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.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
