Just read that - good for him, he deserves it. Can't wait to see whether he'd be able to nail down his place in the first team - he has looked so much better than our senior players at times that it's ridiculous
I don't rate Howedes but yes an experienced defender would help those guys. Still I have Stones top of my defender wish-list. Young, english, good passer, lot of potential. Think Smalling is ready to lead those youngsters
Yeah, I heard he picked up an injury on internationals a few weeks ago so had a look at the training pics but he was there. Mourinho doesn't hand out the odd reserve game like LVG did so I guess he'll just have to keep working hard and bide his time or maybe seek a loan in Jan.
