Like most here I've seen very little of this lad, but I'm very impressed from the little amount I have seen. His clever movement and pace around the box remind me of Robbie. If he can keep progressing, these kind of gambles bring goals.


Its hardly much of gamble really.

He's been on the radar for over 3 years at this stage with various super performances for our underage teams. He has taken like a duck to water at adult level for brighton even before his two goals at the weekend.

Add to that, that we have really poor options in that area of the field and tbh its a no brainer picking him for the senior squad now. Tbh there is a serious arguement to be had whether you start him or not now.


Which super performances?

I'd bet my left nut you'd never heard of this guy a year ago.


I tend to do my betting with more reputable establishments to be honest as opposed to a random anonymous forum.

Anyone with half a clue about our underage set up would of known he was coming through.

Now take your left nut and nonsense comments and jog on M8.

Think that's likely. Expect Collins to start with McGoldrick potentially coming in for Swiss game. His quotes on Connolly are encouraging though and have been consistent. Two sets below. 

"I wouldn’t have put him in the squad if I felt he couldn’t do a job. I said before if someone gets in the Premier League first team and starts scoring goals, they can have a chance.

"This was all on the back of Troy Parrott and Aaron being in the U21s and doing well. But I said then if they are playing in the Premier League, he has a chance. And now Aaron has done that so he has."

"We'll be playing 4-3-3 with three up front and he could play in any of those three roles," he said. "You have to be fairly flexible and fluid when you play in those positions, you cannot play in straight lines.

"So I don't doubt that he could play in any one of them. He really has got pace and that scares most people.

"If somebody gets into the Premier League and has done what Aaron has done, well that gives me something to think about," said McCarthy.

"He has proved to be the difference in a really top league, not just the difference in a game against Armenia or Sweden in the U-21s which I have a lot of respect for, but it was not a senior men's international team or the Premier League." 

And on Collins... 

"He has scored goals wherever he has been and he's doing it now in the Championship, and doing well. He really did change the game when he came on against Bulgaria. I know it's a friendly, but his attitude was great when he came on."

I feel the same it would be big pressure on a young lad  to be making your debut and to lead the line on his own in nearly a must win game game away from home for us

Eh, where did he say it was a gamble to play him? He was talking about his movement as a forward! 
I gave the whisperer the benefit of using the word as a sounding off point, but maybe I was been generous!

But yes, of course it's about the gambles in the box that puts strikers in the best positions to receive the ball to have time and space to get a shot away. Something Robbie excelled in and young Connolly seems to have similar instincts.

He has to use him really. Mick said that he wouldn't like to disrupt the u21s squad (or words to that affect). So he has a dilemma now if he sticks to what he has said recently ... he has taken him from the u21 team and also said about players scoring in the PL would get their chance.

You didn't actually answer my question, probably because you can't.

I did know he was coming through, I didn't expect it so quickly, he's only 19.
Ultimately what we see on this forum is all senior players dropped and then just a load of random players thrown in as their replacements (not necessarily Connolly).

One minute it's Byrne, the next Crowley and whatever flash in the pan is next.


But we're not discussing Byrne, crowley etc. here. The hint is the name of the thread who we are supposed to chat about.

Connolly is clearly a different calibre of player to ones mentioned above. He was EPL2 POTY last year scoring 20ish goals for brightons second team whilst still only 18. As said already his underage record for us speaks for itself too. The toulon tournament kind of propelled him to the main stage too.

Sometimes special talents come along. In Connolly & Parrot we have potentially two. Connolly looks ready, hopefully Troy can get in minutes at spurs sooner rather than later.

LOLLOL

Ye are actually arguing the same thing! 

Anyways he has to play, I would start him...He has already done more than any other Ireland Striker in a long time aside from the 2 goals... he has got fans (not just Irish) excited by actual tangible end product in the premier league!
