The fact is with Alex brown playing mostly on the right we have only got Mickey, Danny and Tim o for the two center mid roles and all have had injurers so far this season but we have five forward with another on recall for the two forwards spots it seems a bit strange to me...
As Jay says in his journal its a budget decision , simple as that.
I don't think I'm alone in saying this doesn't convince me!
The way we are playing currently we don't need any midfielders they get so little of the ball unless they are defending, with the Stoke style of football we are playing which consists of constantly lumping the ball from back to front all game long, I am amazed they don't get stiff necks constantly looking up, we need to play the game on the ground and pass it around like we did at the start of the season, anyway I realise this is about Ben leaving so I had better get back on track, it's a real shame he has gone but we need to move on and fingers crossed Jay has made the correct decision, time will tell
“ What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love"
Yes, we might as well not bother with the midfield, certainly at home. Perfect playing surface, we played good football on it in pre-season...since then it's been lumped up to Shaun's head time and time again, and is very frustrating when we've got "ballers" (and the Lyester) in the middle
With regards to Ben, something's just not right. I just can't believe it's simply down to footballing or even financial reasons
