As @edson said he is probably most similar to Davies. He is very mature, and takes responsibility from LB. He knows he is a senior player in our u18s and he isn't a swashbuckling LB but a very sensible one, in that he knows how to defend well, but he makes the right decision about when to go, and when he decides to go, his ability in the final third is excellent. He actually has found himself in CM or no 10 position and is the type of player that has the ability/composure to take the ball on the half-turn in these areas and link up player. Alternatively he can stay on the outside and get a ball in or do the ole Baines underlap. His close control is also good, he's no afraid to use his right food when needed either.Can anybody fill me in about Cirkin? Style/temp etc.
Any vids as I've not found much.
I'd argue he's one of the most well-rounded FBs we've had but an excellent player. So whereas I always said Brown was equally good in attack and defence and often underrated by many, I think Cirkin is a better defender and better attacker than Brown but now KWP good. As people know I was a big fan of his u16s and then he was more skillful attacker but has just developed really well.
