    Thomas O'Connor

    Good time to start a new thread for O'Connor - I don't think he has got as much attention from us as other Southampton Academy players like Obafemi, Afolabi and Smallbone, but his loan to Gillingham is starting to look fruitful: in his fifth senior appearance, he has scored his first senior goal: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49643647

    Where is O’Connor playing for them? He has been in the position of a LB on their teamsheet, is that where he’s playing? He’s left legged so makes sense. I don’t know much about about him but I see he is noted as a defensive midfielder or a center half. Anyone have more insight?

    Saw some highlights of his first game against Bolton and he certainly played left full in what looked like a back four that day. Seemed to spend most last season centre half in the 23s and before that as youth player centre mid

    Was there ever more players at a english club than Southampton at the start of last season?

    Off the top of my head:

    Thomas O’Connor
    Aaron O’Driscoll
    Kam Ledwidge
    Seamus Keogh
    Roland Idowu
    Jonathan Afolabi
    Michael Obafemi
    Sean Brennan
    Will Smallbone
    Will Ferry

    One of the more awkward celebrations I’ve seen. He will have to work on that in case he starts getting into a habit of scoring

    Now, I know Mick McCarthy might have left him out in the cold, but might be remiss of you to forget Shane Long.

    I was more thinking of acadamites/young players rather than senior footballers. But nonetheless made no mention of that in what i wrote
