Marlon James Signs

So much for the youth movement!  It seems that Orvill  and Edwini Bonsu will have two mentors next year in experienced strikers Gbeke (wait, I am not sure if he has signed on for 2009) and Marlon James.   James is 32, tall and lean, and physically the same shape as Sebrango.  6 foot 2 is a good size for a striker, and with big Gbeke the two will be a formidable pair for any defence to deal with.  I imagine the plan is to have Gbeke and James knock the stuffing out of the two center backs and then to unleash speedy Edwini-Bonsu and Dever Orgill as subs when the centre backs tire.   It looks good to me!  

James will also keep his fellow countryman and national team-mate Wesley Charles company.  I hope James is good out of the box, because we have had a few flops over the years…  If he is anything like the quality and character of Wesley Charles however, we can expect great things.
