Left In The Wilderness
So as the Charles N'Zogbia deals looks dead in the water after weeks, months and what seems like years of speculation draws to an end when he has his Villa medical this weekend.
What can Bruce do to solve our lack of width on the left hand side?
The papers have thrown out Adam Johnson's name but we all know this is a ridiculous rumour. Johnson, probably on £80k a week, has Champions league football and a title to compete for so he would not move back to the North East.
Why not try and test the water with Wolves for Matt Jarvis?
He tore us apart when Wolves beat us at the Stadium of Light with great wing play and dangerous crosses. Yes, he may be right footed, but so was Magic Johnston all those years back. It could work again!
The main problem with this deal would be the price...again and the fact he is young and English but why not see if Wolves would consider a bid for £10m?
Even Mic Mac said today: 'Who's to say that we might not turn somebody over?
'There might be somebody leaving, there might be someone coming.
'There's Jarvis, Doyle and Fletcher, I'd like to keep them but something could happen, I don't know.'
Haway Brucey let's try and go for a winger who can make things happen for Gyan and Sess bomb!
