Palace rate AWB highly, and for good reason. I don't think anyone at the club is expecting him to be the next Nathaniel Clyne though.

Maybe we had it too good then.

I value what you say. I know eff all about the academy. I can only call it how I see it. I’m not one for research of the youth team etc. I turn up in my seat every other Saturday and say what I see.

Curious as to how he is coming forward. Perhaps he can play wing as well?

I don’t wanna stick it to the kid but surely people know what I mean with a lad who ‘has it’ against someone who doesn’t? Perhaps as I say it was nerves on his debut. I really hope he can forge a career in the top 2 divisions and make a name for himself.

You're perfectly entitled to say he had a poor game if that's what you feel, I just wanted to know what it was based on - and your reasoning is fair.

'it would be boring if they won every time right?'

To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die, to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end

Considering his age, lack of experience and the opposition, I thought he did well. Defensively he was better than Van Aanholt. A few passes went astray, but I'm not sure it's fair to point out that his one cross was scuffed when even the very best players do that.

We expect a lot from our players, understandably, but I think it's important to place it in context. If it was a senior pro with lots of games I would understand, but this is a young lad who has never played a senior game - except in pre-season.

Not every player that comes through the academy is going to be like Wilf or Jonny Williams were on debut, or turn into the player that Wilf has.
Do we judge him as a youth team player making his debut, or do we judge him against our first choice full back (his competition). I thought he did OK... he got caught in possession a few times, and had the poorest pass completion rate (38%) of any player on the pitch.
I'd rather have him as back up full back than TfM though.

Bit worrying when your MOTM is a young kid making his debut!
He certainly looked promising but what does that say about the performances of the rest of the team today?

I don't think he was our man of the match.
Jimmy Mac
Tomkins
Luka
Sorloth

all played better than him.

I liked him... but I think some people are either lowering the bar because he is a youth team player or got their red n blue specs on. He should be proud... he didn't let himself or his teammates down... but there were areas to improve on (as is to be expected)

Luka, Townsend and Sørloth were the stand out players this Sunday lunchtime sponsored by Sky Sports.

I thought he did reasonably well. Shame he didn’t smash that ball up the field rather than leave it for a corner though.

Thought he was absolutely fantastic and my MOTM. If he’s that good with first game nerves, how good is this guy gonna be if he plays consistently. Hope he becomes our first choice RB in the not too distant future!
