I'm not sure how accurate the BBC numbers are:

But if they are correct, they suggest you're being harsh with your assessment.

3 goals and 2 assists.

0.38 goals every 90 minutes on the pitch - 4th best at the club behind Armstrong, Dack and Davenport.

He's scored with 30% of his shots - best conversion rate at the club.

With 5 goal contributions (assists plus goals) there is only Armstrong, Elliot and Brereton with more.

 

Step overs are meaningless if you watch the ball like " an hungry dog watching it's food bowl arriving ". Don't look at the feet concentrate, 110% on what the ball is doing.

There’s absolutely no need to be cautious with him, we aren’t throwing him out to operate on a child, get him in the squad and throw him on as an unknown quantity. He’s got the potential let’s ha

I bet he played a fair bit of futsal during his development.   His decision making will improve with age (although I don't trust this lot to develop anyone - nyambe a perfect example of stagnating potential) and once he fills out, he needs to add to his defensive game and being without the ball.  Not a starter for me.

I am a great fan of Dolan.

His step overs greatly reduce his forward speed making it much easier for a professional football defender to deal with.

He should be majoring on using his ball control and speed to go down the flanks to stretch the defence and also run at speed direct into penalty area to shoot, pass or be fouled.

Ronaldo was fixated on step overs in his early ManUre days but slowly learnt how to do them mainly when running at high speed.

Dolan does them often almost stationary.

Is one of Dolans assists down to when the ball accidentally bounced of his shin to Dack? after Dolan has basically run into trouble and lost control.

Its not a criticism as it does show the value of getting into the box and as near to goal as possible.

I don't think that is classed as one of his assists.

Whilst I don't think that bit of play was quite the 'outstanding' bit of play that some believe, that goal doesn't happen without Dolan.

I like the lad, he tries to do things all the time. He just needs to learn when to stick and when to twist. Like there are things you can do in your opponents half that you can't in your own half. Or like when your full back goes past you outside on an overlap on no account must you now lose the ball.

He has too many touches on the ball and needs to look up while he's running with it. It will come with age and experience but at the moment he's easy to defend against because he hangs on to the ball too long

Let's not forget he's only just 19 and in his first season as a professional. He's definitely got the ability and hopefully the decision making will come with experience. I'd have described Raheem Sterling as a headless chicken when he was younger - he always had the talent, but not so much the end product. 35 goals last season and 31 the season before that suggests he has now.

By the time he was 19 Sterling had played for Liverpool, scored 10 PL goals and won the golden boy award. Surely he wasn't even far off 19 when he made his England senior debut? Dolan isn't anywhere near the same bracket for his age.

I'm not saying he is in the same bracket - the fact is Sterling has improved immensely between being 19 and now - mainly due to his decision making improving with age. Dolan has the technique, hopefully the decision making will come.

I like Dolan a lot but he is deceptive. He is actually slower than he looks. His foot speed lulls you into thinking he is a quick runner but he isn't. He has a good initial burst over the first couple of yards which will stand him in good stead, but he isn't outright fast over twenty or thirty yards like a Rothwell or an Armstrong. I believe that this is why he has developed the step overs as he can't simply push the ball and run.

Acceleration is more important than Pace, more occasions that you will get to use it.

What he does have is good tight ball control, quick feet and incredible agility. A good skillset to have.

From what i've seen of him his attitude is also bang on so there isn't much to worry about for me. Lads only just 19.

I agree that real  speed over 10 yards can be critical if you're playing out wide. If it gets you into a crossing or shooting situation it's enough. 

I like the lads attitude. Just what you don't want face as a full back when you've already been playing 70 minutes.

Let’s be honest whether you think he’s naive, lacks end product or whatever, nobody would have expected 3 goals, 2 assists (plus a penalty won and a huge hand in Dack’s goal) all by mid January from a kid we picked up presumably on peanuts for the youth set up.

How much did Brereton contribute in his first half season (or 2 full seasons) here, or even Armstrong in his first half season in this league, even Rothwell who always looked a threat took a while to start delivering. Whilst the lad may at times hold it too long and not capitalise on his runs he’s also produced the goods by being in the right place to finish moves.

Let’s not forget he’s also been dealing (admirably) with a tragedy in his personal life.

Delighted he’s a Rovers player and hope he continues to develop.

Perhaps I am but I am not going iff stats just what I see.  I like the kid, a lot of but watching he gets me all excited, on the edge of my seat but I end up feeling ket down, more often than not.  Mowbray is not his friend.  Bottom line is this, we got a young lad with speed, flair, quick feet and a go for goal mentality for free.  Those attributes can not be coached into a player BUT with the wrong manager/coach can easily get lost, this is my worry.  He needs to make it impossible for Mowbray to keave him out.

He was playing in the youth cup last season as an U18.  He will be very happy with his own personal progress and starting every game will be way down his list of priorities.   He isn't anywhere near developed physically,  looks like a late developer to me in that respect.  6 mo the ago he was released by the nobbers, let's not over promote him.....he's doing ok and by no means anywhere near a first team starter.
