    At my first game this season. Shashoua and Markanday's link up play and understanding of each others game is incredible. Also the awareness and composure they show as well as Bowden is brilliant. All of their ability to turn out of trouble is top class. White is similarvto the above but not as...

    So both Edwards and Onomah in the last games made the most tackles despite being lazy players with attitude problems. It's almost as if body language or movement isn't as important as what they're actually doing. As I've always said they're no Oliver Skipps when it comes to getting around the...

    As guru said the reason Roles won't get anywhere near the first team is because no one will really get near our first team. I could literally name any academy player in the last few years and no matter how good they were predict they wouldn't get into the first team and look a genius. I feel...

    Noone changes their opinion as much as you though. If anyone does they'll say after seeing them initially, not sure on him, or he shows promise, then comment on whether he has improved or declined. You will say 'can't see what other people see, just a poor Gary Docherty' then a year later go...

    Easily the best game I've seen TOB play in since he joined the u18s at any level for us. He looked classy out there. I was watching on my phone at work so hard to see everything, but he carried the ball a bit if I remember correctly and looked really composed, showed a bit of what he was like at...

    Do you put Sancho in his own class then? I'd definitely have Edwards, Foden, Nelson in the same level, as they were coming through the academies though there a slight differences, and I'd usually include Sancho in there. 100% agree. Plus the the public targeting or indirects from Poch as...

    Jeremy Sarmiento, Charlton's big talent has gone to Benfica so is there with Willock. He was chased by City, so good choice. Also @Blake Griffin how did Crowley get on yesterday?

    Was just comparing him and Sancho on a hype/ability level. Sancho is a lot more direct in style helped by his physique, when compared to Edwards, whereas Edwards is more intricate and slippery. I just imagine regardless of how Edwards does this season, he could go on to do badly. But even if he...

    Just watched this video, cheers BG. I almost forgot how much I loved watching him play Glides across the ground, so slippery qucik little passes and one twos, really is a quality player. And most tackles as you say., I'll be honest I'm not as surprised as most people. I literally posted over...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Harry Winks

    So 3 good games against Madrid and Juve I think and it was decent and overhyped shouldn't be judged on that. a poor game against League 1 opposition, I'm pretty sure a lot of others did too, and it's enough evidence to say he's not good enough. I think Winks highest potentiialy is a regular or...

    He could potentially be a world beater, but development has been handled poorly. Sancho doing well, Nelson scored on debut for Hoffenheim yesterday too. Edwards is basically on their level or was until the last couple of years. No guarantee any of them will be World Class but he's been one of...

    Good effort with such a young team, Walcott in CM is quite interesting, but drawing will give them some confidence

    They're both young an lost their heads. Parrott let them down first Maghoma should have kept his cool but obviously didn't and let his emotions boil over too. They all want to impress and being 1 down doesn't help that. A lot of these guys are thinking they're playing for their future. Maghoma...

    Cos he was pissed off Parrott got himself sent off for no reason when we were 2 nil down and trying to chase the game. Maghoma flipped as soon as he saw Parrott push him, and rightly so I think. Passions all well and good but sometimes it's unnecessary and puts your team in a worse position

    Cheers BG. Looked good in that. Involved straight away, can only assume the manager has been able to tame this miscreant. Looked a threat but just a start, Hope he can carry it on

    Really like Clarke's goal as the stepover and cut inside is what really caught my eye before. Hopefully he Has a Bennettsesque 2nd year. Like Bennetts he was good are u18s. For different reasons they had difficult first years but the way we started this season could bring him back to his...
