Is Terry Dixon the real deal?
Copy and paste this link to see Dixon's goal in Poland:
What I think is exciting about the goal is the lad's speed of thought. He is offside, steps up onside and reacts really quickly to tuck away the chance. Now we have seen plenty of false dawns over the years, with Freddie Sears springing to mind, but before his knee injury, Tottenham really rated this guy. His knee is presumably better, how else could he be playing, and this goal suggests that he really does have the predator's instinct. The danger, of course, is that as soon as we pick him in the Prem, a hatchet man will test out the recovery of that knee with a juddering challenge, then it could be back to square one!
However, despite the red hair and what seems to be a few extra pounds, Dixon looks good to me. Would there be any harm in using him as a sub for now?
