Before I kick-off here I am not going all out 'anti-Steve Cotterill', so please do not think this. I merely make my point based on previous...
In a potential rare 'against the grain' move a youngster 'might' have a chance of forcing his way into Steve Cotterill's 1st team plans this season?
Ryan Williams is the man, sorry young man, in question.
Whilst he is still very young and expectations of what he 'could' do for PFC need to be kept in check for the talent that the Aussie has to be catching Cotterill's eye enough for him to give a rare show of public praise for a youngster must mean that he has something about him?
Cotterill thinks Williams is 'potentially a prospect'.
He has not said that about many other youngsters previously or any of the others, more highly thought of by all accounts, here either so it is promising...
One, that Cotterill said would be, of only two kids - Lewis Stockford the other, who also seems to be catching Cotterill's eye - taken to America this offers a further 'glimmer' that he may well be part of Cotts' 1st team plans this season?
To be honest I would think it is still more likely that Williams will simply 'make up' the squad numbers to begin with this season, if he even does that, and a spell away from Fratton this season on loan could well happen but in the not too distant future perhaps he could be a 1st team squad member regularly...
I do hope so, as PFC becoming more and more self-sufficient is something we need to see more of in the future - if this starts earlier than any of us might have even contemplated seeing then what a bonus it would be!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
