I for one am keeping it real.Let's keep it real mate.
He did brilliantly for his debut and we're all delighted for him, but it was against part time opposition and he dropped out the game a fair bit in the 2nd half.
Gio has just said he's still got a lot to learn.
Let him develop at the right pace and fulfill his outstanding potential.
He deserves to enjoy a special night, without unrealistic claims and demands being put on him.
Look at how he is already turning away after passing the ball into the net. He knows he's scored.
Absolutely, we need to take the level of opposition into account. But the other members of the team, all with first team experience, who started against that same level of opponent were hardly burning the house down, were they?
Yes, he is a work in progress, but for me, and despite the standard of Stirling tonight, that boy looks as if he is here to stay in the first team squad. At least.
