      Buzzin for the lad. He's going to have a grin from ear to ear for months after that. What a finish it was too!

      I think it's gotten to a pretty bad stage when we're now saying we don't want our good young players to choose England over somebody else, says a lot about the England setup. With Wales he won't have the media slagging him off every 2 minutes, he'll no doubt be better looked after under the Wales setup than our current crop do with England, they don't seem to qualify for as many tournaments as England (seriously not a bash against Wales) and he's already part of the Wales setup anyway and he's obviously happy. Also, without meaning to be negative, if for whatever reason he doesn't make the step up to the level some - including myself - expect him to then at least there's a bigger chance of him sticking around in the Wales squad than with England, who change their mind every week.

      Obvious talent, good awareness and a fine touch for a young player. Thought he was the most impressive of the kids today, and clearly he has a future. He'll need to keep developing though from a technical point of view, he looks to me as if he's physically going to resemble a Peter Beardsley type of bloke (not in looks but in stature). Not going to be particularly quick or posess lots of physical power, so he's going to need to be a thinking mans footballer. Like him though, was good today I thought and a wee bit unfortunate to come off early.

      I was impressed with him yesterday and gave him MOTM. Nothing extravagant, but more simplistic in his play, yet he was able to create 3-4 good opportunities. Along with Ejaria and TAA, I have high hopes for them.

      Missed the game, but looks like he may have had a great game. Too easy for him at u23s and he is only 17? ;D.

      He was given a hard time by some no marks in and around social media who thought they would judge his whole career on the basis of the Plymouth match last week...just because he 'doesn't have speed'. I'll tell you this though - he can do some great things with the ball at his feet inside the box. Him not being a speed merchant (but by no means slow) will do him good in my opinion. Too often in the past coaches and supporters have believed that 'speed is all you need' hence the reason we were given brainless wonders like Wright Phillips, Aaron Lennon and of late Jordan Ibe and even Raheem Sterling who could run past everyone yet proceed to plonk the ball way into row z. Not having speed as a primary asset could allow greater emphasis on developing ball skills, awareness and all round intelligence.

      It'll be interesting to see if he gets moved inside in the future or stays out wide. He could be so useful inside with more touches of the ball. I'm only thinking this after seeing how impressive he was in the middle against Ipswich under-23's.

      Not his best game today which is understandable as he is not a wide man.

      I agree to a point mate but he was still one of our best players which speaks volumes I think

      Another good cameo from Ben and not looking out of place in fact was a upgrade on Coutinho.
      All good experience for the young lad.

      Only 17 too - when he builds up his strength we'll be seeing him take on players a lot more. Brushed off a bit easily at times as a result but his distribution was clever and he didn't seem unnerved.

      He did this weird thing were he hit the ball from the side of the pitch towards where a centre forward would be standing normally. And when he did it the ball moved fast and didn't just hit the first opposition player... legend has it we used to do this 'crossing' thing in days gone by.

      :lmao:

      Yep it's that plan B we've all been hearing about, stop trying to knock the defender over and just play it around him. Insightful from such a young lad, perhaps some of our older players can learn from him but I wont hold out much hope.

      Really enjoyed his cameo and when Lucas slid the ball to the left and he could run on to it I thought we might just see a goal there. There's just something about the way he carries himself that says class, just those deft little touches and close control. Looking forward to seeing him again.

      Wales at it again calling up players that clearly aren't ready for international games just so they're then ineligible for England in the future.

      Good news. We don't need our players joining up with the English farce. If it's not ridiculous media scrutiny, it's coming back with a broken leg all the fault of the England managements neanderthal methods.

      From a player perspective, If he is called up, it might indicate he and his family, along with Coleman has had a serious chat which concluded in him wanting to commit to us?

      On the flip side, we could be taking advantage of him if it happens. Maybe he is not 100% sure, but the lure of experience and a step closer to first team football is edging him to accepting?

      However, regardless of how you look at it, I feel it's wrong for us to call him up and it would be blatantly obvious why.
