Wasn’t able to attend yesterday but hearing really good words about him.

Anyone at the game share some insight on his performance?

Sorry no insight as not there, but in addition he is contracted to 2021!

So if develops into the player he could over the season at least we will not lose him at the end of it!

For the older generation, he looked and played like Duncan Edwards when he became a pro.
On yesterdays showing, if it had been someone we had signed we would have been very pleased, never looked out of place against decent opposition and along with Harry, and Rose will only get better.

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.

Rose looked good, definitely be challenging for a place up front.
Wow, some tribute for Pollock, no doubt Edwards would have captained England, and would have held the World Cup.
A note of caution, as an 18 yrs old Phil Jones was described as playing like Duncan Edwards. Never fulfilled his potential.

I am so looking forward to the season, these young players are looking full of promise.

Remember him coming on in the Exeter game and did a good job then, maybe the next Ryan Bennett

Mentioned pollock on another thread.

He looked quick and strong (he's well built for a young lad).

Every ball in the air he seems to attack. Almost like he's giving himself a yard so he can go into a header and win the ball. He does the same attacking corners so could easily score this season.

He wasn't being told what to do and positionally seemed confident. Gave us some pace along side Ohman so seemed to compliment each other.

Always looked to play the ball out or carry the ball as well. The modern centre half in the John stones mould.

Pollock did very well, but I don't think you could accuse him (or Ohman) of being quick. They were fast enough, however, against higher division opposition so that is good enough.
