    We(well not all inclusive) seem to have a strange conception of what youth is, and time on your side on this forum.
    Not pushed on in three years? He's progressed from League Two to playing regular football at a promotion chasing Championship club. He's sought after by other promotion chasing clubs who presumably watch him play far more often than you do.

    Oh and he's become a regular for us over that period too.

    And he was dropped by his club for not signing a new contract, nothing to do with his form or skill

    Can you imagine been told as a manager not to play a player because he hasn't signed a new contract. its outrageous

    Signs a new three year deal at Bristol City. Hopefully he can kick on further now - https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/odowda-extends-city-stay/

    I love how Paul starts with "Pointed out originally"!

    Jeez, the lad’s talented. He’s not the best we have but is far less direct / one-dimensional than others so has to be close to the team.

    He took a terrible underhit pass from Judge in the build-up to the Browne goal, kept the move alive and fed Curtis(?) with a good ball. That move could easily have broken down. He did well.

    As for time on his side, no doubt Paul had written off Stevens and McGoldrick.

    If he is going to kick on then its time now . He sort of flatters to produce but hasn’t got there yet .

    On the box tonight against Barnsley. He looks very dangerous in a central role.

    Good to hear. He's started and finished three matches in a row now, a rare enough occurrence I think. He needs to start bulking up those goals/assists numbers now.

    I am similar with Callum Robinson, who gave you such a hard on in Cardiff. Abundance of movement and good movement are distinctly separate matters Paul, as I hope you have now learned.

    Perhaps these lads are under very firm instructions to ; NOT get injured playing for Ireland from their clubs . I suppose it is up to each player to pay heed or not , to those instructions .

    He got a bit of doing on their message board actually. They also seem to be missing a couple of regulars which hopefully doesn't explain the three starts in a row.

    I thought he was dangerous looking. I'm not sure if the fans have put O'Dowda's lack of loyalty over the past year behind them yet.

    Yeah, that can't have helped.
