One of our elite youngsters. Good to see him getting a goal - hopefully he will get a chance to impress out on loan this year.

You have to believe he is in with a chance of getting into the side during the second half of the season. Seems to be getting bigger now and to be playing under 20's having only turned 18 this year shows he is in front in his development.

His name sounds rather African. Are you sure he is 17?  ;)

Take a look at this link:

At 17 if he was going to be a major force in football then you would expect him to be playing week in week out now really.

Not necessarily BB74, being only 17/18 in a premier league side leaves him with lots of time to break in to the first team.

Admittedly, if he does not break in this season then there will be some doubts over whether he will be a top striker but you can be good enough for this level and break through in your twenties. It all depends how you develop and Berahino is coming along nicely.

Been scoring loads in the reserves, and when I've seen him he's looked very impressive. What do you guys think of him?

The one goal I've seen was a cracker. England U17, I think it was.

Seems like a good prospect as does kemar roofe (apologies for spelling). Has anyone heard anything about Izzy Brown? He was a kid paraded in the hawthorns when he signed last season or season before.

I think Brown comes through next year.

As for Berahino, he has been highly thought of for a few years but im surprised he has only made the match day squad once and was not taken on the clubs pre season tour.

Players like Thorne, Mantom, Roofe etc all seem to have pushed ahead of him in the opportunity stakes and his tournament with the England u19s or 20's didnt seem to really work but hopefully this year he will get a chance to go out on loan somewhere like league 1 and we will see him start to develop.

He was really poor at the U20 World Cup.  Played up front on his own which is a thankless task anyway but the way we played didnt suit his game.

Hate to draw comparisons but he reminded me alot of Ellington in terms of build, demeanor and workrate.

I'm hoping he just had a poor tournament because on thatt showing theres no way he'll break into our first team any time soon.

What position does he play? Saw him in our squad list for the Swansea match but had no prior knowledge before that.

He seems quite versatile. Think he has been playing on the wing the last few reserve games, and still getting some goals.

what the hell has happened to alliyu ?

Got injured towards the end of last season when he was on loan at Tranmere, don't think he's figured at all yet this season for any of the teams including the academy so maybe still injured

Speaking of youth players in general, is anyone else disappointed at the lack of players who actually become regulars in the Albion first team.?

I know it's difficult being a premier team and the reluctance to try the kids in matches, discounting the cups, but it seems like ages since anyone came through for our team.

I think you could say that about a lot of clubs at our level as well as Championship mate, obviously there are exceptions but i would say the majority are reluctant to blood youngsters as the stakes with money in respective divisions is too high to take a punt on younger players.

The problem is simply that to compete regularly at PL level the young players have to have talent levels that are extremely rare (on the order of 1 among thousands, probably tens of thousands). There are a lot of players without extreme talent, but they have to work years to reach a proficiency that enables them to do a job for PL teams (see McAuley etc etc).
