Guru, I watched the same match and he made a massive impact when he came on. Very Henry like in his play and the goals were very good. Anyone still going on about Rooney should remember that half of the Under 21 team are older than him.
Yeah he had a good game when he came on, though personally I'd still rather have Darren Bent. He's got a track record being the top scoring Englishman in the Premiership last season and he cost a sensible amount of money!!
I dont think SWP is a flop - he was a good player in an averadge side at Man City - came to Chelsea with big expectations but he has to take his game to a new level. Jose did it with Joe Cole, and he will do it with SWP. Credit to SWP for not sulking and jumping ship during the transfer window, but staying to improve his game and skill.
Theo does look good I saw him at Reading in an England B game and he was rapid!! I just hope he comes on and does manage to break into a team with Sir Henry and a very promising Van the man but that with that talent on the training pitch can only help.
Drain Sniffer I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one mate, Jose's brought on Joe Cole, personally I think he brought on Duff with his injury's and we could probably sit here listing many others. SWP has flopped how many appearences has he come on and failed to make an impact, lacked the final ball and gets sloppy trying to do too much with his passing. In short yes credit to him staying but personally I think he should go.
Wedgy - I was at Reading and had the privelige also of seeing him against Mansfield in the CC Cup when he was at Southampton, and at Reading was in the position of seeing the lad play more times than Sven. We could have done with his pace last night.
