Ashley Young: Redux

Going to be a bit weird for Jack.  He probably idolised Young when he was with us under the MON years and next season they could be playing alongside each other.

This moment erased any residual anger I had for him, it was a moment of weakness and I saw he’s still human. The story of football is not the wins or the losses, but the people you meet along the way.

That bird restored some faith in the game for me, and I welcome Ashley back with open arms.

More than happy with this one, is he Ashley Young of 10 years ago flying down the wing, whipping in dangerous crosses time and time again, well of course not.

Will he provide us with a bit of experience to a young squad - yes, a winning mentality - yes, cover for full back/wing positions - yes, is he better than Elmo and Taylor (who he's effectively replacing) - yes.

Like others have alluded, if this was one of our main signings then I'd be worried but when we have just broke our transfer record on Buendia and putting bids in for Smith-Rowe I trust our club/NSWE/Deano with this one.

I think it could be a shrewd one.

Maybe we can have a announcement video where he shakes hands with a seagull with a mouth full of shit and the hashtags #WelcomeHomeAshley #AllIsForgiven #TreacheryBecomesNullWithTheShitOfTheGull

Fair to adjust this to “seems to go against what some people thought the clubs buying policy is”?

Note I used "seems", I have no inside track on Lange/Smith/Purslows innermost thoughts!

It will mean we will have three Youngs on our books, Ashley, Bradley and Kadan.

Maybe Luke's still hiding somewhere.  I don't actually remember him leaving.

That was it for me, we were square from that moment forward. How can you hold a grudge after an actual bird not only shat in his mush, but it did so live on television.

He dove, dove shat, end of.

I hate to be the one to break this to you guys, but this actually never happened.

just need to get milner, barry and downing back now and possibly gabby and champions league here we come 🤟

The irony is all those players are still playing, Gabby is the youngest by a couple of years yet he's the one who retired a couple of years ago (and could easily be argued actually retired 4 years even earlier than that). Such a waste.

They both play in more sedentary positions where they just need to hold their position and not cover large distances. They don't require lots of explosive bursts either.

I had one of those last week after a Thai Green Curry.  Not pleasant.   I mean REALLY not pleasant.

Those who enjoy incorporating the word "gash" into our player's names in the Pre-Match Thread must be licking their lips. He'll lineup alongside such luminaries as:

El Gashy

Trezegash

Matty Gash

Matt Targash

John McGash

and of course....

Wesley Gash.

Welcome Gashley!

All this nostalgia bs makes me wanna puke. I feel like a bird has shat in my mouth!

I fail to see how nostalgia or he was a great player for us, makes him a good signing. 

I always liked him and still do. But I don’t believe he'll be a good signing. These types of move always end in tears. Reminds me of the Lescott signing.
