52. Tafari Moore

Right-back

 

Athletic right-back Tafari developed well during his first season as a scholar and went on to sign his first professional contract ahead of the new campaign.

Having already featured ten times for the U18s whilst he was still a schoolboy, Tafari, who can also operate as a left-back if required, made his first forays into U21 football last season, particularly when Hector Bellerin joined Watford on loan.

The Hale End product didn’t disappoint, making seven starts for Steve Gattings’ side, whilst also featuring in the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup. The hard-working youngster still made several appearances for the U18s, and scored his first goal at that level against Wolverhampton Wanderers towards the end of the campaign.

Tafari capped off an eventful season by helping England U17s to win the UEFA European Championships for their age group.

    This guy was rubbish today against Chelsea. He didn’t know when to tackle or when to hold his position, didn’t know when to force the opposition down the wing or into the middle. Not very impressed. Where the hell are you hearing comparisons to Sagna? I’m sure this guy used to be an attacking midfielder, he attacked a lot more than he defended! Too unsure of himself.

      The whole team near enough played rubbish mate! And your talking rubbish! Don’t know why your signalling him out he was no worse than any arsenal player out there. Your assessment of him in this match is flawed big time and bears no resemblance of his contribution. As for his defending if I remember rightly the goals came through the middle, and he was the one defender doing overtime for the rest at the back, whilst having to deal with his duties which he done and given it a go in assisting the attack trying to get us back into the match. As a confident and assured player as he is! He seemed very sure of himself in this match but maybe not in some of the players around him. Comparing him to Sagna! He is resolute in defence, linking up with the attack, a good engine and has great potential in general !
