DAVID WILL ALWAYS PUMMEL THE PHILISTINES:

Delap focus means extra training for Baggies (Soccernet, April 2, 2009)

West Bromwich Albion defender Shelton Martis has revealed that the Baggies squad have been putting in extra training to try to cope with the aerial threat posed byRory Delap's ahead of Saturday's relegation battle against Stoke City.

Matis, who has forced his way into the West Brom side in recent games, knows that if the Premier League's bottom side are to have a chance of escaping relegation the must get a result against Stoke at the Hawthorns and nullifying Delap could be crucial in achieving that.

Delap's throws have been a potent weapon for Stoke in their first season in the Premier League, and Matis revealed: ''We are doing a lot of training on trying to combat what Rory Delap can do with his throws, and I mean a lot. It has been a big weapon for Stoke.


They've had 7 months now and they're still stumped by a man who can throw.
