    About Meireles

    How many out and out wingers in the prem? Valencia, Nani, Malouda, Downing, Wright Phiilips, Adam Johnson, Guttierez, Pennant, Etherington, N'Zogbia, Lennon, Bale and Petrov are probably a good start. We might not need so much pace against the smaller clubs as we have large periods of possesion high up the pitch but when we are playing against teams even as competent as Villa upward we need pace to have any threat on the break and to stop the ball coming back at us all the time.

    Its not so much about getting crosses in as we dont play with 2 strikers and Nando gets picked up in the box very easily so its more about having defenders on the back foot as well as stopping opposition full backs attacking more because of the ability to track back and cover.
