After a difficult first season Anita is starting to look a class act and for me simply has to play. Cheick Tiote has physical presence over him but technical ability and tactical awareness are in short supply from the Ivorian.
As he was last summer, he has been let down terribly in this window. In fact, he has been let down in every single window with the exception of last January. For me it’s a case of weighing up 18 months of excellent management against one year of poor management.
