Financially that would be good, but i think Elliott is a brilliant Division 1 player, he may lack the pace in the Premier, but i think Div 1 suits him. He and Taagart had a good partnership when we got promoted last time, and so far we have Heath, Dabizas, and Elliot...who would your 2 first choice centre backs be?
Personally, I would have Elliott over Dabizas. Dabizas has looked a liability most games I have seen him play. Elliott had one bad game against Wolves this season, and that was it for him. That was due to a lack of fitness, and he was rushed back way too early. In other games he has played, he has been solid. He only really let himself down against Brum, but he hasn't done much else wrong, and I think he was treated unfairly by Micky. (quote)
Dabizas is an interesting case. On paper a current international centre back playing for a half decent European country should have been a good acquisition. But he's crap. Gillespie -a similar instance of a player with a reputation/ pedigree & he's worse crap. Who actually watches how these guys are currently playing before inflicting them on the Walkers? I can't believe that anyone could have been impressed with Curtis, Hignett, Dabizas, Howey or Gillespie & what chance was there of Brooker hacking it at Prem level? Very strange stuff.
