Ive been following our youth setup recently and this lad is the talk of our academy as well as around the world.
His hat-trick for the Under 18's a couple of days ago was only the tip of how good he was in that game. If anyone gets a chance to watch the 90 mins you defintely should, he was out of this world.

He only turned 16 this week and the talk is that he may make his first team debut a lot sooner than people think.
The experts say theh have not been this impressed since Pogba and Morrison for pure ability but has another level to his game too.

He potentially could partner Pogba in a MF 3 ahead of a DMF (maybe Timmy) and would be the crux of the team a la Iniesta.
He can do everything, ghosts past players without running (like Zidane), can dribble and finishes like a Messi- all control.

He's tipped as the biggest potential of his generation and a proper future star.

If anyone gets a chance to watch his last match ,do it.... Not YouTube clips, the full match.

I'll try and find a link.

Be wary of hyping em when they're young

Might be why the kids nobody expects to do well, do well, like Rashford

This kid is different, the way Pogba was different too

But yes...need to be wary about bigging him up too early

Reports in loads of papers today about hin, only just turning from 15-16 and players trying to kick lumps out of him and him just bouncing up like Georgie used to, he's more of a Silva than a 10 or a wide player but he attempted a Cruyff turn in a game and it took four players on him to stop him, three older Boro players were mesmerised mentally so he took out 7 players and set up a goal, it was 1-1 after 50 minutes until he got on the ball and we won 5-1. Scored a corker for England too
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Yeah, but to be fair, that supports what I was saying about England... when Cleverly was younger, he was very highly rated for good reason... at 15/16 he looked like a player who could become outstanding... what happened? Money had a lot to with it... By 18, he was already thinking about his "profile", and his marketing potential... him and his chubby, blonde girlfriend were modelling themselves to become the next "Posh and Becks"... fuck football, there's money to be made... now look at him... and yet, he's still rich by most peoples standards...

Cleverley was never talked about like this kid.

Have you watched him yet for the Under 18's?

He's bossing games already, completely running the game...and he's nearly 3 years younger than a lot of the others.

I've been following the youth teams now for a while, started to take an interest in it and listening to the reports of those who spend every day with them. He's special
