Megadrive Man

I said last season that he should get some games and some sub appearances this year, and was informed by someone else with God-like authority that he was years off that. Well, he isn't. When you get someone at that age with skill and pace, you can get two phases of their development - the first is just feeding off their complete lack of fear and their drive to impress; then the later phase is when they've strengthened and grown more tactically aware. But you don't keep players like that away from the action, as if they're a banana ripening slowly in a bowl. Treat them carefully but start easing them in.  He's too exciting to ignore.

Elliot looked a special player this time last year.  Until people started expecting him to be performing consistently week in week out.



Elliott looks a much better player in these bit part roles where he gets minutes and improves his all round game. He's being managed well this season.

Named in the Scotland provisional squad for the Euros. 

Clarke has named a 28 man squad so only 2 will miss out. He’s picked 4 keepers so you’d assume one of them will miss out and there’s quite a few in the squad only just back from injury so the lad has a real chance of making the final squad.

Could do with a loan move next year to get him games. Same with Clark,McConnell, Danns  and Gordon

In agreeance with this. 

Time we started really taking advantage of the loan system, worked wonders for Quansah Bradley as we’ve seen. Can only have worked wonders for Sepp, Fabio and Morton. Now it’s time to send 6-7 of these youngsters out at once. Nyoni Nallo Morisson. Have them all exposed to the mens game.

Doak is a ripe banana who needs to be eased in. I’m slightly aroused.
