In the 3-0 win today, Ty Browning was a half time substitute for the versatile James Perch. The loanee slotted in at right back and played a very mature job which I'm sure is what Rosler had acted him to do.
I was very inquisitive to see what the player had to offer. When I heard his name as the second half was about to resume I was very much focused when ever the ball was ever on the side of the pitch in matter.
In my view, Browning did a very mature shift in the 45 minutes he had, there were situations where he acted with great leadership and maturity, his ability to read the game I thought came in handy as he was put to the test when balls were attempted to be slot behind him on numerous occasions. The 19 year old I think has shown signs of great ability when standing up a player, he was put to the test by the front three of Matt Richie, Lewis Grabban and Ryan Fraser, whenever one of them did challenge the 19 year old he proved he could execute an well timed tackle, he didn't look nervous for his debut. His intelligence of back-heeling the ball back into play but not into danger showed he is not frightened and demonstrates how calm he is on the ball, Browning also showed glimpses he is not afraid to get forward either but may need to work on his crossing.
He had this to say the Club Website:
"I’m really happy to make my debut, it was a good test and I really enjoyed it."I didn’t expect to be involved so early on to be honest, but with James (Perch) coming off at half time it gave me the opportunity."The gaffer told me to just go out there and enjoy it which I did and it was nice that he congratulated me at full time."Browning is making the step up from Under 21 football and said he’s definitely noticed a difference."It was a big difference to Under 21s football, but I got really involved and in the end it was a good result for the team."It was a physical game, but I’d like to think I handled it well"
All in all, Ty Browning looks a smart signing from Uwe Rosler, as Nick Powell does week in week out at the other end of the pitch today, both the 19 year olds demonstrated great maturity, calmness and confidence on the ball. Even if we do have the Everton defender only for a month, I will be looking forward to seeing Browning play again.
