Wabara in Provisional Olympics Squad Thursday, 29th Dec 2011 16:58
Town loanee Reece Wabara has revealed that he has been named in the provisional Team GB squad for next summer’s Olympics. Wabara is with the Blues for one more game before he is due to return to Manchester City at the end of his 93-day spell.
The 19-year-old full-back or centre-half tweeted: “Delighted to be included in the provisional Team GB Olympic squad.”
Wabara, an England U20 international, has made one start and five sub appearances for Town since joining on loan in September.
Blues pair Tommy Smith and Cody Cropper are in with a chance of representing New Zealand and the USA respectively at the Games.
Can't imagine we're paying much, if anything, for his wages. His parent club is Manchester City who aren't exactly begging for change. They would be grateful for a team to give him some minutes so he develops given he's a distance from the first team so it's mutually beneficial for both of us
Another jewell gem would love to know how we are affording man city wages for him to do ***k all - what a great loan good stuff from the clueless manager and ive seen him play so would agree if its the best team GB can do we are stuffed
This just goes to show why football should not be part of the Olympics.
The Wabara loan was a strange one, as it seems it was not with a view to a permanent move. Yes, he provided us some short term cover at right-back. Let's sign a new permanent right-back in January please.
You so-called 'fans' are laughable, completely, utterly, laughable. Hardly any of the community on this website know about how a football club is run nor do they know how a f****** football match is played... seriously, all of you... why don't you stop sitting behind a computer screen and visit the stadium to watch a game or go to an away day, you plastic supporters. But on to the subject, we are paying nothing or Reece Warbara. At 19 years old with only a few minutes to his Man City career, he is on hardly anything for wages and we, therefore, are paying peanuts, if anything, to have him here on loan. This is a 19-year-old boy with ambition, at Man City, fighting for a position in any kind of professional football club in a footballing world where, like Shane Supple gave us a hint towards, the business is very very rough.
