However thanks to Stuart Pearce’s bizarre decision to barely play Tonks in the GB team that partook in the Olympics; he lacked the match fitness and sharpness to start the season…in his place is a man who turned down the opportunity of representing his country in those same games…Winston Reid.
Now whilst I’d never have a pop at Tonks for representing team GB ; Reid put club before country and is now reaping the rewards; as he and James Collins have now formed a defensive partnership that has seen us keep three clean sheets in our opening 4 games.
There was a common consensus both by journalists and some fans that Reid just wouldn’t be able to cut it in the big league, and whilst we’re only a few games in I must say he’s already in the process of confounding those who dismissed him as nothing more than Championship player.

A strong and imposing figure both on the deck and in the air, who also pops up with the odd goal. Seem to remember one against Millwall last season) I honestly believe a campaign in the Championship battled hardened him, the endless crosses, avalanche of long balls, the uncompromising, old fashioned and bruising centre forwards he faced on a regular basis have made a man out of him; and we’re now reaping the rewards.
At the start of the season the question was very much who partners Tomkins? Well now its most definitely who slots in alongside Reid?
