They are clearly the 2 that have had the biggest impact, whether they are the BEST 2 wingers we've had is another question... (But they got my vote too!) Often wingers are hugely talented footballers, but suffer from inconsistency. Interesting that the two here probably didn't have as much natural ...

Re: Graham Alexander

Cotterill did bring him in to play midfield and that’s where he made his debut. When Duff did his cruciate he moved Grezza to right back until he got a right back in on loan to cover. That deal was done but then blocked by Flood. So to suggest it was Coyle’s doing is not correct. Interesting though...
