Don't play him against Peterborough or Barry Fry will lure him away for peanuts with a crap sell on that he will contest later !

Quoted from Hagrid


Well he plays for United and is an england international so hasnt done too bad has be


Actually I didn't say he'd done badly but has never reached his potential and he's now not even a regular at either.
He was awesome at Blackburn as a teenager.

Quoted from mariner tommy


I was there yesterday and it was a good performance all round, but Mattie Pollock was definitely MOM, he never put a foot wrong all game. To be honest all the back four were good, we played 4-3-3, Öhman, Hendrie and Gibson were very good also.
Whitehouse, Hess and Clifton weren’t troubled too much in midfield either, and Hessenthaler’s goal was a superb finish after Green had hit the crossbar. Overall very pleased with our performance.

Agree Pollock MOM. It was Rose who hit the bar however. Clifton OK defensively but he seemed unusually shy about pushing on into the final third sometimes as if ordered to stay behind Ogbu. His passing lets him down sometimes too. Still a key player this season. It may take time for Whitehouse, Ogbu and Harry to gel so that we can enjoy longer spells of possession. Who said Hess isn't a goal threat?

Very enjoyable game and my first visit to Docks Beers rounded it off nicely.

Still only 17 too, signed a pro deal early. A great prospect, potentially 👍

(He was 11 days old when we won at Anfield 😱)

Didn't realise he had signed a deal a year early.

Christ, he's going to be a beast when he's fully grown!

My biggest doubts about him are around his size and how quickly he can move when he's so thick set. Yesterday though he showed Marquis a clean pair of heels on a few occasions.

Very, very promising.

Well, he’s not quite as thick set as his old man, that’s for sure...



Marquis scored 26 in League One last season and is wanted by Sunderland for around £1m. Only a friendly, but very encouraging that he dealt with him so comfortably. For the first time in longer than I can remember, we seem to have a really promising group of youngsters on our books.

Great to see.


A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

Premier League levels of flouncing and whinging from Marquis yesterday as well. If we'd actually deliberately stuck one on him, you could understand it, but he was barely fouled.

Sadly I never saw Duncan Edwards play, so can't comment on a playing likeness but I see Mattie Pollock as a player similar to Carl Piergianni at Salford City, I saw him play several times for Boston United, an absolute powerhouse and fearless to get a strong tackle in and not affraid to put his head where it hurts.It wasn't unusual to see him finish a game with his head bandaged.He also scored a fair amount of goals for a centre back.

Marquis should have been sent off for kicking Öhman in the nuts just after being given a yellow card, £1million!? No chance if that’s the sort of attitude he carries during games
