I've only seen him play once (as a sub last year in Europe, I think) and the thing that stuck with me was his pace, he was really quick both with and without the ball, so hopefully as you mention he'll get a run on the wing. Keep us posted
I went to the game today, and he had a really good game - as did the full team really. The usual right back went off injured midweek so Ryan may well get a prolonged run in the side now, which can only be a good thing.
Their Carling Cup game at Anfield is on Sky on Tuesday so hopefully we will get to see him then.
