no i wouldn't name all three that just be stupid in my opinion but i dunno unless he has a knock, which i hope not, you would have to fancy him over kanu or utaka surely, unless he isn't as fit as we were lead to believe or hes takn badly to the new regime hmm hope hes not a wasted loan (he is a loan right? lol)

My vendetta against Kranjcar is 'purely' personal .. I think he's crap and overrated Matt and just don't understand why all his 'lovers' still up for him .. You watch they wil claim he is man of the man or something... despite both the BBC & The Quay slating him in the last five minutes.. and there's a third of the game gone...

to say he is 'crap' is somewhat unfair - i too think we should sell if the right offer comes in, tbh i just do not feel that he is suited for our style of play, far more suited a side like arsenal?

I took the family shopping to Salisbury. Come 3 O'clock, I'm in betting shops, currys, anywhere with a tv to get an update. With less than 20 mins to go I enter a bookies the score is 0-0. 2 minutes later we score & I scream. Half a dozen men start giving the eyeball as I disturb the horse racing. Charlie Nicholas says it wasn't a pen, a harsh decision. That made me feel worse. I then get a text from my brother in Norwich asking for an update. So I'm texting 1-1. Then fck they score again. Sky says looked offside. I hoping mad & retexting my brother. Oh so glad we got a point. It made the rest of the day very bearable for my family.
