|TYSON - ONE FOR THE FUTURE
(Friday 12th March 2004)
Tony Adams sees new signing Nathan Tyson as a star of the future at Wycombe. Adams secured the former Reading trainee on a two year deal with Wycombe on Thursday (11th March) with the Wycombe boss enthusing to the press "His attitude and professionalism is first class and once we get a pre-season with him I think we can really develop his game. I think he can be the 15 or 20 goal a season man that we have been looking for. He not only scores goals but he can make them."
Tyson's deal at Wycombe was originally understood to include certain clauses should Wanderers be relegated but these have since been discounted with the player saying he has made the move from Berks to Bucks in order to secure First Team football and kick-start his football career that was falling flat at Reading. Tyson also cited the Wanderers boss as one of the major reasons why he chose to make the move to Wycombe, the 21 year old commenting "It is a great compliment when someone like Tony Adams rates you. He has played against some of the best players in the world and the fact that he thinks highly enough of me to want to sign me has left me overwhelmed and overjoyed."
Tyson's move to Wycombe ends an indifferent time at Reading where he progressed through the Youth Academy ranks and played for the England Under 20 side. He originally made his Royals First Team debut back in the 1999/2000 season but went on to have loan spells at both Swansea City (where he played breifly alongside Stuart Roberts shortly before his move to Wycombe) and Cheltenham Town. He had his eyes set on breaking into the First Team this season but the departure of Alan Pardew seemed to work against him. He told the Reading Evening Post "I donít think I was given a fair chance. Maybe things would have been different if Pards hadnít left, itís hard to say. Steve Coppell is the new manager and he has got his own ideas but Iím obviously not part of that. Itís upsetting for me because I really thought I could do a lot for Reading. Itís such a shame to leave. I came up through the Academy, but I donít think thereís one player who has broken into the first-team regularly. I thought this would be my year but everything has gone pear-shaped. I was sent off at the end of last season, missed the opening of this one through suspension and then it was all downhill." He added "Iíll be very sad to leave Reading and I would like to thank the fans there as they have always supported me."
Meanwhile, Tony Adams commented ""We need good players and he is a good player. I think he can score goals in this division and in the division below, if that's where we end up." And Adams wants to find a striking partner for Tyson, adding "I don't think we have seen the best of him yet. If we had someone up there with him it would be a big help for him."
