Seems the local newspaper gave every player an 8 or 9 out of 10!
He's 23 now, by all accounts a decent player - the article says "his return was eagerly anticipated". Not bad for a midfielder if true
Seems like we could have him in the squad as cover for either Cullen or Hendrick.

You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

He is versatile enough to play anywhere across the midfield. From what I have seen of him his best position might be as a holding midfielder but I might be wrong. He has had hamstring problems which have been attributed to the consequences of a box-to-box high pressure style which can take its toll. I think he is potentially good enough for the PL.

Never seen him. Is he that good? What type of midfielder is he? 6,8,10? I think I've heard he's a physical  and energetic 8.

Taylor will be a few weeks behind now in terms of match fitness and it showed tonight.

Watching it here Szmodics and Pym had a good first half.

Wouldnt be surprised if Szmodics and/or Taylor (if he has a good half) are added to the squad.

Sure, but the window is closed so he can't go to League 1 right now, the point is he could play LoI this season for a few months.

Taylor is in a different position though. Two or three injuries or call offs in midfield would get him into the senior squad, similar to last autumn.

Luca connell has played 10 championship games before he went to celtic  which celtic have pretty much stalled his development.

I think he'd be a good shout for a league 1 club

On that note, Joe Hodge is out for a month with a back injury.

Tbf to Coventry he’s had one loan which was cut short due to corona and has been injured all this year. 

The other 2 I do agree with. Can I ask who was begging for Kelly 3/4 years ago? 😂

We're in no position to turn up our noses at the likes of Taylor. He's already been the subject of Championship transfer interest, and I rather suspect that if he'd joined Peterborough from the LoI rather than the National League people on here would be falling over themselves in calling for his inclusion.


Ah the inverse of that is true as well in fairness.

Ronan, Coventry and Crowley, off the top of my head, have flattered to deceive at about 10 British clubs between them by now yet get far more attention than Irish-born lads. Then you have lads like Jason Knight and Nathan Collins coming out of nowhere and looking more suited for high level football

A few years ago MON was getting lambasted for not rolling out the red carpet for Liam Kelly, and he's currently toiling away with Oxford and looking like he's reached his level there.

Collins and Knight are clearly outstanding young footballers, and I doubt many supporters are calling for Ronan et al in preference to them.

I accept your point on Kelly who's obviously failed to live up to the initial hype. Indeed many Oxford fans appear to rate Sykes ahead of him based on what I've read recently.

Anyway, seems to be going well but we need guys playing at a higher level if I'm honest so Taylor is one for the future.
That also applies to Scully, Parrott and the likes.  Good that they can play and hopefully do well in the 3rd tier but for our senior team, we need them playing and performing at higher levels. 

 

Don’t disagree in general but the 2 positions I’d make an exception to it’s the No.10 role that Kenny seems clung to and at right midfield/right wing. Parrott who I think could be interesting in that 10 role and Scully at RW respectively. We are just so light in these positions and Hendrick is not the answer at No.10.

Taylor yes that’s the one. I can’t knock that hed be behind Knight Cullen Molumby Smallbone as far as young midfielders go if you count Cullen as youngish. I do see his potential to keep progressing and would be hopeful he will go the same way as Hourihane in the next 5/6 years driving on up the ladder.
