Not sure why he doesn’t have his own thread

This lad looks special and is going to be with the first team this season no doubt - fearless with quality on the ball

Why would a 16 year old that just got here have a thread? Before today's game I mean.

Anyway, the kid looked really promising today, but then again, I've probably said that about countless other youngsters before him. Hopefully this one is one of the few that make it big.

Because all other first team signings appear to have a thread created on the day they arrive

And this lad has actually already been playing Prem football

I don't see any reason why the lad shouldn't have a thread, he does look a decent prospect.
As dj says though it's one thing doing it in pre season and another doing it week in week out in the prem. The Echo had a good article in it the other day about all the young players that have impressed in pre season since 2012. The list included the likes of Dani Pacheco, Suso, Jordan Rossiter and even Kevin Stewart. It's easy to forget now but Pacheco was seen as the jewel in the crown of Barca's academy when he was brought to the club by Rafa in 2007, he got his chance on the pre season tour of 2012 and played really well. So many talented youngsters though stop progressing, instead of continually improving they plateau out. Hopefully this Elliot lad keeps on improving, he played well tonight that's for sure. He's got good feet which is unusual for an English CM.

He looks very confident for 16 and he's not afraid to run at players.. He looks more comfortable on the ball than some of the older acadamy players. I'd definitely hand him 15 minutes here and there to get his experience up.

He just sat his GCSEs 3 months ago. He won’t be able to sign a professional contract with us until he turns 17 in April. He played 9 mins in the League Cup and 18 PL mins between 2 games in May as Fulham were trying to convince him to stay and also boost his profile so that if he did leave the tribunal would give them a higher fee.

Yes he looks talented and confident but he is slight of frame as you’d expect from a 16 year old and he played like a school boy yesterday (head down). I don’t think you’ll see much of him this season but hopefully he’s at a level where he can train fulltime at Melwood with the first team squad and develop.

I think the majority of his football this season will be in the U23 league, EFL Trophy, UEFA Youth League (U19s Champions League) and hopefully the League Cup and FA Cup. Can’t see him getting any minutes in the PL or CL.

The media have been trying to stir up abit of trouble for the young lad already. He did a Snapchat mocking a interview with Harry Kane after the champions league final.

The joys of being young and in the limelight.
