    Seems like a good lad and played very well at Orient last season. Looks to have a bright future.

    Thanks there's barely any video on this kid. There's that one grainy video of him dribbling past a few defenders for Orient.

    Carroll and Luongo have a lot of potential.

    What really impressed me about Tom was that on his first loan out he had a direct impact at his loan club. He came in and really did well and had a lot of Orient fans praising his ability. He has a great eye for a pass and he ran their central midfield in a few games. It was strange though, towards the end of his loan as well as our other loanees there (Kane & M-Poku) were used off and on as opposed to the beginning of their loan when they were getting regular games. I couldnt come across a reason why this happened, but his performances didnt seem to drop all that much. It'll be interesting to see how he does out on loan, and if he makes the step up to the Championship next season. A few of the academy players nicknamed him the "new Modric" so if thats anything to go by he has a bright future if he can break through.

    He looks about 14 haha.

    Seemed like he's got his head screwed on properly, with the drinking comments and such, which is always a good sign in young players. It would be awesome if we can get some of these youth players throughto the first team.

    Bit weird that the only real video out there is a Dutch TV interview...haha

    Is it from the most recent tournament that they played in?

    Also, good to hear that he is talking about becoming stronger with his non-dominant foot.

    I was so impressed with this lad tonight. He looks like he should be in prep school but he was excellent. For such a little lad he was quite tough on the ball too! He was so committed and on the few occasions he lost the ball he worked so hard to get it back.In possession tho he was probably the best on the pitch, certainly until Niko came on. I really was impressed by him, and he was everywhere too and always wanted the ball.All out youngsters did well, but he really stood out for me

    Absolutely 100% agree, i dont like to make comparisons as i feel each player should be thought of as individual. But i remember a certain similar debut not so long ago by a scouse whos still very famous up there, to this day.

    The guy ran for everything. Apparently he was on right wing? (wasnt paying much attention to the formation other than names) he definetly looked like a composed central midfield. Like he had been playing for years! His pass to set up Kane to earn the penalty was sublime aswell, perfectly weighted with nothing but a reflex to take the chance to make the pass.

    Like I said in the match thread I project him as a deep lying play-maker, even though he wasn't to creative today. I just think he needs to get some games. He hasn't really played many competitive matches, unless you count reserve matches. Hopefully with that performance he'll get some championship sides looking at him. I mean seriously if I was a bottom half to mid table championship side how could I argue against making a bid for him. He obviously can cut it, he just needs some experience. As some have said he's pretty light but at one point during the match he held off a player quite successfully on the touchline and kept possession. He doesn't need to bulk up that much, I just think he needs to get used to the physicality.
