The young lad Brookes

Utterly outstanding for them today. I've heard the United fans singing his praises and now I see why. He's only 19.

 

Makes you wonder, if only we had a very young, talented, upcoming forward on our books. Oh wait, we do, he's called George Hirst but he never gets a look in.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that George Hirst would have won us the game today. Christ, neymar wouldn't have won us the game today but it just shows what young players can do. All this money and spending is stopping players like Hirst getting a chance. Shame

But that is what Wednesday have always done in my time as a Weds fan.

It is what Weds fans want.

It's about balance though isn't it.

Had a good game, but hardly a world beater. We let leon flipping  clarke score two poopydoo  goals. Potentially we made them look much better than they are.

 

Lad does have promise  though.

Was very good and has a really bright future.  Made our defence look amateur, so make of that what you want.

 

we need to give the likes of George Hirst a go before we end up losing another Jamie Vardy.

He was much better than anyone we had on the pitch...

He's clearly a talent. But I think it's more of a case of him being an unknown, we had to try and work him out during the game. 

 

For example he got free from lees in the second minute. At that nervy stage Lees reacted by bringing him down/wanting to put a foot in. But he was on his right foot at this stage and it was clear that he didn't have one, nor would he have scored. We panicked and he got a free kick and they scored. It was the match in a nutshell.

I agree. Like most young decent players we'll see how good he is when teams try to stop him playing.

And there again he might have won us the game, but any young lad with potential would not get a look in under Carvalhal,just remember he was calling Joao 'Just a Boy' and he was 22yrs old at the time.

Yep, said he could cause us problems.

 

Brooks and Clarke won their individual battle hands down, and that was a big part in why they won the game.

Joao looked better when he came on. Our inability to keep our heads in the first 20 mins made people look a lot better. 

 

Case in point being Leon Clarke

Marauded fearlessly right through our midfield.  2 minutes into the match.

 

Impressive poise.  Bannan looked terrible falling all over himself against a 19 year old.
