|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.

Why did we bring him here on loan for!!!!!!!!! total waste of money
|blues1 added 17:28 - Dec 29|
just one thing to say on this subject. WHY?
|Frankley_Blue added 17:30 - Dec 29|
He's just like JET ... if he was even half as good as he seems to think he is then he'd bet a starter in our team. But he isn't and he doesn't ... Team GB? Whatever!

This has to be a joke right?
|Garv added 17:32 - Dec 29|
He was brought here for cover, do any of our fans own a brain? We will have been paying peanuts.

Shows you how little the selections people know.

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
|B91 added 18:19 - Dec 29|
Mostly ignorant comments, we haven't seen much of him so how can you be so sure that he's rubbish and not worthy of a place in the squad?
|Crock added 18:50 - Dec 29|
@B91 Because he is deemed to be not as good a right back as Carlos Edwards who himself is not a right back.

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

Really not that fussed about the Olympics.
|irishtim added 19:09 - Dec 29|
Garv. always respect & enjoy your opinions . But wabra? Never going to be a itfc player.
|Mark added 19:12 - Dec 29|
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.

Wouldnt make the Red Lion Sunday Pub League Squad
|power19 added 20:23 - Dec 29|
Jewell really cant win. If he hadnt brought in a RB and Edwards got sent down - he would have looked unept and when Edwards didnt get sent down he still gets grief.
Thats one job I wouldnt want!!
|Ely_Blue added 22:32 - Dec 29|
When will people realise that he was bought here at the time when a certain Mr Edwards was on the verge of facing a bit of time at her majesty's pleasure after his misdemeanors!
|itfcsmithlarr added 23:22 - Dec 29|
Don't rate him tbh, will be suprised if he makes the final cut.
|Strikes added 23:34 - Dec 29|
There must be some kind of raffle taking place for places in the Team GB side. And just to be fair to all four nations, six each from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The involvement of the Scots will ensure we don't make it out of the group stage. I do hope we don't get Peru or Iran...

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.
You guys know nothing.
