Winston's bulldog spirit
Whatever happens tomorrow it's been a good year for Winston Reid. Nice to see him score his third goal of the campaign at Leicester and tomorrow will be his 25th appearance of the season. He's made a difference since he returned to the side after suffering concussion with New Zealand. Last season he looked a terrible buy at £2.5 million, was never trusted by Grant and scored a calamitous own goal at WBA. Yet he's proved quietly consistent since August and has proved he's a good player at Championship level. At 23 he offers us some hope for the future. And he's even got his own (not very PC) song after the Millwall game.
