Lyons a far smarter player too, but doesn't too many years left in him. Still, an ageing disciplined smart role model is worth more than an erratic poor defensive ill disciplined alco.
He means alot to manly, any other team he wouldnt lift them half as much, and although Lyon was better then jennings, his time is almost up and wouldnt be worth signing him...
