    Meyler was my tip at start of year to breakthrough in prem in other thread, hard tackler good engine, basic enough passing,quite destructive in nature typical bruce player... bit like cattermole...will be confident enough to demand the ball alot, sunderland really struggling with injuries today but good to see him get a run..

    Likely to get booked everytime he plays

    Yes he did very well there, he had his back to the 'play' ahead of him, so to speak, when the ball came to him, and as he turned he spotted the opportunity to put Bent through and put in a great ball to put him through on goal.
    Great awareness. I think Manblue's expression "basic enough passing" is somewhat at odds with that pass, 'visionary' would have been more appropiate
    perhaps. Maybe he will turn out to be a soft tackler with no engine though

    Saw this kid playing for the U21s last season and was very impressed. Very physical player but with plenty of skill. Saw first half yesterday and he did well. Has a real chance of making it. Comes from real GAA stock, think his Dad is an inter-county manager for Wexford I think.
    Always look on the bright side of life

    He made a shuddering tackle too, lucky to stay on the pitch.

    Correct, he's John Meyler's son - former Wexford hurling boss. Played for both Cork and Wexford in his playing days

    John Meyler is recently after taking over the job as Kerry senior hurling manager.
    As an ex City player, I was delighted to see Meyler playing yesterday. .He has done well for the reserves over in Sunderland from what i know.Hopefully the first of many appearences for Sunderland for him.

    Great to hear he played yesterday. Sounds like a good all-rounder which is promising. Him and McCarthy do seem to fit the modern-midfielder role in being adept in many skills. Bodes well for the future, although he may need to go on loan to gain a bit of experience as Cana and Cattermole are well thought of at the SoL.

    Looks like he has a chance of holding his place for the FA Cup game at Barrow

    Was the lauded pass by Meyler not this one?
    from the BBC report
    'A fine through ball by Jordan Henderson sent Bent clear and Robinson was unable to stop an accurate shot from rolling into the bottom corner.'
