Connolly, parrott, Idah, obafemi. All had cracking performances at youth level but fail to replicate that at senior level

And now Ferguson. Can we not just wait and see what happens. Talk about "fool me once...." Have we learned nothing? 

Within 24 months we'll have a pretty decent idea whether we have something special on our hands or just another also-ran who might go on to have a half decent career.

I think at this stage all we would be all more than happy with a 10 goal in a season premier league attacker.

We have oceans of good defensive options.
Just need an attacking platform which means we can be more than draw specialist

Yeah, so we should all just shut up and never speak about the potential of a young player again....

Don't forget Odubeko, who some amad├íns wanted parachuted into the first team about 5 minutes after they heard of him even though he doesn't want to play for us.
Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner.

Yes. Unless he's rocking it at premier League/championship level.

What's potential when never really tested? Youth football and professional top level football is apples and oranges.

I'm not saying we shouldn't go "Ooh...XYZ seems interesting", but any serious evaluation is utterly futile until they play at senior level. e.g. insert every young teenage Irish forward who's been bigged up over the last 36 months.

Tought this thread was about Ferguson. 
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

He's playing well. Good chance. put through and had to flick it over the goalkeeper. Not much room for error. On the roof of the net unfortunately.

The size of him for 17. Confused

Haven't seen him really but he seems to be getting regular 1st team involvement lately. Too early for a call up to have a look?

Yeah theres no rush, he only just got promoted to the 21s. Better off playing with them or the 19s in March. Both have big qualifiers coming up.

Yes, best to leave him be for now. Obviously if he broke into the Brighton first team in the league and was playing regularly you'd reconsider, but for now he's fine where he is. Hopefully he might get more minutes in the next round.
