Watching a player of his age makes me feel old and I'm only 25 hahaha. He was very impressive on debut. Good luck with the rest of the career. Keep working hard and continue to back yourself.

He's a CB first and RB second apparently.

Crap.

 

Nothing makes you feel older than young guys saying THEY feel old.

 

Good grief.

Great debut Daniel    :good:

in the first half, some fancy footwork and a nice turn. super confident on the ball at such a young age.

 

a young Spiranovic?

Oozed confidence and composure.

I had my doubts, I admit - but he was fantastic. He had no problem darting in, cutting inside and looking forward - he really has eased into the "Polenz" role, an attacking minded RB.

In the first half the ball came across to him from I think mooy, warren came charging in and he just calmly let the ball roll across him and kept going upfield.

Okay I get it that you are older than the players, I'm now much older than many managers, however when the players are younger then your own children then you know you're getting on in years.

Handled ADP pretty well and surprised how quick he is, managed to catch Abbas a fair few times.

 

Well done to the kid...

Sounds like he's spent more time at CB than RB. That may explain him not bombing on as much as polenz.

 

Also 3rd youngest debut in a league history.

Very impressed with him every time he touched the ball - so much so if Spira didn't have a blinder I'd give him the MOTM.

This guy was great last night, confident , composed & skillful . Big future ahead. Now for the LB position......

In future when people question the whole 'in Popa we trust' thing, remember this move. Brings in a 16 year old for his debut, in the Sydney derby, puts him on the most talented marquee player ever to play in the league and the kid plays like a boss.

Was funny hearing Popa stating he had been training with the first team or at least lately because it's the school holidays.

 

Imagine when he gets back to school.  

 

So what did you do in the holidays Dan?

 

"Practiced practiced.  Played football and showed some Italian midget I'm not to be messed with in the Sydney Derby.  You?"

National youth development contracts?? What are they? Just NYL contracts or are they contracts being the under 21 players in our 26 man squad?
