I might be the only one, but I'd forgotten all about this lad. I remember him having a couple of minutes of first team action last season but after that he dropped off the radar somewhat, with Barkley emerging as the new academy favourite.
Seems he's now putting in some pretty impressive performances, albeit at Stockport, and their fans can't praise him highly enough. Has anyone seen him play recently? Does he have enough to make the first team at some point?

In the Europa League game away to Sigma, he was pointing and telling the senior pros in the team where to play it next and things like that and it was good to see.
I liked the look of him and like midfielders that play like that but Moyesy obviously sees things differently and doesn't think he's quite ready for us atm.

It amazed me that it was not unusual that they had anywhere around 20 players either in on loan or out on loan. At a vital period of their development, it is far better to place these young men into competitive environments.

Admittedly it sounds as though he is doing ok. But doing ok in League 2 is a long way away from having a chance to make it at a Premier League club like Everton.
If your really good you don't go out on loan to League 2. Especially when your 19. Could you imagine Wilshere or Rodwell playing in League 2?
My guess is Wallace will have a decent career in the lower leagues like say Steven Schumacher or Anthony Gerard.

But all the best to the lad, you can only deal with what you're given.

Mind you, Rodwell keeps gettin' a game... and the game just passes that man by.
