You can see there is real talent,however you feel like another 18 months at Birmingham would help his development
Yeah leaving your parents and heading off to another country would be a massive issue, so United it is then...I don’t need to ”think”, lots of reports already saying Jude didn’t fancy it.
I think with a choice between this United & Dortmund, the choice is easy for a 16 yr old.
I think that was like a lot of his games this season, lots of moments where he shows his class and higher technical level but not enough impact. Birmingham have done better recently but for a long time were hovering just above relegation and don't get their attacking players involved enough. That said, he was involved in a few dangerous plays and should have scored. I think he only needs a few tweaks to become a really dangerous player at that level.You can see there is real talent,however you feel like another 18 months at Birmingham would help his development
At 16, no kid really has that physical presence unless your Rooney.He’s definitely not ready for the PL but I do agree that’s 6th game I’ve seen of him and generally what you notice is excellent ball control and decent dribbling (nothing to write home about) but a clear potential to develop further with decision making.
He’s a creative outlet for Birmingham and holds his own well throughout a full 90. I think 2 seasons time he’ll breakthrough more. He has the height but not quite the physicality of a mature player.
Exactly I don’t expect him to have those attributes yet which is why I said 2 seasons for him as a midfielder.At 16, no kid really has that physical presence unless your Rooney.
If you’re adult size at 16, you’ll most likely balloon into Akinfenwa by your early 20s
If only life was so clear cut & simple.So if Bellingham is the real deal, I’d say go and get him now. The days where a team like Spurs can pick potentially good players up for cheap and then we can happily pay premium 2-3 years later are gone. We have to identify those players at that early stage. If Spurs get Bellingham today, you can kiss any chance of him coming here goodbye unless you want to pay an extraordinary and ludicrous amount of money.
Played on the right side last night, watch 20 minutes of the most boring game I've ever seen and with the years of watching LVG and Jose that's saying something.Had a good game last night it seems, got man of the match on whoscored and the assist for the winner.

When he did get on the ball he was neat and tidy, also aggressive in a tackle.

He's done well in such an uninspired side. You'd hope to see him kick on a fair bit next season.
