    Positive words on Lee O'Connor here. Maybe he can kick on for the second half of the season and prove a few of the doubters on here wrong.

    This thread has a few comments from earlier in the month of January which shows contentment with O'Connor at right back too.

    Not 21 until July.

    Amazing what a bit of actual information can tell you about a player’s prospects. Based on the fact he’d been dropped and this forum, I was under the impression O’Connor was on the brink of falling out of professional football.

    Then that article in the 42! It turns out he was out due to COVID, not being dropped — and gets man of the match playing in defensive midfield upon his return, and is now off to Wembley. Too funny.

    O'Connor has definitely struggled with the physical side of senior football though, and took a lot of flak from Tranmere fans earlier in the season. He also hasn't played a league game since before Christmas - while Covid may account for part of that time it won't cover the whole period, he was definitely dropped before Christmas.

    Possibly the main issue though might turn out to be that he isn't actually suited to being a right back at all - it may turn out that he's actually a sitting midfielder. Will be interesting to see if he plays more in that position from now on for Tranmere, a change like that could end up being the making of him, who knows.

    Tranmere are in the semis afaik so they're one game away from Wembley still.

    So makes it to the final. Played defensive mid last night, and was v solid from what i saw. Think he moved to right back towards end but wasn't watching at that stage. His loan has had its ups and downs, like any loan spell will, but no doubt it has been an excellent one for him. Played lots of minutes, in different positions, with a reasonably high profile club and likely to play at Wembley. Shodipo looked a constant threat for Oxford.
