Middleton scores again for reserves

Recommended Posts

I see that Middleton scored a double today against Hibs. He seems to be on the score sheet most times I read about the reserves.

I know people say he is a one trick pony, running down the wing with pace, but no finish as in crossing.

What position is he playing in these reserve games that he is getting these goals?

To be fair their team had a lot of experience in it.

I know people talk about sending Middleton out on loan next year but personally I think he is better training/learning with the big boys every day and playing with the reserves until he is ready.

They were playing a lot of first team players

Bogdan, Shaw, Gauld (what a flop he has been for them), Spector, Mackie, Agyepong, Bigirimana all played 

Good win for the reserves

Don’t agree with that. He’s 19 and has clearly outgrown playing in the youth/reserve games. He isn’t going to learn anything now without pushing on and getting regular first team football.

He was a great prospect but has went the way of the likes of Feruz and Goodwillie.

He's only played 5 games and has been absolutely awful

Remember some fans on here saying we should have signed him in January. Incredible how much he has regressed as a footballer he looked brilliant when he came through the ranks

Totally agree - the only exception being if a player is way off the physical level needed to play against adults - then he’s better off in a top-tier youth side.

I could be misremembering, but I'm sure @TMB was the one that was hyping him up and wanting him to sign for us.

I remember when he first came through into Dundee utds first team, I really did think he was the best Scottish prospect I had seen in years. I didn't think he could fail and thought he had made the right move gong to Portugal where I thought his natural ability would flourish. To think he isn't good enough to get a game for hibs now is truly surprising. Its a mystery how he has stalled as a player.

Is maybe confidence. If a player go to a big team and many people are speaking about how good they are in one country and then move to different country and nobody speak of him the same way then it can break his confidence and this can affect his football. I dont know. Is what I think.

They had Emerson Hyndman during the first half of the season and he barley kicked a ball either but that might have been due to injury.  Hard to believe these guys can’t get a game with Hibs.

He deserves a few more chances in the team that's been thrown his way this season. I think he's done pretty well in the games he has started or came on as a sub, he's pretty direct and with a run of games can surely only get better
