    Just thought I'd give you guys a heads up on one of your own. I watched Luca De La Torre this morning playing for the U18's against Arsenal who have won all their games so far. He really impressed, very good technically gives him confidence on the ball, very aware of whats going on around him and good control under pressure and makes great runs forward with the ball normally ending with a good pass.
    We really should have won the game, I'm sure they will be kicking themselves it was 2-o at half time and could have been 4. At 2-1 we should have scored hit the inside of the post ball cleared downfield player runs on and equalises.
    There are again 4-5 players that look like the could have good futures in the group, Foday Nabay & Luca really stood out but Stephen Humphries for such a big guy is quick and has a nice touch and is more mobile than Moussa. Unfortunately for us the player that came on for Arsenal at the start of the 2nd half was the stand out player. He scored 2 and set up the 3rd. He looked and played like a very strong fast18 year old but was told he was only 16, his name is Kaylen Hinds, he impressed me as much as Jose Angel Posso did for Man city last year. He played in the Capital cup this week scoring a goal on his 1st team debut for City

    If you watch the U18 goals clip on the Fulham site Luca is the No 8 , the player that dribbles into the box and hits the post just before they break and score the equaliser.
