Spillane, no pace? Really? You actually ever seen him? To me, he looks pretty quick, very tough in the challenge, "two" good feet (which is a rare commodity these days), he''s strong in the air and whats more he seems to have a little more desire to make an impact when he gets forward! I haven''t seen Russell Martin have too many great games either, he seems lethargic to me and certainly clueless going forward. I just think that because Otsemobor was so dire that we''d think bollard positioned in the right back slot would be a God send! Spillane is a better player, i''m sure of that. Haven''t seem enough of him but when i have he''s impressed me with the above mentioned attributes! I think had he not pulled up with a hamstring injury he''d still be in the team to be honest as lambert seemed keen.Also, having an opinion that a bench player is a better option than a current first-teamer doesn''t mean he''s being scapegoated as far as I''m concerned. I''d never boo him, or slate him at the game, however, i would prefer Spillane to be playing!
