Paul Caddis: Praised by his manager

The 24-year-old captained Swindon to the League Two title last season, but joined the Blues on loan following a public row with Paolo Di Canio.

Caddis dislocated his shoulder in only his third match for Clark's men, but has now started the last two games for the Championship club as they plot a route up the table.

Clark said: "Paul's vital to what I'm trying to achieve because he's got the DNA of the type of footballers I like to work with.

"He's got fantastic enthusiasm and he's very low maintenance around the football club.

"He's got great desire, he's technically very good and he's consistent.

"Paul is young and hungry and he's loving this opportunity to be at such a massive club in the Championship. He doesn't want to give it up without a fight and he actually wants to progress even further and go on to the next level.

"That's the type of DNA I want from players that represent the football club."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
