Star in stripes?

Following on from yesterday, the BBC is now carrying reports confirming that Oguchi Onyewu is our first recruit of the Transfer Window, with the American defender joining on loan from Standard Liege, with an option to make the move permanent in the summer.

To be honest, I don't know a great deal about the player, who looks to have the physical attributes needed to play in defence, together with being young enough to develop (in the event we make the move permanent). However, I have doubts that if he is a really great player then he'd probably not currently be playing in Belgium, and for all the positives of youth, the down side is that he probably lacks the experience that our defence is crying out for.

Still, as with all our players, I'll be willing him to do well - safe in the knowledge that if it doesn't work out, we haven't wasted a massive amount of money on the player.
