Last season I commented on here that rm had improved everyone of our defensive players. I think the issue this year has been we haven't had that defensive solidarity to build on. Say what you like about nasty but vk and lescott were awesome last year and we undoubtedly miss Micah as well as zab is playing. Plus Barry and de Jong offered so much more than Barry and Garcia. The best work rm, who I love btw way, did in making us a top team seems undone. We seem to have lost our heart and aggression. Without either we will win sod all.
