Morrison loaned to Birmingham

West Ham starlet Ravel Morrison has moved to Birmingham on loan for the season.

ravel-morrisonMorrison was signed from Manchester United in January with the reputation of being  the best young player they have produced since a certain ginger nut called Paul Scholes.

Ferguson was said to be furious with the demands Morrison made when it came to negotiating a new contract, £40k per week was the rumoured request from camp Morrison, which Ferguson thought was unacceptable from a player who had only made a couple of first team outings.


Allardyce was well aware that Morrison came with baggage and was known to always be in trouble up in Manchester, however he took a gamble on the young man who no doubt has precocious talent, but within no time at all he was in trouble with the FA for homophobic tweets.

Rumours have been rife as to why Morrison has been shipped out when West Ham really need some creativity in the middle of the park, my personal favourite is that while apparently being injured and unable to train he was actually in Disneyland and was posting pictures of himself on-line like all clever truants do! I think his favourite film must be Ferris Bueller’s Ravel Morrison’s Day Off.

So let’s hope a move to Birmingham with regular first-team football can sort out Ravel, otherwise he will be in danger of wasting his undoubted talent.
