Made me want to cry reading that piece, so much enthusiasm and love for the game, and what a perfectionist. I wish some of our present squad had just a bit of his professionalism.

Tim's got to be a better bet than Duncan. I know they have different strengths. But Tim has the Australian winning mentality. He wouldn't settle for any slackers in the team.

I've not read the full article but I truly hope Tim does get into coaching and is successful with us.

He was a top player, top bloke, very canny, controlled aggression and mentality strong.

The impression I get with Boa Morta and Duncan Ferguson is they try to stay calm by keeping sat and then explode and are overly aggressive and too easy to wind up.

How does that help the players, where's the communication from the sidelines to gee them up positively?

That may be true against most teams but, against Everton, it doesn't work as they are spoilt as to which one standing on the 6-yard box line they should choose.

They just choose the space that nobody is marking Alan!
