Credit where it’s due, when you have players like Cisse and Ben Arfa making all the headlines, it’s possibly very easy to forget that our five game winning run has been achieved by conceding precisely one goal.

It may also be easy to forget that this has been achieved with a back four made up of mainly bargain basement transfers.

For whatever reason, no matter how well the team does, some players will always be deemed as not good enough for the shirt , but credit needs to be given to Simpson, Williamson and Perch.

While our stars do the business at one end, they have done an equally fine job at the other. Now you may well believe that these players (along with Ryan Taylor and Guthrie) are not Champions League standard, and you may well be right, but seeing as the combined transfer fees of these five lads comes to less than the wages we have paid Alan Smith for his services, surely no one can argue that they haven’t  been excellent value for money.

If only for their  commitment to the cause alone,  Danny, Mike and James will do for me any day, instead of the likes of Babayaro, Marcelino and Boumsong.

I would love to think that Ashley is genuinely looking to invest in the club. He came across well during the interview and so credit for that at least. I reserve judgement until we see developments but, I think that his move to speak at last, was a positive move.

Believe or not fat boy has just been on sky sports and said even if we go down wont sell  and he also said he will not sell till we win something.

Perez has been the only plus in this horrible season and what does  our esteemed coach do, drops him for the most vital game of the season. HEAD CASE.

If you think playing Williamson and dropping Perez, abeid and Aaron's from the squad is bad, Just wait for the second half substitutions, goufran, Raylor and Sami ameobi.

If Hull win we are down.

Thanks for everything mike!!

No Abeid or Arons? Not even on the bench? Set up for a draw even though only a win guarantees survival? Has he been told that if we get relegated he'll remain in charge?
