Turner to Bees
Just a few days after I was touting him for a first team chance, Michael Turner today signed permanently for Brentford for an undisclosed fee
. Much was made of the Lewisham boy's future over the past few seasons but I guess Curbs didn't think he could step up. I never saw him play to be honest but people that did, say he was not the quickest.
I always have a little bit of apprehension when we move on a so called promising youngster although Curbishley does have a good record in this department - Kevin Nicholls, Dean Chandler, Paul Sturgess, Paul Emblen, Charlie MacDonald, Mark McCammon (voted by Millwall fans as one of their worst ever players) to name but a few have never come back to haunt us.
However two players that were released and have gone on to do well are Linvoy Primus and Danny Shittu. Coincidently both centre halves like Turner.
I love the deceptive Real Madrid headline on the official site
today about us joining forces with Spanish side UD San Pedro from Marbella who play in the Spanish Tercera Division, group nine (more
). I'm not knocking the expansion of our impressive junior coaching network but how about us considering more grown arrangements of the likes of the Beveren/Arsenal or Antwerp/Man Utd ones? Or are we still licking our wounds from the Inter Milan farce?
