Really interesting article here about saido http://www.wba.co.uk/news/article/berahino-how-it-all-started-2084894.aspx

'Saido is a role model to the other boys'.

Amazing that, considering so many of our fans don't think footballers are role models (see Ched Evans thread).

Interesting stuff. I've always been quite impressed by Mark Harrison's views when he's written about the academy in the match programme.
I agree with the bit about the way Saido strikes the ball so cleanly - and with either foot.

Think he should be first call for direct free kicks just outside the box. Our record of working the keeper from these is pretty abysmal and it's time to change it and one or two should practice hitting the target a bit more.

Outside the profession not so much, even in the profession its avbit obscure, as they say in the Q&A:

"You can share experiences with the boys that they can touch and relate to as well. If you are talking about Wayne Rooney or someone else, they are a little bit abstract to them because they have never met Wayne Rooney. With Saido, they can touch and feel him, he’s in their environment."

Saido is a role model in same way as their dad may be, rather than a disconnected celebrity.

sad to say but i think if SB is going to fulfil his obvious potential as an Premiership and England star it ain't going to be with the" baggies", with the style of play and service levels that currently come from our midfield , Aguerro and Costa would struggle to get 20 goals a season, so to be honest with you if somebody does come in with the sort of money thats being talked up here we might as well take it because this is the only chance we will have of getting 20m+ for him,  because as his performances start to diminish next season which they will if the same coaching regime is in place his value will drop dramatically,at least if we do it now it means we can buy two more Ideye's to replace him

Great read, really enlightening!
Hmm .. wonder who they're referring to when they say they recently bumped into an ex academy graduate, that joined one of the 'big clubs' & asked him if he regretted leaving the Baggies. He replied 'No, I've got my car outside.' Our coaches were left feeling ' we know who we'd rather have at the club out of you & Saido. My money's gotta be on a certain Izzy Brown.

Frustrating when you think Tadic and Pelle cost Southampton a combined £20m.  Plus they were both fit enough to start the season. Our scouting and recruitment has been poor for some time.

Ronald Koeman had first hand knowledge of both. Tadic easily the best midfielder in the Dutch league last couple of years. Pelle played for him at Feyenoord, although I don't think Pelle is that special.

Plus Southampton play an attacking style. Brown may score goals in their team.

Watched him play for England u19 against Italy and I have to say he was outstanding!!

His career really seems to have stalled. Hasn't been called up by England at youth level since 2012 despite being a regular and playing above his age group when he was younger. Still young, but certainly doesn't seem like he's regarded as one of this countries hot prospects anymore.

Interesting to see how Dhanda and Brown eventually go on to do too.

Is he starting, I heard that he is on the 'franksie show' last night but how does anyone know if the team hasn't been announced?

He should be okay so long as he steers clear of Mozza.

expected him to at least get a runout, but puts lambert on who doesn't get in his club side.

He will be very disappointed not to have made his England tonight but it could be a good thing, should certainly keep his feet on the ground showing him he still has a way to go before he's made it to the big time. May also give him some motivation to prove Roy wrong with his performances on the pitch for us in the coming months.

Interesting to see how the next few months go for Saido now. Was pretty anonymous in the Newcastle game. Must keep that early form going and not slip like last season.

Might as well have played in the England under 21 game. What must he have thought when Lambert was sent on.
