i was absolutely astounded at his performance last night, after hearing comments in all stars bar saying his touch was dreadful, he didn't out a foot wrong.

"Boetang travels well with the ball.
Lacks pace....
But move the ball quickly in transition."

Boateng moves so quickly with the ball, which is a big asset. He’s still quite raw and at 22 should have a lot of improvement in his game. If he fulfills his long-term potential he should become a championship standard player. He needs to add more goals to his game too.

I do love him though and if we make it to L1 he will be a huge player for us. His goal on Thursday was arguably the best goal seen at SJP for years. Harley’s was a superb strike but for Boateng to firstly win the ball and then run 50 yards with it, before scoring with practically an unstoppable shot was top drawer.

I loved the exchanges on the transfer deadline thread.there was a mention on deadline day that we might be signing Hiram. This was quickly dismissed as an internet rumour and ‘he’s far too good to sign for us’. Which I and perhaps many others easily accepted. So when at 5pm Hiram was added to stockley and the two WBA lads...

Similarities with the Martin Phillips goal v Fulham , mid Ninties.
Yeah, but Phillips goal was a breakaway from halfway with defenders chasing after him, whereas Boateng was running at a fully positioned defence.

I was thinking that Boateng's run had similarities to the famous run when Rob Edwards ran the length of the pitch to pull the ball back for Harley in the semi final decider at Torquay,
