Thai's on trial

Ousted Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who took full
control of Manchester City on Monday, has arranged trials for three Thai
national team players at the English Premier League club.
Defenders Suree
Sukha and Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and striker Teerasil Dangda will train with the
team in Manchester next week, Thai soccer officials said on
Teerasil, 19, and Kiatprawut, 21, made their senior national team
debuts at the Asian Cup earlier this month, where co-hosts Thailand failed to
advance from the group stage.
Attacking fullback Suree, 24, has been a
regular for the national team since 2005.

At this stage I can safely say I know nothing about any of the three players, but suggestions of Thai players being brought to the club and straight into the first team appear unfounded as the move (initially) is on a trial basis only and I would be surprised if any of them has the ability (at this stage) to get anywhere near a first team spot.
