Kenny Jackett: Has plenty of attacking options

Scottish striker Leigh Griffiths, who scored 28 goals on loan at Hibernian last season, will complement the likes of Welshman Jake Cassidy and Bjorn Sigurdarson, while 19-year-old Liam McAlinden broke into the side at the end of the campaign.

"There are some very good young players here ready to play in the first team and indeed that have been playing in the first team," Jackett told the Express & Star.

"That's a positive. I think our forward line with some of the younger players is very promising. Leigh Griffiths is an exciting player and I'm looking forward to seeing him and working with him.

"Jake Cassidy did well in League One last year and Liam McAlinden got in at Wolves just at the end and is an honest lad. Bjorn Sigurdarson is also still only 22, and in terms of young players there are four straight away and it will be very interesting to see how they respond."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
