Thread: COLWELL (Ruben)

  1. #1

    COLWELL (Ruben)

    Reading WOL I am sure other clubs will be looking.. I DO feel that the time he spent with Wales....training with people like BALE will have instilled a higher desire within him ...let's hope so......

    Colwill. Not having a pop but let's nip this in the bud right at the start of his career so he doesn't become another Boothroyd.

    He's got a bright future, he's a mad player to watch though. Very effective but you could hardly say he glides across the pitch he's got quite a clumsy style of play (to my untrained eye anyway)

    Saying that, I do absolutely love him

    Culwell is the best youth player weíve had since Ramsay

    Erm...It’s Rubin as well, unless the OP was on about another similar named player He’s either very lucky or knows what he doing when he goes on a bit of a run, the ball invariably sticks to him despite hitting opponents shins or the like. It’s never, or it seems like, a clean dribble.......but, up to now, it works, long may it continue.

    Yeah, i don't think that he's the brightest at times. He doesn't know what it means to hold the ball up, he turns with it at every given moment, even if there's a player stood on his heels. Does his best work in the final third facing the opposition goal, very positive in that area. Sometimes though, like a baby giraffe giving multiple traffic signals.

    If we had any real ambition for next season we would build a team around him
    Playing him in the number 10 role where he should be

    Whilst we are being fair , wasnít it Mick Mcarthy who promoted him to the seniors when he was looking like he would get released ?

    I think people are bigging him up a bit too much

    Can't we just call him Robin Coolwell and be done with it?

    Re: COLWELL (Ruben)

    There's a player there but he has a long way to go. I don't see us fighting off serious money, more chancers who would look to get him on the cheap and then loan out.

    Nice to see academy players having any sort of impact.

    Re: COLWELL (Ruben)

    Steve Morison said in his press conference (he's started doing them now, rather than the Zoom meetings) that Colwill needs to learn how to use his six foot four inches more both in terms of all round strength and heading the ball. He also said that Colwill has much more ability than he ever had and if I read him right, I think he was saying that it would be a bit of a waste to just use him as a number nine. If that's what our manager meant, then I agree with him because he has to be more of a number ten surely than a target man - albeit I agree that, with his height, he should be another aerial threat.

    Think some in this thread are being a bit hard on Colwill - he's nineteen, is probably our main creative threat, is our joint top scorer and has played a very prominent part in two of our wins (Forest and Preston), sparked a comeback from 3-0 down at Stoke and was a factor in our win last week, is there any other player in this division that could be applied to?

    Danny Gabbidon on the EJFOF podcast was very adamant that it was all Mick (for all the youngsters getting a chance) and we need to be careful of others who try to take credit.

    I cant believe he gets knocked albeit from a small portion of fans.

    I really dont think some can spot genuine ability.

    That's what I think, he looks like he has plenty of talent to me. It's his first full season in the first team, he's been playing in a pretty shit team playing pretty shit football and still managing to look a good player.

    I'm shocked when people say they think he's over hyped.

    Re: COLWELL (Ruben)

    I'm pleasantly surprised that we haven't forced him to play as a target man due to his height, and he has been able to develop his skills in the younger age groups.

    Some people are unfairly harsh on the youngsters and I don't really see why. One poor half from a teenager and there's people crying he's not good enough, never be good enough etc whereas senior players can put in a series of abject performances and people will be saying they're not being played right, manager's fault etc

    Colwill is clearly one of out best attacking outlets and is still just 19
