Laughing a lot

A question from another interview in August 2008 that goes to show just how easy it is for pre-season matches to mislead:

Florian Sturm
Pre-season Promise

Are you impressed with the signing of Florian Sturm and why? Does he bring anything new to the club we didn’t have before?

I’m pleased we’ve signed him.  I’ve seen him play twice and he looked to be a strong, creative winger who is also good on the ball, and has a shot on him.  Is he anything new?  Well we’ve had similar players before, but I don’t think we’ve got one right now.  He’s a pretty good Dyer replacement, based on what we’ve seen so far.

I’m sure he’s one for the future 🙂
