    We have got to start with Stephens and Propper no question about it. The problem now is with Sidwell out for the season who should we bring in as back up Defensive Midfield. I would consider a swansong back home for Gareth Barry depending obviously on cost.

      Has the wing play been largely ineffective this season?
      I'd be surprised if you had written that if the club had bought a mobile striker, in the summer.
      Maybe ineffective was a bit harsh but, yeah, I don't think we've been as successful out wide this season compared to last.

      Arguably our best player Vs Chelsea. Didn't look out of place.

      What were you expecting from this season?
      More than last years 74 goals?

      Of course the team isn't as successful out wide as last season, but that's a long way from 'largely ineffective' esp when considering just how many chances have been created, and scored from the wings.

      Can't see CH breaking up a midfield two that has seen us to 12th at the half way stage.

      This again.

      'Hey Kayal you had a great game v a pub team, so well done for keeping the shirt'.

      'Hey Davy, I know you've been excellent all season, holding the midfield together and saving the defence from a barrage of attacks, but as Kayal played well in one game, I'm going with him now'.
      This. Despite Kayal running the show for large parts of the game on Monday, he's on the bench for me.

      That said, I'm not sure I'd trust Sir Chris to change things and bring him on even if either Propper or Stephens are having a nightmare. He does seem to have a blind spot with regard to using substitutes!

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      Sadly the only time we'll see Kayal is to hold on to a 0-1 lead with 15 minutes to go.

      I've been thinking about this and with our wing play being largely ineffective this season I'd like to see all three of them in the middle. Stephens sitting deeper, Kayal and Propper going forwards with Gross in his usual place and then Baldock and Murray up top.

      Of course it won't happen but good to ponder on.
      I'd drop Gross and stick Propper in his position. Good enough for the Dutch.

      Nothing "sadly" about it - I'd bite your hand off for that scenario!
