After the euphoria of the Buendia signing this is just so underwhelming. Really not convinced.

Yeah but don’t let it get you down or make you feel negative about our activity and targets, plenty of time and money to spend yet… I get the feeling we are serious about challenging for the European spots this season and will strengthen accordingly. So glad we got Buendia and so early, exciting times…

Young will just be an option for the squad/bench and to add some experience & know how (why we need him I don’t know, Terry has enough of an influence), hoping he’s matured and become less of a bellend during his time w Inter… Manure do that to players…


Can’t see him contributing to defence but should allow us to rest & rotate our wingers, cover.

As always, I have full faith and trust in Dean.

Agreed, that’s the way I see it.

Not a fan but oh well.

I love Trez, but given that he'd been relegated to impact sub, I think I'd actually prefer Ash in that role. His crossing ability still hasn't left him, and I imagine he's still about as adept at beating a defender as Trez is.

Do we even have a first team squad member who is over 30?

He brings multiple title winning mentality, vast experience and can cover 4 positions. 

No. Brainer. 

(I accept that he's a penis)

Well I suppose that’s some consolation, he will be better than Trez… but most players are.

Will he have the legs and energy? Can he still compete in this league?

Don’t like to see us signing old players, we have enough experience at the club. But if it’s just for a year to full out the squad then…. ok…

Hopefully, he won’t be needed much…

Also he can come on as a replacement for say Bert on the wing and be more defensive

I think that's exactly what he'll be. 

We actually lost a lot of experience this summer. Our oldest outfield players are Mings and Martinez? Who given their age actually are pretty inexperienced at the top level.

Young is an upgrade on both Taylor and Elmo and I'm fairly certain will be on lower wages than those 2 (combined). Sounds like a net positive to me on the footballing front, experience front (with respect to Taylor and Elmo, their experience pales in comparison to Young's) and even the financial front.

Was that meant to impress? 🤣 Probably the worst player vid I’ve ever seen!

Other than his goal he looked totally ineffective there!

So his crossing ability, tackles and assists didn't mean anything?

What were you expecting? Buendia levels of entertainment or something?

Yeah, I’m sure he’s going to be a backup winger or to come on late in games. Wonder why he wants to sign… I assume he will be getting a decent wage especially if it’s just a 1 year deal…

Most of our players have at least 2 years of PL experience now. In Terry, we have ample experience, inspiration and guidance at the club in a way that he can relate to current players. I just don’t see the need.

I can’t imagine he’s going to play at fullback or do well there, he’s not defensively strong or adept and I would be concerned to see him line up there against the opposition in this league…

Has ever played at fullback? And even if he has, I doubt he’s been put under a massive amount of pressure due to the clubs he’s been playing for who have the majority of possession in nearly all games. Played as an attacking LWB at Inter.

Just going off the vid mate, found it amusing…

Wasn’t the best demonstration, he’s constantly getting tackled and attacks breaking down there. They could have made a better compilation.

Sounds sensible, as he'll be able to cover at fullback if we need him as well
