Aah - see t'other thread - (and I make it 6 wins in the Marsden to your 5 - hence we are the best!!) I wouldn't want balsawood boy if he was the only fit striker (a term one can't really use to describe his unique ability of touching the ball ocaisionally, mostly passing sideways and getting brushed of the ball) in the country. I believe Smith is held in equally high esteem by denizens of the Town End, not having seen him play I can't comment. Lynch isn't actually shit as such. He's just the biggest non-entity I've ever seen on a football pitch. I don't remember him doing anything remotely threatening in the three months he was with us. Apparantly much the same at Deepdale according to my PNE contacts.
