Crikey O'Riley would be a good signing
Agree with all of this.O'Riley has been quality for us so far. His weight of pass, vision, touch and use of his body to sheild the ball and dribble are impressive. I do think one thing that might hold him back is his pace. He is very slow. Not sure how that would translate into a step up to a higher level as technically he is very good, we shall see a glimpse in Europe this year. In my opinion he can definitely go and join a upper half English Prem team and have stand out performances, but his pace might restrict him from the highest team also he can come off in matches absolutely gubbed, though he may just looked tired. We make heavy use of the 5 sub rule as an active tactic. Front three and att mids usually all subbed off around 60/70mins to keep the intensity up.
He's a right/central attacking mid for us. Occupies the space on the right hand just outside the box and links with his right winger and full back (who comes into central midfeild). Due to our inverted wingbacks O'Riley will sometimes find himself out very wide like a winger. He played a great cross to Giakoumakis in the Glasgow Derby on Saturday , unfortunately Giakoumakis missed it.Plays quite an advanced position doesn't he? Not a CM I would guess
Who the hell picks the music on these vids. If I was a player and my highlights were set to that shit music I'd hire a lawyer.A few stories circulating about him and United scouting him. Anyone care to share how good/bad he is as haven't seen him play as yet.
You do understand that they have to use non copyrighted music for the videos? And not only that, but they have to use ones that will stay non copyrighted forever or their channel might be taken down.Who the hell picks the music on these vids.

Also that add in-game on the sideboard that has the car driving on it messes with my mind.
I'm slow and it's exhausting. You have to run a ton without the ball to avoid getting run at or into races when the ball comes closer.In my opinion he can definitely go and join a upper half English Prem team and have stand out performances, but his pace might restrict him from the highest team also he can come off in matches absolutely gubbed, though he may just looked tired.
He's played for Denmark u21s as well. England the ages below.O'Riley was an England youth international. As well as England, he is eligible to represent Ireland, Denmark and Norway due to his mother's side of the family.
