Who does everyone think will be our breakout young player this season? I think Rice will do well this year and hoping Oxford can develop as they could be a seriously good partnership in years to come. But I think Nathan Holland will be the one who catches the eye this year! Thoughts?

I think that MP is impressed by what he’s seen of Holland in training. His problem will be forcing his way into a totally upgraded attacking midfield.

Oxford has not progressed as much as was hoped. I can see him going back to Germany.

Marcus Brown is one for the future, too.

Listening to TIM VICKERY talking about BALBUENA on talk sport saying he has serious reservations about him making it in the premier league as he said he was very ponderous. COYI.

Did Vickery think that Mooro was a greyhound then?

Hopefully he hasn’t been bought for his speed more his his passing, tackling and general presence!
By all accounts Diop’s first two games haven’t been fantastic. But as bkk said only two weeks of pre season training done. Onwards and upwards!

I think vickery meant clumsy ponderous not speed wise which i know it can mean but he meant clumsy and awkward. COYI.

Whorya66, it was a tongue in cheek reference to Bobby Moore. You don’t need to be Usain Bolt to be a high quality footballer. I’m pretty sure that MP has an excellent handle on South American players. To be that negative about Balbuena before he’s kicked a ball for us is simply irritatingly.

Scores goals too, which must be awkward for the opposition, I imagine.

Hi markro they qasnt my words and i don't make things up that was the words of VICKERY i am an extremely passionate supporter of whufc and would love to see him succeed as in recent posts I've bigged him up and i respect VICKERY whos extremely knowledgeable about south american football and he was merely stating he was ponderous which doesn't mean just speed he was referring to him being clumsy and i didn't know who you was referring to i didn't know mooro was his nickname and thought you were referring to a today footballer so i apologise but was merely stating info from a realible source and vickery and myself wasnt trying to degrade a player i for one haven't seen but vickery has and he said he had talent also which i didn't put in my first post which i know think i should have i cannot wait to see him because on youtube he looks very strong both in the air and on the ball but I've fell into that as most players look good on youtube as you only see the good bits obviously. COYI.

Hey, Whorya66, no worries, mate. I wasn’t having a pop at you, I just get wound up by so called experts (like Vickery) emphasising the negative aspects of a new player who hasn’t had the chance to prove himself or otherwise in the Prem. I have absolute faith in MP’s understanding of players in South America.
Balbuena might be a superstar hit, or he might end up a back up CB, but we should all give the bloke a fair crack of the whip.
