Powell Update

Powell Update

Yesterday, escaping from the intense heat outside, I took the opportunity to take a look at a potential United target in the League Two play-off final.

With Crewe Alexandra taking on Cheltenham Town, at Wembley, it was the ideal opportunity to cast a quick eye over eighteen year-old Nick Powell.

Powell, tipped for a bright future in the game, showed exactly what he has in his locker with the splendid opening goal of the game. Collecting the ball just outside the area, his first touch created enough space to aim a shot into the top corner that left the Cheltenham keeper clutching at thin air.

Throughout the remainder of his time, on the pitch, Powell looked a class above, skill-wise, the others and although Crewe secured promotion to League One with a 2-0 win, you get the feeling, listening to the Crewe boss, Steve Davis, that his days at the club are numbered with Davis remarking,

"Nick`s a huge talent - a special player who produces on the big occasions and who will be going into the Premier League."

Hopefully, with us!

He'll cost a pretty penny but if he makes it he'll be more than worth it.
