    How did this happen?

    Surely if he's good enough for them we should have spotted him?

    Or perhaps Lancing is too far away from Lewes?

    Liverpool and Tottenham are monitoring winger Yasin ben el-Mhanni, 20, who has impressed this season for Ryman Premier League side Lewes and has just started a trial at Crystal Palace.

      How we miss guys playing under our very noses I don't know. He's not the first but SHOULD be the last. And Palace, REALLY?

      Warren spotted him but for obvious reasons decided not to inform the powers that be .

      People have trials all the time, at clubs all over the country. Its a little early to suggest the club have 'missed' anything tbh.

      Fair point, Exile, it just saddens me that blokes playing in Sussex don't end up with the Albion. Suppose I've got the old blue and white specs on again.......

      Of course we'd all love that (Not that this lad is a Sussex boy - he's found his way to Lewes at 20, via Barnet, Aldershot and Farnborough).

      But is this chap actually any good? A few flashes of course, to have attracted a bit of attention, but the reality is that at the age of 20, he's playing for the side rock bottom of the Ryman League. There may well be a raw talent, but he's not influencing games to the point they are winning them - and this some 5 or 6 leagues below the Championship.

      Same situation with Greg Luer - a player who had achieved a lot more in non-league than this - big moan up on here about how the Albion had missed out. He's barely kicked a ball for Hull since.

      PL teams can take a gamble on someone, offering them £1 a week on a two year contract (just a guess). £100k is nothing in the PL but it is all extra debt to anyone outside of it.

      Having a trial and West Brom and Palace and getting the papers talking about Spurs and Liverpool probably means that he has a good agent.

      Maybe he was scouted, had a trial and our management didn't think he was good enough ? We don't know he's been 'missed'.......

      Very harsh on Luer who is doing very well at Hull, to go from playing for Burgess Hill to game time at Hull and regularly around there first team squad is quite an acheivement in my opinion
      Time for some proper football, win lose or draw :-)

      Fair. Not really a comment on Luer himself - more the reaction from some on here, as though we'd passed up Thomas Mueller.
