The real Ravel revealed?
Good to see Ravel Morrison get a couple of goals in the 3-2 win at Sporting Clube de Portugal last night, the second a cracking long range strike. He played 27 times and scored three goals in the Championship for Birmingham last season and made three cup appearances, so he now has a full season behind him. City watchers also praised his work rate after some initial problems with Lee Clark, so it seems like he's maturing as a proper player. And remember he was supposed to be the most gifted player to arrive at Man United since Paul Scholes, so let's hope he fulfils that potential in E13.
