Joyce: Henriquez Is A Great Lad

Reserves boss Warren Joyce has been singing the praises of our summer signing, Angelo Henriquez, claiming that he is already settling in well.

The Chilean teenager scored on his debut for the club in the recent 4-2 win against Newcastle Under-21s but struggled to see too much of the ball at Sunderland as he was tightly marked by two big centre-halves.

Joyce has said that the plan was for Federico Macheda and Joshua King to offer more support from wider roles to prevent the 18-year-old from becoming isolated, although this didn’t really work as planned.

“It’s a long-term project,” Joyce told MUTV. “Angelo is a great lad. He’s come to the country and fitted in well. He’s working hard in training but we had three forwards up there [at Sunderland] even if we didn’t play like that in the first half. It wasn’t just one up front – we had three forwards looking for rotations but we didn’t retain the ball long enough to get into positions where we could develop those situations.”

    Angelo is a long term project. Originally signed a deal with us several years ago and has had in mind to learn english and prepare for the move. I hope we can get him enough games. We have a great deal of tallent at forward. Just imposible to predict who will bread through.

    Breaking stuff:

    Terry’s defence ‘improbable, implausible and contrived’

    Time for Captain Terry to shut it and take his punishment.

    FletchTheMan @ 10:27: “Terry’s defence ‘improbable, implausible and contrived’ ”

    If that’s the case then how come he only got a four-match suspension whereas Rio got eight months for going shopping ?

    If this lad works out and developes the way SAF and the coachs think he will, then we will have a brilliant talent on our hands.
