The Everton teenager struck in injury time to cancel out Adebayo Akinfenwa's first-half goal which seemed destined to give Wimbledon an away victory against struggling Rovers.
Green was named in the starting line-up and had three shots from outside the box saved, one in the third minute and two more in the second half, before he smacked a fourth into the top corner to hand Tranmere a priceless point in their bid to avoid relegation to the Conference.
Rovers remain in the relegation zone, a point below Hartlepool United.

WeÂve got a bunch of highly promising youngsters between 17 - 20 , not all can/will make it and determination and application will be as vital as talent. Good luck,George, a great start.

ThatÂs a cracking goal, created solely by Georgie himself.
I love the fanÂs celebration too!

Has anyone seen him up close? My memory of him first coming in was that he had skill but was tiny. 19 now and I couldn't tell his size by the clip. Has he filled out some?

Green has always been better than average and I hope he can enjoy a spell of competitive games without injury. He'll never play for Martinez but it will be interesting to see how he develops.
13 Posted 29/03/2015 at 06:34:22
Did he play the whole game? How was he over all? I hope he is worth it and gets an extended run of games in a man's league... you learn by doing.

It's difficult to tell with younger players whether they'll make the grade, but the only way it ever happens is if they play competitive football, so this is a good move for him.
Either way, we've still got top quality younger players who we know are good enough for first team football in Garbutt and Browning. Apparently Galloway is very very close too. Quite useful since our back-line needs fresh blood.
I know there is a lot of money at stake for each Premier League position, but I'd like to see some of those lads given some proper game time in the weeks ahead. Browning especially hasn't put a foot wrong when I've seen him play for the first team, yet hasn't had a look-in for about 6 months.
Alcaraz is not what we need and is thankfully out of contract, so we need to build for the future.

On Green, Adams joked: "I think the boy lacks confidence doesn't he? It was a terrific performance and he has fantastic ability and I think he'll be a big player for us in the next seven games. It's as if he's been here all of his career. For a loan player to come here and have that type of impact is remarkable, but Joe Royle and Roberto Martinez spoke very highly of him."

Many years ago when Keegan scrapped Newcastle's reserve and youth teams, I thought that was wrong. But maybe still have a youth set up but loan out more players to get playing time, it will also give the manager a better idea of the player playing in a competitive open-age league.

A couple of comments from Total Tranmere site:
"I thought Green was quite fantastic today for a 19-year-old, still a bit to learn as when to release the ball rather than trying to beat everyone all the time, but this is really picky as he will learn and today was a breath of fresh air to the side. Well done Everton in loaning us this young gem, what a pity another team that plays in red over the water doesn't see fit to help a neighbour in trouble.
"Green frankly looked on a different planet to everyone else. Yes, he made a few mistakes and looked to do too much at times, but his effort, determination and drive was light years ahead of the rest of the team. He was 2 yards ahead of everyone else most of the game. Humey was excellent when he came on as well. Play like we did in the second half for the rest of the season and we could yet pull clear of danger."

The most successful club at producing home grown players during this timescale is Southampton who have produced 7 players. They are Walcott, Bale, Lallana, Oxlaide-Chamberlain, Chambers, Shaw and Ward-Prowse. But for Southampton only Ward-Prowse is still there, but they have made a fortune in the sale of these players. Which begs the question: apart from the top 3/4 clubs, are the rest of the Prem just having to produce to sell to survive? Should that be the case, then how will anyone outside the monied clubs break into the Champions League places?

He then played against Spurs, I think he scored FIVE in that game, then Everton took him on trial for a few games, brought him and his family to Goodison for a derby game, and arranged a fee with Bradford. Spurs then stepped in with a better offer but Bradford stuck to their agreement with Everton.
Then Liverpool came back in for him but Green and his family told them to do one so we finally got him for around 𧵝k which can go up to over ٟÂ½M.
