Chuba Akpom: Loaned to the Sky Blues

The 18-year-old Petrasso has joined on an initial 28-day deal after impressing whilst on loan at Oldham earlier this season.

Boss Steven Pressley told the club's website: "Michael is one player we've been watching for a while so we are delighted to get him in the building.

"He played for Oldham against us and we were impressed by his work-rate and speed during that performance.

"He is young and hungry so we think he will be a valuable addition for us."

Akpom, also 18, had a spell at Brentford earlier this term and links up with the Sky Blues on a youth loan deal until the end of the season.

Pressley added: "We've been looking to add options to our forward line and Chuba is an exciting young player who we're delighted to bring in.

"He is a young player who is hungry to prove himself, and hunger is certainly a key attribute at this football club.

"We've got a lot of games left this season and I hope Chuba will be able to help us get the results we need."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
