Tearing Man City under 23s inside and out tonight. This kid looks special 

Watched him the other day on YouTube on a live u23s match and he stuck out miles. Really excited by him.

If he doesn’t get a run out soon there must be questions. We need to give him a taste and not let his time just run by in the reserves.

If he was at Chelsea under Lampard he would get his opportunity, especially if the team was lacking in goals like ours.

Surely you're not crediting Lampard for playing kids when it's circumstances that are dictating that? Kind of like Silva throwing in Holgate and Davies due to injuries ;)

mods please move this to general everton now, he's all grown up :)

 

i thought he did fine on his debut.  he could have worked a little harder at his pressing but he had a couple decent give and go's with digne, had that one nice run and then just overshot the pass a little, but you can see the talent is there.  i'm sure he was nervous as hell too.  i'd like to see more of him.

Yep, agree with @markjazzbassist and @Aidan

Nerves clearly at play.  Work rate/pressing was likely playing it safe and maintaining position - although the pressing was pretty light on from the whole team.

Holgate & DCL are perfect examples of what 1st team game time can do for player development.  Both were written off by plenty early on. 

Hope Gordon gets plenty more minutes this year, before a full season loan next year.  Skills and nous are there, needs game time and confidence.

Ok today all things considered. Nothing more, nothing less.

We were much better with Bernard on the pitch. Let's be honest this lad did nothing of any note.

These. 

He is bigger than I thought which is good. He has no left foot judged by that one shot but he looks like he can play. He did his defensive work well enough too. 

I'd have liked to have seen him on the right instead of Walcott. The left side of our team is about creativity and the overlap whereas the right is about attacking and being more direct.

He was scared to take a risk today. He's got ability but mentally wasnt prepared to do what he normally does in the u23s. Next time I want to see him play with more creativity. That aside showed a couple of nice touches. 

Yeah he came out of his shell in the last ten minutes and I thought he was hiding a little bit but that’s understandable. He’s used to training with these lads not playing  against first team players at full pelt. The more he plays the better he will become. I’d take him over Omar every game.
