I think Young shoudl start!! He's a lot better on the left wing than Joe "I'm going to beat a man then cut back and pass it backwards" Cole. At least Ashley gets to the byline and gets some balls into the box!! Baird an international standard RB had a torrid time against him!! Israel would be seriously scared of his pace!!

Fantastic news for all three of them, although McClaren will probably stick Ashley in Goal.
