|Infestation in Manchester today|
at 18:20 18 May 2013
A spread of scum pottering around the city today. I was surprised how many pensioners make up their away support - I thought we had a fairly high % of diehards in their autumnal years.
I did see one young bloke in a green striped monstrosity of a kit. He looked at least my age had the Premiership badges sewn onto a Xara away shirt with "Prem 4 Ever" on the back. Him and his mate were haggling for NCFC tattoos outside a grotty shop. Such a small club mentality, I almost wish I was making it up.
|I hope Skuse is like Nouble and not like JET|

When we signed Nouble I was a bit surprised. Both he and Skuse have looked mediocre to rubbish when I've seen them play against us - but getting Nouble here you can see what Mick saw in him and where he fits in by and large.
JET however was promising and exciting. While I love watching him play all that talent hasn't blossomed or transferred into results. It's quite interesting to compare the fortunes of various players when it comes to numerous factors, most of which are out of their control oddly enough.
While I can't lie and pretend Skuse excites me, I've got nothing against another Norris type water carrier who can play in various positions. It'll be interesting to see who Mick slots where and what effect that has. Fee, position, style and expectation all conspire to make or break players when they move.
From a selfish point of view though I do hope he adds in someone with a bit of flair and unpredictability - or JET is called in tomorrow and offered a new start here. He is awesome.

I did smile
|One thing I do like is Clichy's attacking play|

Would love to see similar from Cresswell next season. Love it when players get to a byline again and again and threaten, something we've rarely done for the past few years.
