Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

What is so often forgotten is that a few teams nullified Gunter's ability to go forward. He needs to sure that he has these options and a pressing side like Huddersfield, for example,might keep a wing back at bay, Who is to say whether Yiadom would be any different. Only time would tell.
