After years of being promoted as an ‘exciting young talent` it seems that someone has finally got wise to the myth and mystery that is Shola Ameobi. Brought on for his debut in September 2000, it`s been seven and a half years of alleged promise from the lad as KK finally looks to pull the rug out from under his feet. Having played appallingly in the recent reserve game v Citeh at SJP, the gaffer has decided to read him the riot act:

‘Our challenge, mine in particular, is to look at the club and assess players. I’ve told him what I think. You think he’s a young lad, but he’s 26 now and he’s got to make the breakthrough quickly or maybe there’s somewhere else he can do it. There’s a better player in Shola than we’ve seen so far, but the test will be when he gets his chance – and he will. He’s one of the challenges here and it’s one I relish.’
