Dylan McGlade

Recommended Posts

Just wondering, I saw Powlay posted on the Boro Youths page that Dylan wont be offered a new deal. I thought he was meant to be the next biggest thing with a host of premier league clubs wanting him, what happened?

Dylan has suffered two pretty big injuries in his two years at the club.

 

Add to that he is in the same year and position as young Jordan Jones, Dylan in my opinion hasnt really been given a fair crack of the whip. I thought due to his injuries he may recieve a 3rd year scholarship but the club dont think so.

 

Clearly has technical ability, I remember first seeing him and screaming in my head for him to move the ball quicker. Since that day he has come on quite a bit moving the ball and in full flow an exciting player to watch. Shame i have not had the chance to see more of him.

 

Hopefully he gets something sorted somewhere either as a 3rd year scholar or a professional.

 

He is also the subject of the best ever in game image ive ever taken.

I think you might be thinking about Bryn Morris as it was him that had loads of Premier league clubs after him a year or so ago.

Dylan had plenty of interest before he signed for the Boro. With him being Irish based you might not have known that though.

Oh I think I remember someone posting about a young Irish lad joining our academy a while back. From an outsiders view it seems a strange decision not to give him a deal given his apparent big potential just a few years ago.

But it is fairly common for a great looking 15 year old to have fallen by the wayside at 17.

Only a very small percentage of these players get their act back together and break back into league football.

You might have said a ridiculously small percentage and with a young guy who's had two serious injuries in two years you can see why the club does not want to provide further support. Too many of our guys have an injury problem between 17 and 22 as it is.

 

In many ways it is a kindness to not put the guy thro any further injury hit seasons

If anything the club should have supported him by giving him a 3rd year DUE to the injuries.

 

Those injuries may have set him back but he really hasnt had the oppertunities to show what he can do.

 

In recent years the club has given a player a 3rd year deal in light of 2 years of injuries. Connor Sellars being a name that comes to mind in regard to that.

 

Hopefully Dylan gets a deal somwhere and goes onto be a successful pro.

the ones in the Sunderland game i took last season.

 

I can only take images at away games due to MFC being a pain in the rear. And ive limited to a few trips here and there due to a family issue right now. So not made many U18 aways this season.

Im led to believe Dylan has been on a short trial with Hibs in scotland, hopefully he will make the trial longer and earn a deal there.

    • This is what I would want to see. More of a 3-5-2 which has worked for us at times this season. I feel like we need Howson in midfield as our midfielders are just useless and lack any leadership, he can at least make a tackle. Saville to start if we want more balance or Tav if we wanna go for it. Roberts behind the striker and just let him run at them on the counter attack, maybe him and Britt could get something going. Let Spence and Coulson offer our pace and width as wingsback.                                          Stojanovic    Spence - Fry - Moukoudi - Friend/Shotton - Coulson                          Howson - McNair - Saville/Tav                                       Roberts                                               Britt/Fletch                             Not that it matters like, don't have much hope for this game.
    • Half-way through Mad Men and just started series 5 of The Bureau, both excellent. 
    • Warnock's had a good shuffle of the pack now. That's the desperate hope that his selections will finally click and maybe lady luck will smile on us too.

    • At this point I'd usually go check out how Millwall were doing and figure out how we could beat them. But whilst Stoke wasn't exactly a masterclass, the last two games in particular have left me bereft of confidence in this side. This squad isn't built out of League One quality players and yet the lack of quality coming from players at the moment makes it look like they are. Our passing and movement is so key to the way Warnock wants us to play but I just don't think anyone is really tackling this task together right now. We see some individual quality on display, particularly from Roberts and Britt at times in the last few games, but it's just not coming together as a unit. The final ball or decision is made too late, too strong or too weak. I agree with some others that I don't think that effort is necessarily the issue... it's just quality when and where it matters. We don't have a single player in the squad right now who's capable of planting a ball on a player's noggin on a consistent basis from a dead ball, never mind when in the flow of play. Still, the team? Hopefully Spence is back... this is what comes to mind. Stojanovic Spence Fry Friend Coulson Tav Howson Saville Roberts Fletcher Britt
