Top bloke, outstanding signing and captain for us.

Someone was asking about him on the Tyrone Mears thread the other day, so at least their questions are answered.

He did a very good job for us and I was sorry to see him go.

I thought it was a big mistake letting him go although he had missed two big chunks of the previous season with injury.

I spoke to Cotterill a couple of days before we signed him and he told me that if we got him he'd be the captain. When I asked why he just said that you only need to speak to Caldwell once to know he's a leader.

There was more talented individuals on the pitch in the first promotion to to the PL season but in Caldwell & Grezza you knew that you had two players both 100% committed and switched on for every second of every game, two captains on the pitch.
They are both forever in the folklore of this club.

If he'd had pace, he'd probably have played his whole career right at the top. Great football brain.

Yeah I agree, bit young though

Overtly leader on the pitch and worked with the other senior members as a unit who collectively decided to work for the promotion and achieved their goal.

A salute and big thanks from me.
