The one player who I have no doubt will join that list as ‘long-term signed’ is Demba Ba, he has two years to run and I have no doubt the club are working to tie him down and also eradicate any possible ‘cheap’ get out clause.
Who has progressed through the ranks and is not a signing who we have paid money for and therefore just ‘has’ to be played? Tim Krul and Steven Taylor another but really over the last 6 or 7 years that is seriously rubbish.
Santon may come in which shuffles Jonas up the left and Cabaye back into the middle. Probably fatal but I’ve got a good feeling and I think the players will have taken confidence from the Norwich result.
