  1. Daniel Sturridge's cousin Prince Henry came on. Huge prospect apparently. Quite a lot of names not involved who I assume will be playing all the time in the 23s this season.
  2. Yep, he is good. But just surprised by the number of bad mistakes he made compared to Maenpaa who made about one in about 30 games, or however many he played.
  3. I have been watching back at quite a number of games of Boro's last season. Flint really did have a shocking season going by the highlights. To get 7 million for him is quite incredible. People saying he is fast!? He clearly looks very slow to me. Another thing is how on earth did Randolph get in team of the year? I think they might have conceded the least amount of goals, but he made some terrible mistakes on some goals. I think we may have had the best goalkeeper in the Championship last season in Maenpaa. Him and Henderson for me.
  4. That's the thing. I know fans can get a lot wrong. But when it seems every single one loves a player, it seems pretty likely they're doing very well. And that is in league one in a side that would be defending a lot, would be having fans criticise a lot that they see, as we know when we have been struggling. Yet they loved Taylor. I actually think him struggling in league two before the success with Southend in league one is a good thing. It shows how quickly he is developing.
  5. To be fair otib did a thorough research of Moore's progress to come to that conclusion - They saw him play badly a few times a few years back when he was about 19-20, mainly playing out of position at right back. What he has done since then is irrelevant!
  6. I said this after the last friendly and no one else seemed to agree! Pretty strong evidence that they don't even get on the pitch when they can play as many as they want. I really like Taylor AND Watkins, as they both try their hardest. But both not good enough for where we want to be imo.
  7. Interesting. That's the main thing that changes everything for a young player is what they are like when they are physically developed. Imagine Eliasson being able to cut inside and hold players off whilst trying to get a shot on goal. If that side of his game keeps developing then he could be better than I think any of us can imagine.
  8. I'm not sure he will ever be brilliant going forward from full back, as he is naturally a centre back. But if he has someone brilliant ahead of him like Eliasson, then really all he has to do is work hard, go on the overlap just as a decoy to create space. Do the basics well which he can do as he is good on the ball. And he is a good crosser like you say. Rotherham fans said he whips in a great cross.
  9. Seems like Eliasson has been on fire in preseason. Set up 2 goals today, looked superb in clips of training. His potential is ridiculous. Desperately need him to sign a new deal. He can be a huge player for us this season. It's not just his crossing ability, but his consistency at getting in those quality balls, and his ability to always get balls in - which is not easy. It looks like he has put on a bit of muscle now. And will hopefully keep developing physically. Needs to come inside and score more as he could potentially score a lot imo.
  10. Was fantastic for where we were as a club back then. We have moved on now and got far better in Webster and Kalas. Funny how many were saying Baker was our best centre back when we had Flint. I always thought Flint was better. Baker now our 4th best imo. And who knows he might even be 5th if Moore or Vyner really come on strong this season. It really shows how much we have improved.
  11. I overrated him. Only realised since we brought in Kalas and Webster how Flint is not a top championship centre back. The championship has evolved and I think centre backs ideally need more to their game now. Having said that, if a team gives Flint plenty of support and don't leave him exposed then he can be very effective. Maybe Warnock will be the perfect manager for him. Though I would have thought Pulis would have been that, and Flint just had a poor season.
  12. It always seems very late that they arrive, just before season begins.
