Far far too early to big him up.

 

His fitness also looked questionable.

 

That said, well done young man. There is a full back shirt with your name on it. Grab it.

His fitness will seem questionable when going from playing U23's to Brighton then Leeds suddenly.

 

He looks a unit, power and pace reminds me of our Dom. Long way to go but he has the physical attributes, time to give him a good run as we know Palmer is average for this level.

 

I have no clue why Dons would let him go though, or not resign him. Unless he didn't want to stay, which would be fair enough.

He's played 1 league game and 1 cup game. There'll come a point where we may need to protect him, but it's ridiculous to suggest that dropping him would be the way to do that!

Of course it is - he needs to play if he’s good enough (which it looks like he is). Play him, build his confidence and his first team experience. Dropping him would do neither of these but it may damage his confidence and momentum.

Pace, power and hunger. Only 2 games in but he looks a player.

I remember being impressed by the debuts of Ash Baker and Matt Penney. Sadly they faded after a few games.

This boy looks made of different stuff to me both in physicality and his positive approach to his game.

Keep it up young un, there’s nothing better for us old uns than seeing a young player suddenly blossom. 
There’s been precious few in the last decade.

They were playing in a dire team to be fair so stood out more although Baker has always looked like someone who won a game in a raffle.

It's far too early to say he will be first choice for Man City by the end of january - but it's not too early to give him due credit

 

I actually didn't think his fitness did look a bit lacking tbh - some of those lung busting runs in the 2nd half wouldn't be made by a player trying to conserve energy

 

He looks a beast - strong, mobile, quick and determined with no little ability to go with it.

 

I think he looks a different level to Baker and Penney tbh

 

But as you point out it is early days and too early to make long term judgements - but hopefully he continues kicking on

As I’ve said many times before the full-back positions are where we are particularly weak. Palmer is average and Fox isn’t much better though in all fairness he’s playing the best football of his Wednesday career at the moment though that wouldn’t be hard given his time here so far.

 

This lad has an opportunity to make his mark and hopefully will but come the summer Monk may well reshape the full-back positions and I for one wouldn’t blame him if he did.

I think when a young lad first gets in the first team and games they are full of energy, confidence and have a no fear attitude. Given quality it could be something really exciting 

 

if the teams performing and they continue to perform I say play them if your good enough your old enough 

 

if we see a drop in his performance by all means drop him like ways if the team go through a bad patch protect the lad and drop him 

 

dross over played our youth and excluded out experience pros and results and performances kept dropping in not sure if all those kids will recover from his poor management despite him given them the chance 

 

we want iorfa as centre back 

 

we don’t have another fit right back 

 

urhoghide has had two good games against very good opposition and seems buzzing 

 

I’d say keep playing him

 

well done big lad make it your own 

 

I’m hoping lads going to get on end of a set piece in the next couple of games and send us all into a frenzy 

 

iorfa part two?

He looks a real find. The trick now is managing his development correctly. I heard an interview with Michael Owen who said that he thought that he and some other players that showed real potential when young, suffered injury later on their careers as a consequence.
