This seems to be the gist of most comments on his games so far. 

 

Some people saying he looks a beast and a great prospect, others saying he'll never make a footballer in a million years. My guess, as with most things, would be somewhere in the middle.

 

He's 19 and has only played a couple of senior games. Inconsistency should be expected.

Inconsistency requires some good things😂

Sorry but for me that starting lune up was not acceptable. Throwing kids under the bus against Premier League opposition.

Why can’t fit lads like Bannan, Iorfa, Lees play?

I tell you now, we would have had a good chance of winning that if we’d just mixed some seniors with the kids, but oh no, our manager would rather just have a week on the training pitch.  He’s still a poor manager in my opinion.

You will attract the wrath of Neil with comments like that.

Are we now too successful, so that premier League teams are raising their game to try and get a result against us, or take us to penalties to try and sneak through to next round?

STFU...FFS

Nah. Monk's just proven to (most of) them that they're already capable of matching Premier League opposition.

 

Exactly the kind of experience they need and should hopefully do them the world of good.

He threw nobody under a bus, gave the youngsters valuable experience. Yeah let’s also risk injuries to our main players. Dear me, one defeat to our second string and a Monk hater appears. Crawl back under your rock.

FT reflections 

 

Not a bad night all things considered

 

Palmer and Börner absolutely abysmal 

 

Odubajo moves ahead of Penney in the LWB pecking order for me (much as a prefer left footers on the left)

 

Why the hell are we playing Reach upfront?

 

Shaw the pick of the young guns. Waldock faded badly after a good start, Brennan much better in second half

 

Kachunga did. himself no favours either 

 

Wouldn't disagree with any of that.

I lose my poo about this club a lot but I'm not going to do it tonight when the young lads that have been gifted a chance have done their best. 

Agree, that's the thing. They went toe to toe with a very good, experienced team and bar a few moments of quality from them and some tired legs towards the end, competed admirably.

You think tying down our best prospects on long term deals is silly?


Well I don’t think we should rush to make any decisions.

 

I think Penney looks out of his depth and it’s way too early to make a call on the other two

I think Waldock was a bit dazed after that head clash


He faded about an hour before that head clash

Given our priorities this season, I'd rather he have a week on the training pitch than have another cup game to play, too.

 

We've treated each cup game in the same way: as an opportunity to gain match sharpness and game time for the youngsters / squad players.

 

And rightly so.

Fair point 😂 

TBH I haven't seen enough of him myself (didn't watch the game tonight) I'm just going on the comments I've seen from people on here.

 

Kids only just starting his career so I'll not pass judgement on him just yet

I don't mind that really as long as the 11 we rested turn up on Sunday ... It will p*ss me off if they don't put a good show on with over a weeks rest inbetween games.

 

Some decent performances from the youngsters ... Odubajo MOM for me and now needs to be in the frame for a WB role in the first team ... He's certainly a better option than Penney & Palmer IMO.

Young uns  did Well Impressed by Shaw , Brennan and Dele , Waldock did ok 

Oddabajo had a good game 

Borner and Palmer were shocking 

good experience for the lads 

Reach had a poor second half 

Joey did well 

not unhappy at all after that 

moaners will moan though
