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.

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!
