Much better served playing and scoring for the under 21's tonight in a competitive fixture than sitting on the bench for the senior side for friendlies.

very very true....


These young talents need to play and not sit on the bench...


U21s is much better for him than Seniors

West Brom is much better for him than reserve for the reserve bench at a supposedly "Big Club".

This lad signing a 4+ year contract and Albion finishing above Villa are my two goals for the season.

Starting striker for us next season. Morgan on the right, Sess in the hole and someone decent on the left.... A great attacking lineup!

Top scorer for the under 21's is apparently Alan Shearer with 13 goals in 11 games.

I personally dont think hes ready for the first team so with 6 in 4, Saido could rival that.

The guy is an absolute gem, he finishes so easily its too natural.

I agree the lad needs to play up front as the main striker, when you have someone with that kind of finishing ability you dont play them on the wing (even though for development it could do him good).

we need to embrace the striking skills and give the lad his opportunity.

His game isn't developed enough to play up front on his own in my opinion and nor is his body.  Berahino seems to be a striker whose sharp in and around the box and has pace to play off the shoulder of defenders.  Working off a pivotal experienced striker such as Long, Anichebe or Anelka suits him best for the time being.  I wouldn't want to burden him or pressure his development by making him our focal striker.

The formation we play suits his game well, in what is a wide attacking role, I wouldn't say he is being asked to play as an 'out n' out' winger but part of a three pronged attack, where the wider players are slightly deeper than the central striker.

I think he will benefit from playing the wider role that he has been for us so far, developing different parts of his game and doesn't have a centre-half kicking him all game. There is less pressure on him out wide than being the lone striker, he's certainly doing a good job there so far.

I see his booking last night means he is suspended for Tuesdays Qualifier. I presume that there's nothing to stop Roy calling him into the senior squad though as their game is a friendly ?

Come on Roy make his day  :D

He's banned from the u21's next game for lifting up his top to say 'RIP love u dad'. Unbelievable.

Apparently it's a strict rule and Southgate said if he'd known he had it on he would have made him take it off.

I'm really pleased that he scored twice last night shame that he wont be able to play in the game against San Marino. That is six goals in just four appearances for the England U21s. I am really sorry to hear about the passing of his Father. I think booking players for lifting your shirt is ridiculous.

I think as someone else has pointed out it isn't in his agents interest for us to sell him at the moment as we wouldn't get as much due to his current situation & therefore the agents %age cut of his fee will be lower then if he was sold on a decent contract with a few years left.

I dunno. My Dad loves him and he can be right occasionally, he doesn't seem to care how old he is or whether he has Prem experience or whether we need to phase him in gently. He is probably right did Regis, Cunnigham, Robson or even Brown get managed gently? The kids got talent play him every week that simple. I am more pragmatic perhaps we should play him on the left and let Long or Anichebe lead the line, great player to have and how exciting. As someone once said the future is bright in blue and white!
