So apparently another Man of the Match performance in the senior cup. He really does look like a star in the making. He has impressed me like no other player has in our youth team for the last decade (a time i have been up to date with the reserves/youth teams).
The game against Everton reserves was a perfect example of his ability. Especially one pass i loved, i don't know how many will be able to recall where he was about to cross the ball and when no one expected, slid Irwin through. The amount of times he can pick the right pass out is staggering for his age.
When you're watching a match on TV you think 'oh this pass would have been great' but not only can he do that but in fact better it. Irwin being one example. In addition, he has a sweet left foot and great footwork. He's not the quickest but my god his potential would be even more unreal if that was the case. Maybe God wanted his opponents to at least have a fair chance
But jokes aside, this guy HAS IT. He just does. I know how important it is for us to not hype this sort of stuff up and put unnecessary pressure on the youngsters but if they have it they will make it. Just ask Messi, Ronaldo etc.
I think it's clear that he will someday break into the first-team. My question is when do you think would be the right time? Because delaying it can have a bad affect too like Pacheco maybe? (even though i have some hope for him still)
