    I may have missed it, but I had a quick browse back and didn't see a thread for him and he definitely deserves one. Sixteen for a few more weeks yet, and the start he's made to the season is brilliant.

    He struggled a tad at time last year in the u18s, though he was very, very young. He looked technically nice, but often glided about not really asserting himself/ You can tell he's better for that experience now though. He's not looked out of place in any game so far this season, and i've seen him impress in pre-season against Rhyl's first team, a bunch of giants, at u18 level, in the UEFA Youth League (u19s) and now for the EDS (u21s)...despite still being sixteen.

    Encouragingly he's developing a real end product and starting to control the games. He's arguably doing more than Garcia was at the same age, and I really rate Garcia. He's skilful, can provide the killer pass and he's adding goals to his game too. We've got a talent here who's really coming into his own. He's tall as well, and when he naturally just turns into an adult he'll out muscle most with relative ease. What a talent we have here potentially...

    I agree, looks a real natural footballer. A lot will be made of his slightly scrawny looking frame but I think that’s a bit of a diversion if your good enough your big/strong enough.

    I am trying to think of a top player that has the elegance of Patching. Perhaps he is in the Lampard mould?

    Exactly, I know of a lad with a bit of a poncey name, with a very slender frame and not very tall either, who is a belter of a player, Lionel something or other

    His name keeps popping up with good reason, a very accomplished Centre Mid by all accounts, has a lovely pass on him.

    For those that might not know, he's a local lad from Stockport and been with us since six.

    I hear he was MoM against Borussia? Sounds like a real talent. Our youth has some really exciting prospects.
