December – March: Career choices by Emile Heskey

The winter months are flying by, and whilst the Spice Girls are topping the charts, West Ham decide to spice up their life by sacking Harry Redknapp just after Christmas.

The league cup semi finals reach their conclusion, which is topical, but it does throw up a tasty final between Man Utd and Liverpool.

For some reason, Emile Heskey decides the way forward in his career is to swap 12th placed Premier League Leicester for 16th in Divison 1 Norwich. It’s a very odd move from a player who has huge potential ability on this game, but that’s all part of the fun. Note to self: Activate Heskey’s non-promotion release clause in 3 months

Elsewhere the FA Cup gets under way but the main shocks are Stockport taking out Dalglish’s Newcastle and Coventry putting 5 past high flying Leeds. Brian Little has turned it right round for Aston Villa, they’re up to 8th which I think says more about John Gregory than it does about Brian Little.

The Dons are still muddling along in mid table, but are through to the FA Cup Quarter Final. In an attempt to add more goals, Nick Barmby has been snapped up for £800k but he is awful. I don’t know what I expected but as you can see from his average rating, he will never add to those 10 England caps.

  1. believe me… Barmby is not that bad =)
    but I assume every time I buy him he does some games and I end up selling him for 1,5 the value I had bought him before (I usually start with small teams so every pound I make is importante to make money to end up getting a good player that is probably unhappy at is his big club =)
