Me and the bro in law have been saying for a while that the only reason he isn't in Europe is he probably lacks a foot of pace. Though with the way he has developed out of sight this season it might not matter anymore. IMO could easily play as a 10 in a league like the championship.
I mean Mooy was similar a touch slow but good with the ball

I was actually thinking about the Moot comparison too but he ended up more as a vanilla central mid once he got to England. I think Brimmer has better skills that could translate better to actually being able to sustain a career over there. But you're right though that if you're skilled enough it will make up for a lack of pace.

Good comparison. How old was Mooy when he finally got starting XI time in a big league? For some weird reason, not sure if it's just Aus, but we write off young players if they aren't playing in a huge club by 25 years old. Then you end up with all the Arzani types.

Alex King being very coy with his cards. Wait for him to dish the first yellow on a pretty soft challenge.

I believe he was 26, 2 years older then Brimmer

I'm all for taking shots because you just don't know how the keeper will react but feel like Folami has wasted a few opportunities tonight that he could have either done better or given it off.
