I was fairly certain that Talbot would be a fan favourite here if he could remain healthy. Just as I was certain that Simmonds would be one. It's easier once they've donned your jersey though. Before that you have to try to think about it rationally, taking away the feelings you've had towards the player before this. Rational thinking isn't always the strongest suite of a fan.
