A very exciting talent. Looking forward to seeing him getting some game time soon hopefully in the League Cup (no idea who sponsors it now).

Needs to work on his goal celebrations ... maybe a head over heels or a cartwheel or something.

There is no doubt in my mind he's going to be a top player - we just need to make sure we integrate him into the first team and don't leave him frustrated and stagnating on the sidelines. Yes he's 17, but he's good enough. He needs to play.

I predict he will play for the Irish senior team before he plays for the Spurs senior team (in a competitive match)

Whens the next senior Ireland game? I reckon he'll play a part in that, for sure.

That's a big shout when he's competing against Shane Long, Hogan and Jon Walters for Ireland, and Harry Kane, Son, Lucas Moura for Spurs.

Judging by the strikers currently in Ireland first team, he should be in now.

Is there any potential, seeing as Harry will be our target man for a good while yet, for Troy to play as a second striker a la Dele at his best who could also slot in for Kane when needs be? That way, he gets the minutes to develop, we have another strong AM option and if he does need to lead the line he’s not rusty/ is in tune with the rest of the attack. Could also give Dele a good push to kick on.

He's fucking huge for 17. Not just in height, but he seems to have ridiculous muscle growth for his age. Certainly better built than Kane at 17/18. I don't think many CB's will be bullying him when he emerges in to the PL.

Can definitely play as a 10. He’s usually on set pieces has great technique. Played 10 in these last 2 games.

I'm sure he could get in the squad for an early round cup game. That said ireland should just put him in straight away if they don't have any one really above him in the pecking order.
