Even if it's not true these type clubs will now at the very least be monitoring him closely. There is a good chance he will repeat Bullays claim to fame later this month and then the interest will solidify.

If he keeps improving it's common sense the kid will move on.
It's obviously in the clubs interest to facilitate that improvement whilst hanging onto him as long as they can. I think to keep him grounded they need do more than cite Izzy Brown as an example of what happens when you play for the big boys.

The thing with the doom mongers on here is that they are constantly negative and stating dour things as fact. Time and time again it's shown up as being utter bull and no one says anything.

What you mean like on the Graham Dorrans thread where somebody said he almost always passes the ball to the opposition and i posted some cold, hard facts that proved this simply wasn't true and it just got completely ignored?! I actually don't mind the doom mongers, i fall kind of in the middle i think but when people say things JUST to be negative it winds me up.

Back to Saido - set to be picked for the full England squad today, should add a few more million to his price for when he eventually leaves? Tie him down to a longer contract and we can laugh all the way to the bank when he probably leaves this summer.

No way will the club sell in January, no chance whatsoever.  In my opinion.

Its great for him to get the recognition for his form, quite frankly if you are the highest scoring English player in the league at the time you deserve the opportunity. With any luck he will get some game time but avoid injury.

If you had told me at the start of the millennium that a player brought through our academy and first team regular would be in the England team I would have ordered whatever you were drinking.

A proud day whatever your thoughts about international football these days.

Very pleased that Saido has made the England squad.  Hopefully he'll get some game time to show what he can do.

I am on record as saying I didn't think he had what it takes.

More than happy to be wrong!

Well done Saido lad, congratulations.

That's £10k added to his weekly wage, £5mill added to his eventual sale and a really huge well done to the Accademy staff.

A big day for Albion, one of our own in the England team. The days of the early-mid nineties are long gone aren't they!?!  :o 8) :P

He'll be off now in January.

Hope he gets some decent game time in at least 1 of the games. However more important for him will be training and being around players like Rooney for a week an hopefully feeling like he belongs at that level.

Also as cynical as it sounds a goal against Slovenia and good performance against Scotland would stick another £5m on his value straight away.

It's becoming inevitable he will leave (I can't see him going in January unless we get really stupid money though) so lets enjoy him while we can. Great news for us as a club, and this will also hopefully help us keep hold of the current crop coming through. I know Berahino is a year or 2 older but  he is now odds on to be playing for England at the Euro's next summer whilst Brown, Dhanda and Sinclair will probably have 5 first team appearances between them for their new clubs.

Peace learns from his mistakes, not a chance in hell he will go in January, I'd put everything I've got on it.

Well done Saido, richly deserved.

Had we not suffered injuries and dallied around in the transfer market last summer then I doubt Berahino would have got his chance. Fortunately he did and took it with both hands. If Brown was still with us he wouldn't have got much game time and would have been shipped out on loan by now IMO. We still seem reluctant to blood our youngsters.

Don't really buy this argument. Brown was the second youngest player to ever play in the PL which doesn't suggest we are not willing to blood youngsters. Yes he could of potentially played a couple more games towards the back end of that season but he was involved in the first team squad and he was barely 16 years old.

Can anyone name a player over the past 10 years that came through the youth set up and didn't get a chance and has since gone on to prove that they were good enough?

Selling Earnshaw wasn't a mistake.

Not replacing him was.

If Berahino keeps on doing well until January and someone offers stupid money then he'll be off. I sincerely hope he stays though

Again it was injuries that thrust Brown into the first team squad back at that time. He appeared on the bench on many occasions but only got something like 20 mins of playing time. I agree that we haven't really had anyone of note come through the ranks. Is this really down to the fact that the players are not deemed good enough or not had their chance? It would be interesting to see where Berahino would have been now had we signed a couple of decent strikers early last summer?

Well, at least if he does go in January then we have got 2 months notice to line up a replacement.  Although finding a replacement with the same likelihood of scoring 15 PL goals is one hell of a challenge even if willing to spend £15m.

We really need to keep him till next summer if we are to minimise the relegation risk from losing him.

Why are people saying he will leave ,...he has got this far because if his place in our team....cant see the appeal of sitting on the bench at Liverpool or Chelsea...
