Granted... Its a tough choice between Law and Jay, but Jay's on better form at the moment. I'd have him in ahead. I still think Law has more in his locker overall though, so will force his way back in. Of course, Jay should be on an upward trajectory and Law the opposite, in theory. So hopefully its a smooth transition over a long time. One thing I would add in Law's favour is although they are both pretty handy around the box (Jay more so, presently), Law contributes more to establishing midfield dominance, winning second balls, etc.This is what some people don't get. Some get all hot and bothered if a poster suggests a player should be "rested", but they are doing a disservice to the player waiting in the wings who also deserves a chance.
Nobody should be nailed on if he is not in form or if another player is ready to replace him
Law is a very good player, but if MJ replaces him and does well he shouldn"t be dropped until he himself loses form.
