    richard dunne

    morning sfer, yep agree entirely with your remarks about dunne, distin would also be my preferred choice, apparently we nearly got him before he went to pompey, but comolli the clown said he was too old(allegedly!), but yep we definitely need cover, imo it's a shame daws has dropped off though as he did look promising to start with ;-)

    • I like Daws from a spirit and determination point of view - I just wish he would leave the football to someone else! How many times did you ever see Bobby Moore try a 50yd pass?

      Not putting him in that class obviously but just making the point that if he just did what he is good at and then laid it off, keeping possession, then the whole team would benefit.

      • maybe with time and 'arrys guidance he'll come good ;-)

      • I think Les (I wonder if he playes the piano?) was one of those players who got slammed when the whole team were playing crap. He was hit like Robinson and you could see his confidence take a nose dive.
        He was a good player when he came in with Reid and he still is. IMHO I still think he can replace Ledley - but the defence is difficult to judge when an element is not right - at the moment Gomes is the weakest link - and that affects the whole back line. When all five functioned as a unit a couple of seasons back, Les looked the part - so it seems that 'arry has to work on that aspect. Woody (and Ledley) on the other hand doesn't appear to be a 'confidence' player - he just goes and plays his game.

        I still think we made a bid mistake in letting Robinson go. But, it is done and he won't be back. Hopefully Gomes is just a 'confidence' player and this spell is just that, a short spell of insanity!

        PS who is going to create the 'Tonight's Game' thread - I'll jump in here and predict a 3-2 score, with both teams (esp Pool) fielding fringe players.
        Hud,Modric and Pav
        Keane and Torres (who comes on in the last 15 minutes and scores an absolute blinder)
