"I think it's fair to say since Gregory Vignal left on loan, Neil Mellor has been the butt of a few jokes. The thing about Neil is, when he scores in training, he still celebrates as if it's a league game. He runs off off on his own to the corner flag with his hand in the air. The lads call him Shearer because of his celebrations and he's definitely one to watch. He's a brilliant finisher and one of my best mates at the club."
"You tell me the name of any other player over the last ten years who has scored 27 goals in 27 reserve team games."
