Easily, he's a very gifted player. Fast, strong and a very skilful, direct dribbler. Obviously, early days and all that, but he's a very exciting talent.Didn't realize he was good enough for a Championship side, if he gets games for the first team that is. Good luck to you noggie
It may well be, and occasionally they are correct about a young player. But they can be equally far from the mark also.
sure he will have Matt James and David Gray around, so will have a couple of lads he knows right from the off.The kids as big a talent as we have in the Reserves/Adademy. He's a real joy to watch but what is evident is he's much to strong for that level. He can rip a defence apart and that's why inspite of playing few reserve games, going on loan for a short time is better for him.
Youtubes a shite indication of a player we know but with king, I feel it's a fair representation of his quality most weeks at that level. He just needs the luck. He has everything to be a top player, just avoid injuries and listen to the coaching staff and he has a great chance.
That said, he will be playing with lesser quality players, he will know no one and it will be new but hopefully he scores today and shows his quality.
Just copied the bits from the Match Report after King came on. Didn't have a bad game from the sound of it, hopefully this loan spell should give him some valuable experience and bring his game on nicely.Joshua King was brought on with twenty minutes of the match to play, he replaced Paul Hayes and in the process earned the accolade of being Preston's 1000th player. The Manchester United loanee keen to impress after signing on the morning of the match.
After the flurry of yellow cards it was inevitable that there would a red to follow and on 77 minutes Simon Gillett put in a wild challenge on Billy Jones for his second card of the game and was given his marching orders, sent down the tunnel to reduce the visitors to ten men.
King was given a couple of moments to show what he could do. The first a fine a run down the right which was brought to a finish when he was clipped by Martin Woods. King second chance should have produced a goal, the pacey striker was played through the centre of the pitch and couldn't quite believe his luck as he was clear through on goal, clean through. King had Brown in support but he opted to shoot and his tame effort was easily saved by Sullivan.
North End created some great chances in the dying stages of the game. Keith Treacy was played clean through right in front of goal, but Sullivan was out sharply to close down the angle and Treacy could only hit the ball at the Doncaster keeper's legs.
With 90 minutes on the clock, King showed great close control down the right channel before clipping a cross into the path of Chris Brown, the former Doncaster man failed to score against his old club when his header flash comfortably wide.
It's miles off, but no more off than Fifa, Pro Evo and the rest. Its still not close to reality even if its closer than they are. All football games tend to have dodgy player ratings and attributes.
