Only reason we'd need another midfielder was If someone was about to leave! Leonard??

I had a dream last night in which we signed Adam Barrett.

I believe the football rumours site subsequently ran with that this morning.

Going too far with the old players now. Let's create some new history for ourselves, not keep harking back to the glory years.

Don't see anything wrong with it myself if they can still do the job and, more importantly, we can afford it.

We're strong down the middle but couldn't he be used as a winger? What with a lot of games coming up he could be alternated with Atkinson or Hurst.

He struggled with back injuries in his 20's so God knows what he's like now. Can't see him being fit enough to be a winger now.

He hasnt played as a winger for some time and at 35 isnt going to have the legs for it.

Think his best days are behind him sadly, just don't see where he would fit in at the moment.
