Re: 2012-2013 English Premier League Thread (La Liga, Serie A, etc.)
Lamps should not be re-signed if he is going to be a squad player. He's still got game. But there's no point in him being there for no good reason.
And one thing is simple (and here's a warning for Ashley Cole): the older you get, the more people try to protect you and rest you..and that's overest. If you're Ashley Cole and you play every game of every season, then incoming managers better keep it up. The thing that often really sucks about aging in sports is that your routine has to be maintained...if you've never been injured and suddenly have one at 34, it's often a different kind of hell to get back. And when you start getting old man treatment, preemptively, you start to get older. Let him play.
