    This lad is out on a month long loan with Doncaster Rovers, and has started his first game with them against Swindon Town today.

    Good to see more guys going out to get first team football.

    I'd never heard of him until this pre season when he was taken on the tour. Surprising to me but admittedly I don't really follow the academy - does anyone who watches regularly see him as a standout player or was he lucky to get taken to Oz?

    Lucky. Decent, functional player, but more one that'd have made an impact ten years ago instead of now in my opinion.

    I was actually shocked that he got taken on that trip. If it was for any other reason than to let Melbourne have a look at him, it's a bit worrying tbh.

    Good luck to the lad anyhow.

    He actually seemed decent and that's especially encouraging considering he'd suffered a serious injury. How did he do at Doncaster Rovers? I'd like to see him in Melbourne or even NYCFC, as a squad player who'd fight for his place

    He played one game, started. Ended up on the bench, was sent back. I don't really rate him. Think he looks out of place in our EDS team too.

    He's a good solid defender but I wouldn't say that he stands out.

    How strange...
     
  10. Don't understand how he makes the bench over some of other EDS lads but good luck to him.
