    almost looks like the real site, but there aren't nearly enough "U's" for any English writeup and there is no way 'Neville Pilkington' (byline) isn't completely made up - it sounds way too perfectly English.

    Well just to be clear its not a quote from Lynden.

    And playing for the Ireland U18's is not exactly the path to becoming Wayne Rooney.

    Looks funny seeing only 3 midfielders listed in a NT roster when usually that's a packed house

    Goal:

    And the California-born striker told safc.com he was pleased to contribute with his seventh goal of the campaign as Maksymilian Stryjek saved two Ipswich spot-kicks in the shootout.

    “It was a tough game for everyone,” Gooch said. “I just got the ball, went past a couple of people, and hit it - we needed a goal and luckily it went in.

    Is he on a professional contract? Any chance he sees any first team action by the end of the season?

    Yes he is but maybe a bit too soon for the first team, he still hasn't made the step up to the under 21s yet.

    Well, I think it's safe to say Gooch is confident -- very confident in fact -- in his ability to take you off the dribble and have a go at goal. If the GIFs are anything to judge Gooch on, it looks like his success rate is pretty high. I've never seen the kid play but rumor has it that he's a pretty talented prospect. I can see why

    It's not just his goalscoring, he's also very creative too. In 18 games for the u18s this season he has scored 9, with 9 assists and also won 3 penalties (which he doesn't take).

    Well that's crap! Let the boy take the spot kicks if he's earned it -- dammit! :D

    Seriously, those are some lofty, lofty numbers. Quite impressive. Can I assume, by those numbers, that everything flows thru him offensively??? I would think if the production and growth continues there's nothing holding him back from bumping up to the U-21's.

    Everything does go through him but he could and probably should be scoring even more, still only 18 though. We have a very strong u21 team but in the second half of the season a few may either go out on loan or into first team reckoning, which should see him make the under 21 team.

    Appreciate it. That's what I suspected and that's good to hear. It sounds like Gooch will have to continue to earn his stripes in the U-18's until player movement in the U-21's allows him to move up. Not a bad thing at all considering his age. All Gooch can do is continue to impress. That should be his objective.
