From the papers…
A few bits and pieces from today’s paper:
1) Seeing that Giles Barnes has been playing in the Premier League has made me wonder if we should have hung on in there. However, this snippet from the Observer suggests that we’d still be hanging:
“Giles Barnes…remains an frustrating enigma, working his way into good positions only to cross the ball like Mr. Magoo.”
An odd comparison but I think I get the message.
2) Liam Dickinson is not exactly setting the world alight at Walsall. He’s on the bench already. Ironically, coming on as sub for Jon Macken.
3) I’m not a big fan of Kenny Miller and I’m the first to say “well his contract’s up in the summer isn’t it?” every time I see he’s scored. However, I noticed that he’s actually scored 18 goals in 14 league games this season. Good going by any standards.
4) The Rams are top of the Championship “shots on target” table, averaging 5.2 per game.
