Even McFadden admitted he changed his mind at the last minute. Still it was a good solid performance and again with 2 up front we created a host of chances. Can’t wait for Chucho to score his 1st goal, then I feel he will take the premiership by storm. He is such an exciting player but sometimes a tad selfish. I hope you are wrong about Hart though, did you see him in the Man City Hospitality box.
My understanding of the deal that bought Joe Hart to StAndrews on the 12 month loan, was that he wanted to enhance his chances of going to South Africa with the England World Cup squad. His place has been taken at Man City by Shay Given, which will keep him out of Coppellos eye, so he asked for a loan deal on condition that he was the 1st team keeper, wherever he went, subject to any disasters, and that is in his contract. Now I agree, Maik is the more experienced, capable keeper, but I suppose Mcleish was swayed by the idea of a hungry young keeper, eager to impress.
I think the solidness of the defence is reason of the low goals scored against, not Harts ability..but I am still hoping that he will develop and be as capable as Maik, which he wont do in the stiffs. The one with his nose out of joint to me is Colin Doyle...I was impressed with him, but after the penalty incident aganst West Ham two years back, he hasnt had a look in...
I'd like to say, Mcleish knows what he is doing, but Im not so sure he does.
