The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE RESULTS -

GOALKEEPERI

Joe Mur­phy – Hud­der­s­field Town I only played with him briefly at Coven­try, but even that was long enough to see how good he was. For some­one so short, he has the re­flexes of a cat.

RIGHT BACKI

Cyrus Christie – Derby County Cyrus is quite ath­letic and gets up and down the pitch all the time. He’s a good crosser of the ball. He’s do­ing very well in the Cham­pi­onship and you can see he has all the at­tributes to go as high as pos­si­ble. He’s def­i­nitely one to watch.

CEN­TRE BACKI

Sean Mor­ri­son – Cardiff City He played in the Pre­mier League and chipped in with a few goals. He’s very good in the air. When I played with him at Swin­don it was good to see some­one so young have that pres­ence on the pitch.

CEN­TRE BACKI

Remie Streete – Glas­gow Rangers (On loan from New­cas­tle United) He has got great po­ten­tial. He was on loan at Port Vale from New­cas­tle and played for us a cou­ple of times, but New­cas­tle called him back early be­cause they had a few in­juries. He is quick, ath­letic and a good reader of the game. He’s good in the air as well.

LEFT BACKI

Ryan Haynes – Coven­try City He has got a very sweet left foot and I think if he keeps his head down, like he is do­ing, then he could go very far in the game. He’s quite ath­letic as well.

RIGHTI MIDFIELDI

By­ron Moore – Port Vale Even though he is 26, I think he still has the po­ten­tial to play at a very high level. He has bags of abil­ity, you see it ev­ery day in train­ing, and he’s got a lot of games un­der his belt. He is very good tech­ni­cally and has a good foot­balling brain.

CENTRALI MIDFIELDI

Michael O’Con­nor – Port Vale I would put him on the right side of my mid­field three. He is a very tech­ni­cal player and has been ex­cel­lent for us this sea­son.

CENTRALI MIDFIELDI

Jonathan Dou­glas – Brent­ford He was like a crab. You would never think he would be mov­ing as flu­idly as he could be, be­cause if you are look­ing with the naked eye, he looks like he’s am­bling around. But for the job that he does and the com­po­sure he has on the ball, I quite ad­mire that. He’s hav­ing an ex­cel­lent sea­son with Brent­ford.

CENTRALI MIDFIELDI

John Fleck – Coven­try City John is a bril­liant player. He has great tech­ni­cal abil­ity and is very com­fort­able on the ball. He would be an as­set to any side. He’s one to keep an eye out for.

LEFT MIDFIELDI

An­thony McNamee – Un­at­tached He’s such a good crosser of the ball. I took a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from him when we played to­gether at Swin­don. He was never afraid to roll his sleeves up and work re­ally hard, and he’s a good lad, too.

STRIKERI

Char­lie Austin – Queens Park Rangers He had a slow start, then all of a sud­den he started scor­ing at Swin­don, and he’s never stopped since! Once he gets a half a yard in the box he’ll put it away. For some­one com­ing out of Non-League, you could tell then he was go­ing to go far be­cause he has nat­u­ral goal-scor­ing abil­ity. Once it’s gone past five or six games and some­one keeps scor­ing, it’s no fluke. And he’s done it in the top flight.
