He is seriously quick, rumours are that in a 100m sprint he beat Henry by 10yrds . I think it's worth the gamble in taking him, could be the impact player we need ala Owen in 98.
Crossing my fingers for the Roonmeister but doubt he will be ready in time
By the way, I have booked the first 2 weeks off work
games kick off at 2pm 5pm and 8pm BST every day for the first 2 weeks !!!!
Bad luck about Rooney. I'm going to have to call BS about Walcott beating Henry by 10 yards in a sprint, though. Ryan Freel probably can't beat Scott Hatteberg by 10 yards over a 100 yard sprint. On the other hand, Henry can fly, so anyone who can beat him by a stride in a sprint is cooking. How is Walcott in the air? With Beckam delivering the ball, a top notch attacker in the air is a powerful weapon.
