Full highlights here, not too sure on the standard of the Swansea team but parrott was up against a wales u21 center back and one linked with the bundesliga
Great goals from parrott and love the way Roles attempts to lob the keeper from the half way line at 4.29 and nearly succeeds . That’s what I like about him , he’s not your standard midfielder , to even attempt something like that and nearly pull it off is crazy

Hinds looked like he was really struggling in the game highlight clips. He was at fault for the goal they scored and could have been at fault for a few others..

Parrott is outstanding and Markanday looked impressive in the highlights as well. Amazing that they're both only 17.

On a side note, anyone have news on the Roles & Tanganga situations?

Parrott was with the first team on Saturday by the way. He was out on the pitch doing a warm down with Marsh after the game.

Just thought it might be helpful for some to see that they are clearly trying to make a pathway for him.

Also as those stats @spurs9 has posted show, he’s only just making the step up to u23. I think he’ll make the bench before the season is out.

You sure that wasn’t Bowden they look very alike. Just saw some Getty pics from last night. Think he definitely hit the gym with his latest injury looks a bit more bulked up. What was the injury by the way ? Don’t wanna go overboard but it’s almost like he’s some weird mixture of all our best strikers can see bits of Kane Sheringham berbatov and Keane all in one player.

See an article yesterday saying that Leipzig are scouting Parrott and looking to move for him, it was ‘football insider’ so who knows how true it is but I thought I’d mention it

I'm pretty sure it was Parrott, but I could have been wrong.

It's not a finish you see at that level. Reminds me a bit of Kane creating space for himself at Anfield a few years back to score.

Yeah that’s the difference to Griffiths who was much more brute force. Exciting Kane will be 28 when Parrott is 19 could be a perfect age transition. Just imagine if he’s as good as Kane. Opposition fans waiting a decade for Kane to retire and then the next one comes along lol.

Parrott really does sound the real deal, good to hear the club seems to be carefully managing his rise. Don't want to lose him.

I had forgotten about that ambling oaf. Ripping it up in the French reserve league?

I think it's unrealistic to burden any young player with Kane-like expectations. There are literally hundreds of forwards who've bossed the age group sides only to come into top-level football and not shine. Fingers crossed Parrott is learning and watching Kane like a hawk, though.
