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.

Sign Jermaine Defoe today and we'll have FOUR players in the squad!! Now there's a thought, eh Martin? Congrats to all three Villans.
