    Pritchard? Only seen a bit so far but he's looking good yet again. Virtually every time I've seen him playing for Swindon this season or Peterborough last (Sky) he's looked a class apart and the most impressive player on show. Can't ask much more of the kid.

    Just because he's at a lower level doesn't mean that he has to be scoring and assisting at Messi levels to prove his worth. Be a shame to let him go before giving him at least a shot imo. He's got something.

    I'd honestly rather see him get some games ahead Lennon. He's got real feistiness and demands the ball in various areas of the pitch, unlike Lennon who so one dimensional and hides half the time.

    Getting a bit ahead yourself IMO, I think we should loan him out first to a PL side

    But in a sense you're right, he couldn't do much worse than Lennon right now but thankfully, we have a back up plan called Townsend and then eventually Lamela

    I don't think it's always necessary for youngsters to be loaned to a prem side first, Bentaleb wasn't and Januzaj at Utd hasn't been. If we got an offer from a prem side that'd give him a lot more game time than us then yeah but I'd rather play him on the left than Sigurdsson personally

    But you have to consider that we are stacked with wingers and I doubt even Tim would play Pritchard in front of them-

    Townsend was loaned to QPR and came out much better so I would hope we could replicate this with Pritchard

    Are we though? Lennon and Townsend, yes, Chadli's agent said he prefers being a no10, Sigs is a central player, many say Lamela's best as a no10 and I've seen Eriksen twice say he wants to play in the centre

    He uses the ball with more purpose - more heads up - than Townsend too IMO. He works hard off the ball too, he's not scared to get stuck in.

    Not as quick as them. Average winger pace if that makes sense. This vid might give an idea, sharp enough.

    His brain is much quicker than both.

    Lennon plays week in week out in the EPL, this guy in League One.

    Get a grip.

    Disagree. Who's been more effective Bentaleb or Lennon, Januzaj or Lennon. Neither had even played league football before they got their chance. Just because he is playing league one doesn't mean he would be any worse than Lennon atm.

    You can't compare Bentaleb with Lennon.

    Re Januzaj, fair point but I'm not sure he is that level yet or ever will be. It is just lunacy to advocate the inclusion of a promising kid based on league one YouTube clips over someone who has been playing EPL footy for 8 years.

    Have you actually watched Pritchard play a full game ?
