What is IH's history with developing young players ?  Does he have the coaching ability to make them better players ?  

I love to see young players coming through the ranks. We have a lot of decent players here who have the potential to be very good with the correct coaching, Clifton being a very good example.  It's always a shame to see them leave, but if they comand a decent transfer fee its vital for the sustainability of clubs like GTFC.

Bolland and Buckley often pick him out as one of our better performers he's doing a great job at just 21

I would love to see the improvement, but his passing has been his weak spot ever since jolley gave him his chance. I have just got a nagging worry that Holloway would know of several midfielders who tick more boxes than Clifton. On a more positive note it seemed that he n Hess both seemed to try and get into the box a lot more yesterday than in previous games

Great energy, good engine, superb attitude, physical, strong and has decent technique at this level. Asked to do too many jobs for his years in the game and our coaching staff now have an obligation to find the right role for him to flourish and ensure one of our own gets the input he deserves.

Still learning his trade being a utility player needs to wait till later.

PS like Max, Harry will continue to improve because the lad gives his best.

Ollie is well known for being passionate about bringing academy graduates through the ranks and developing them.

Quite possibly Harry's best game for us yesterday. He failed to kick on and improve on his initial performances under Jolley. Hopefully under a better manager he can start to fulfil his potential.

Also, Waterfall might end up seriously regretting his red card yesterday. If Pollock performs like that in his next 3 games then Waterfall will struggle to get back into the team when his suspension is over.

I agree totally, he is technically weak and head down when he gets the ball so he can be caught in possession or have to make a not very clever hurrried square or back pass. To a big extent he makes up for this with his enthusiasm, running and discipline in different positions. Every team needs a water carrier and Clifton could be that player with some work on his awareness and distribution.
