    Elliot Anderson

    Time to try the 18 year old in the first team,he stands well above the others in the Under 21s.

    Much as we've been burnt before with big expectations of the next great striker coming through our ranks only for them to move away om loan and never return....maybe now is actually a good time to give someone like this a shot.

    There's far less pressure on a young player trying to break through because of the crowds not being there. Yeah, I know the games are still on telly and are still being reported on, etc, etc, but you've got to think it must be a lot easier to perform without the immediate pressure brought on by living out the hopes and dreams of 50 000 or so supporters right in front of them/

    Give him a shot, I say.

    Problem is Bruce never gives the kids a chance look how he treated Sorensen last season had him on the bench for a few FA Cup games yet never brought him on.

    He is a central midfielder but has goals in him,I would play him against Chelsea to see how he copes.

    Scored a great goal last night chipped the keeper from outside the box but Cabbage Heed doesn’t give young lads a chance

    Bruce, because of the lad's age probably thinks his goals are flukes.

    I wonder how he would have handled Gazza when he was ready to come through at a tender age.

    As the old saying goes, if you're good enough you're old enough. The Chelsea game is a great game to blood him.

    That goal reminded me of Alex Mathie against Sheffield Wednesday when we first got in the Prem.Lets hope his career doesn't go the same way.

    We had to wear our green and blue away kit, didn't we? His goal looked mint but came off his shin....still mint, though.

    Agreed.

    Limited chance for him under Bruce i reckon.
