Re: Are Mensah and Bramble as good as we think?
I don't think Bramble is as good as some make out, but we were always going to struggle against that. Carew is the best target man in the league and something Carroll should aspire to. Jones played badly but he's still big in the air, and then when you add in their centre backs, it is the land of the giants.
Every throw in in our half is pretty much a freekick with 4 monsters in there. We successfully dealt with about 90% of them, but they had so many that they scored 3, with help from the officials.
