Like a lot of people I'm not a big fan of Lucas Neil.....But come on he did turn down liverpool, so he's almost a Blues legend already!....Seriously though, he has been touted over the last few seasons as a very good player, bit long in the tooth, but a good old'un is way better than an average young'n!
He set's his stall out with the price he believes people should pay for his services, if he delivers, then I for one would be glad to have him around for a few seasons.
As for the Heitinga holding midfield thing!.....Against Fulham, not that impressive hey!
Well in that second half against Fulham, who WAS?...When Jags first came he played a few games in that role, and to a man we thought he was very poor....hell we even questioned his signing in general.My point being, he's turned out to be a great player, ok, mainly in the central defence, but early days most fans would have been happy for us to move him on.Heitinga has played one game, his first in the prem in a team who look anything but assured, on a day when his team mates didn't exactly offer him their services, it could still work out, if he (Heitinga) thinks he can do it, surely he must be given at least a chance, before we condem him to the scrap heap with.......Jagielka.
Someone....I think, has said that he didn't really look very big!.....what unlike old "lanky" Carsley
who it appears did do a too bad a job for us.
