Alan Lee: Still capable of doing a job for Town

Grayson was impressed with Lee following his first start of the season in the 4-2 defeat against Yorkshire rivals Leeds on Saturday.

"We asked Alan to do a specific job against Leeds and I thought he was effective, especially in the air," he told the Huddersfield Examiner. "It's a shame that we couldn't better utilise some of the balls he won.

"Alan's not only an experienced player, he also has bags of enthusiasm, and that rubs off on those around him.

"He's great at helping out the younger lads in the squad, both on and off the pitch, and while he might not start every game, he has a big role to play."

The 34-year-old forward could retain his place in the Terriers' first XI for this Saturday's clash with Bolton, who are managed by Lee's former Crystal Palace team-mate Dougie Freedman.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
