Ravel trains with Under-21s


Ravel-Morrison-2Ravel Morrison was back at the club this morning but with his future continuing to look bleak.

The midfielder – due to return to Upton Park on Boxing Day – returned from Cardiff City and posted a typically ‘moody’ pic of himself on his Instagram account showing himself from legs down!

A club source confirmed the player was back “on the premises” but told ClaretandHugh he was training with the under 21s.

The club are ready to entertain any loan offers or permanent deals before making a decision on the 21 year old’s future following his disappointing spell in Wales.

Our source said:  “He needs to get himself fully fit and he’s with the under 21s in a bid to get himself up to speed.”

    Really pains me to say this, but we need to GET RID!!!!!!! Get him off the wage bill to free up some space for a player who wants to play football rather than run a crime syndicate! Gutted as he looked the real deal!

    When we gave De Canio his last chance we ended up with the most talented player this club has had,at 21 Morrinson may still have that talent inside him,why give him away and use money we need for a defender to look for another midfielder,if he is willing to work his way through the system again starting with the 21s then maybe he is worth a last chance?

    If he showed one iota of wanting to knuckle down and work hard I would keep him but I’m not holding my breath.

    Bubs, when we gave DiCanio his chance it was after he had pushed Alcock over when playing for Sheffield Wednesday and there has never been any suggestion at any club that DiCanio has ever played for that his commitment to living the life to produce world class performances every time he went out was in question. He “trained like a lunatic” (to make the most of his ability) in the words of Harry Redknapp personality wise he was difficult because he expected his team mates to show the same drive he had, that’s a long way different from Ravel who has more ability but zero drive, is lazy and appears to think the game owes him a living, on top of that he is a wannabe thug who will probably end up inside once he has wasted his last chances.

    Sad but true no 32.
