    Anyone see the Citeh game last night?

    Don't know about anybody else but having watched this game I would far rather we got Steve Ireland than Diarra from Pompey if we could prize him away fromtheir money. Thought he was tremendous and just the player to protect the back 4 at Spurs. What does anyone think about this idea?

    • he certainly played well, also read somewhere recently an article where corluka states his best position is as a holding midfielder, if he plays that position as well as he plays in defence then why not give him a try in that role? thudd seems to be improving in the tackling area as well at the moment so why spend if we don't need to? think overall the squad is shaping up nicely, still like to see another quality cb brought in, distin maybe? and of course another striker ;-)

      • Certainly agree regarding CB, that would also free up Corluka to show his potential at holding role..
        Hudd seems to have got back to his elaborate passing game and as you say is tackling better.
        I do wish somebody would teach JJ how to tackle. It's great to see midfielders helping out but he gives away so many freekicks in and around the box. He's becoming a liability especially coupled to our lack of defending from set pieces.
        I sure 'Arry will identify who he needs and hopefully gets the funds from Levy.

    • Get rid of Jenas and put Ireland in. Its a good idea. Plus Diarra i agree is excellent and would be a worthy purchase

      Ireland plays so much better without that floppy hair. I believe his team mates took the piss out of him so he cut it off in anger. Whereas Adebayor cut his hair off and was instantly shit again

    • We'd have no chance of prizing him away from their money, plus Diarra's more the type of player we need as we already have good players going forward
