Ricketts Is At It Again!

4th February 2006 :: by Jan-Eirik

Michael Ricketts took just 24 minutes to score yet another debut goal this season. Ricketts, who can't hit a barn door in a white shirt, scored on his debut for Cardiff and promptly did the same on his on-loan debut at Turf Moor. Burnley manager Steve Cotterill, a target for managerless Leicester City this week, expressed his belief in Michael when he signed him on transfer deadline day:

"He has come in and fitted in well with the lads and hopefully during the time he is here he will get fitter and we'll work on certain things with him.
"He's only 27 years of age with a good attitude. I've heard lots of things about him having a bad attitude but I don't think that's right because since he's been here he's been fantastic and we're looking forward to having him for the rest of the season."
Ricketts, who is without doubt a confidence player, responded to Cotterill's words in his first game, against Plymouth. he collected a ball from Micah Hyde in the area and smashed the ball right-footed into the bottom-left of the goal for the only goal of the game and to give Burnley their first win of 2006. There is no reason to suppose that Michael will not do as well as he did during his Cardiff City loan spell where he scored five goals in seventeen starts. Cotterill praised his new striker after the match:
"It was an excellent finish by Michael, I fancied him to score today," he said. "He has deserved his goal but there is room for improvement. He is a great lad who maybe lost his way for whatever reason but he has come here and given his all."
