Jarvis ultimately made the switch to West Ham United in a club-record deal and Pulis admits Stoke could not match the price they paid for him.

The Potters manager remains an admirer of Jarvis ahead of Monday's match against West Ham, but has no regrets over a missing out on a deal as he has been delighted with Kightly's efforts so far this season.

Kightly, like Jarvis, left Wolverhampton Wanderers during the transfer window following their relegation from the Premier League.

"Jarvis was one we were interested in but the deal West Ham paid for him was always going to be a little bit too rich for us," Pulis said in the Daily Star Sunday.

"He's a good honest lad and he's an old-fashioned winger who gets down the line and gets the crosses in. He will give you that service.

"But the deal was a little bit too much for us. Michael's been very good for us. He's a great lad and works his socks off."

W

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.

P

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.

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.
