    He’s going to be the one if any that allows Luton back into this game

    Talented lad, but he's showed his inexperience at times. Can't really blame him for that. Hopefully giving away the penalty won't affect him too badly.

    I like that Stendel recognised it and brought him off

    I thought he had a very good first 35 mins then lost his way a little bit but should feel good about himself. He also got hung out to dry with 3 or 4 terrible passes to him. Some very good overlaps too.

    He won't get there if he doesn't get any game time. It will always be a bit hit and miss with young guys coming in from the academy. You can't expect the same level as the usual starting eleven. I think he did well for his experience. The substitution was justified though as he was starting to get run over later in the game.

    Up until giving the pen away, I thought he was pretty solid and played some decent passes on to Moncur, 2nd half his naivety came out and was a bit shaky but otherwise for a lad only 3 games into his professional career he was pretty decent

    Was blowing out of his arse after twenty minutes and had his hands on his hips a lot in the second half. Thought Pinnilos would have come on at the break. Steep learning curve for him today. Great hand for him when he was subbed off, which was encouraging.

    Got no help from Moncur defensively but he can hold his head up, he helped us get 3 pts

    I agree that the young lads need experience at a competitive level in order to improve. I just felt that naivety and the fact that he kept going to ground too easily was causing us unnecessary problems. I also agree that there’s some player in there and I hope he gets better with time

    Thought he had a shocker today but he is only a young lad he had a good game by all accounts last week let's not get on his back.

    Yes he was for a couple of minutes because he’d just sprinted 80 yards up the field at full tilt, and then had to do the same back when he got dispossessed. I doubt there’s a player in the planet who wouldn’t be gasping at a 160 yard sprint.

    He’s a fit lad but inexperienced. He’ll make mistakes but he doesn’t look out of place in this team.

    He gave away a needless penalty and was poor throughout if cavare played like that on the other side people would have their pitch forks out.

    Harsh. He was very good first half hour. People around me were saying at that stage that Pinillos & Fryers would have a job on getting back in & I would’ve agreed at that stage.

    Gave away a daft pen & lost his head a bit, sure he’ll learn from it

    Just my opinion people were telling me how good he was at posh. For me he looked okay 1st half hour gave away a silly pen and then was our weak link. He is only yoing and hasn't played consistently so it's understandable. Stendal saw the weak link and made the change good call.

    You could be right, but we are not talking about Cavare ,we are talking about Williams who made mistakes but certainly did not have a shocker .

    Not sure what difference a name makes but like I said if cavare plays the exact same game the other side the pitch forks are out.

    Williams had a nightmare of a performance today. Was our weak link today and Luton exploited it.
