good shout highroad, i really thinkit all depends on the opposition. parker getting forward and bale surging through the middle is fine for norwich etc but i think that against the big teams arry would make sure we ar more orthodox.
the VDV thing is puzzling, he comes deep to get the ball ,taking it of parker or modders when really i would like to see him making a run creating space for ade etc.
i do feel though that while he is helping the team to win i can put up with his premadonna antics. he has class and the ability to change the game in a second. his 40 yard past to ade was class and the reverse passes he slots through split defenses. so until his his class drys up and he is inafective then im happy he is a spur. i think rotating him with daffy will help remind him he isnt the only star in the team.
