    This is the thread for all players in the league who you think are over-performing, or have slipped under the media radar, or have just really impressed you this season.
    They can be from any league and team, from Sporting Lisbon to Tranmere Rovers.
    Would they be a good fit at Spurs? Are they just what that South London lot needed?

    The great thing about this thread is we can see all the oft lambasted 'football manager types' out there big up the next wonderkid, and have some frame of reference when we get linked next January. (I'm looking at you Mumorn - correctly highlight Lamela a few months ago!)

    SO, Glory-Glory Guys and Girls

    Who's caught your eye?

    Maybe a bit random for some, but I've liked what I've seen of Ashley Westwood at Villa.

    Dean Moxey at Palace, mainly because I remember his marauding teenage wingback years ago when he was a kid at City, great to see him in the PL

    Ben Davies at Swansea.

    A youngster who defends first,then attacks with intelligence.(Cracking goal Sunday against WBA).

    This! What a player he looks to be.

    My mates a Blues fan and he had nothing but great things to say about him. He had no idea how Townsend was getting in the team infront of him a few seasons back.

    Nastastic, potentially the best centre back in the world, somehow the media think Lescott's better than him. He's not.

    Callum Mcmanaman at Wigan is a quality player, and should definitely be at a prem side! He tore city up in the FA cup final

    The 2 Spanish lads that Swansea signed (Canas and Pozuelo) have looked good so far. I like the look of the Palace right back Ward too.

    Big year, and i predict a big move (next year) for N'Zonzi if he can keep himself together off the pitch.

    We already have Capoue who reminds me an awful lot of N'Zonzi.

    You know how you get that sub-conscious image of 'i can see him in a .... shirt'......well i can just see N'Zonzi in a gooner shirt

    (by contrast just don't get that feeling with Ozil) - Yeah i know it counts for nothing.:)

    To Madeira from Gouveia looks like a right prospect.

    Impressed with Ward RB from Palace, Redmond at Norwich and the two CM lads at Villa Westwood and Delph. Weimann as well from Villa looks quality although I think many noticed him last season
