Nigel Spink - Credit Where It's Due
I think we're all in agreement that the signing of Simon Mignolet is looking like an absolute bargain, and the credit for his signing has to go to Nigel Spink.
Steve Bruce said at the time that the recommendation to sign Mignolet came from Spink, who originally did all the scouting homework on him and went out to Belgium to watch him play numerous times.
Also, Gordon, who was no doubt playing very well even before Spink started coaching him, seems to have improved another level based on last seasons performances under the coaching of Spink.
Often the backroom staff don't get enough credit, but I feel that the role Nigel Spink is playing at SAFC shouldn't be overlooked.
You come at the king, you best not miss.
