    Just for the hell of it.........Here's what I think. Please reply so I can get a good idea of what the status quo of opinion is....

    GK Heurelho Gomes - 8 IMO Gomes is solid (now) and I think we will struggle to get a better keeper with what is out there.
    DF Alan Hutton - 7 Good going forward but not as reliable and relaxed on the ball as Charlie
    DF Gareth Bale - 6 Could do better!
    MF David Bentley - 5 Cocky git who thinks he's the next Becks - Please sell
    MF Tom Huddlestone - 8 The next Hoddle, some say...Still got alot to learn and will get better with age.
    MF Aaron Lennon - 9 Fast, tricky, much improved service this year. Please keep this boy, he's gonna be a world beater!
    MF Jermaine Jenas - 6 Always looks like he's just had some dope before he plays. Thick as Pigsh*t.
    FW Roman Pavlyuchenko - 7 Goodbye Whinger.
    FW Robbie Keane - 6.5 Just not doing it for me since the Pool ruined him.
    MF Wilson Palacios - 9 Powerhouse
    GK Jimmy Walker - No opinion except "Kid-a-Dy-no-mite"
    MF Luka Modrić - 9 Masterful and clever with a good work ethic. Everything that Jenas isn't!
    FW Peter Crouch - 8 Really Really Tall but has good feet.
    LB Kyle Naughton - 8 Just for his promise alone. Wish we could see more of him
    MF Giovani dos Santos - 6 Really Really small. Had good American Cup but unproven IMO.
    FW Jermain Defoe - 9 Shoot on sight...Shoot on sight. Shot like a guided missile. Good finisher.
    DF Sébastien Bassong - 8 Powerful and composed. Just what we needed for this season.
    DF Michael Dawson - 8 Dependable, Great header of the ball.
    MF Niko Kranjčar - 9 Oh oh oh it's magic, you know. Lost a bit of form in the last 2 games but could be a Spurs legend.
    DF Vedran Ćorluka - 7 Good RB. Nothing special.
    Carlo Cudicini - 7 Good Backup if not riding a Bike!
    MF Jamie O'Hara - 7 Give him a chance, he has probably learnt a lot at Pompey.
    MF Danny Rose - 7 He fast!
    DF Ledley King (club captain) - 8 Legend with Paper legs
    GK Ben Alnwick - 7 Good Backup. Bought Cudicini a Motorbike last year!
    DF Dorian Dervite - 5 How long has this dude been waiting in the wings...probably about 36 yrs old by now.
    DF Benoît Assou-Ekotto - 9 Quietly going about his business. One of the best LB in Prem IMO
    DF Jonathan Woodgate - 7 Scores good goals with his face but always on the treatment table too much really help the cause.

    • I think Gomes is more an embarassing drama queen than a cheat, like the time when he was motionless on the deck waiting for the Last Rites after he had been flicked in the face!

    • actually Sfer is right - I'm finally sick of Jenas, sell him!
      Hudd isn't there yet but he's improving slowly...

      • Yes. I am very bored at work. Just been to Holland to set up a subsidary company and was busy as hell. Bit of a culture shock coming back to Blighty with next to nothing to do.

        Players I think we should sell.....

        Pav, Bentley, Jenas.

        Players we need to buy......

        Central Midfielder, Striker, Centre Back and Left Winger.

        Give Gomes a chance...he's not put a foot wrong for months now IMO.

    • I'd say spot on Jay
      get rid of Bentley that's for sure - completely overhyped, see if West Ham want him
      not totally sold yet on Bassong, would like another CB with injuries etc - wish Woodgate came back
      when you look at the squad like that, it ain't so bad! when were we stronger?

    • Christ Jay are you bored?

      Only three I disagree with. Huddlestone is a lazy, moody sulker and wouldn't get more than a 5 from me. Kranjcar has not played enough to get a 9 so 7 is more than enough at the mo.

      BAE is still prone to some really weird games and until he is consistent he would only get a 7 but I am hopeful about him.

      Oh and Jenas wouldn't get past a 4 for me!!

      Oh and I can't, and never will, forgive Gomes for his really embarrassing play acting. It sticks in my mind more than my first wife. For that reason he will never even get a ranking at all from me no matter how well he plays. If I had one wish on my deathbed it would be to be able to sit down with him, a TV and the 4 or 5 replays of him falling over grimacing in pain when everybody could see that he wasn't even touched - not even close. Then asking him how he feels before punching the w4nkers lights out!
