Silvestre was the worst of the lot, worse than Squillaci in my view. Looking back it's actually quite funny that Wenger had him and a 35-year-old Sol Campbell in central defence when we were trying to win the league.
Wenger shouldn't have been allowed to sign centre-backs. He's only ever signed about four decent ones - Campbell, Toure, Koscielny and Mertesacker. He averages one good centre-half every five years.

I won't consider Mertesacker a good defender. He is slow and despite his height, weak in the air. And Toure was converted from a DM to a CD. But I agree with u Wenger should not be allowed to buy defensive players with his poor transfer track record.
