How's Morgan's Gaelic, I wonder?
Depends how much time he's spent in Brittany and whether he's learnt to speak some Breton.
What do you reckon? - born right in the middle of France, he debuted for Le Mans as a pro footballer, so he may have ventured into Brittany to practise his Gaelic ...
Not sure, I'll have to check with eastie.
;D ;D

Niamh is my sister's name. She winced every time someone tried introducing her in her first few years in London before embracing the puzzled pronunciations. I thought I had it bad in the UK with my name but Messrs Andrews and, more depressingly that tubby motor mouth Holmes, have unknowingly paved the way.

We need to get Morgan more minutes. He shows energy, drive and presses the ball - something that is massively missing from the rest of our midfield at the moment.

Yep, both him and Ramsey showed more in their brief cameos than the rest of the midfielders did the entire game

He closed well. I think with McGinn as an 8 and Ramsey too, we have infinitely more off the ball running.

We looked half decent for he short priod that he and Ramsey were on the pitch, definitely worth trying again from the start next week.

I think it shows how far we have come in a short space of time that we have been able to make a big money signing and spend time integrating him with the squad / tactics rather than throwing him in to sink / swim as would have been the case in the last half a dozen January windows.

Little cameos we have seen he has looked v promising....wonder if Wednesday evening will be his first start.

Really like him. He’s technically good, shows great energy and movement. He helped balance the midfield.

I thought he was really good until he picked up his knock, the last 10mins before he went off he was clearly struggling and they should've got him off sooner.

I thought he was all at sea for the first 20 mins but gradually worked his way into the game and became more influential as time went on
I was hopping mad when he was taken off until I realised why.

I like him.

Is he any better than Ramsey?

Thought he was stunted a little with the booking he picked up but he actually drove to the byline and got decent balls across a couple of times. More to come from him, I'm sure.
