For years we have been crying out for real midfielders to galvanise our team and feed our talented wide players. We thought that we had decent ones last season in Roca ( who I said was a poor man's Paul Okon when we signed him - how true) and Adams (who I said was a excellent destroyer but lacked a passing game when we signed him - how true) only to fi d they were limited in their abilities and ended up leaving our squad in a dire position. This year we brought in Ampadu, Kamara and iliv (or how ever you spell it).
If we compare last seasons midfielders to this seasons I believe we have gotten 3 more rounded players for a combined price cheaper the one from last seasons. This year's midfielders seem to a have far more rounded skill sets compared to last seasons and also seem to fit our club better. It is early days yet but who do you think are the better out of the the 2 season signings?
Scary point to consider is that Charlie Crewe who 17, Ma McFadden who is 17, Conner Douglas who is 17, Rhys Chadwick-Chaplin who is 16, Josh McDonal who is 16, Charlie Allen who is 19 plus the 2 15 years olds who are coming through are showing skills and game play that is similar to what ArchieG is currently showing in the first team.
Dare I say the Biesla blue print for our youth team players that was put forward 4 years ago in the club academy is starting to sprout?
