I've read a lot on here and twitter, and heard a lot at games directed michaels way. What short memories we have. Before we signed Nelson the back line consisted of Forster and hanlon. Mcpake was already injured during the malmo game.
When Nelson came in he was a leader during his first few performances and every fan to a man was saying finally we had signed a real leader! He even came up with a few goals.
When he broke his cheek bone, it was 'we're missing Nelson'. He even came back and played with a mask such was his dedication.
He doesn't claim to be a youngster and speedy Gonzales. But for fans to blame him so much for the demise of the club is ridiculous. He hasn't had a constant defensive partner for months and no one is denying he is getting on a bit. But the man has given his all. He is not the reason we're down. Him and Hanlon made a good partnership and I'm looking forward to them pairing up next season, cos they will be the best partnership in the championship.
