    Aye I've never though of him as an out and out striker to be fair. More of a Larsson role - when he first signed for us.
    Able to play in and around the wings-front line.

    Height matters a lot less if you're bulked up. Fellas 15, dont stress it.

    I'm not expert on anything to do with biology, but in idiot terms, I think most lads have a growth spurt and then their growth really slows down for the next few years, depending on a variety of factors such as genes, diet, environment etc.

    Just checked and he's 5ft 7. But still point stands :56:

    I've seen pictures of him at Fulham as a youth player and he was tiny, as you'd expect.

    Need I say more.

    Even Shane Williams in rugby. Voted the best player in the world at his peak.

    Aye can tell he is a short *, even at 5'7'' it's still quite short. Reckon that must be similar to Messi height?
    And yeha, point still stands.


    for 15 though, I'd expect Dembele to get an extra inch or two. Clearly won't be the size of Dembele or Edouard or Ntcham of course, but they aren't to be his position.

    We let Andy Robertson go because of his height and now he's in the CL final...

    I never believe that, thats a common claim by das of players let go or not given a game - "they let him go cause he was too wee". Never "he wasnt getting a game cause other players were better than him".

    I've heard it a million times, even know a guy whos boy was let go from Sevco last year and went to Partick Thistle and he claimed the same lol

    I also mind that Jack Harper who was pish but because he was at Real Madrid people thought was good, his dad came out and said the Scotland U19 manager wasnt playing him because he wasnt big enough - despite him being one of the biggest players in the team when infact his boy was just * and not good enough to get a game.

    What's the story with his international allegiance? I assume he doesn't have to make a call on it until he's 18 but can he just go between countries until then?

    His Instagram posts are for the most part him playing for England pictures and he seems to have the captains armband on in a few. This is as recently as last month.

    Then last night he's back playing for Scotland U17s?

    As he is 15 he can swap and change as much as he likes. He played for Scotland u-16s and England u-15s aged 13 and has probably swapped to get more experience. I am unsure the age they have to pick but he has 3 to choose from. Who do you pick from, where you were born, where your family is from or the country that you were raised in? He seems to be a talent playing well above his age and expect to see him playing 1st team football in a couple of years and he could probably walk into any of the teams later on. However him representing Scotland for the U17s 2019 European Qualification next month only shows a good sign. He has also represented Scotland far more than he has England.
