Lewis Miley’s performances over the past two weeks have been nothing short of sensational, with the 17-year-old playing like a seasoned pro in our 4-1 win over Chelsea, 1-1 draw in Paris and 1-0 victory over Man Utd.
He received huge praise from Eddie Howe in today’s press conference but has also received plaudits Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker, Jeff Stelling and Ally McCoist, with all four hailing his displays.
Shearer calls him a “natural”, Lineker was blown away by his “stamina”, Stelling thinks he should be on the plane to Euro 2024 if he keeps up this level of performance and McCoist can’t believe his game knowledge and “remarkable” awareness for a player of his age.
Here’s what all four have had to say, starting with Shearer and Lineker’s comments on the Rest Is Football podcast:
Gary Lineker – “We have got another player in midfield who is four years younger than Tino Livramento…Lewis Miley! looks so confident, so comfortable on the ball, his pressing, I was incredibly impressed by his stamina throughout the game, he kept going. What a performance.”
Alan Shearer – “17-years-old and in the last seven days he’s had Chelsea, PSG in the Champions League and then Manchester United. He must think he is in dreamland.
“He just looks natural, he looks very comfortable. Other than looking at his baby looks, if you didn’t know who or what he was you would think he has been around for years, the way he was strutting around the pitch and closing down and the balance he had on the ball. I thought it was another huge performance from him. And again the future looks great for him.”
Stelling and McCoist on talkSPORT:
🏴 𝗝𝗲𝗳𝗳: “If he carries on the way he is now, could he be on the plane [to the Euros]?”
🔥 𝗔𝗹𝗹𝘆: “I can’t believe his game knowledge. His awareness, at 17, I find remarkable!”
Jeff Stelling & Ally McCoist are absolutely loving watching Lewis Miley at…
