well said nick. the amount of great runs defoe makes is superb. his movement is great.
also his link up play has improved hugely over the last few years. he is an accurate passer & could do good little through balls. he has improved his upper body strength which is why he can score goals like the 1st 1 against the hammers.
the thing is he was hot last year when he played, he was just criminally under used by harry. which in the was a big reason why we got 4th & not 3rd.
but as john said, somehow we keep playing average-poor but still pick up results.
u cant keep doing that. great teams win when they play badly, but they also play well for most of the time!
i really dont fancy us against everton away! especially the way we are playing & the fact we only have a full 2 days off.
