The point I'm trying to score , I mean make
, is we have Noble, Collison, Nolan all really fighting for a central midfield berth , and of those three the best passer is Noble - hence why he gets my vote .Jack , at the tip of a diamond would also be decent .
Nolan does have a good scoring record - but as an extra striker , not a midfielder if you get my drift , .[/quote]
Not sure Pinks, Nolan is a Central Midfielder, whatever you may think of it & plays in that position..
He just so happens to find excellent positions when he ventures forwards & has a knack for turning up ta the right place at the right time..
I'd love Collison to be our saviour at the top of a diamond, but i am starting to think we're kidding ourselves if we think he is going to be..
Nolan was the highest scoring English Midfielder last Season Pinks scoring more Goals than Drogba & Rooney & is our joint top Goalscorer this Season so far, he doesn't do that but not playing...
You take Nolan out of our Team & you don't just lose our best Captain since Lucas Neill, you lose Goals, lots of Goals..
