Even Keller did a little stint at Fulham. Not bad only one error.

Would love for De La Torre to get 15-20 matches this year and then become a full time starter next year. Then in 2018 perhaps he can move up to the big leagues if he looks ready

Always impresses me with his ability to read the game whenever I see him.

And EJ although they didn't get the best out of him.

Yeah, was gonna mention him as well. Then I remembered he kind of flopped in Europe.

De La Torre really impressing in preseason with Fulham. Could see significant minutes this year in the premier League. Have always been impressed with his smoothness on the ball. I can't believe the generation coming through it's getting really talented.

He assisted on Fulham's first goal. Seems like he was pretty lively in the first half.

Two players that stood out to me in the 2015 u17 class was Pulisic and De La Torre.

Nice. Hope he can parlay this, practice and Fulham's less than sparkling league form into playing time. Fulham played a 15 year old off the bench. Sounds like blaise's kind of team.

I was impressed with De La Torre's quickness, his first few steps, the last time I saw him play. He's always been a very crafty dribbler, but he was getting major separation from defenders...quality stuff.

Looking back through the thread...RE: EJ's step overs.

He was the step over king. I especially liked how he started his step over sequence about 23 feet in front of the defender...miles away...2-3 on each side...made me gut laugh every time...totally ridiculous....back in the day when we had so few options.
