Just wanted to make a quick comment on Jags.
I've noticed a lot of positive letters in recent days about our displays against Larissa and Derby — with most people attributing the change in fortunes to the return of Timmy C to the midfield.
I totally agree that his running, positional sense and eye for goal give us another dimension, but one thing I haven't seen mentioned is Phil Jagielka's contribution from right back.
Is it just me, or was Jags an absolute revelation overlapping and crossing down the right against Derby? He has copped a lot of stick since he signed, as people have considered his midfield performances less than acceptable, but I think with him down the right supporting Mikky and Baines down the left supporting Pienaar/Ossie we have very strong flanks for the first time in ages.
Combine this with Timmy C in the middle next to an anchorman (Cars, or even Neville) and add in a couple of good strikers (take your pick from 5) and we suddenly look dangerous.
Let's hope the strain of 4 games in just over a week doesn't prevent the boys from blowing Birmingham away this weekend!

I would hardly call Moyes clueless, the guy has transformed the club since he came over five years ago. I need to look at yourself I think.

Unfortunately, the step up to the big league is a different story and while he has remained consistent there has been to many off days from him. I was there in person on wednesday night and at times it looked like he was in a different game.
Also Phil Neville has stated as saying that he has contemplated on numerous occasions quitting the national side. If only he had the same sentiments at domestic level.
