Something of course that Platini isn't fond of... we all remember this quote a while back...
“I do not like the system of Wenger. In France, Italy and Spain it is easy to buy with money the best players at 14, 15 or 16. I don’t like that.
“If my son is playing at Millwall and at 16 Manchester United come in for this player then when will Millwall have a good team?”
Mr Steve Rowley – our chief scout ex-straw-den-aire – has been watching the progress of the young midfielder, and he’s due to fly to London in the next week or so and begin his two week trial.
We’ve also been linked and have supposed agreed terms with Francis Coquelin, a French youngster currently plying his trade in France with local team Laval.
But the question on everyone’s lips are – where is the big signing? Where is the £2m plus signing – at the moment we know we’re interested in a lot of youngsters, Miquel, Coquelin, Jibril amongst some, and of course, Arsene has brought in a couple already… but we’re all waiting for the first major signing…
Patience is a virtue, but this suspense is killing me!]]>
