The 15 Premier League starlets looking to make a ‘breakthrough’ this 2012-13 season
As the 2012-13 Premier League season remains several weeks away, supporters seem content to split their time watching what Roy Hodgson claims to call football and reading the gossip columns.
But why should supporters get their hopes up, only to have them smashed back down again? With this years rumour mill resembling more bestselling fiction than journalistic fact, don’t look to online ITK’s to fill you with summer excitement.
Instead, look to your own clubs for the spark of youth and excitement that this summer is missing in spades. Tell the chairman to put the chequebook away and give some of these lads a promotion.
Here are 15 of the best young starlets who are looking to set the league on fire next season. Some are more obviously set for superstardom and others face a fight for the first team. But rest assured, all mentioned are more Wayne Rooney than Michael Ricketts. Or so the author hopes.
Rate this lot’s chances? Think they’re set for stardom? Or would you rather see them shipped off on loan and let the big boys come in for a fee? Tell me what you think or how wrong I am on Twitter, follow @samuel_antrobus
