Cantwell

Recommended Posts

Seems a good move, to Holland. Gives him experience and further development, in place of sitting on the bench watching German players here.

This is good news. Young players in the Netherlands are trained to analyse and solve in-play problems rather than look to the touch line for the coach to tell them what to do. Todd should come back to us as a more mature player.

Supposedly very technical football they play over there. He certainly needs some first team time if he''s going to break into the team next season. Good luck to him!

Sending young players to Holland has had mixed results for Chelsea.

The league is pretty slow and not too physical so not particularly similar to the Championship - but first team football is what Cantwell really needs now and if he can get a string of games under his belt it would do him the world of good.

Fortuna are managed by Sunday Oliseh, who knew a thing or too about the more physical side of the game at least.

as someone has said on Twitter, perhaps they have someone who we''ve got our eye on. Christopher Braun - a German right back apparently plays for them. I''m completely plagiarising someone''s tweets by the way.

I think it was Paddy who suggested it might be likely that Cantwell is potentially a sweetner for some kind of deal so we''ll wait and see Woodman!

What drugs do players get tested for? I know he''s not going to Amsterdam, but let''s say a young man in another country gets bored one night or bows to peer pressure and decides to have a little shmoke, would he get in trouble?

Don''t get too excited about him improving very much while he''s playing in the Dutch league-remember RVW?

For every RVW there is a Suarez. [:D]  I''d rather see him out getting experience, learning his trade and a bit of a different footballing culture. Good luck to him, it might not work out but it''s worth doing.

‘Cannabinol is a degradation product of cannabis, which occurs in

hashish and hemp. Ebi Smolarek has already launched an appeal, as the

substance is also found in various foods and chocolate bars sold in

health food shops, which he does eat,’ explains Swart.

Smolarek’s lawyer E. Vrijman will base his appeal on a slew of

scientific articles published by some of the world’s most respected

academic journals, which show that consumption of only a small quantity

of food and chocolate bars containing hempseed or hempseed oil are

sufficient to test positive in a drug test. ‘Smolarek does use such

products,’ acknowledges Swart. ‘What’s more he eats them a lot.’So he didn''t inhale but he did get the munchies.

I''m looking forward to him coming back here - maybe tougher but certainly more experienced.

Could be a key player for us next season without Wes and/or Maddison.

Another MOM performance last night. The Sittard fans want to keep him. It''s really helping his career this loan move.

Let’s hope he isn’t enjoying it too much, we want him back here next year! Good for the lad, we certainly have a shed load of quality youngsters! Godfrey, Lewis, Maddison, Cantwell to name just three.

How’s Fonkue developing anyone know?

Lewis is not quality. He’s still very much in the potential category, and has been awful in recent weeks.
