Hobs...think we may be in a minority here and know that Jason didnt want to turn this thread into a discussion of Andy C and his time with us but he is STILL on the books and onlyout on LOAN. Like u think he was brilliant in the air capable of winning everything up there from high long clearances out of deep defense and goalkicks etc to fast high crosses from the wing IF anyone was capable of delivering them to him ? He had a dynamite left boot and could turn very deftly on the proverbial sixpence rare for a lad of his size. Plus I liked the way he was capable of putting it about in the box eg his contribution v Uniturd at Anfield last season the idea of accepting 10 mill for the lad seems ludicrous especially considering the goal drought we have suffered so far this season with only Suarez seemingly capable of finding the onion bag ? Hes been very unlucky with injuries and imo deserves another shot at making the big time with us as u say hes only 23 or maybe just 24 doesnt seem like an old man to me. 12 mill for Sturridge a guy Chelski dont want ? Im not sure hes of the calibre we need Uniturd were prepared to put out 28 mill squid for RVP and what age is he 28 ? You get what u pay for and RVP seems to be paying off in spades for Uniturd this season wheraswe would rather opt for relative youth and half the price all the time but are we buying real quality or simply buying in 2nd rate players ? To qualify that I think Tom Ince is the real deal and looks like he will fit the bill hes top scorer in Championship Div with 13 goals but Sturridge Im dubious of.
