  1. Collins is a fantastic c/h but his age and pace are catching up with him .
    We need to look ahead and bring in a new face !
    Umtiti looks a classy c/h , he would fit in quite well alongside ogbonna ! Imo

  2. We certainly look more balanced and defend better ads unit with Collins alongside Oggy the stats are we are nearly 3 times better in terms of average goals conceded.

  3. Collins is the only player we have in the Dicksy mould. Not the classiest ball-player – he does love that long ball out of defence – but he does the ‘lay down and die’ last line of defence sooooo well. Others may be faster, better ball players and younger, but Ginge is one I’d trust above all others. Love to see him coach some of that grit and relentlessness into our new batch of players.
