Ok, so it’s old news by now and I’m late again.
Ah well, that’s what you get for working outside of this site for a living and it’s still something I want to talk about, as it’s quite simply good news.
Some of you will know that I’ve been raving about this kid for a while and seeing his comments that he’s been a Villa fan since the age of four makes me feel all the more better.
A new Gabby in the making if you like, but let’s hope he’s a bit more productive eh?
A glance at Newsnow seems to indicate a 1000% rise in his wages.
So probably £2.5k a week up to £25k a week, which is realistic.
Now he’s earning proper money, no doubt he’ll now be expected to step up a level or two, which is where I still continue to hope that he won’t get pushed too far, too fast.
Well, winger, for me, is the trickiest position of the lot to actually come good at.
Think of some of the Villa wingers down the years who started out well and then failed; there’s plenty of them, same as there has been at many clubs.
Regardless, I see something a little “extra” in this kid, which to me makes him look a better prospect than even Tony Daley and I really hope he comes as good as we no doubt all expect.
