    Wonder why we bother ….Moyes won’t play him in the Prem….interesting he scored more than Mbuma last year

    Being positive unlike others I believe its a good move to sign up and coming players. There is so much criticism about age of squad and cost of long established players let’s go for youth at last.
    Won’t have any option as getting experienced players who can add value is nigh onbimpossible!
