    If true let's give it time, looks like he will be on a trial period so where's the problem ? No difference really than taking a youngster from a Prem club on loan some comes off such as Adam Armstrong, plenty don't. Atleast there won't be premiership manager breathing down TMs neck demanding he plays.

    He could be a bit of a discovery though.

    Today I was talking to someone who works at LA Galaxy and he reckons McBean is really good. Mind you, WTF do Americans know about football.

    Hopefully it is so we don't end up getting David Bell's on 4 year contracts for silly money :)

    The thing is with McBean, he has been on loads of trials over here and never been taken on. I wonder if we are being extra careful?

    Bell had his moments...linked up very well with Keown and scored a screamer at Palace...without defending him I don't think he was as bad as some like to make out...

    Yes but not the reported 7k on a 4 year contract good. £1,456,000 if it was all paid in full.

    He did score a couple of good goals though, but where he went after us was telling.

    So we are waiting on international clearance on the Fin, so how does McBean qualify when he can't even make the first team in the U.S.?

    Nothing against McBean at all, I wanted him to play more, but this sends alarm bells ringing. Why were they spending time bringing players in like this when our first team was so comically poor?

    There has to be more to this, something like them paying us a few quid for him to come over and train and get a bit of experience of english football, albeit in the reserves.
