Tim is a tall CM and can play the 6 or 8 role. Probably better at 8. A good shot from distance, and moves really well with the ball. He has a good touch and is able to pick a pass. I liked him as he had a bit of an edge, not a nasty streak, but would take a yellow card without worry. He won't be phased by playing first team football.
Last year he was WBA Academy PoY by a distance.


I said he was a decent player. I'm chuffed for him.

Needs to go out on loan to learn the game in front of a crowd

Didn't he do that today?

I can't see him being given too much game time at the Villa right now.  Gerrard was obviously checking and examining how much of an influence he could be.  A bit daft if you ask me, you need an old head beside you when making your debut at senior level.  Didn't help with a referee who was card happy.

Playing against a poor team as good as relegated was the prefect time to give him a start. He did ok, nothing more.

For an 18 year old kid making his full Premier League debut, I thought he was bloody marvellous. Quick, tough and determined.

Jeeze is he only 18? 

I thought he was okay, solid, but thats impressive given hes 18.  He demonstrated how much weve missed a player that is happy to sit and tackle.  After a loan youd hope hed be better at demanding the ball off the CBs and helping us break the press.

Depends what we do in the summer.

He seems to have leapt above Nakamba in the pecking order which is interesting considering everyone was pining for Marvellous return so perhaps he could be backup to the new DM in the summer but I think it's just a case of us having some dead rubbers and Gerrard just testing him out.

I think we'll loan him out start of next season otherwise he'll just be warming the bench and getting the odd sub cameo whereas starting 20 + games could really kick him on as we've seen with other players out on loan this season.

First half he gave the ball away a few times which a better team would've exposed but when we were sitting on the lead he did fine so that probably shows where he is currently and we're slowly bring him in which is the correct way.

Naka may still not be match-fit, so I wouldn't take it as a given that Tim has leapfrogged him. I'd keep Marv as back-up to a summer signing and get Tim loaned-out to a decent Ch'ship side like Preston whose manager had a good relationship with Gerrard.

BINGO.  Exactly how I see it.

Played well again last night although the yellow card hampered his game a little. Has played really well in both games so far.

I would not want any of our young uns any where near that Shit bag Bruce. Apart from adjusting socks and sleeves they would learn bugger all

Potentially a good move for half a season, as long as they pick him. Beale knows what he's getting and that is helpful.

Will be a few linked to QPR now that Michael Beale is the manager

A loan will be the best thing for him, get some games under his belt

I don't reckon Iroegbunam will go on loan, Gerrard clearly thinks he's ready, having used him a few times last year.
