    First time I've seen him play was this week and I think the biggest compliment I can give him is that I don't think he looked out of place.

    Playing a few games in Argentina and then making the jump to playing in England is huge. He looks like he's going to be able to cope. Especially after seeing him give Carroll a couple of sly kicks off the ball.

    We should run a celebrity 5 a side team and invite Colin Firth and Wayne Bridge so the line up can include: Firth, Foyth, Bridge!

    Agree, looked composed enough on the ball and dealt with most issues well.

    Easy to blame defenders for the second half performance but frankly it was a complete team issue - the tempo and drive was all wrong when WH stepped it up. We got caught out with uncharacteristic defensive mishaps in my view they came from allowing WH to set the tempo.

    The thing we'll need from Foyth and Sanchez in the coming couple of years, is to turn this early composure and ability into something even more solid i.e. Jan and Toby. We need leaders on the pitch at times and everyone to step up when a game starts going wrong, these types of young players - if they can make the step up, could be our leaders for many years.

    He looks like a real talent. But he clearly lacks experience (for example, I think there was an unnecessary foul near the corner flag). Sanchez (-------) has already played more than 100th professional games (not to mention 2 finals in continental cups) but it is just 12th professional game for Foyth tonight.

    Edit: apologise for the mistake on sanchez's age

    Sanchez is 18 months older, 21 to Foyth's 19, so not right to say they're same age. For a 19 year old with so few pro appearances Foyth looks a hell of a prospect.

    i was obviously watching a different game to you guys - or the cold got to me.

    Felt he made several needless challenges and was clumsy, lucky not to give away a penalty and composure on ball was not what it was first half against Spam

    Can see Davies, Jan and Foyth making up our CBs on Saturday. Free Dier up to play in midfield.

    Clearly talented but very young and quite inexperienced - a few fouls that just weren't needed. I think playing alongside our more experienced CBs would help him.

    All in all really pleased, looks another very good buy.

    Moving from Argentina to the UK at his age is no mean feat. Looks very talented.

    loved that moment he proactively intercepted an APOEL ball in midfield and immediately surged into the box. That's the type of smart clever defender/overall play I expect from him for years to come. He's raw in his defending, but I think he's destined to become a great. Just needs to become more comfortable which will come with expierence.

    he's only 19?! I almost forgot that!

    If Sterling had not make an appearance, is he the youngest debutant for us in UCL?

    His old manager compared him to a beckenbaur/baresi hybrid. Set the bar a bit low there I feel :DMy gut feeling is he will be another Dier alternating between DM and CB.Actually reminds me a little bit Of koscielny but potentially better.

    Needs to get a lot stronger. Premier league players would have it easy against him
