    Clean sheet, 1-0 or 2-0 our way. Live the dream!

    Dunne... I'm just not convinced. Good, but not great, esp with current form, although my objection previously was that he clearly likes being captain, demanding respect and organising the team, but with the lack of leadership we currently have that might be a good thing. However, I do think now the team’s grouping and getting results the natural leaders in the squad will become clear. I also wonder if he and Woody might clash, and they’d need to be solid partnership as a (realistic considering King’s fitness limitations) first choice partnership... should be ok, but it’s a consideration. Distin seems more likely to slot into the team without too much upheaval imo.

    Dawson... you all know I really want him to come good (surely you can’t be a superhero for a season and rubbish the rest of your life?), and I think having Harry on board will be his make-or-break chance – if anyone can get the best from him it’s Redknapp. It will also be interesting to see how he reacts this season, he’s gradually dropped further down the pecking order, he’s at the point where he’s either going to decide to stay and fight for a place or to cut his losses and go somewhere like Fulham. I reckon it’ll be the former, while we’re fighting on four fronts he’ll have enough playing opportunities to make the breakthrough if he gets good enough and I like to think he loves the club (as much as any professional does these days), but we’ll see...
