Hope he stays for another couple seasons. He is currently behind mason in the pecking order but developing very well. If he goes to Leeds I hope he doesn’t languish in u23 but is loaned back out...to us would be good (but might insist we play him).

Good prospect but is he better than mason? Think mason is our number 1 left back

He's in the best place for him at a team renowned for developing young players and giving them a chance in the first time while still not having the responsibility of having to play every game.

Hate shit like this from telegraph. Why write this ridiculous article that re uses a quote from Greg abbot 3 weeks ago. Absolutely fuck all with Leeds tracking anyone in there and only goes to start upsetting the squad

Rather lose him than Mason. I'm sure there are plenty of talented kids that'd want to come here, especially given the fantastic path we're creating for these guys.

Hopefully he sees that the players who have left and gone on to better things tend to be the ones who have stuck around and got a decent number of first team games in before making a move.

All clubs track players all the time, you can put a safe bet that McCallum and others at Cov will be known and all good young players throughout the divisions have a price and obviously the lower down the pyramid the likelihood the better players will be picked off by bigger clubs, gone on for years.

If it meant we got to keep Mason and extend his contract I would be delighted to see McCallum go as I am far from his biggest fan.

What do you expect from an 18 year old with less than half a dozen appearances to his name?

He is what he is a non league footballer playing the pro game I have very little expectation of him.

Why? he is raw and is always out of position teams will start attacking that side when he plays.
His improvement is spectacular over a short space of time. You have no idea of potential if you can’t see that. Robins rates him highly and you don’t !!! Ha ha ha ha

Pace, long throw, passing, recovery, stamina, a willingness to listen and potential to improve

Start at a low base it’s easy to improve he has terrible stamina terrible positional sense. I like robins but like us all he has a blind spot to certain players McCallum I feel is one

Shows how much some on here know... I seem to remember “no where near good enough for the first team” and “weak link” being banded about!
Good job they never took a career in scouting.
As far as I have seen he has been pushed in the deep end, way above any level he has previously experienced and excelled!
Not surprised, fair play to him! Another off the conveyor belt.

i have been critical of him at times but when you realise he is 19/20 you remember just how good he is. mistakes will happen but if he keeps improving he could have a very good career in either championship or possibly even prem
What's happened to you? Sounding mature and talking sense.

Spelling much improved too.

Already signed his replacement a few weeks ago - Joe Newton the Milkybar Kid.

BBC says 'outside the UK'
Our being top of the table is a double-edged sword.
It will be a magnet for other cluds attempting to siphon off our best players, or even maybe our manager.
Lets just hope we can hold onto what we've got long enough to get promoted.
Listen to Joe Tex.
