    Winger but after that half... i'm not sure, how can you not use him upfront? Quick, good movement, great finishing with his left foot.

    I think he could play anywhere across a front three. In a 4-4-2 i would use him up front.

    Hard to know really. He's a lethal finisher but he's equally effective out wide, his dribbling and crossing is very good. Watching him run with the ball he's very reminiscent of another player formerly known as Wilson... Watching videos of Giggs at youth level there's a lot of similarities - tremendous balance and changing direction at pace. Wilson's a great prospect. Unlike many others he has end product to go with the skill.

    And still only 16. He will fill out and get stronger i would think. Great prospect.

    After Ravel, think it's a good idea not to get too carried away. Signs are good though.

    He seems of much better character than Rav.

    Brilliant news. His finishing is already better than some Prem footballers. Will be interesting to follow his development.

    I've got a tricky question: Who is a better prospect W.Keane or J.Wilson?

    Personally think Wilson is better at this age than Keane was. Both very good prospects though.

    Super goal. Were it not for lack of striking options at under 18's he'd definitely be with the 21's now.

    1st and 2nd touch absolutely brilliant. Hard to believe sometimes that he's only 17.

    Being fast tracked like Adnan was last season? Is he 18 yet? I can't remember. Class finisher.
