    Dara O'Shea (D West Brom b.1999)

    Little surprised Dara O'Shea doesn't have a thread given he's played a full season already,
    Interviewed on the42 today: https://www.the42.ie/dara-oshea-2-4782019-Aug2019/
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Did well today apparently, played a good 40 minutes. He replaced Bartley who hobbled off after rolling ankle, hopefully some ligament damage, but he played on for a while so probably back shortly. Dara was only on bench as their 3rd choice centre back Hegazi was omitted due to a training ground incident related to him wanting to leave in January. All good signs for Dara

    Bit harsh to hope for a bad injury on a player even though it obviously would mean O'Shea is likely to get a shot.

    I've a huge amount of time for Dara O'Shea. Saw him first a few years ago underage (19's I think) and I was struck by his composure when on the back foot, and also when in possession. He's been extremely impressive for the 21s too. All the reports from the Exeter loan were impressive, and I've huge hopes that he'll break-through and become a mainstay for our National team. We're on the cusp of a couple of really impressive defenders coming through, and I've a feeling he's going to be the best of them.
    I think if he does get in now, he'll stay in at West Brom. Out of contract in the summer too
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Bilic is utterly effusive in his praise for Dara, has been a couple of other times I have read interviews also. Given that O'Shea is just turning 21, unless he gets a prolonged run in the team this season then the surely imminent promotion will do him no favours for 20/21.

    It will be interesting to see if himself and Collins are any further down the track this time next year. Fingers crossed.

    Hegazi returns to start, O’Shea on bench. Bartley injured. Disappointing

    Had a good game yesterday by all accounts. Calls for him to be put straight into the first team, admiration for his strong tackling, footballing intelligence and versatility and suspicions that he may have been given limited game time recently until her signed his new long term contract...

    Reasonable chance that he could be a Premier League regular at some point next season if WBA go up. Seems to be able to cover full back as well as centre back. He's a huge prospect for us, albeit we're fairly well stocked in the short term in the positions he plays.

    Love the comment about him being home-produced. They signed him when he was 16 for god's sake.

    scored his first goal for west brom at the weekend. good header. the likes of Williams, Molumby, O'Brien and Robinson were also involved



    seems to be doing well there, could certainly see either himself, Masterson or Collins move ahead of Kevin Long as 4th centre half after McCarthy has gone.

    Another clean sheet for West Brom making in 5 in 8 since coming into the side. Appears to be making the position his own, being regularly lauded for his defensive intelligence. Inevitable that he’ll move into the centre, however great experience to learn under Bilic to become our future Richard Dunne...

    20 yo, playing well right back whilst looking like a centre back and starting in the Championship under a reputable manager who was a centre back himself. It's all going very well for this lad.

    I've watched them. And yes other players stood out ahead of them. And the calls made to promote were shown to be very premature.

    Conor Ronan was very good, i thought he changed the game against Sweden when he came on, in place for the above posters mention Molumby. I thought O'Connor looked good too. Idah obviously too in the last few games.

    Which O'Connor? Lee got all the attention but Thomas is the one playing regular football at a higher level.
