I agree with pretty much everything already said.
Peterborough didn't get the ball to him early on but once they did he looked their most dangerous player.

Very good delivery, good movement, and good touch.
But he's not strong enough at the moment and he also struggled to take advantage when one on one with the opposition.

Posh belong somewhere between the championship and league one at the moment so it's the perfect place for him to develop.
And he looks like he has enough about him to command a starting place.

I appreciate that but it's made to sound like he was tiring after 30 mins, not 60!
As I said before, I didn't actually think he looked unfit. He didn't seem off the pace or anything, the only reason I said he faded was because Posh didn't seem to have any attacks in the last 10 of the first half and it was all Brighton so couldn't really get involved.

Anyway, if anyone's not having a wild Saturday night you could always watch the first half below. I don't think he touched the ball until Brightons first goal (Around 6 minutes IIRC) and his best spell was around 15-35 mins. I can't be bothered to find individual highlights so you'll have to endure the match like I did ;) He's number 20 btw

You a Boro fan then?

Really impressed with Jermaine Anderson in that YT vid. Only 18 apparently, and looked a step above any of the rest of the team. If I was an EPL manager looking to build my youth pool, I'd be taking a serious look at that kid.

BBC sport are reporting that we have recalled McEvoy. He seems to have been getting a reasonable amount of game time at Peterborough (and judging by the reports has played quite well), so I wonder if this means that Poch is planning on bringing him into the first team squad.

Tottenham Hotspur recall Kenny McEvoy from Peterborough
Winger Kenny McEvoy has been recalled by Tottenham Hotspur from his season-long loan with Peterborough United.

The 20-year-old, who is yet to make a first-team outing for Spurs, made eight appearances for Posh this season.

He scored one goal in his two months at the League One club, in a 3-2 victory over MK Dons at London Road.

"We would like to thank Kenny for his efforts and wish him the best of luck in his career," read a statement on Peterborough's club website.

Hopefully he'll get a shot with the first team. Or he is being loaned back out to a championship club. Only way this makes sense.

Maybe a loan at a Championship club is on the cards?

Peterborough fans saying they didn't give him a proper chance and one guy said he's surprised it didn't happen sooner. In other words, he's not coming back because he's been amazing and will get a better loan/move near the first team.
