    Maybe they are not the best ones to compare with. They are generally looking for one or two key players at a time, often pretty huge signings. We've been trying to build a squad.

    But just look at the situation if we look at genuine first-teamers during their time with us. Your experiment shows we've had a high player turn-over which is what you'd expect from a low a base and when you don't reach CL. Some players have been good to us for a while but we've left behind. Others have been good but have reached the latter parts of the careers. Others have been good and cherry-picked by bigger clubs.

    1 - LIMBERSKY..............12 – LEE .......... 23 – CHIMBONDA.
    2 - HALLFREDSSON....... 13 – RASIAK........24 – MIDO.
    3 - HAMDAOUI.............. 14 – JENAS....... 25 – ROCHA.
    4 - CERNY................... 15 – DAVIDS. .....26 – ALNWICK.
    5 – DAWSON................ 16 – MURPHY......27 – BALE.
    6 – REID....................... 17 – GHALY........ 28 – BERNICHE.
    7 – STALTERI................ 18 – BERBATOV....29 – TAARABT.
    8 – LENNON.......... ........19 – EKOTTO........30 – BENT.
    9 – HUDDLESTONE.......... 20 – ZOKORA. .....31 – KABOUL.
    10 – TAINIO......................21 – DERVITTE..... 32 – ROSE.
    11 – ROUTLEDGE.....22 – MALBRANQUE. .......33 – BOATENG.

    Since Ramos came in as manager ;

    34 – GUNTER.
    35 – WOODGATE.
    36 – HUTTON.
    37 – GILBERTO.
    38 – MODRIC.

    I'm not sure why you've left out all the Arnesen signings that first window...?

    Anyway, apart from that, I'm not sure on the point you're making??

    Hi Stemark - That's an interesting team and am glad you picked that one out as it's a good memory jogger.

    Why were/will most of these be replaced or at least needed cover for?

    Robbo - loss of form - Pamarot - never agreed with selling him but Hutton is better - King - injured too often - Edman not good enough IMO - I thought Lee was better and Bale nearly did the replacement trick 100% but injured too often - may still do it and I'm getting more confident re Gilberto

    Carrick - who knows what happened behind the scenes but we do know we made a massive profit on him and he probably wasn't broken-hearted to go to Man U -

    Mendes - never agreed with him going but JJ is a better mid so not disastrous him leaving, wish him and Carrick could have stayed though, but it would be Carrick and JJ for me in the mid

    Brown - always liked him but zokora is a step up on him so not disastrous again and by now Brown is probably past his best - I wish we could have a slightly better version of him now though - his commitment & foot in attributes are what we need big-time

    Ziegler - not good enough - Steed and lennon are both better

    Keane - still here

    Defoe - not as good as Berbs - wouldn't sign a new contract

    Fulop - wish we still had him - but we need a better keeper as well to be our No.1

    Kanoute - controversial - but the main reasons for his leaving are well documented - I won't stoke up old flames here - but I backed Jol & the board in their decision and still do - maybe we were all wrong - maybe we weren't

    Davies - good player, should have started in the Cardiff final - lost his way a bit at Spurs thereafter - one of those things I reckon, needed a new club

    Gardner and Redknapp - too many injuries

    So overall I back the board's decisions on the vast majority of these players that we've lost - and only have regrets on one or two - which is normal
