What a sensational start Doctor Evil has made as manager. Picking up the chaos left behind by Zola and Grant, he has transformed the club from top to bottom in a matter of months, and built a squad of players equipped to storm through the Championship and challenge for the Champions League as soon as we have claimed our rightful place back in the Prem.
Just look at the squad!
Robert Green - a top international keeper so unlucky to have been born into a generation of top English keepers. Carson, Robinson, James, Hart, names all to stand alongside the greats of the past. How Green must wish it was only Shilton, Clemence and Parkes he had by way of competition as he would surely be heading towards 100 caps by now!
Joey O'Brien - Capped 3 times by the Republic of Ireland.
George McCartney - A £6 million man when sold to Sunderland. 34 caps for Northern Ireland.
Winston Reid - Capped 6 times by new Zealand! A former star of Danish football.
James Tomkins - F.E.C.
Mark Noble - Capped no fewer than 18 times by England at U21 level and a veteran of nearly 200 league appearances already.
Julien Faubert - French international. Just check out that YouTube video of how good he was before he joined us! This is the man who was wanted by Real Madrid!
Matty Taylor - Top Premeirship player who has spent his entire top division career so far at mighty Portsmouth and Bolton. Uncapped but God knows why!
Henri Lansbury - An Arsenal star of the future. Outstanding for Norwich last season, although they didn't try to sign him for this season in the Prem.
Carlton Cole - England international and goal machine.
Kevin Nolan - Robbed of Player of the Year last season when Parker was given the nod instead.
Jack Collison - Top international player with Wales.
Abduolaye Faye - No fewer than 12 caps for Senegal.
David Bentley - Sullivan and Gold said they wanted Beckham but they signed the next Beckham instead. Enough said!
Papa Diop - 32 international caps for Senegal!
Freddie Piqiounne - Like Faubert, capped by France!
Herita Ilunga - 9 caps for the Congo!
Guy Demel - 27 caps for the Ivory Coast!
Sam Baldock - the new Michael Owen with 35 goals in 105 league games in the bottom two divisions.
John Carew - 73 caps and 23 goals for Norway!
And there's others in reserve too!
The squad is now bristling with international quality players. Allardyce has cut out the dead wood and shipped out the journeymen, replacing them with a kaleidoscope of top international stars from around the globe.
True the team have not yet truly gelled but my God, when they do, Man City and Man Utd had better beware!
