His assist to fellow academy graduate Olli Norwood.
Sign him up
Hope he gets his head down and makes a career for himself with them.
The manager seems to only have good things to say about him at the moment, so hopefully that continues and we get to see a bit of the talent he once had.
Would love to see him make it. He's a very elegant player on the pitch.
Has excellent balance.
Hopefully he can maintain this form, time will tell as he has good spells, then it all seems to go down hill rapidly.
Hope he can finally get his head down and become one of Sheff Utd's main players.
Can’t we get him to annul his Sheffield contract and sign with us as a free agent?
Cleverley is better than him. I hope that sad fact can change throughout the season.
Absolutely. For some reason he glides on the pitch. Hopefully he makes more of this 100th chance.
I'll say this for him, he's had a much more interesting career than the majority of Prem footballers. He's impressed and then flopped in more countries than most of them have been to on holiday.
Still has those snake hips. Can he come good???
Ravel at Blackburn (youtube.com/watch?v=IX0VxsnJfe4 : sorry, 2 likes away from being able to post links). Why is the person in this video not the perfect answer to our CM problems?
Because he is playing for Sheffied United reserves
If he does well there maybe he can get his dream move to Arsenal
There's talk he's already in hot water there, sadly. He was left out of the squad at the weekend after a great performance in the cup. Apparently he put some passive aggressive emoticons on Twitter before deleting them. I hope he gets and stays back on track and goes at least some way towards fulfilling his huge potential.
As soon as he scores he'll be 'better than lingard' or 'can't be worse than mata'
Imagine Ravel playing in last night's Mata role behind Martial with Rashford and Greenwood on either side and Pogba and McTominay just behind. Unbeatable.
Unfortunately we can only picture the Ravel we hoped we'd see when he tore it up as a teenager. He's currently behind Norwood and Fleck in the Sheffield United pecking order so I'm not pining for him just yet, though I'd like him to get a chance this season in the PL.
hes a 26 year old attacking midfielder - these are his peak years (not even on the bench for sheffiled united)
Might have the odd flash of briliance but if he fulfilled his potential he would have had our team and the england team built around him and thats never gonna happen (though who knows a good game in January and woody might splaff £20m on him)
Some people really need to deal with the fact that Ravel should never come back
looking at your post history its adorable how much you still blindly believe in him.
Ok I'm imagining it. He's shit so I'm imagining him playing very poorly. Now what?
About a quarter of the way through the season and he's played 12 minutes.
Not this again, ffs!
I'd rather have Rooney back for the MLS closed season, than allow Ravel to stand outside OT on the concourse and look into through the Megastore window.
He was last seen getting subbed off at half time for Sheff Utd U23s on September 30th as they were 2-0 down at home against Burnley U23s. They ended up losing 3-0.
He’s absolutely terrible, absolutely miles off this level.
This is why we are turning into a mid table club people can’t let Academy players or Legends go. This guy is 26 and has done nothing and I mean nothing in football
But would be amazing for us, apparently.
Whenever this story resurfaces it makes me laugh. Kid was obviously great when he was younger but the myth of his ability has been elevated to some mercurial talent that would have gone on to be in contention for the GOAT.
Anyone ever wondered, particularly with our inability to assess to find talent as a club, if he was just massively overrated by those inside the club?
Imagine what the 13th is going to be like.
The best thing he's done as a professional footballer was that volley he scored in training that got a bunch of views on YouTube.
Sign him up.
And Januzaj and Rossi as wing backs.
Dude...Ravel was never good and he did NOTHING to prove otherwise at the professional scene. Woo hoo he did good against 16 and 18 year olds that was his peak and there are many examples of that. He has FAILED in every club he has been at.
Many of you should know my opinion on Lingard and if you don't I will tell you...he is absolute garbage...YET he is 5x the player Ravel is and if I was making a team I would pick him over Morrison every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Lets stop this make pretend mentality that Morrison was ever good.
Macheda, djordic And timm at the back with dong in goal?
Don't see why you're disrespecting Januzaj like that. Ravel is struggling at Sheffield United. Januzaj is playing for a team currently tied with Barcelona and Madrid for the leading spot in La Liga.
Ravel isn't even quarter of the player Januzaj is
He was good though. You said yourself in this post he was good underage. I wouldn’t expect a Sporting fan to be so disparaging of youth team football
Poor player now though, sure. Didn’t have the mentality. But let’s not pretend there was never a reason the whole club was hyped about him, including SAF
No as I said I think he was above average in the youth setup but that does not always correlate to being good at the professional level. We have had our own experiences at the Sporting academy so I know how it is.
What I am saying is there are People here saying “imagine him behind X,Y, and Z” but it’s hard to imagine Because he never showed anything at the pro level that he did in the youth. It’s an unrealistic thought. It’s like a college basketball star who could never make it in the NBA.
(Me and my basketball examples)
At least we have this beautiful memory, cherish it
