Way way too early to be saying he's better than any of our first team defenders just yet. He was very good on Saturday, and he had a couple of impressive performances earlier in the season as well. It's all about how he develops and how he performs when the pressure is really on. I don't want to take anything away from his performance, but I think Chelsea were the least attacking team we have played this season. I think even Yeovil and Cambridge offered a bigger threat to our defence than Chelsea did.
There's definitely something about him. He seems to have constantly been thrown in when we have injury crisis', but he's mostly done well. That's a credit to him and his mentality. You could hardly blame a player for shitting it in a bit by being thrown in, in an away game against the best team in the league, but he looked very assured. Good to see him have the bollocks to not just get rid of the ball like we often saw Blackett do earlier in the season, but stepping into midfield, and even getting shots on target; away at Stamford Bridge! Top lad.
Would be good to see him get a Premier League loan and play week in week out. I don't think he'll get that here next season, especially as I predict we'll bring in a CB this summer as well.
