Happy for him, got a nice goal and contributed to the win. Can barely remember him touching the ball other than that.

That's how I saw it, but he probably wasn't helped by Joselu who didn't hold the ball up at all.

Why is he being written off as a departure in summer? Is his contract up/refused to sign a new one?

I've seen two stiffs matches this season and the kids who really stood out were Roberts, Woodman, S Longstaff, Sorensen and Adam Wilson. Looks like we have a decent coach in Ben Dawson as well.

Would love for us to secure safety with two or three games to go so we can blood these fellas in this season. Conversely if we go down with two or three games to go we can start them all in preparation for life in the championship. Either way they need some serious game time.

Cracking finish from the lad, great to see some good lads getting chance albeit enforced but looked tidy enough.

I've liked what I've seen from him in the ressies, great finish last night. That aside though he wasn't in the game much.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

How is it great? Aye it's great we have had no investment and the squad is in a s*** state that we have to play youngsters who are never going to be premier league level. Fantastic isn't it. Ashley wins again when fans are buzzing that the only back up players we have are kids despite them never going to make the required level

Still think Longstaff is league 2 level?

Had a successful season in Lg1 so he's definitely Lg2 standard.

He's out of contract at the end of the season and he'll be 22 when he returns. Be interesting to see what we do with him

Good move for him, IMO. I will follow his progress. :thup:

Said this around the time of the Sunderland reserve game but real pity our only good attacking academy players in recent years are tiny. Didn’t see much of Campbell but this guy and Arma have loads of talent

Good luck to him. Seems such a cliche but needs a bit of time playing first team football to build up the physicality required to cope at our level. At the very least hope it’s gives him a good grounding so he has a career as a pro.

In other news my wife glanced over as I typed this and thought the subject title was ‘Cat Robots’, so there’s that.

There's a bunch of players around the same age who have been at the club for a long time but never really broke through. Sterry, Roberts, Barlasar, Longstaff (who is just now getting a game). Can't see many of them sticking around...

I live in Colchester. They play decent football for the level which is surprising considering the ground is a giant refrigerator. Never been to a colder place.

Hopefully he carves out a good league career for himself. Least he’ll always have that goal as a memory.

Our academy is quite good at producing players for other clubs.
