Interesting word choice by Dusty. "I know he can carry your club." Why didn't he say, "I know he can carry our club."? He already does carry the other teams clubs. Sorryy Jonny, that was too easy. All the same, it is a poor word choice - but I think it shows that he doesn't believe that Jonny can carry the Reds.
