    Last night I watched 20 minutes from England's U17 game and this Bellingham chap stood out. Can see the big clubs competing for him next summer.

    There is no way he will still be at Birmingham past this summer.

    If you're referring to Bellingham, he played for the u17s?

    I read on an England forum a couple of years ago that his family and team had agreed that he wouldn't join a cat 1 academy because they thought it was a false economy because of poor pathway etc. Unless he's going to get into the first team of a Premier League side I'd be surprised if he left Birmingham this season.

    Bellingham, yes, I watched the last 20 minutes against Poland U17 (a link was posted in this thread). It's easy to see he is quite talented.

    He only turned 16 at the end of June but he's played in The Championship this season and got his first goal too.

    One to watch this season.

    Watched the u17 match. Bellingham was the standout player. He reminds me of both Pogba and Foden. Pogba, because of position and how they go about to influence the game, and Foden because he seems very polished like Foden. For example, Sancho was more likely to mess around and try something fancy, and when he pulled it off with his tricky feet, you wonder how someone can do that. Foden, just seemed very polished in his decision making, but also knew what technical skill he needed to accomplish a in the moment task.

    Bellingham is the same way.

    Jude Bellingham started for Birmingham and scored the winner!



    Gelhardt also scored a cracker for Wigan. England u18 Joe Garner also got minutes

    Bellingham managed to get the goal but he was shit beyond that and basically did nothing else all game.

    Great night for Saka last night

    Two assists and a goal, should have played himself into more first team action.





    Wilock was excellent too although Smith-Rowe struggled after coming back from long term injury problems.
