From Despair To Where? Give him a little bit of a break, it's the middle of an international break. There is literally fcuk all to report but he still has to fill copy.
And anyway, I would have thought an interview with the club captain that covers what has been quite a turbulent 3 months, even if it is through another source, is still newsworthy, and as has already been discussed on here, Moore i likely to be more open with a non affiliated journalist.
He should be out there interviewing the likes of Moore - he's not exactly away on international duty.
I say again - why has he got no contacts at the club? THAT'S HIS JOB
It would also be nice now and then if we had a proper report on the game for fans who cannot get up to matches every week instead of cr@p like "5 things you may have missed"
