    He looks like he has enormous potential, and he played very well yesterday. I know people are keen to be excited over a young prospect, and I am certainly looking forward to seeing how he progresses, but I worry people’s expectations are too high. Realistically, this is the first time people have ever seen him play, and suddenly people are convinced he is capable of playing regularly at PL level. He looked great against Croatia U21, but the game was extremely open and frantic, he will inevitably have to face harsher tests if he wants to succeed with us.

    He’s got lots of desirable traits you want in a DM, his long passing is exciting and emulates the Stephens long pass/diagonal switch. He is tall, athletic, and tackles well. He is undoubtedly a great prospect - he may be ready for first team football now and we could have a star on our hands. But statements that he ‘HAS to be in our squad next year’ are jumping the gun slightly, he has not played to a particularly high level as of yet. Let’s keep watching him at U21 level, see how preseason unfolds, and then we can formulate a more accurate judgment.

      Are there highlights anywhere for those of us who don't have Sky?

      Well, he's going to have to be good because he looks like the only addition we're making.

      ...

      Can he play left back?
      You're going all in on 'monumental screw up'.
      I admire your confidence in a lack of confidence of the club, it could pay massive dividends but by Jimminy you're never going to be allowed to forget this closed season, if Mr Tony gets his way

      Agreed. And he'll have a great teacher in Stephens, but he has already played at a higher level than Dale, and looks the real deal, so it's not hard to see why everyone is so excited. As i said earlier on the thread- let's see how looks against Foden and Maddison, but the kid clearly has huge potential. Hoping we take a punt on a few of the others (GK looks great but has had a big big Serie A move).

      Watching him now in the Euro U21 championships and he is really looking very good

      Already played 3 very impressive passes that have gone behind the Croatian defence including one that was in the same movement as a wonderful sliding tackle...exciting
      He needs a season in the Championship ideally.

      Bor-ing. I've already got my Baluta tattoo and renamed all my kids Tudor.

      In the Commentry it was mentioned, Bestiktas and Galatasary were both recommended him, but we SWOOPED in first.

      Indeed.

      Some of the chant suggestions might need a rethink!
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.
