When you saw the bench today you knew we were in trouble and lets look at who is out.
Hutton – 2/3 weeks out but not worries about him
Dunne – Out all season
Cuellar – Groin injury no details on how long
Clark – Back in training so should be back soon
Petrov – No more to be said, very sad
Bent – Out all season
Delph – Out all season
Jenas – Out all season
N’zogbia – Knee injury and out for another 3 weeks or so
So basically we have been stripped of all our experienced players and left with a few and of course the home grown players.
I really rate some of them but not at all the same time and not when the pressure of the situation is just made a thousand times worse by the horrific news about Petrov.
It is now why I am worried, no one needs to remind me about a year ago. A year ago we had Bent to save us and Blues had this situation. To get out of this simply the experienced pros left HAVE to get us out.
Therefore Gabby, Collins, Ireland, Warnock it is all up to you guys. Gabby you have to get back your goalscoring form, we NEED you to. Collins and Warnock YOU HAVE to marshall the defence and keep goals out. Ireland you HAVE to dominate midfield and create chances for Gabby.
If you fail to do this then we could be relegated, it is that serious now.
