    Now fully fit, I've seen 180 minutes of him this season and he is blossoming into the really top class footballer we all knew he was.


    Played 86 minutes today. ...and he's top of the Prem (well, almost!).

    I'll always look out for him as he gave us so many great memories. Good luck Will.

    I look out for Hughes' games too.

    In an interview (in the Sunday Times a little while ago), Hughes said
    Gary Rowett told him that he (Hughes) was "not his sort of player".

    That didn't surprise me, given how dull Rowett's teams have been.

    I have followed young Will since seeing his full debut. I won a sleeve insert from the FIFA 16 game duly signed by the lad. It has a permanent place on the wall.

    The, then, 10 year old son of a very good friend of mine, who is well known to the players had a chat with Will. Will ended by promising the lad one of his England shirts. Next home game they met and the shirt, signed, was handed over.

    The lad's mam takes him ome and away, he has all the autographs. At one away game, post match, they were waiting to get Lee Grant's autograph. They asked one player who was about to board the bus to aske Lee to come out to sign...... Lee's reply was that if he wanted it, he would have t get on the team bus. He did. He not only got Lee's autograph in his book, the entire squad signed the Rams shirt he was wearing.

    We seem to have decent folk playing for our club.

    The only thing wrong with Will is his mis-timing of tackles

    No surprise to hear that Will wasn't Rowett's sort of player. Will has far too much skill and vision to be of any use to GR.

    I wonder how he'd have fared under Lampard.
