Mellis - Needs to Grow up

Mellis - Needs to Grow up

Barnsley`s new midfield signing Jacob Mellis has said the time has now come for him to grow up both on and off the field.

Mellis was forced out of Chelsea last season after a training ground prank and realises it is now make or break for his career if he is to make the most of his talent.

He sees Barnsley and in particular boss Keith Hill as the ideal combination to bring out the best of his football ability and keep him in check off the field.

I agree and if he hits the form he is a capable of and gets his head right I think he could do well for Barnsley but only time will tell.

must be quite difficult, so young, so talented, not always blessed with brains and then given loads of money. I'd have been a liability at that age if I'd got half the money they get!

I agree The Fear. I know I would have been too. I would have probably thrown my career thinking about booze and women. At least Mellis has realised he needs to sort himself out and concentrate on his football career before he throws away his talent.

Fresh from making the JPT final after the penalty shootout win over Fleetwood, where Barnsley will face Oxford who beat Millwall, the Reds look to keep league run going today.

Johnson Confirmed As Bristol City Boss

Unsurprisingly, like I said from the minute it was made clear he wanted to talk to them, Johnson has ended reign as Barnsley Head Coach to become the new one at Bristol City.

Highlights - Fleetwood (h)

Barnsley drew one-one (two-two on aggregate) with Fleetwood in the JPT on Thursday, winning four-two on penalties.

Johnson Talking To Bristol City

Despite his affinity with the club I hadn't given much though to Johnson leaving for Bristol City but as it happens this could be the case with him given permission to speak to them.
