I never wanted to sign Terry but, and I may have just misremembered, but I don't recall us surrendering too many leads the season he played for us.

Imagine how many points we would have if we were better at defending leads. We could have beaten some of the best teams in the World and be looking at possible European football next season, instead of constantly worrying how pish like Norwich are getting on.

A couple of calm heads wouldn't hurt. Maybe up front, someone with a bit of nous who can run down the clock while still offering a goalscoring threat.

Cavani!

Hi never wanted Terry either, especially with our track record in the last 10 years with players at the end of their careers. He proved me completely wrong. His commitment, attitude and character was one of the biggest surprises Iíve had in football. He was the complete opposite in all that I thought he would be.

We definitely could do with a player or two I like him and Snoddy. Just to help the young team along. Attitude has to be priority as long as their legs actually still do work.

Thatís the point, they have still got to be able to function physically but its that extra bit of nous experience brings which helps players around them.
Pires legs had gone so he couldnít help.
Yes even Whelan for  10 20 minutes would not be a disaster.

Pires is a differrent case though, the window had shut and we had awful injuries and he was probably the best option of the free agents. If it had been during a transfer window I very much doubt we'd have signed him.

This may be proved wrong at the end of the game, and I hope it is, but come up with some sort of way to vary tactics Dean. Your inability to change a game and unwillingness to change system when required is becoming a real problem.

It was, but thankfully the new owners wonít care about the money if they have to pay him off.

He needs to earn that new contract, because right now, itís simply not good enough.

Poor at dealing with 3-5-2s given how we've played today and at Wolves.

Insane and completely unnecessary
