  1. Blah Blah …
    Just give us Henry O

  2. One of the best headers of a ball in the world and thats it. Sell him asp get the cash for carv and another striker to play off chic and give Adrian a chance as well as Arthur as both Hart and Cresswell are costing us points we have good youngsters coming through and we all saw the great mix of what we can play when Obiang and others produced what should have given us a two goal advantage. Imo can sell ayew and get In Rio for coaching with slav certainly can improve on Slavs backroom team which needs new life
