  1. The academy will soon be back on its feet again, methinks

  2. See this kid play last season in the FA youth cup, he’s good

  3. If you can believe all the Metro rumours we are in for Alen Halilovic,Frenchman Adrien Rabiot, Hernandez and Ar*enal’s,Gervinho.The one I like is Charlie Austin for either Nolan or Jarvis plus cash.Great news about young Dobson.If he is handled correctly he can replace Jenkinson when he goes back to daddy Wenger.

    • Roman. Halilovic is probable, Rabiot unlikely and Hernandez possible but getting anything for Jarvis or Nolan from anyone is pure fantasy. Every club knows they are sh**.

  4. Whats even better is that he has been a hammer since he was 5 years old according to an interview he gave so happy days all round !

  5. Another young potential star signs, youth players given a chance, linked with Halliovic how times change. 12 months ago it was Crouch,Cattermole,Wickam and even Joey Barton with some on WPTID saying they would be great additions… Premier league experience ain’t the be all and end all look at Sacko ,maybe now we’ve got a manager who casts his net far and wide to identify a player instead of simply the north west of England is going to bare fruit…

  6. It’s great that the youngsters of other clubs are coming here not the other way around,
    Be great to take a couple off the Spuds but there probably not good enough,
    Hope he fulfills his potential
    Hope the silence from the 2 Daves at the moment means they are in Spain getting the signing of Song and Halliovic done,
    That leaves a couple of weeks to grant Nolan his Taxi ride and it’s a stretch limo with Magia,
    Jarvis and JOB on board

  7. That’s the signing that would show intention Bubs and the direction we’re going, apparently he is one footed, no premiership experience and lightweight from our good sources at WPTID lol
