Britt Assombalonga

This guy is class. 9 goals in 8 games at the start of the season and spearheading Forest so far this season. Hat trick last night against Fulham and all crucial goals.

Destined for the top, imo. Looks a bargain at Ł5,5m.

He tore up League 1 last season but went relatively unnoticed because of the circus that follows the Prem. It's a shame really you do get some gems like this in the lower leagues who make the jump to the top, recent one to come through that Peterborough route is Dwight Gayle at Palace.

soon to be 22 year old and still in lower leagues...well I don't know, seems like nobody considered him an elite talent before his current run. Not even after scoring 33 goals for Peterborough last season did EPL clubs come knocking.

so basically what I'm saying is that although I've never seen him play I doubt he'll be a first rate star who can cut it on the highest level...if he had this perceived potential he'd be in a club like Newcastle or Everton by now.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes?

Rob we're in 2014 dammit, put a youtube video on.

Scroring at 19-20 years old only 16 goals in 49 matches in the 4th division of England as a striker is pretty lame. I see no talent in this dude.

TBH his life situation was completely different...Drogba's teenage years were chaotic and he had no opportunity and stability to properly train...then starting with heavy training relatively late, his body could not take it and he had tough injuries. provided with the same opportunities from the early age as this Britt guy his story would've been different.

Furthermore, Drogba's complicated family life meant that he had never attended a football academy and only began daily football training as a fully grown adult.

Giroud might be a better example.

This bloke might end up in the Prem, somewhere. (Newcastle? Aston Villa?)

But, Future Star?

He didn't score much, then he did.

P.S. I know he was just a useless winger back then.

Back when? By 21 years old he was already ranked 12th , 21th and 16th respectively at the Ballon d'Or.
