What's Nouble At Upton Park?
Well, you could knock me down with a feather, we have signed somebody after all and, given he turns 18 in September, he may just be a contender for first team action next season. Nouble sounds more like "one for the future" but at least we now have an option up front should Cole join Beano in the treatment room. It is also reassuring to hear Duxbury talking about bringing in others to bolster our attacking options.
I'm not about to put up my hands and say all my pessimism was misplaced yet but should we land two more attackers and a right back of reasonable quality before the season kicks off, then I will gladly do so. I am not looking for world beaters (although that would be nice), just players I think could do a job in the Prem. The basics are there for a top 6 side but we need more depth and options to sustain a challenge over a whole season. Man Utd did once prove that you can win things with kids but a sprinkling of experience here and there generally helps.
Nouble sounds like a Clarke signing to me. I'm still waiting for Nani to do his stuff by sourcing three top quality, inexpensive signings.
