  • Great news for all 3 of them! Ashley has earnt it and GB finally seems to have earnt himslef a regular slot in the squad! About time!

  • Well done. Young will be our player of the season, I know it’s early but this lad has improved imensly over the last few months, with both us and the U21’s

  • I think Young shoudl start!! He’s a lot better on the left wing than Joe “I’m going to beat a man then cut back and pass it backwards” Cole. At least Ashley gets to the byline and gets some balls into the box!! Baird an international standard RB had a torrid time against him!! Israel would be seriously scared of his pace!!

  • Sign Jermaine Defoe today and we’ll have FOUR players in the squad!! Now there’s a thought, eh Martin? Congrats to all three Villans.
