Alan Curbishley said a couple of weeks ago that he thought some players wouldn’t want to join a team threatened with relegation. Talk about a self fulfilling prophesy. Instead of engaging mouth before brain, Curbishley should be talking up our prospects rather than talking them down. Shaun Wright-Phillips now looks to be a lost cause, and according to reports this morning, Smertin is on his way to Fulham. I won’t shed any tears over that one.
My other moan of the morning concerns Lauren. He is a very good player, but the fact of the matter is we have four perfectly good right backs in Spector, Paintsil, Mears with Dailly as backup. Spector has been one of our best players this season.
We should be concentrating on finding a.centre back. Matthew Upson would do very nicely thank you.#end
