I've never seen any youngster come into the first team and have an immediate impact like him. Jones was close and Dunn took time. Duff was immense. He never looked fazed playing on either wing, even played off the top too at times when we had injuries and did a good job. The lad was fearless and scared the fuck out of full backs. He always took them on. For years I've been screaming at our wingers to take them on.
The team we had with Duff, Dunn, Tugay, Jansen & Cole was just awesome. It's a pity that Duff got injured a bit too often and Jansen had that accident in Rome. He would've been a star if not for that. He was never the same after that. Such a shame.
