    Next Breakthrough player

    Preseason always offers hope. Last year not a chance I saw Kelly, manning or long make the breakthrough and didn't think Ronan would be as involved as he was. Any ideas who might do it this season? Will Barrett follow Kelly into reading side? Will roache be a starter at Blackpool?will rice go out on loan and be a starter in the championship?will o Keefe and Hale get a chance with Birmingham?will Carroll be first choice centre half at Oxford?will Liverpool let masterson and kelleher go on loan to see if 2 of our really promising players can cut it maybe at league 1 level? Any chance grego Cox can score goals at qpr? Any chance de Boer will promote youth and Flanagan might have a chance? Stokes signed a year extension at Leeds but will he see any game time? Byrne and Duffus and charlsly surely have to go out to league 1 or 2 and play first team football?Will elbouzedi make an impact in Scotland? there are alot of attacking players in the list above and we could do with some breaking through. Any other lads stand out? Going on last season hopefully there will be some from left field

    That's a lot of questions but I'll try to make a couple of quick predictions: Masterson, Kelleher and Hale will all continue at underage, but will get more time in their respective U23 teams (same for Aaron Connolly at Brighton. Hopefully McAuley will also get a chance at U23 level). Of the Everton trio, I reckon Charsley is the most likely to get a decent loan (or possibly even break into the Everton Squad) after an excellent season in the PDL winning U23 team. Rice is also well positioned to break through as is Josh Cullen if he gets a loan to a Championship squad after a year and a half on loan at Bradford. Roache, Carroll and Elbouzedi may start to make progress at their clubs but would need to go up a couple of levels before consideration for the National Team.

    No mention of Conor O'Grady at Sheffield Wednesday? On the bench for the pre-season friendly against Alfreton and came on to score. Just signed a contract, albeit only for another year. Early days but who knows.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Dara O'Shea might be one that comes out of left field alright - here's a video of him scoring for WBA's U-18s



    Meanwhile, Southampton have taken Aaron O'Driscoll as part of a 28-man squad to a training camp in Austria: https://southamptonfc.com/news/2017-...d-announcement

    Thought O'Driscoll was a full back? He played there when he was in the academy at man City

    I think he was delivered by the doc in October, 2007.
