Yeah, I think you're right. Are we still interested in Eustace though? We seem to be focussing all our efforts on Shacknell now, still think we need some cover at both full back position!
At the end of the day, Derby's decline coincided with two things; McLaren leaving, and Igor leaving, and I've never been sure which was more telling. He really never should have taken the England job.
I think you're right about his level, and it will be interesting to see how he manages at CCC level.
