Daryl Murphy is one man who has thundered on throughout a slight derailment.
Is he the most improved under Big Mick? I think so.
But Saturday’s 2-0 win at Blackpool belonged to our very own Super Ted.
Bishop has been compared to Kieron Dyer, but after having to sit out Wolves, let’s hope his injury record doesn’t hamper his career like Kieron’s.
