Outside the top five clubs how many clubs have two CB's that play the ball out of defence? We actually have two a our club, neither of who were fit tonight, but for fucks sake we're not Arsenal or Man U just yet. Some people need to get a reality check
Fucking hell Jarvis, Im not asking him to be Costercurta - There is a difference between being a 'ball playing centre half' and having a half decent ability to pass the ball 10 yards without giving it away.
I'm not suggesting he should be putting Bent through from 60 yards with raking balls but he should be able (At 40 odd grand a week) be able to pass the ball sensibly and with a bit of composure - His passing at times is worst the schoolboy - even his heading when no one is around him he will loft it up and aimlessly, he is clearly capable of directing a header to a player to have made it pro so how come he cant do it in a game???
