Joking aside Colin I bumped into Pritch yesterday and he's lost more than a couple of stone, looks fitter than when he played and healthy. Looks younger than his 40 years :) I think he's a lot happier now he can sleep at night!
The hardest part about moving on is learning not to look back!!

Ha ha Jason permatan ! But not as daft as the rumours today namely Platt or Shaw, hardly crowd favourites were they, hopefully something better on the horizon to build on the performance today.

Nothing would surprise me ! It does our manager no favours if it comes true, he needs the fans on his side this would not help one bit.

Yes, its much better to play fullbacks and centrehalves in midfield than actually sign some midfielders.

We all know we need midfielders just not shaw and platt. They weren't good enough last time so what's changed?????

100 percent agree but they need to be half decent, we have seen them both and neither were very good to say the least, in fact the 3 in mid today were effective and better options for sure, we need to move forward not backwards. If they are the best we can get we may as well give up and I'm not alone in that opinion !

Whilst i'm sure Witton will be top of Steven Gerrard's list of prospective clubs if he chooses not to renew his Liverpool contract, in the meantime we have a glaring hole in our squad that needs filling with players that are a) available, b) affordable, and c) willing to come to Witton and play for a team deep in a relegation dogfight.

A week ago we were all moaning at Barnes being played in midfield, now we're unhappy that we MIGHT sign certain players who naturally play in the position in which we are most lacking.

Obviously i'm keeping my fingers crossed that Yaya Toure will be in the squad on Tuesday, but if that deal falls through i'll take small improvements in the squad for the time being.

Last season Pritch had to try out a lot of duds upfront before we finally got Titch back in. But you work with what you can bring in until you are able to bring in someone better. And as you know better than most CJ, that's how football at this level works.

November isn't a great time to be trying to attract players.

And to be honest, in Joe Shaw's case at least, he's always done well against us for Trafford and was unlucky to suffer a seriously injury when he signed for us therefore never doing himself justice as an Albion player. He is also a top bloke and is probably the kind of guy that the current dressing room needs. The first time we signed him it was considered something of a coup too.

Maybe we should wait to see how he or any other player actually does for us before we start laying into them.

Like you say Robbo Joe is a top lad and he was just starting to fit into the team when he got injured. If he can stay clear of injury he will be an asset.
