Re: CC final round

Yorkshire safe

Lancs must get 300 and win, there are 257-7

Also Notts must be bowled out for less than 300 and lose

Re: Joe Hart and the 'fan'

I still prefer Heaton. My analysis is that the defenders play better for Tom as there is a mutual confidence. It follows that Tom knows the plan and is places himself in the best position. He will never therefore appear as spectacular as Hart. Hart has played well but I do wonder whether Tom would h...

Re: Pope or Heaton

Maybe the reason Hart faces the most shots is because he does not organise the defence like Heaton or Pope.

Sure he made good saves but if had set the defenders right he would no need to

I felt very safe when Tom played against Olympiacos and only conceded as we were stretched late looking for goals

Fortunately it isn't fans who decide who is and who isn't wanted. It cant be denied that Wells was an odd signing and, with the benefit of Hindsight, Walters was a poor one.

We could have afforded £7/8m but why spend money on a player that would hardly play and waste the budget when we also need a striker.
