I thought his abdominal injury restricted his place kicking?
Some odd views on this thread IMHO.Why would JB not be first choice if fit and at Leeds, why does a press article mean he is off, why would another club be targetting a player with a current injury, etc etc?
Think you're right about the injury ce. Re: not being first choice, given the choice of a fit JB and Joe Ford, I wouldn't be spending too long scratching my head. However, maybe this makes me a conspiracy theorist, but (maybe thanks to his father) I just have a sneaky suspicion that "the powers that be" have earmarked Joe Ford for greater things and would want to see him getting plenty of game time at 10.
