I agree, Hoult was the first change bring on the next. Did the defence look happier passing back and so on?
Curtis needs to move on for his own sake, he feels like a big fish in a small pond now, and has stopped trying to improve as a player, I think if he went to a Champions league club he would get that extra spur to progress again. That would benefit England more than Albion though.
How long have we been asking for a new striker someone of real class, when did we have 2 top scoring strikers, so when one isn't firing the other will be.
Johnathan Parkin from Hull scored 6 in 13 games? Alan Lee from Ipswich 8 in 14 games? Kris Boyd - Rangers 8 in 11 games Ian Hulme Leicester 7 in 13 games? Grzegorz Rasiak - Southampton 8 from 15.
