We have a couple of Midos mates on trail at the moment, both regulars for the Egyptian national side. Alves looks promising, and more skilful than Yakubu. He has been playing for the last year in the Dutch league and should therefore suit the more physical English style of play than most foreigners. Glad to see that Mendietta is up for sale, we had a couple of good seasons out of him but he is past his best now for sure. Lets hope Rochembach goes too.
