Hope he gets regular games ;clap ;luck
Clearly, they don't feel he is ready to play a regular role in our first team atm.
Assuming he gets decent game time. this could be a big step in his footballing development.
BBC reported Oxford's BMG move. I think this is a really strange, but exciting transfer. A year abroad at 18 could be incredible for his development. Even if he isn't getting into the team as a first choice, living there and training in a different culture is going to be great for his development as a person. I don't think anyway realistically expected him to be in our first XI this season, so, to me at least, this is a positive all round.
No German ;nonono
It should be good for him to experience German culture and German training (which can imagine is pretty regimented)
It's a huge chance for him to learn
It's unreasonable to expect a 18 year old defender (more pressure than strikers/attacking midfielders) to play consistently in the EPL
BMG are also pretty confident playing young players as well so hoping for the best
Reece's first Monchengladbach press conference. I really hope he gets the games and experience, this could be great for his progress. With Christensen getting so much game time in his stay there the previous two seasons it looks positive so far. Go on Reece! ;pray ;thumbsup
Despite that, he was named Man of the Match.
Are we going to see coming back from Germany in a year's time our new RB?
Also if he got a man of the match award then maybe he is better suited to that role....
Let's be honest it seems Rice is now our highest regarded prospect alongside Oxford and we also have Burke who looks like he may stay with the first team this year so we aren't exactly in huge need of a centre back whereas we don't really seem go have a really really talented Right back or CDM at te club (sorry Pike and Makasi)
Just happy they recognised his talent and allow him to develop
Went off to the Palace and didn't come home with an honour.
Suggests he's doing well.
Can't find out who puts the nominations forward though.
Maybe it doesn't suggest he's been doing well.
