backup for LB?

A club like Sporting, fighting to win the league, the cup and to do well in the CL, needs at least 2 players for each position. This means that we really need 4 players that an do the CB postion and 2 for each wing of the defense.

At the moment we have 3 CBs (Polga, Tonel and the young Miguel Veloso) and 2 LBs (Ronny and Caneira).

I feel that we should buy a good experienced CB and the Paraguayan Júlio César Cáceres, currently playing at River Plate, seems to be a good option. I am all for giving the chance to young players to show their value as soon as possible but in a season like this I feel that 1 young player is enough amongst the 4 CBs needed.

About the position where Marco Caneira should play I feel that although he is a good back up for the CB position he should go on playing as a LB. Although he is not that good attacking he showed last season with Sporting and also while he played for Valencia before Quique "Loser" Flores took care of the team, that he can do that position very efficiently.

Ronny seems to be an excellent player and I just think it's great that finally we seem to have again good players down the left wing.

Rodrigo Tello is an average player, surely not brilliant, but very loyal and never stops fighting.
