    Lol… Great striker in the making. Never has the eagles striking force been so deadly with lots of wonderful options. It’s left to the coaching crew to blend them intelligently to achieve positive results.

      Wow, this is an amazing selection right there. However, Didn’t Tammy Abraham reproached Pinnick’s hand when he respectfully extended it to him in 2017. How can one forget too easily so soon the scone and abuse that average player rained on our Chainman of NFF at the time. Tammy has since then relapsed to obscurity in his games.

        Well to my best knowledge.. He is still having playing time at Aston villa and still scores the last time I checked..
        The young lad just wanted the best for himself
