AVB has done well in terms of results and league position. A few people have criticised the performance of the team, with some reason, we haven't been as fluid as last season, but we have lost integral players who allowed us to play that way. IMO we are doing exceptionally well 'considering'!
Now.... any chance you can have a word a pull a few NE strings, Surely Huddlestone, Jenas, Bentley and Gomes would improve Newcastle or Sunderland? Ok maybe Middlesborough are more their level! see what you can do!
The 4 guys you mentioned there will have to come to Hartlepool, Joe, double quick. Tell them they'll be on 950 quid a week and we'll throw a few Tesco vouchers in as win bonuses. H---Beckham wants 2 grand, so he can piss right off.
