You wouldn't believe the kid has only played 6 games for us, looks so composed and assured in the middle of the park now. Going to have a very bright future, hopefully with us.

He's got better every game, just needs to work on his stamina.

Thought that was his best game so far. Looked very good.

Has a very good first touch and a football brain. Maybe needs to improve his stamina. Probably our best player tonight.

Will come.  More to do with pacing himself.

Looked very good again tonight until tiring later on. The club need to sort out his contract asap or risk losing another young talent. Would rather have rested him tonight with the TV audience and played Brunt bringing Harper back in for Stoke.

I echo the sentiments of everybody on here. He needs a new deal. If we fail to go up this year he will probably be first choice.

Personally I will be surprised if he signs, because he has played really well on TV twice now and the sharks will be circling. As a free agent at the end of the season his value is well above any compensation we might receive.
If it were not for Murray popping up with the goals last night, he would have been MOM.
IMO the best young player to come through since Bryan Robson (including Izzie Brown).
He can recycle the ball effortlessly, not always playing passes square and behind and his special awareness for CM is excellent.
I hope I'm wrong because we will need these young lads when the parachute money runs out.

What is the issue with contract negotiations, don't tell me we are offering too much. Jenkins better sort this out or it will be his head on chopping block.

It is slightly worrying that we have been told for a while he has been close to signing a new deal and it hasn't yet been signed.

His development would be much better suited to staying at us as well, look how well Izzy Brown's career is going...

Had me a bit of an old fart de ja vu moment last night watching this 'kid' glide around the park
His running, high knee and upright torso, style reminded me of someone and then later my raddled old brain popped up with "Laurie Cunningham used to run like that"
Just for clarity I'm not comparing him to Laurie just saying he reminded me of him

I have said before, I would like to think the signing of a new contract is pretty much done, or else we are being very stupid in showcasing his talents in the first team knowing hes going to walk away.

I still think he will be signing a new 4/5 year deal soon and I fully expect to see him cement his place in the middle of the park.

Really very pleased with Harper, he is comfortable taking the ball in tight areas and is also proficient in carrying the ball. He seems to be a decent passer of the ball and is capable of getting his head up and seeing a pass. He is also not scared to play a ball forward through the lines, which is really the mark of a good midfielder for me.

Echo what others have said, let's get the contract sorted. His stamina does seem an issue but let's not forget, he's a young lad and does have a big frame, he'll find the correct fitness programme for him which will naturally develop the more he plays. His performances do put me at ease a little regards the situation should we not go up.

Totally agree with you Frank, he does have a very similar gait to Laurie, I thought that myself.

he's talented and that won't go unnoticed to the elite clubs who fill these young kids heads with money. Harper could quite easily be a £20m player in a few years if his progress continues. let's hope he isn't another young player we lose.

My thoughts exactly
He has the same running style as Cunnungham, always on his toes and glides rather than runs

Not un restable though which I suspect  is what will happen tomorrow.

That’s truly a massive acheivment for an 18 year old and shows just how well he’s done since breaking into the first team. I’ve said all along he’s our brightest young prospect and hope it continues

Will be interesting to see who plays tonight. I could make a case for us keeping sharper as a starter alongside Livermore and Johansen. Concerned Barry may have peaked this season.

DM made some positive noises about the contract but that was 2 weeks ago now. It is worrying.....I live in hope that we'll have a feel-good announcement before some big game...Villa maybe ?

Still no contract?

Can’t help being worried.  Are the German clubs sniffing?
