Teenage defender Richards only arrived on loan from Fulham 24 hours earlier but was thrown straight in against the promotion chasers and did not disappoint in the goalless draw.

"We switched to four at the back and Tom probably thought that he would be galloping down the left side playing wing-back," said Ardley.

"But 20 minutes in he was covering for the centre-backs in a back four and he did really well.

"He learned on Thursday that AFC Wimbledon wanted him and then he's in training with us for the first time on Friday. On Friday night he had to sing his initiation song for the lads in the hotel.

"He has a wonderful left foot and loves galloping down the left wing. I thought he was steady and he'll get better as time goes on."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

Warnock sacked by Palace

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
