I don't think we are as a SQUAD as a team (starting eleven) Yes, but as a squad no. And unfortunately the is no magic water that will get the squad 100% fit for every game all season.

I still want MON in but MON you need to get a much better squad and rotate, even though it is frowned against by the FA.(Naughty Mick)

I don't think so. I think we need to further improve the squad depth in the summer. It hurts me to say it, but look at Spurs. They can deal with injuries, rotate and loan Robbie Keane to Celtic and still maintain their form, because their squad is strong.

I don't need to vote for this as I just have to look at the league table, it doesn't lie. We have a competitive squad but it needs extra quality. Hopefully this summer will bring that quality in. We are still very much a work in progress.

We have a decent first XI, but that's about it. We have looked totally flat when Gabby has been out, we are unable to cope with injury, suspension or loss of form. We certainly cant bring players on who can change a game after an hour, and now other clubs are beginning to target our apparent inability to play for 90 minutes it becomes a bigger problem still.

Beating last season's points tally of 62 is really all we have left to play for in the league now.

I saw John Terry pick up on that yesterday in an interview on MOTD. Said they had watched a few of our recent games and noticed we tire after 55-60 minutes and that they knew the goals would come.

Starting 11, on our day, when fully fit....yes

The squad as a whole just ain't up to it though. Fair amount of dead wood needs clearing out and O'Neill needs to realise now that he MUST buy some big name, big money players and start rotating more. We will not progress much further otherwise
