on the ‘fabulous’ Fran Merida...
"His feet are fantastic. Everything can go through Fran. He’s very left footed but he still receives on his right side and likes to put people in. He wants to receive off the back players too and gets them playing which really keeps the team ticking over. Tonight he was fabulous until he completely ran out of legs. I asked him before extra time how he was feeling. He more or less said he was absolutely dead on his feet. I didn’t want to bring him off but it was the right thing to do. It doesn’t help the team of course because when Fran Merida is playing well we tick completely and we missed that a little bit. He was terrific."

Yay! Hopefully next season he will get his first team debut, right now that might be what we need, a good two footed, scoring midfielder
