    He's turned 17 this year. He's scored constantly at every level he's played, generally whilst playing one or two age groups above his peers. He was the top scorer in the entire CONTINENT in qualifying for the European U17 Championships last summer, but he's 'not going to make it' because you didn't like what you saw in his first TEN MINUTES of senior football?

    Even by the knee-jerk standards on here, that's spectacular cuntery.
    Although, to be fair, we knew he was never going to make it last season, as we were reliably informed that Manchester United were not knocking on his mam's door when he signed for us.

    I think, but I may be wrong, that it is the cleverest quip I've ever seen on NSC.

      Anyone on NSC able to make the step up?
      My young lad is 25, lives in Melbourne, played in this years REMF down Under for BHAFC in the 4-2 win over Croydon in Sydney. He's a striker, got two assists and nearly a last minute goal in that match, he's rapid, he's fit, he's just run the Melbourne half marathon in 1 hour 25 minutes, so he has an engine too. Shall I get on the phone?

      I'll be surprised and disappointed if the club haven't read your post and dropped what they were doing.

      This is a comedy thread right? In all my years of watching the Albion I don't think a single striker has stepped up from the under 23s since Peter Ward. Why would we suddenly find one now?

      Hardly one we developed though: we were his fourth club, and he was almost 21 by the time we signed him.

      so what is the point of teh U23 if none of them can step up?

      Barber Out
      The point of the U23 my friend is to develop a steady stream of players suitable for League One and convince other clubs to buy them at 250k each. Or three for 600k.

      We're not even achieving that from them.

      I faxed them his Oz mobile number, but its 3.40am there right now, so I told them not to call until after his alarm goes off in 4 hours time.

      Fair point, but then more than half of the current U23 have been with other clubs first so our wait to develop 'one of our own' genuinely is going to be a lot longer than anyone would hope for.
