It's a good suggestion for Lambert Jase, he's a Liverpool fan too so he would fight for every ball. You said something about Xabi though which surprised me. You said he wasn't a monster. Personally I think he's one of the best in the world. His technical ability and tactical awareness is second to none! I thought he was the best player at the Euros last year and his passing is at least as good as Stevies. In other words he would be a tremendous asset to the boys and he could help Allen in particular improve his game.
