It occurred to me that I could do with a couple of names from the past returning to assist current teams I’m following.
As Leeds start their third attempt to escape the third tier of English football, it seems likely that star player Fabian Delph may be plucked away to the Premiership. A handy replacement would be the fiery Scot, able to lead the side from the front as he did with the promotion-winning and subsequently league-winning side of ’90 to’92. A fantastic playmaker, he was also a superb crosser of the ball ( I may also have to resurrect Lee Chapman to get on the end of those crosses ).
Ravi Bopara’s performances to date in the Ashes series are worrying. It’s fine to batter a second-rate and disinterested West Indian attack around, but he doesn’t currently look like a long-term England number three. I may have an answer. Moving Alastair Cook down to three would allow Boycott to return as a solid base alongside the in-form skipper Strauss. This would give a right hander/left hander opening partnership, backed up by a left handed number three and right handed number four. Boycott is also one of the few that can influence Kevin Pieterson, so he would be a useful guy to have in the dressing room.
I would just like someone to kick Didier Drogba and Robinho very hard. A return for the Liverpool legend of the sixties and seventies seems like a good option.
