He was abit quiet 2nd half but he put some good balls in that if pope had been on he probably would have got on the end off.

Yeah I imagine this didn't go un-noticed by a fair few people.

If the lone forward is holding the ball up or doing other stuff that takes him away from goal, then the ball gets worked to the winger, you're relying on either the opposite winger or one of the midfield runners to get on the end of the cross. None of these players you can say are that strong in the air.

Had a decent debut. Don’t understand why some have been a bit hard on him after today. He showed some good things and also some things he needs to improve on too. He’s got a good delivery and almost scored. I think he needs to learn what runs to make and also to mix up his tricks when going at a full back, but they’re minor gripes in a promising showing. Let’s also not forget that he’s been mainly a centre midfielder I think in his career.

Me neither. I thought he played well. I thought he was very direct but also joined in the play in the penalty box. Second half he had two men on him at times if you notice, but still always looked to get the ball in, plus obviously first start fitness will be an issue.

It's early days still but he has done really well and adapted far better than a lot of young players do. 

I'm delighted for him.

His does seem able to be able to pick out a pass and looks a bright prospect. 

A ray of sunshine in these frustrating times.

I’ve been impressed with him. Just needs to build up his fitness, but his willingness to run at his man and, on the vast majority of occasions, actually deliver some end product, are the things that have really stood out. In the side on merit and the thought of having Monty behind him at LB is quite an interesting one.
