    Scores a hat-trick! Fair play to the kid, has seized his chance with both hands.

    I wouldn’t hang around waiting at the bus station too long on the Monday morning if I was Doncaster...

    I think that ship might have sailed for Doncaster unless they already have something in writing from Norwich. Although possibly Norwich might still let him go there if they will wait until Pukki etc get back to fitness. You'd have to think a few Championship clubs who might pay a larger loan fee would be taking a look now though.

    He looks too good for a League 1 loan anyway.

    Was excellent today, he has everything, could genuinely be a top class striker.

    So glad to be wrong about him

    Lets keep our humble pie in the fridge for a while yet. He was great today, but he has a long way to go. Let’s wait until he’s a regular 20+ goal a season premiership striker then we can admit we got it all wrong!

    He certainly has come on leaps and bounds technically in a short space of time. And has all the raw attributes needed of pace, power and finishing. Here’s hoping he will continue to improve and get regular game time. He will be given a chance in the coming weeks, with still an option of a championship loan up to jan 31 if he doesn’t get adequate game time. Farke would really need to change the formation for Adam to get some serious game time this side of the summer, as Pukki won’t be dislodged.

    I didnt see even this in him, I didn't think he'd be near first team at this age and would end up lower down division. He still might of course but it's much more encouraging that when we seen him first

    In fairness, I think we'd all be happy with a 10 goal a season Premiership striker at the moment...even a 5 goal Premiership striker..

    It is impressive however you look at it, a hat-trick against a decent championship team chasing a play-off spot, and only 18!!!



    He looks quality, He is Norwich's youngest ever hat-trick scorer, certainly one to watch, hope he start Norwich's next Premiership game, be
    hard/foolish to leave him out surely? (next match is man u!).

    I'd not been following him at all but I note some seem to have been unimpressed with him but remember how young he is, only 18, still
    developing.

    The sky is the limit.

    Just gonna watch on MOTD day and see what they have to say about him!

    MOTD - claim that Mick said he would now have to cap him to keep him. Why even suggest there is a risk of him defecting?

    Watched MOTD there, he was fantastic.Gabby Logan said that Mick McCarthy said he’d have to cap him to ‘make sure Ireland keep hold of him’. I’m not sure what that means, the kid was born in Cork and has a Cork accent.There’s a clip of McCarthy at another match (sorry I’m not sure how to post links) where he’s singing Idah’s praises and talks about capping him.He doesn’t mention anything about doing it to ‘keep hold of him’. I don’t know if he said that at another stage today.If MOTD have misquoted him, then they’re bang out of order, if they’ve quoted him correctly, Mick would need to explain what he means.

    Born in Cork to an Irish mother and a Nigerian father, inspired by his grand dad Kevin Hayes. This lad is going nowhere

    But it’s the suggestion from MOTD that’s disturbing. To be blunt, if he was white, they wouldn’t have said it.

    Yes, note in the Southampton game Smallbone was referred to as the Irish teenager, even though he’s English born, not once in the Idah report or post match analysis was he referred to as being Irish, other than that he played in the Toulon tournament and that Mick has to cap him to keep hold of him, poor journalism

    Yeah this won't be an issue with Idah. He's Cork born and bred with a Cork mother.

    It's ignorance by the British media. I'd just ignore them.

    Wow. That's incredibly shoddy stuff from MOTD. I don't think this notion that he would defect to Nigeria was even on the radar of any Irish supporters. This is an example of what Brexit has caused. Or has this example been the cause of Brexit? Chicken and egg stuff.

    I’ve suggested to the BBC that it’s basically racism and invited them to correct the record
