      Well if he plays poorly he'll have an excuse; he's got zero league experience.

      What was Henderson's excuse?  He'd already played three league seasons before coming to us.  And he was still rubbish.

      Translating: Ejaria's already better than Henderson but if in this end this bold, attention seeking statement comes out as rubbish (again) I have a ready made excuse. In fact I didn't actually meant what I said, I just said it for effect.

      Grow up federer.

      What is it exactly that you think I said that was so "bold"?

      I said he looks very classy, I think we should start him alongside Can and Grujic if no one else comes in, and I can't wait to see how he does this season.  Is that really "bold"?! 

      You act as if I said "HE WILL WIN THE BALLON D'OR THIS SEASON."  I just said that he's better than our current midfield options of Milner and Henderson.  And that's really not saying much at all, you know that as well as I do.

      That's really the only thing you've said? Really? Seriously?

      That's why you're so clearly such an attention whore: you're backing away from the stuff you've just said and we haven't even left the same thread page. God knows what your opinions on the matter will be in six months. Whatever catches the most attention, probably.

      he'll be 19 in November, we brought in Henderson at 20 and Ejaria is already light years better than him.

      And here I ask you a very direct question: how many times have you watched Ejaria play?

      From the game I saw, this kid is class.

      And like someone just said if you are good enough u are old enough

      How old was Michael Owen when he started, Stevie??? when they made their debut.

      Not saying he is Pogba but if we don't give these youngsters their chance then he could be a Pogba whom we might be willing to part with 100 million quid to get back just because we think he is too young to play.

      Form is temporary Class is permanent, and this lad is a class player along with Woodburn.

      Hope to see more of the lad.

      Give him chance, he's just a kid trying to find his feet.
       

      Not basing on preseason games,i was talking about his games for the u-18's.He grew into his ability as it were,same with ojo.Playing at a higher level he may not get the same results on the ball but he can't let that get into his head.

      It's not just being excited about a young player though, he has to add bullshit to it by saying things like he's miles better than Henderson already, he should replace Henderson as one of the 2 mids in the starting 11 etc.

      Thing with young players is that you know. From the first touch you can tell which one is class and the ones that would grow with the game.

      Not all prospects make it to become great, but the beautiful thing about the game is for prospect to even make it to first team games in a premiership team is already an achievement, talk less of having a premier league career before we start discussion legend status.

      So yes i'm one of the few ones that get excited when I see a new prospect, its something for me to dream about, something new to follow, a new career I hope would pan out to be the next Stevie G, not one of those who believe solely in signing big names, cos every big name started small from somewhere.

      So please excuse the scouts in some of us that makes us excited when we see what we hope to be the next best thing in the game.

      That's why the game is so romantic.

      Different strokes for different folks. Not everyone likes Hendo, or Sakho, or Lallana, or Moreno, etc......

      For me personally Henderson is frustrating. I so badly want him to step up and be our next Stevie G type player but he is so inconsistent.

      What was Henderson's excuse?  He'd already played three league seasons before coming to us.  And he was still rubbish.

      It's either you have it or you don't. Ovie is improving and can do it our level, just give him time. Even Klopp was saying this!

      I am VERY excited by this kid and fancy him to break into the first team squad this season. He has been excellent in all three pre-season games so far. His touch is superb, he has got really quick feet and close ball control, he turns well and is always looking to play the ball forwards. He has also shown he has the strength to hold it up with his back to goal. I really like him, he looks like a creative player who can break the lines and make things happen. We don't have anyone like that in our current group of CMs. Can he tackle, shoot and head a ball? We'll see but I really like him.

      Bloody hell talk about over hyping give the kid a chance.

      And besides you do realise these have been meaningless friendlies, it's a world away from the pace and intensity of facing a PL player.

      It's not like the lad is reading the thread is it? What's not to get excited about, he has looked very impressive, everyone gets excited if a new signing comes in and looks the part in pre-season so I don't see why it should be any different for one of the youngsters?

      Besides, our centre-midfield is fookin shi...te so it's not wonder a few of us are getting excited when we see a player who cope offer an alternative to the industrial workmanlike performances we can expect from the incumbents in that role.

      Saw highlights of yesterday's friendly match against Huddersfield, this lad seemed to get a bit of airtime.

      Can anyone provide an objective review of his performance pending when I see the full match?

      Why am I not surprised a week has passed and federer couldn't answer a very simple question such as this? Too busy seeking attention elsewhere, this one has gone cold it seems...

      No interest dropped from my end mate he was by far our stand out player against Chelsea. He looked like he could really play a few notches higher too. I mean that in terms of his team-mates dropping to a slower pace. I think he's got the brain for it and the ability looks there to match, very exciting young player this.

      The one moment in the first half when he got away from the Chelsea midfielder and waltzed past 2 or 3 Chelsea players with excellent close footwork and control showed he can do that at a higher level.

      No drop in interest from me that's for sure, I didn't see the game but the first thing I did when I got home from work today was jump onto YouTube and type in Ejaria vs Chelsea (see below). By far the most exciting thing about our pre-season thus far. Telling that he appears to be the only Academy youngster to get a start in this one? I frickin hope that Jürgen is considering using the lad from the outset this season. I wouldn't be sending him back to the Academy to play under 21s, this kid needs to go right into the squad. Love the way he ghosts past players.

      He will need to cut out the silly drag backs and tricks when he is receiving the ball under pressure as the deepest lying midfielder as he did at one point in this game, particularly when things are more frenetic in a real game BUT he is incredibly promising and has been the standout player of our pre-season so far. I'm eager to see if the lad has a shot on him, I'd like to see him swing the boot at a couple.

      It has, I am so excited by this kid, I'm surprised he isn't getting more of a mention. If we had just signed this lad in the summer I am certain he would be getting a lot more attention
