Actually thought Hoolahan had a pretty good game yesterday. He''s never had much stamina, though, and at the nearly veteran stage is generally worth subbing on the hour. So on that I thought Adams got it right. Whereas Grabban has for me now had 4 pretty poor games in a row and would me my candidate for dropping. Works hard and is fast, but his touch recently has often been poor and his finishing woeful. Howson played very well, my man of the match, was always available for a pass and brought the ball out of defence much faster than Johnson and Tettey generally do. Unless and until Hooper is match fit I''d be looking to play Jerome on his own up front, with Wes in the hole, and Howson and Tettey as the defensive midfielders. Redmond has to start based on his performances. Constantly beats his man, though his final ball isn''t there yet. Murphy is a very handy winger to have coming off the bench, but don''t see him having the stamina or defensive capabilities to start. So the rest of the midfield would be Redmond with, in the absence of any alternative, Lafferty on the left. Lafferty is not ideal for that position, but I don''t who else you put in or take out to strengthen the side right now. Maybe all will become clear when Vadis is up and running.
