Very tall and very quick and good with the ball at his feet. Defending needs working on but another very good prospect signed up. Good work by the club

Is he allowed to be holding up a shirt sponsored by Shinga beer … or is he just not allowed to wear it!

Nope, we are weak at leftback. Garbutt hasn't worked out, Ruffels isn't a leftback and often looks out of position IMO.
From what I have read this kid has bags of potential but is nowhere near the first team.
I am not sure that he has been a regular in the U23s.
If you think that Ruffels is sometimes out of position how do you think a young player who apparently needs to work on his defensive play would look in the first team?

Because the young player is a left back and not a midfielder playing out of position.

Yes but the management clearly think he is nowhere near ready.
It us a huge jump from the Youth Team to the first Team. That is what the U23s is for.
Do you think that Milner plays out of position at left back for Liverpool?
I reckon Ruffels is a decent left back at league 1 evidenced by out record since he played there.

Listening to the match Michael Elechi certainly caught the eye of the Burnley commentators - they were
very impressed. He was a constant threat with the ball all night.

Remember the name : Michael Elechi !

The same James Milner who played for Leeds in the Premier League at 16 years old. We have one recognised Leftback in the squad. If the player is good enough age should not matter. Lets agree to disagree on this :) xx Merry Xmas! xx

I don't disagree at all with you if you say 'if he's good enough"
Maybe you have seen him a lot and know more than me in which case fair enough.
Merry Christmas to you as well.

As I understand it, he isn’t a left back but has previously been played at centre half and on the wing so like Ruffles is only learning his trade in his current position. One for the future but i wouldn’t want to throw him in at the deep end just yet.
