Got to get familiar with the name Kelechi Promise Iheanacho, winner of the Golden Ball award in the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup. Instructed to take the penalty v Aston Villa by the manager as Manuel considered he was the best on the pitch and he left with the match ball. Aged 19 it bodes well.
Bread and butter next with our league visit to Sunderland. Our team is a little unsettled due to injuries but the Black Cats seem to be blackballing half a dozen players with the introduction of a new bunch. Hard to keep track so the Tuesday game could be anything not so much the result but the score.
Yet another new record: first time ever that a team has still been in the four major competitions as February arrived.
