    You know who scored loads of goals before they were 18 Rory Fallon. It's completely meaningless. Beyond meaningless. Solanke may never develop. He may get a bad injury. He would add little. And I have actually seen him play in the flesh in a professional game. He was completely anonymous. He has achieved nothing and done nothing. Youth football no one cares about. Dan Crowley is brilliant at youth football not so good when he has to play against men who just take the ball off him after he has dribbled around a bit.

    Far too polite by you. Where is the devil in you?

    My sister worked for Portsmouth once upon a time. She left in shall we say "less than friendly" circumstances.

    Years later, some Pompey fans in colours were in town, asking the best place to go for a pre match drink. Think she sent them to the Courthouse.

    We'll see.

    I hope he does move to Birmingham so we can see how he does.

    I hope he does well. I have no axe to grind. I think he's a good player if not a particularly nice human being.

    I will quite confidently say he won't score as many goals as Sam Winnall and having seen both play would say he is some distance behind Fletcher at this stage of his career though that may change if/when he develops.

    My Mum was the expert at this. She also hated turning right. She worked out a route from Barnsley to Grenoside that only involved left turns.

    He's not a nice human? How can you say that?

    How many times did you watch Fletcher at 19 or 18

    Do your research. His attitude is well known. The big I am without actually having achieved anything. hes a young kid he may well grow out of it.

    How many times have you seen Solanke play in professional football? I mean at the game not on the tele? If it's none I guess you are in no position to talk.

    Age is meaningless doing well in youth football means zip. I was a guest at Arnhem through work they felt his time was 'mixed' at best.

    Fletcher is no longer 19 so it doesn't matter what he was like then. How many times did you watch Sam Winnall play professional football when he was 19? How many times did you watch Ashley Fletcher? Ashley for example scored on his professional debut. It is impossible to do better than that. Many players perform well when they are young then achieve little or nothing. Dale Jennings had scored more goals than Solanke before he was 19. Reuben Noble Lazarus was the next big thing when he was 15 and look how that turned out. Some young players will start well and continue others won't. Solanke probably will do ok for himself eventually when he stops pocketing easy money and actually plays a bit as he has talent but at the same time he may lose that talent it happens.

    What I know is if we signed Ashley Fletcher tomorrow he would undoubtedly get straight in the team Solanke wouldn't at least not at first.

    So he's a bad person because he's entered contract negations with representatives and they are playing the long game.

    Haven't we got players that won't even go that far and enter negations with the club? Sure the owner said that in the summer.

    and you seem to think you know him so well but I bet Flo does better than you.

    Solanke "works really hard", has "got very good physique" and "a great touch on the ball". He went on to say: "He's quick but often what impresses me the most is when he looks like he’s lost the ball, he somehow manages to get out with the ball, no matter how tight the situation is or how difficult it looks

    Excellent. Roundabouts are useful. You can actually use one to turn right by turning left into it and left out of it. Magnificent invention!

    You asked me a question I gave you an answer. It's perfectly fine that you don't understand that answer.

    Just to confirm how many professional games have you seen him play? And how do you explain the fact that given Dale Jennings had scored more goals at a younger age that he is not playing currently at Real Madrid.

    I have not questioned his ability in fact on several occasions I have praised him. Though of course what professionals say in public and in private is often very different. It's called circumspection and managing a person.

    Basically you are ****ing on about someone you have never seen play and you don't like being called on it by someone who has. Again he is a talented lad. He may or may not move his career forward. I hope he does and grows as a human being.

    This is boring me now so goodnight.

    Commonly accepted that Hazard was wnak last season and as you've now noticed, Chelsea have moved away from that system so I'm not sure why you were citing it in the present tense yesterday.

    Fairly academic anyway. I know what I saw on Monday and the majority of our better attacks were down the left (most of our corners and edge of the box free kicks were won on that side for example) with AY contributing very prominently in forward positions, including his magical dribble round the outside of three defenders late on.

    We were relatively poor down the right in the first half evidenced by Hecky taking Kent off at half time. Another reason as to why it seemed strange for you to pick up on the left side.

    (Apologies to all for my excessive overlapping of threads).

    Isn't Solanke the kid who wanted 50k a week despite doing absolutely nothing to earn it yet? Get into the real world Hemsie.

    How many loan signings do Huddersfield want they will be ****ed when they all go back to their parent clubs unless of course they get promoted.
