Sounds like he could be worth a gamble on. I'm pleased that we seem to be bringing in some young players with attacking/creative flair like him and Archer. With Thomas already on the books hopefully we'll be entertaining to watch this season! Is there maybe a chance we are taking too many gambles ?
