That is so true and one thing i have been saying over and over again, you cant buy fight and bottle and you cant playing for the shirt and these players have that.

Fight and bottle means nowt if you dont have the skill to go with it. We will see next season how much fight and bottle and more importantly skill these players have when they are playing against Tevez/Rooney/Gerrard/Torres and not players like Craig Mackail-Smith/Aaron McLean.

it's a balance though rotti......there's no point in having loads of skill but no bottle for a fight either like Owen, Duff, Bassong Viduka etc


we will struggle next season, there is no doubt about it but we are not going to magic up players like Tevez, Rooney, Gerrard and Torres.....It's more important to get players with the right character until we are an established PL side again

Aye but all of those players have been turned over this season at times when they shouldnt have been.

Also we have 29 or so games next season where the actual top top players will be nowhere to be seen.

Did anyone happen to watch the Burnley / Hull match? We are far better than either of those sides and they have still managed to do differing degrees of damage at times this season.

Hughton will get his chance, no doubt about it, and I think he will do ok. Yes we need players, but he will be wise to the fact that we need more pace and creativity through the middle, and up top - When he addresses that, and plugs the gaps in the squad with some cheap signings we will be well prepared and I would fancy us to not even be in a relegation battle.
