Eze is a talent and don’t anybody think that is not the case. How far he goes remains to be seen but he needs support and encouragement from all of us. He could be a huge player for us if he progresses. I remember Les Ferdinand being regularly criticised by a groundswell of supporters, lazy, don’t trust him over a season, inconsistent etc. When he finally came of age and set the team alight I did not here anyone heating humble pie, just moved on to another target.

Young players need a supportive environment to develop - let them take the lead on creativity and what they do with decision making on the ball. Help and encourage them with decision making off the ball.

Hate to think of the amount of talent written off by our fine country over the years with coaches who have focused more on their own importance over the development of young players.

It's clear the club is serious about the strategy to develop young players. Warburton's appointment is heralded as an important part of that strategy. Ollie and SMc were supposed to be in line with the plan but, for reasons we've discussed elsewhere, they didn't work out.

It would appear Warburton's track record shows he's well suited to the task and I would expect the young player he'll be most excited to work with is indeed Eze. We have some fine young attacking prospects in BOS, Chair, Smyth and maybe Shodipo too. But Eze made 37 Championship appearances last season showing exciting glimpses of what he is capable and gaining valuable experience. He wasn't great in all those games but no 20 year old would be.

I think Warburton could well be the manager develop Eze's game, get him to believe in himself more and play with the swagger QPR fans love in a footballer. If so we may only have another season to enjoy him. Make the most of it.

Eze, Freeman, and occasionally BOS, were the only players worth watching last season from the point of view of entertainment. I'd hate to see any of them go.

Good footballers are the best to watch, of course, but there’s decent (albeit different) entertainment to be had from watching dogged performers too in the shape of Leistner and Matt Smith as well.

See didn’t make the squad in the end. Looking at the strength of it I don’t think he was ever likely to actually get into it.

It’ll be interesting to see how he develops next season

True. I think Eze is a real talent, but when you're competing with the likes of Foden, Maddison, Gibbs-White, Sessegnon and Mount for a midfield spot, it does put things in perspective.

The only Championship player in there (excluding loanees) is Konsa of Brentford. They really do have a good eye for up and coming young players.

Who knew that there was an Under 20’s tournament as well?!

I don’t know if I’d rather him have a summer off and be fresh come the pre-season?!
