Got to admit, I'm a bit confused with Rakeem, he does show flashes of brilliance, but I think he's far from the finished article.

I think Sam Field is better suited to the sitting role, & I've yet to see any consistency from Rakeem in an attacking role.

Pretty sure he's capable, but he seems to lack self confidence.

I think you are right about the self confidence. He still seems a bit tense when he plays. When he can relax and let things flow, he will start being more effective in making things happen. All in all, a fantastic start to his 1st team playing career and a very exciting prospect.

He's a box to box midfielder. Needs to work on his finishing but he's got everything else required, bite in the tackle, superb passing range, time on the ball, good vision and good positioning. Closest thing to a Steven Gerrard you're likely to see coming through at Albion.

Perhaps you could bear in mind the guy is (just) 19 years old.
I have never seen the 'finished article' in ANY player of that age.

All of those things - yet remarkably in 3 months time he’ll have walked away as a free agent.  Gross negligence on the club’s part.

And just how was the club supposed to force him to sign?

Not sure what you mean by "Give the kid a break"?

I said later on in my comment that I thought the lad had tallent, but  he needs to work on his confidence.
Is it no longer OK to give constructive critisism?
If it was easy, it wouldn't be Albion
