He obviously more athletic than samba so definitely needs to play against any team with pace. Big mistake getting rid of baker in hindsight

There's a difference between 'getting rid' and letting  a player leave who doesn't want to be here.

So the day it's asked where he is, he'll now almost certainly be back in the squad.

And on the same theme,  this is what will appear on the big screen when it's announced he's a starter.

That could have been used regularly for home games over the last 6 years or so.

He's got a decent attitude on him and did a nice turn by one of DBTW family members the other day. Time to dig deep.

He could always put Samba up front and Hogan into centre half, because if Hogan can protect our goal as well as he stays away from the opposition, Premier League here we come.

What a start to the year, 5 goals, a clean sheet and @O_J_murphy91 delivers me and my friends another winner. #utv #morethanluck

Wanted to give a big shout out for Tommy.  Whatever his limitations he has always been a first class professional and kept his dignity throughout.  Micah Fcukin Richards take note.

Hear hear

I bet there are good few Pro's out there who could learn by his attitude

One of which, Stephen Ireland I heard is back in the Stoke squad!!!!  Fuck me how much money has he earned in the last years without ever playing - I actually thought he had retired

Living down hear a lot of Bournemouth fans said he would be 8\10 every week. He has been absolutely awful until the last few games. Very happy for him and hopefully he has set the standard.

He had me shaking like a shitting dog whenever he played, until the last two games.

Fair play to him.
