Gold singles out teenager’s Posh display

martinsamuelsen726David Gold has been quick to single out 18 year old Martin Samuelsen as on to watch following the Irons 3-3 draw at Peterborough United this afternoon (Sat).

The Norwegian teenager grabbed the third goal as the Irons took a 3-1 lead who fired into the bottom corner after a build up involving Aaron Cresswell and Diafra Sakho.

The former Manchester City academy prospect was bright all afternoon and following the game Gold tweeted: “Watch out for 18 year old Martin Samuelson, looks a player. dg ”

The game finished all square at 3-3 with boss Slaven Bilic taking the opportunity of parading a large number of Development Squad players.

Modibo Maiga also featured.

    Glad Noble had a good display,obviously fighting for his place in the team,
    That’s the good thing about having a stronger squad,no one is automatically selected unlike last year,
    I hope we start putting some of the first team in with the European players sooner than later

  8. How did Mr Miagi feature?I didn’t see the game so I am curious.

  9. Dont know,didnt see it either.Didnt get too many mentions though i dont think.

  10. Just repeating the throw away comment by Hugh at the bottom of the article,
    I did see he had a shot but I think it hit our trim traffic cone,

  11. Lol,the trim traffic cone.Pity he couldnt be arsed to be a trim traffic cone last season.There again he didnt need to be fit to get in the team last season.Maybe he should go on the no beer diet along with you bubs 😉
