Despite the ever-present exception of a left winger, the squad appears to be filling out nicely.
But where is our captain? I'm not debating Ledley's abilities or loyalties. He is one of the best this country has to offer. But putting my fantasy football squad together, it pains me that he has to be left out yet again.
He can't earn me any points sat six rows behind BMJ on a Saturday afternoon.
Real life has greater subtleties to it. His influence to younger players and to the squad as a whole I would imagine is tangible.
But where is the voice on the park? Where is the impassioned general to sustain momentum when a daft goal is conceded, when eyes roll and heads think of dropping? Ledley King is out again and it is my belief that that it is highly unlikely we'll get a full season out of him again. Not nice to write, but essentially true.
The Suggestions Box is now open.
