Very happy with last nights performance from the whole team but I have to say I thought Baptiste had a great debut in that central midfield never looked out of place for a young kid being in there & I know it’s early days but he already looks an improvement on Ruffels in that position
I would agree. He also showed a confidence in his own ability, on one occasion in the second half taking the ball on an extended dribble in midfield to clear up.
Agree, thought it was a good solid debut - he suprisingly won a few balls in the air as well against bigger players. Coventry were pretty poor but he acquitted himself well.
Was one of the stand out players in pre-season too. Reminded me of Kante last night with the shift he put in. Seemed to be everywhere at once, constantly hassling and breaking up play, playing the easy passes to keep us in possession. Impressed.
Agee whole heartedly with Baptiste comments. Excellent performance. Baptiste, Whyte and Browne had very encouraging games and didn’t realise until after the game that was Coventry’s first team so made their performances even more commendable. But we’ll done the whole team.
So,so similar to a Johny A goal at the Victoria Ground, Stoke. Same Cup, one all nearing full time. Cuts in from the left, sidesteps a couple of defenders, onto his right.... and straight into the top right hand corner. Absolutely silenced the crowd. Not sure of the year..somebody please help me. What a striker he was.....matchless.
Hope he's not one of the two that are being farmed out on loan!
I'm expecting Raglan and Long to both be loans with option to go permanent in January.
Stevens will probably stay to play the U23 games now they've qualified for group stage (though still cannot believe he has never actually played for the first team yet)
With the international call up (U21) of a couple of first teamers ( who will miss the live on murdoch sport game on pay a subscription to watch TV) ... it may be woth hanging on to Sam Long as cover in a few positions as other players may be moved position to cover the International call up gaps?

there again if Faz, KR or Derry have taken a disliking of Sam, he wont be here for err, Long !:unsure:
Wow.How good has he been this season.
I can't quite believe that he has sneaked through our Youth Team and is that good.
I went to see the U23 first half v Brentford and wondered who our best player was in central midfield.
Be is a little lucky in so far as KR has proved to be excellent in bringing young players through and he has shown a lot if confidence I Baptiste.
With him, Whyte and Norman we have so.e top young players.
Unbelievably good today. First time I’ve seen him play in person. The way he drives forward with the ball is very impressive. Three or four occasions today where he beat at least two defenders and made something happen.
Only time I have seen him so far is the Leeds friendly, didn’t know who he was when he came on but he stood out straight away for me, seemed to have pace, power and the ability to drive at teams, so not surprised he is making an impact.
And we need to keep hold of our promising youngsters, build a team to win this league not to sell on for a profit, promotion comes first.
