    Interesting that our two best centre backs for a long time also are or have been somewhere between accomplished and excellent full backs. The comparison doesn't end there. I really do see a bit of our Dutchmen in Foyth.

    Being able to handle a very much in form Sterling playing "out of position", at least the first time playing there for us, says a lot about his ability to defend on the ground against quick skillful players.

    Hope he's given the chance to develop.

    I think Poch clearly rates him, he should get plenty of opportunities going forward, especially if back up RB becomes an option as well.

    Said it before and I will say it again I am not at all convinced on this lad.

    To many big mistakes, got a nice touch on him but like walker peters needed a season on loan to learn adult football.

    Yep he's confidence should be shattered by now. The Internet will haunt him forever.

    I'm not sure what we should do with this guy. I think that potentially he's a decent CB but he made so many stupid decisions. Today's was the worst

    He likes the spectacular. Two pens v Wolves and a 2 minute cameo today.

    Agreed. At the moment he's too much of a liability to be able to rely on. Can play in domestic cups etc but what he did today was inexcusable

    He's got talent, but he appears to be thick as fudge.

    I’d still play him right back over Trippier.

    Very, very stupid by him.

    But he's a kid.

    I'm not quite as tinkled off about him. It's a fact of life that a young player like him, with his bravery on the ball and willingness to play it forwars, is going to make mistakes - and get sent off, too, given how shaky he is defensively.

    He is a defender he should not be shaky defensively

    Strangely it was his excellent driving run with the ball where he went past 3 players that ended up with his sending off. Loads of potential but still error prone, hopefully he'll improve with experience.

    Yeah, but you don't usually see 20-21 year old central defenders playing for top sides. They're raw, just like Foyth is.

    Not saying he should play more or anything - he's defo shaky, and we can't afford it. But his youth means he'll do stuff like this.

    Mods. One of our Argentinian players has thread name changes. Maybe Brain Fart Foyth would be appropriate.

    Lol if anyone is going to have that tag it should be Dier. I swear he has more brain farts than Walker ever did....

    We've seen so many young players make this particular error in the past. I think he will learn from it.

    I’ll keep referring people back to Sissoko and the things that were said about him on here and how it took nearly 2 full seasons of football plus coaching to get him where he is now and you lot expect a kid just to work right from the start.

    As one of you pointed out on the Sissoko thread we should support all of the players not just our favourites and realise the impact on a players confidence that negatively can cause

    Wouldn't it require said players being on this particular Interwebs forum to have an effect, which to our knowledge no one but Rohan Ricketts has ever been?
