Shopping at Morrison's

Today's Guardian claims we're about to sign Man United wonder kid Ravel Morrison. Good in one sense, in that Sir Alex Ferguson reckons he's the most naturally gifted kid he's seen since Giggs and Scholes. Getting him, after Newcastle showed an interest, would be something of a coup for West Ham. The downside is that United have given upon him because, apparently, he has a huge attitude problem.

In last week's Observer there was a big feature by Daniel Taylor on Morrison. He's reportedly asked for 30k a week (denied by the player), missed training and almost been to jail for intimidating a witness and in another case smashing up his girlfriend's phone. Can Sam Allardyce succeed where Fergie has failed? It might be good to get him away from Manchester, but then think of the temptations in London and indeed Sugar Hut... Would be entertaining at least, as it's a long time since we've had a proper bad boy.
