TAA is bigger physically, hasnt had many injuries (especially serious ones). He also started out a winger i think (like Ryan Sessegnon, our young target at Fulham?) so i think is better suited to the premier league than Mclaughlin was and will be more likely to make it here. He still is a bit raw defensively, but he looks a smart lad and so over time will pick that up.Not trying to spoil the party - genuine qurstion. I remember reading reports that McLaughlin was clearly a cut above other players during his under 21 games. And he did create a lot of scoring chances. But he didn't make it here (due to injuries?) and got released. How would you compare / contrast McLaughlin and TAA.
We have had a long history of promising right backs in the reserves, so its wise to not count our chickens before they hatch - but i think TAA is probably our best chance of breaking that mould.
