with the exception of Draper

Draper was fantastic in the 95/96 season.

That sort of reply wasn't funny the first time, and this is far from the first time.
Honestly, nornironvilla, all people are saying is that maybe you should calm down a little bit.

A blind man on a galloping horse could spot that we're not very good this season, it's not like you're fighting against a tide of public opinion trying to convince us of it.

Regardless Westwood has been excellent since he started getting in the first team, and he's going to be a quality player for us.

Hopefully Lambert will be given some funds for January as have been impressed with the majority of his signings so far

he has promise. Whether he has enough now to dig us out of trouble is another matter.

By the end of this season he could well be a key player for us. In fact, this ties in to a wider point about Paul Lambert's tenure.

The way MON left meant Houllier wasn't able to clear the place out and ended up facing resistance and under-performances from MON's lot. Then TSM was brought in at a time when, far from being able to clear out the dead-wood, he had to work with them as our best players were sold. His signings weren't great and it was very hard to feel in any way enthusiastic about a bunch of journey man who were overpaid and didn't have the ability they seemed to think they had.

This year has been our first proper clear-out in ages! Lambert got rid of many players who had been stinking the place out and has unearthed some hungry, up-and-coming prospects to replace them. Whereas last season it felt like our team were ambling through games they weren't enjoying, this season it feels like we have a bunch of ambitious youngsters who want to make it in the game. I think we are finally moving forward with a plan that could take us back to the right end of the table.

He did? Like who exactly?

Warnock & Hutton for two

And Collins for three, and in some respects Dunne for four.

Well not on his own, but if players get up to the level that Benteke, Lowton and Westwood have been showing and beyond we'll be ok. We need a combative midfielder alongside him though.

Westy is our new Barry. Said it elsewhere, will repeat it here. His passing is fantastic and he's calm and composed. Knows when to spread the play and knows when to keep it simple. Very impressed with him.

The thing that has impressed me is how easily he's made the step up from the fourth to the first division and how he seems to always pick the right option. If he continues to show the right attitude then he's got every chance of being a top class player.

Do not think we should be writing off KEA as an inportant MF he had a bad game yesterday by his standards but has been very good compared to say Reo C. He can break up play and can pass with a high success rate. Westwood is steadly becoming a very good player and will get better and better IMO. I am sure Lamberts scouts will have a few players identified for Jan ready to improve on what we have .....

Not writing KEA off, but he needs to strengthen up a lot. He gets knocked off the ball too easily.

I think KEA will come good, dont think that role suited him yesterday and his pathetic dive didnt help matters
