The 22-year-old, who came through the Sevilla youth ranks, moved to the Birmingham club in June on a three-year deal and is one of six summer signings by manager Paul Lambert.

With a new campaign less than three weeks away, Luna, who made 11 La Liga appearances during a loan spell at Mallorca last season, told the club's website: "Football here in England is very quick, very rapid. It's a complicated league.

"For my own view, regarding my skills, it's great that this league is fast. I still need to adapt to things, of course, and feel I am all the time, but I believe it's good for me as I feel I have the characteristics to play here.

"I think I have good athletic abilities - I am quick as a player and that is important in a division like the Premier League.

"It's one of the best leagues in the world and I can't wait for the season to begin. It is close now and I am really excited about that. I can't wait because it's a new experience for me."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
