You never know what transfer deadline day is going to yield for the Town. Often there are fears over who we might lose at the last minute but this year it was all about who we were going to bring in to help Luton in our aims for this season.

One signing would have been perfectly acceptable after a decent summer of additions, two fantastic but three would be amazing and that is exactly what we got.

James Bree and Luke Bolton came in from Premier League outfits Aston Villa and Manchester City respectively, but it was the signing of Chelsea attacker Izzy Brown that stole the headlines, and on Tuesday night we saw exactly why.

I admit I had never seen the 22-year-old play before, other than the odd appearance on the television, so I was keen to see him with my own eyes. I got that chance in the Carabao Cup tie with Ipswich Town, in which he was named in the starting XI.

I expected good things from the new Luton signing. You don’t play for England at all the age groups he has played at if you are not good, but I must admit I didn’t expect quite what I saw.

In front of us on Tuesday night we saw a young man who completely dominated the game, with a wonderful ranging of passing, positional sense and technical ability, not to mention the pace and power than this current Luton team is rapidly being built on.

From the cross for Lloyd Jones to put the Town ahead to the many other chances he created on the evening, this was a standout performance from a superstar player.

If what Graeme Jones says about Brown still not yet being fully fit is true then we have got a seriously special player on our hands this season, and if we keep him away from the physio room, he could just be the difference between a good campaign and a great one.

I’m very much looking to following his journey over the next nine months. It looks sure to be a sensational one!
