Thought Sama was excellent today.
He was up against a very physical forward in Anichebe and he more then matched him both in the air and on the ground.
I'd love to see him go out on loan. The odds are so stacked against him in terms of getting a CB spot in our squad, Wisdom, Coates and Kelly alone would be counted as better prospects.
It seems a real shame to be saying it after he's put in such a good performance, but we really need to start thinking about getting his value as high as possible now and preparing for the eventuality that he leaves, as he probably will.
He's shown today he can mix it with the big boys, and he's shown he's got a lot of ability. Give him a stage to display it and his value could shoot up.
Cold hearted, but those types of sales can really oil the gears of progress for the academy.
