Hines Looks Tasty
After the honest assessment of the overall team performance, a glimmer of optimism! Hines looks as if he may have what it takes to succeed in the Prem despite, like Sears, being pint sized. I like the lad's confidence and his pace and control will unsettle the cart horse centre backs who still find sanctuary in the British game. He will come up against worse defenders than Carragher and Skrtl and, with a little more luck, will score goals and win free kicks and penalties.
It might be better, for now, to use him as an impact sub against tiring defenders - as Babel was used against us - but he has shown enough against Blackburn and Liverpool to suggest to me that he may be a better prospect than Sears. But he is missing a golden sponsorship opportunity - he should be wearing the number 57 on his back!
