Anthony, what I liked about Ireland was the fact he managed to do both jobs so well last night. He seemed to break up so many attacks but also laid on chances for the strikers. Doesn't seem to run out of steam either, was still charging about at the end.
Just seen Spurs gols on BBC 24 News, nice to see Bent's runs and Hudd finding them. As well as Hudd's great strike. Coys
I'm not deniying that hes a good player who would slot in the team, just feel that we have more chance for Diarra who is also the sort of player we could really do with. Also its all going to come down to money with a player like Ireland as hes not one of those loyal players who will join a team because of history etc, remember when he lied about his nan dying cos he didn't want to play for Ireland? wouldn't really want a player like that at spurs!

Diarra wants money and citeh want Diarra...so as far as us having more chance of getting him than Ireland, I'll have to disagree AR. The only thing we have going for us in the Diarra sweepstakes is Harry Redknapp, and I'm not sure that that's going to be enough. Who knows Ireland might end up being surplus if they get Diarra.
I caught a bit of their game last night, and some of their link up play was sublime, but made to look so by a ball chasing midfield, hopefully our boys know a bit better and keep their heads up to break up some of their off the ball movement.
