Willem,I would be mad if we had sold him but I dont mind him going on loan.I would prefer him to stay as well but he'll probably play more in Monaco than Parma.Besides,a whole season as a starter with the champions of France (that means pressure at the top fly etc etc) will not hamr him.He can retunr twice the player he is now.
Appiah is not too young. He was superb for Udinese 2 years ago.
Maybe it will take a couple of months to come back to top form, but when he does he is good enough too keep Bogho or Almeyda out of the starting-eleven.
Appiah not Old? he's nearly 20 that seems young to me, when you are that young and play with a big club i think you need
at least a few years to play yourself in the line-up he has to wait for his chances...
