    The Virtue of Patience.

    Patience is a word not normally synonymous with football in todays modern game. The entire English game haemorrages managers at an alarming rate and I'm sure the next transfer merry-go round we will be littered with cast off blue and white scarves, chewing gum and Madonna-esque headsets as...

    Should we stop spending...

    After securing Naughton should we save the rest of our transfer kitty and go back in for Defour in the January window? The noises from the player seem to be he wants the move but being in the Champions League group stages with them is important for him and shows good loyalty. My thinking...
