At the start of the campaign I was upset with the quality of signings. I for one slated the signing of Nigel Reo-Coker. How wrong I was. Although not gifted he does his job well and gives 110%.
I have been VERY impressed with the team this season. The jury is still out on Harewood but building the squad is what we need to do. Zat Knight has surprised me as he has done well along with Curtis Davies who I believe will have a very bright future. Ashley Young’s price tag was massive but for me has proved his worth. His delivery especially from set pieces is top drawer.
No matter where we finish this year and how we perform Martin Laursen will be getting my Player of the Season vote. He has been absolutely superb. The knee injury is now behind him and for 3 million pounds we have had a result in his services. Great in the air both defending and set pieces coupled with tremendous reading of the game and tenacity. Martin O'Neill needs to sort out his new contract as the other defenders can learn a lot from him.
I think I can now say I trust MON with his signing ability as I am a very judgmental person. Nothing to moan about so far. We all know that the games we drew this season we should have won, now by those standards we'd be in definite nosebleed territory !
I did my sums and winning the drawn games would have put us second ! Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I think we could use Shaun Maloney better as I believe this kid has lots of potential and I am glad he is staying. I would like to see him play behind John Carew and Gabby Agbonlahor. I believe all we need now is a pacey right sided midfielder and obviously 2 orthodox right-backs at least along with a clinical forward. Apart from that, no complaints so far and my thanks to the side making my weekends more enjoyable. Bring two or 3 more in this transfer window and that fourth spot may not seem so distant as it has in the past 10-15 years !
Keep up the good work lads and well done !
