A footballless Saturday and here in jolly old Blighty I can tell you that direct and immediate action needed taking to prevent a severe attack of the Collywobbles setting in. There are only so many times a man can watch Carry On films…
Mind you. Nothing a Chinese meal for at least three ordered for one, several thousand ice cold beers and Sexy Beast on DVD can’t cure. Wallop.
The End of Season Survey was a success in terms of participation, a good couple of thousand joined in; so a big thank you to all those who had a go. Always appreciated.
Question 1. This was about the goalie situation. Interesting stuff. 58% of you want to shop again. Retaining Brad appealed to 35% and 6% of you would give poor old Gomes another spin. Carlo was on the floor here, I guess the Wembley fiasco didn’t help. Just 2% would give him another go.
Question 2. Kyle Walker. The people’s choice. 50% believe he needs coaching. 47% just wanted opted for ‘what a star’, with a brave lunatic fringe supporting the idea we play him as a winger.
Question 3. Benny Barnet. This was interesting. 84% said he wasn’t perfect, but he was first choice. The remaining 16% split themselves down the middle. 8% wanted shot of him. 8% suggested coaching.
Question 4. I do hope someone at the Club above the pay grade of Megastore Coat Hanger Manager is reading this. 93% want Vertonghen or similar. Only 7% thought that Eunice & Daws were the future. The jig is up. The existing pair are decent men, but we need to shop. And now.
Question 6. Pienaar. The man who never was. 64% want him just sold. The remaining 36% want him recalled.
Question 7. Adebayor. More sharp voting. 70% want him permanently on a deal that doesn’t cripple us, the other 30% don’t.
Question 8. This could be argued that it was a set up. But here goes anyway. 86% expressed shock at the quality of set pieces. 14% felt things were going just fine on the coaching front.
Question 9. This was about naming your most improved player. Top 3 were Kyle in pole with 35%, Sandro in second with 26% and Jake on 18%. Everyone else was in single figures.
Question 10. This was about naming your player of the season. Top 3 were Scotty in pole with 36%, Raging Kaboom in close second with 30% and Kyle with 11%. Everyone else was in single figures.
