    Afolabi’s goal at 10:30 on this amateur video. Nice finish. The wee lad videoing is pretty entertaining

    He's playing alongside a very highly eared young Scottish striker at Dunfermline, Kevin Nisbet. Would be good to see them strike up a successful partnership from now until the end of the season.

    Doesn't seem to be impressing the Pars fans so far going by their forum. You'd still hope the loan will be beneficial for him though, certainly better than playing youth football with Celtic.

    Yeah definitely - I mean, he's obviously not the finished product yet, having only turned 20 and just made the step up to senior football. So even if he isn't completely impressing Dunfermline supporters, two goals in his first five games is a decent return - let's hope he continues to improve

    Could be worse - Lee O'Connor was an unused sub for Partick Thistle at the weekend.

    Yes definitely, where there was a lot of talk around toulon tournaments and prospects coming through, but as we review the year in May, what can really be said? Couple of lads holding their own in mid-table championship teams?

    Idah (19) - league and cup game time and goals
    Obafemi (19) - regular game time for premier league team and goals
    Molumby (20) - breakthrough and top performances
    Knight (19) - breakthrough, goals and top performances
    O'Shea (21) - breakthrough and being praised by his manager
    Masterson (21) - regular game time
    Kilkenny (20) - senior appearances for Premier League team

    To be fair I don't think anyone was realistically suggesting much more than that by now given the ages of the players involved.

    Overall it has been a very decent season for young Irish players in the top three divisions in England. The big disappointment has been around the three lads that moved to Celtic - I'm pretty sure that if you had told Connell that he wouldn't have played for the Celtic first team yet and told O'Connor and Afolabi that they'd the only football they'd be playing was at the equivalent of the league of Ireland first division they wouldn't have gone there. Unfortunately they did and the damage that has been done to their careers as a result is difficult to measure.

    All between 18 and 21 and at clubs in the ultra-competitive championship and Premier League. Given how barren the last couple of years have been for our young players at these levels then some optimism would be no harm.

    Well thats just nonsense. We've had three teenage strikers make their premier league debuts this season. Who knows if they will all go on and develop how we would hope, but thats a decent start.
