Have to say after my early prediction that he wasn't up to it. Been very impressed with his application and energy since. Wether full time football is helping him I'm not sure but it's working and credit where it's due he's proving me wrong at the moment and I'll have that all day long.

What made you predict that he ‘wasn’t up to it’?

Get a season of full time football there will be no telling how high he could go.
He improves every game.
Love watching the lad, his going to go far in the game.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

He’s a talented boy, Sousa. He played with the brother of a mate of mine who played with him at Darlo last season, and he said he was a phenomenal talent.

I do still see a rawness in him though, and I mean that in a good way - it’s his first time playing consistently at this level and I think he’s got loads of capacity to improve. I thought there were times on Saturday when he could have tried to beat his man but opted not to. Whether that’s a confidence thing or he’s been instructed to whip it into the box I don’t know, but I think we’ll see a lot more from him as the season progresses.

He’s one of a few in this squad who could go onto reach League One or above in my opinion.

Anyone know how long he's contracted for?
Have to say I'm very excited about Saturday, my first town match for a long time. Looking forward to seeing the new players, particularly Erico

Think the quote was "going to be out of his depth". However fair play to admitting you were wrong - he certainly has started the season well and long may it continue.

Seems like he's been looked at by teams higher up in the leagues over the years so he obviously had something. There is a lot of ability there that just needs consistency of first team football to develop. Another one of those players who got released as a teen and bounced around clubs as a rough diamond. Amazing what you find in lower leagues sometimes with proper scouting and due diligence.
