Shocks me that some fans are still sticking up for Tony Xia and think he has our best interests at heart.

We re-tweeted an article by SupChina columnist Mark Dreyer about Tony Xia at the weekend.

Different ideas on how Jack Grealish might be sold.  I don’t like either!  I don’t actually buy the Chelsea FC one.  Why would they want to buy and loan back?  He’s ready for the Premiership now.

There is a lack of certainty around so many aspects of the club at the moment, but one of the things we are almost guaranteed to see happen next season is the promotion of a number of youth players into the first team squad.

With the exception of Keinan Davis, Steve Bruce was reluctant to rely much on the younger players coming through the ranks as he banked on experience to get us up.
