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.

The Price of (Partial) Success by samblueips
A stronger squad, with several consistent performers, has been a crucial factor in Ipswich’s success this season. If we remain a Championship club next season, however, we are likely to see exits. The idea that Mick McCarthy’s holistic strategy, planning for the long-term future of the club, may fall apart because of the magnified finances and stature of Premiership is an unfortunate but very real possibility.

Free Willie(ams) by samblueips
For much of this season, Ipswich were dire to watch. On numerous occasions, ninety minutes felt much longer. It was the only time in my fourteen years of being a season ticket holder that I had felt that way.
