Ferdinand To Return From His Sunderland Hell?
Blunderland are after Dunne and Unreal City seem to have their sights set on Upson, so does anybody fancy closing the triangle and bringing Anton back into the fold? People forget that the Great Escape was based on the Ferdinand and Collins centre back pairing. In fact, had we maintained the same winning ratio with Ferdinand out of the team as we did with him in it, then we would have completed that nightmare season with 50 points, without drawing any games. Great Escape? We would have been pushing for Europe!
Now I know Anton suffers from ganga breaks in concentration, but so did his big brother until he mysteriously forgot to take that drugs test. Since then, Rio has emerged as the real deal, the best England centre back since...well probably Tony Adams. He never has quite made it as the new Bobby Moore. Anton has all the necessary requirements to be as good as Rio - tall, pacey, strong in the tackle and an excellent passer of the ball. He just needs his head sorting, and I think Clarke and Zola could play the bad cop / good cop routine to get him focused.
Anton must be regretting his move to Blunderland and he isn't Steve Bruce's cup of tea as a centre half. I reckon a bid of £4m plus Davenport would probably secure his return to the fold - and I am convinced that he will be in the England team in 3 to 4 years time once he has matured. The deal makes sense to me! Anybody agree?
