US Youngster on Trial
Saturday, 21st Nov 2009 12:45
TWTD has learnt that US midfielder Devann Yao spent last week on trial with the Blues. The 19-year-old wideman is a free agent, having previously spent time as a youth player in France, Italy and Scotland.
Yao, born in New York to an Ivorian father and Italian mother, which qualifies him for an EU passport, was with French side Metz’s youth academy for three seasons having joined them at 13.
A year in Italy playing in the reserves with Livorno and Pisa was followed by a short spell in Scotland with St Mirren’s youth set-up before he returned to the US, where he has spent time on trial with the New York Red Bulls.

Mick Gives Us Wings by JollyJourno
I wish I could have been there when Mick McCarthy first tasted it. The look on his face. The glint in his eye. The dawning realisation that this was the missing ingredient in the promotion recipe he's been formulating ever since arriving at Portman Road.

What a great week to be a Town fan! Nobody ever handed out prizes in August, but it is exhilarating to be top of the pile with 10 points, 10 goals and number 10 signed up on a long-term deal.
