First thing he did when he came on was go flying into a tackle.

He'll have to look like he gives a f*** then, unlike when he came on against Leicester.

Is he a midfielder?

he's a typical "number 10".    he can't head the ball,  couldn't really tackle a dinner,  not too bothered about tracking back,  only uses his right foot to stand on!, is quick,strong and has a wand of a left peg and is absolute quality.

Not sure the Chronicle should be doing articles like today though as its just increases the hype and pressure on the lad for when he does break into the team!

Its just a shame there is a massive chance we will lose him to a much bigger club if Ashley still owns us next season..

Big chance wether Ashley owns us or not, if he's that good and a top club starts paying attention will he want to stay or go?

That is pretty much on the money folks.

He seems to be one to watch like, I am hearing that he has a very good chance of keeping Nolan out of the "behind the striker" role, he is mean tto be "magical".

Its just a shame there is a massive chance we will lose him to a much bigger club if Ashley still owns us next season..
lets be honest if they are a much bigger club he'd probably be away regardless of who is in control.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

My Slovenian is really rusty but some of the stuff I picked up:

"Back in home country, no players like Nicky Butt, so an honour to even train with him."

"Hughton is now a legend in Haris' village in Slovenia."

He also said he was chuffed that the team is top of the Premier League but was suspicious of the disappearance of the likes of Man U and Liverpool

He says;

-He's really excited at the prospect of a move to England it's a great place for a player to play

-Newcastle are a big team and he has seen them on television before and believes they can bring him on as a player

-He can't wait to meet team mates and learn from a better standard player

-He knows his debut won't be right away but he's happy to wait, he just wants to move and get settled first.

-He hopes the club can benefit from the money they gain from his transfer.

I know you see a lot of reserve and youth team games but have you ever been employed by the club as a scout? You seem pretty sharp with your appraisals.

To be fair I kinda agree with this, he did stand around a fair bit when he came on. Benefit of the doubt though, it must be hard at 17 making your debut in front of 38,000 people, especially when another youngster has just put in a really good shift like that. I really do hope the hype around him is justified.

Considering Ranger had been withdrawn and we were in the last four or so minutes, Hughtons instructions to him were probably to stay higher up the pitch and hold the ball if it was hoofed up there.

Having said that, it'll be a few first team games for him to get accustomed. This is a very physical league and he might need a little while to get used to it, especially at his very young age.

He is as of now.

Not sure if you have seen Haris play apart from the Leicester run out but that is pretty much Haris as he is now. Of course things will change with time.

He was getting yelled at in Leazes corner to bother his arse to close down their keeper, but as said if he's a typical number 10 then he won't be doing that kind of thing very often I'd imagine. He's going to be different to all the other youth we've had breaking into the first team - they usually make an impression with their commitment due to their relaitve lack of talent (let's be honest, we haven't exactly been blessed with talent coming through) but the Championship is going to be physical and he's not a small lad. If he just does simple things like closing down clearances I'm sure the rest of his game won't be hindered.

Shame if he can't head the ball, as he's fairly tall. Should work on that really. Leicester is the only time I've seen him, so can't say I know owt about the lad.

If we want a draw at the very least at Cardiff, it will be a big mistake to pitch this lad into the team alongside the likes of Ranger or an unfit Carroll. Cardiff's central defvenders will eat them for lunch. Best practice would be to give the kid game time in cup matches against lesser opposition and build up substitute appearances in games where results cannot be reversed. Once he has gained confidence in himself over a number of months, then give him a few starts, but now is not the time. The team has too much to lose.

Well said. It's all about the team. Ease the lad in, our squad is so small there'll be times he gets thrown in the deep end this year. We've got 41 games to play which means games every 3 days for large parts of the season. While we have the luxury of easing him in, do it. Cardiff away is hardly the place to throw him into the first team is it.

Totally agree. Completely insane that some people want our strikeforce on Sunday to be him & Ranger.

If it's not broke, don't fix it. Nolan's scored 2 in 3 since playing just off a striker. Would stick with him in that position, behind either Carroll if fit, or Ranger if not.
