VIEW FROM THE STANDS

Australian Four Four Two - - PREMIER LEAGUE -

ANDY GURR, MATCH- GO­ING SUP­PORTER SINCE 1998 This sea­son will be dif­fer­ent to last be­cause

most fans will have a higher ex­pec­ta­tion of where we will fin­ish, after last sea­son’s 10th.

Fans of other clubs might not know that

we aren’t all de­luded Ge­ordies who think we should be win­ning the Cham­pi­ons League.

The player I would hap­pily drive to an­other club is

Joselu. There’s been no lack of ef­fort from him, but he’s just not good enough for the Pre­mier League.

Our most un­der­rated player is

Paul Dum­mett. I didn’t rate him for a long time, but he has been so solid and con­sis­tent over the past cou­ple of sea­sons. He’s had a lot of good wingers in his pocket.

The op­po­si­tion player I se­cretly ad­mire is

the classy David Silva.

Our pan­tomime vil­lain is

An­thony Knockaert: over­rated, loves a dive.

One change I would make at our club is

the owner. Just sell up!

Keep an eye out for

striker Adam Arm­strong. It could be his sea­son to break through at last. He did very well on loan at Black­burn last sea­son and he was also part of the Eng­land un­der-21 squad that won this sum­mer’s Toulon Tour­na­ment.

This sea­son we will fin­ish 13th. FFT asks: Were you pleased to see Martin Dubravka make his Jan­uary loan deal per­ma­nent this sum­mer?

Ab­so­lutely. He had a fan­tas­tic half-sea­son with us.
