If we had a fit King for the season I don't think we'd be in the position we are now. I know that one man doesn't makes a team but his finishing skills would I'm sure helped us pick up more points and the confidence that would come with it.... even Hendo may of picked up a couple of goals.
If we did have more points and say were mid table would we still of made 10mil on a sale of Ashley Young? Mid table above Villa Young not standing-out with his skills because King would be upstaging him with his goals (west ham) and others in the team playing with confidence. Young would not of looked like a £10mil player (not that i think he did but thank you Villa) he'd of not stood out as much as he did.
We will miss Ash but I'm sure in the long term the 10mil for him will help strengthen our team and help with our main objective which is premiership consolidation by 2010.
Just looking for positives from negatives.
I think I've listened to too many Aidy interviews
