Derby County may be a club with a lot of problems, but they have so few players that if you are half decent you'll get plenty of game time.

Anyone see the game, and how he played?

I was watching and he made his preseence felt right when he came on with some bursting runs.
Faded out nearer the end but his pace is eye-watering.
They had him on the left-wing and then when attacking a set-piece, deploy him as the last man as he can chase down anyone.

I think he'lll get plenty of games this season.

Banker for the 21's squad in a few weeks.

He can play left wing too? So he can probably cover all positions on both flanks?

Rooney on Ebosele: "It would criminal, in my opinion, to use his skill set at right back. He needs a lot of work. And we're doing a lot of work with him. If we get it right, he'll be a very good player for us."

Fair assessment, I think. Rooney might know little or nothing about anything other than football but that is his specialist subject and he is probably right about Festy. And Knight, who looks destined for the Premiership and a long international career with Ireland.

Mixed feelings about this. A big, fast right footed lad playing LW is always going to cause trouble for a right footed right back and can be very effective. But will it be best for his development? Not sure. As long as he’s getting game time it will be something

Just love this guy.
And I'd like to see Derby make a fist of doing OK this seeason (despite the major issues at the club) and Rooney sticks around as he's a great asseet for our young players to have.

Knight coming back fit wil be a nice boost for them.

my thinking with Ebosele is he can be a top class full back/wing back especially a modern game full back. I dont know can he be a top class winger. He has some turn of pace.

Impressed with Rooney he really seems to have a good eye for developing players.

Festy Ebosele 8

Was the pick of Derby's players when the team struggled in the opening half an hour and continued to catch the eye with his strong surges from right back. The fans thoroughly enjoyed his all-action performance.

Watched the highlights. I see exactly the hype about him pace is incredible. 

Rooney makes a very good point about him having the attributes to play on the wing but not entirely unlike Omar Richards at Reading getting a big transfer to Bayern this summer I could see big clubs looking at Ebosele thinking “god we can make a top class modern attacking full back out of him”. 

Not to overhype and I hope he stays at Derby and just gets plenty gametime for the moment/this season. Rooney/Derby have been very good to Ireland the last year.

Could be Wexford's next representative in the Ireland senior team.

Kevin Doyle was the last.

I can't think of any others off the top of my head.

There's a good mix of players from all over the country in recent squads, long may it continue.

Great to see isn’t it Sheer volume of young players that played the weekend was positive too. Championship clubs being pretty cash strapped is going to really benefit us I think in the next 3/4 years as regards getting all these lads gametime at such a decent level. 

Bournemouth Cardiff and Derby really showcased that over the weekend.

Derby fans are really singing his praises on twitter. Some people saying he is the most exciting player they've seen come through at Derby for years, others comparing him to Adama Traore in how he plays.

Derby may struggle this season but it's almost set up to be a perfect breakthrough season for Festy, one game in and he has already impressed, fans and manager both seem to like him, plus due to Derby's financial situation they are likely to be giving youth a big chance this season.

Lets hope he can stay fit and get a run of games in.

We have had f**king brutal luck when it comes to breakthrough players getting injured etc. just as they start forcing their way into plans.
