    I don't see anyone "big him up". He played well, got MotM, and rightly deserves the plaudits
    If saying he is ' a star in the making' per OP isn't bigging him up, what is?

      When I first arrived in Australia I kept hearing comments like "Great another whinging Pom" I didn't really understand what they where on about. But some of the people commenting in this thread are just that, whining, whinging ****ing poms. So what that his debut was against Newcastle, Man City they might not be, but newsflash they are at present the 17th best team in the country. FFS people be happy about something, take positives from this, he was flipping good and he is still learning.

      Couldn’t give a shit if it’s ‘bigging him up’, he deserves it up. A lot of coaches and scouts have spotted a talent within minutes of him coming on a pitch (or even warming up - Barry Lloyd/Glenn Murray!).

      That first 45 minutes showed all you should need to know that he is going to be a player. It’s not just about his ability but his attitude on the pitch. Lots of talented players freeze out there but he was demanding the ball from and mixing it with vastly more experienced players from kick off.

      He can’t be as good as Jurgen Locadia and Florin Andone. I know that because so many people on NSC told me Graham Potter was clearly crazy to let those two leave.
      Why would you try to compare the merits of a midfielder to those of two strikers? Seems a pretty futile idea to me - like, is he a better goalkeeper than Maty? Pretty stupid comparison really, wouldn't you agree?

      Like whom?
      Well, leaving aside Andone and Locadia, who perhaps Hughton didn't fancy any more than Potter did, there's Knocky, Duffy and Bernardo for starters. I don't know if it's possible to fancy Ali J. less than Hughton did, but .............................. ...

      Anyone remember a young lad coming through in the 1970s? Everyone was raving on about this youngster bought from Burton Albion for a set of kit. He made his debut against the giants of Hereford! He didn't do too badly. Can't remember his name but he was MAGIC!
      £4000 he cost, that's a lot of kit in the 70's

      Yeh, but I'll bet he's slower than Murray now.
