Cotterill has no reason to pick out of form midfielder
With the return of Maikel Kieftenbeld and, potentially, David Davis, there is absolutely no reason for Steve Cotterill to pick Cheikh Ndoye tomorrow.
The Senegal international has flattered to deceive since signing from Angers in the summer.
He is slow, can't pass, can't tackle and commits cheap fouls. Frankly, he offers absolutely nothing.
With Kieftenbeld and Davis unavailable, you could suggest that Cotterill had no choice but to pick the big donkey.
But he could have opted to change the formation. Instead, he stuck with three central midfielders and, as a result, Ndoye was picked.
And despite his options being bolstered, Cotterill will pick him tomorrow leaving the rest of us gob smacked as to how Ndoye has managed to worm his way on to a £30k a week contract.
What was Harry Redknapp thinking??
