Pierre's quite incredible performances for us got me thinking...I can't honestly recall any centre half that I have ever watched with Pierre's pace, which is remarkable for a man of his size. He almost relishes forwards taking him on for pace and he never seems to lose the race. His aerial abilty both in defence and attack is brilliant, as is his defensive positioning, the only blot is his less than silky smooth distribution at times, but he seems to be able to kick with both feet. I've thought all the way back to Jack Charlton, a World Cup winner of course, and this seems fanciful I know, but I think Pierre has or will have the beating of him....different eras I know, but we had a handful of truly world class players in 66 that would get into any Premier League team today...Moore, Bobby Charlton, Jimmy Greaves and Gordon Banks. I just wish we could keep him.
