Crewe Boss Launches Bizarre Attack on Town
Friday, 16th Aug 2019 13:56

Crewe manager David Artell has launched a bizarre attack on Town for agreeing to pay Colchester £500,000 for Kane Vincent-Young rather than making a move for Alex right-back Perry Ng, who he believes is the best player in that position in League Two.

“I've seen this morning that Ipswich have bid half-a-million quid for Kane Vincent-Young at Colchester,” Artell told Cheshire Live.

"So whoever is doing Ipswich's recruitment they should give him his P45, because he's missed out on the best right-back in the league.

"Whether it's just because it is down the road and there's press and hype from the local media I don't know, but I'm delighted they've gone for him because they've missed out on the best right back in League Two."

He added: "It's not just one though, I can think of four or five [Crewe players] off the top of my head that are ready and primed and can quite easily go on.”

Liverpool-born Ng, 23, came through the youth system at Gresty Road, breaking into their first team in 2015/16. Last season he won Crewe's Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year awards.

As reported earlier, Vincent-Young is at Town today but with his move from the U's not expected to be completed until over the weekend or on Monday.

How very bizzare. Maybe he has a point however about our potentially blinkered and limited scouting network. 😎

He may have a point or his players need praise

timkatieadamitfc added 14:05 - Aug 16
Be awesome if we switched and signed him now

runningout added 14:06 - Aug 16
good minds!!

cornishnick added 14:08 - Aug 16
Would have certainly been cheaper printing the name his shirt

Girthyguy added 14:08 - Aug 16
Odd surname does he go by Perry Ng or just Ng how is that even pronounced tbh I'm confused.

midastouch added 14:13 - Aug 16
Do our scouts not get paid for petrol beyond Essex!? Only joking! Seems an odd one this! Does he want to put the league on notice so they sign his best players?
1 or 2 look bright in the highlights from Tue to be fair:


SamWhiteUK added 14:17 - Aug 16
How on earth do you pronounce Ng?

Also, is he trying to raise funds? Why would you go about singing about how good your players are unless you want them to be taken?

Terry_Nutkins added 14:19 - Aug 16
What a crazy message...basically seems keen to sell then! Imagine if our manager was touting our own like this. It's stuoid anyway. Lambert is looking for a type of RB and one who is versatile anyway. This is moronic in all honesty and completely disrespectful to all involved (fans, our club, manager etc). To suggest another pro should get sacked. Suggest we must have been sniffing around and sour grapes.

You pronounce it as spelt, Ng, like ing without the i

Gcon added 14:22 - Aug 16
maybe he's skint and trying to drum up interest in players.

(pronounced N'yung)

casanovacrow added 14:25 - Aug 16
He has a point but is it his place to say it?

Girthyguy added 14:32 - Aug 16
Maybe we could do a swap JE for NG

iamipswich added 14:34 - Aug 16
That was the surname of my dentist on Berners Street! Ruthless man who ballsed up my root canal. Now Halesworth for me.

HighgateBlue added 14:37 - Aug 16
The anecdote behind the song "Ana Ng" by They Might be Giants is a good one. OK, only of tangential relevance, but as there was talk of how to pronounce the surname, I couldn't not mention it:

Ipswich Town pull out of signing Kane Vincent-Young as a bloke who never played higher than League Two knows more than UEFA Champions League winner Paul Lambert and his scouting team.

is this an Attack... Blimey!

alsagerblue added 15:45 - Aug 16
Having seen Ng play regularly for Crewe over the past 2 years, I can confirm that he is indeed a fine player who Is as strong going forward as well as defending.

ScottCandage added 15:47 - Aug 16
Sounds like someone is mad not to be receiving a half a million quid.

Sporall added 15:49 - Aug 16
Hardly an attack. That's poor from you Phil, sorry.

BlueandTruesince82 added 15:52 - Aug 16
Sounds like Crewe need dosh

TractorRoyNo1 added 16:03 - Aug 16
Ng us that his chemical name?

clemchung added 16:47 - Aug 16
Silly question, how much Ng would have been? more, same £500k or cheaper?
