"great news"
19th Jul 2013 11:32
"Love this guy. Still, no chance at RB with Glen, Andre, Martin K and Flanno ahead of him...try compete at LB with Jose and Jack"

"Great News! Fantastic player. Well done Ryan. The future is bright, the future is ... RED! YNWA! JFT96!"

"This is fantastic news! One if the lads I am eager to see in the first team and hope he will make it. Very talented player, watched alot of him for the last year and very impressed! Well done Ryan, YNWA! :)"

"I rate this lad , very quick , very brave could save the club a few bob if used correctly ."

"Excellent news. A great prospect."
19th Jul 2013 12:31
"fantastic talent and is going to be a legend."
19th Jul 2013 13:34
"Great engine. Always fantastic commitment. Exciting and productive down the right flank. If he gets to grips with the defensive side of wing back duties Ryan could well become a top player. "

"This is a real gem. Better than Flanno and more attacking than Kelly and Wisdom. This is our version of Alves. He wins penalties for fun and assists too. He needs games as the games given to Flanno are not improving him, get him out on loan and try this dude."

"Why does he look like Wayne Shrek"
19th Jul 2013 14:21
"Awesome news Ryan! An absolute star in the making, I hope we can hold on to him long enough for him to get a chance in the first team.."
19th Jul 2013 15:40
"Play your heart out. Get in the first team. Then i'll bust my lungs supporting you every match. Fair deal eh?? "

"gonna be a top player reminds me of dani alves the way he plays and bombs up the pitch"

"I remember this time last year he marked Francesco Totti exquisitely. Have high hopes for this fella, was disappointed and surprised BR didn't even give him a Europa Run-out last year. Fingers crossed 2013/14 is the season! YNWA Ryan Mc!"

"Personally see McLaughlin battling it out with Flanno to be our future RB. I see Kelly and Wisdom as developing into our versatile CB partnership TBH, like Carra did before he took place in the heart of defence. Would just leave future LB to sort out then. I think Robinson has the potential but he seems to have stalled in his development at the moment."

"congrats ryan well done young man, very exciting young rightback/wingback for our future."
19th Jul 2013 22:09
"Excellent prospect with a superb beard.....Not enough beards in football these days. It takes a certain flair to sport a beard and still look cool....I should know...ahem....Kudos to Ryan."
I told you so

"Really been impressed with this kid. Needs to bulk up a bit in order to cope with 1st team demands but he's only a teenager and has great skills and will make an excellent attacking FB for us imo."
