Picture the scene, you’re a young up-and-coming wonderkid who currently plies his trade for Cardiff City, but after a strong season, a tsunami of clubs are crashing in, wanting to pull you away to the Premier League. So who would you choose? Manchester United and the Lord of the Ferg, where you probably wouldn’t get a sniff of first-team football for at least a year? Arsenal and Prof Wenger – where it wouldn’t be inconceivable to start quite a few games? Liverpool and Rafa the Gaffer (although the Spaniard’s interest is apparently waning) – or perhaps Everton and the Moyesiah – and signing for the blue half of Merseyside could be the best route to first-team football, but your wages would be miniscule and you would probably still be paid in groats.
The choice is yours, who would you choose?
