Am I right in saying Jamal Lowe is coming up 25? Not exactly young, wouldn’t be a deal breaker but I’d assumed he was 20/21.

 

So he would count as a gamble but doesn’t match the young player, Bowen matches the established young player though.

 

Wouldn’t mind knowing what level they’re at!

Can't see us getting Bowen, I think he's destined for bigger things.

Jamal Lowe is 24 and 6 months old, which is still young in footballing terms. His career is on an upwards trajectory and he's attracting lots of Championship interest so there's a lot of positives to him despite his age not being as young as the typical winger getting to Championship level for the first time.

 

He's one of the players who've made it through the non-league route, so it's worth considering that they can develop quite differently to players who have came through the standard big academy route and can be late bloomers; eg Jamie Vardy was playing non-league up until his mid 20's. They seem to have untapped ability and an added bit of hunger that keeps them developing until a later age. Just like we're finding that Lewis Wing is 23 but he's still developing considerably. Curiously, Lowe came through at Barnet - the same club that Albert Adomah and Yannick Bolasie came through at. They have a knack of developing high quality pacey wingers.

Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying he’s not a good player, the fact that he’s from none league makes no difference to me just look at Lewis wing!

 

Just took me by surprise a bit, it would still excite me to see us get him though as he’s really skillfull.

yeah me too BD. Thought there was something more substantial. whoever changed the title this time should be tutted at for jumping the gun.

 

Now then Brunners it was simply I feel a clever play on words and there was a question mark afterwards leaving it open to speculation.

 

Tut as much as you like going to give myself a pat on the back :cheese:

    • Last I heard Maguire wasn't gonna make it. I just read he might not even play in any of the group games. Honestly, let's say we get through the group with aplomb, do you even bring him back in after that? Is he good enough to justify it? I guess it depends on the individual performances of Mings, White or Coady. It's quite hard to predict the first team for this game. Pickford, Walker, Stones, Rice and Kane are the only ones really that I'd be pretty convinced of.  The Independent has had a guess at what looks like a 4-2-3-1: Pickford Walker Stones Mings Shaw Rice Phillips Sterling Mount Grealish Kane
    • I'm so happy to read considered opinions on the subject, i must admit I've been lazy and only getting my boro chat from the Gazette website comments sections recently which are jam packed with very very dubious posts about politics and Marxism and subverting everything that is english by taking the knee.   I'm very interested to see what happens, if an england player scores then takes the knee. The perma outraged booing mob will be conflicted af and so I'm sure it's going to happen.    Reading comments here has restored my faith fair play to oneboro, I will not stray again...    living in NZ now so I'm excited about the euros, but not enough to watch at 1am with work in the morning!    in the past I was always excited, then we'd do rubbish, so I lost hope, then just fudge through the group stages and start to look up for it in the knockout phase getting me excited again only to crash out in controversial or underwhelming performance circumstances.   now it's fair to say I get more excited as the tournament wears on, always with a shield around my heart in case we get knocked out by a hand of god or uncounted goal that bounced a yard behind the line. we had a bit of luck in '66, but I think we've paid for it ever since.   a young squad with a lot of potential and a very intelligent manager, I'm hoping we put on a show for everyone.   UTB and come on england!
    • It's been all over the place since Eindhoven.
    • we realy don't know how the club operates behind the scene.    
    • im guessing you are trying the same tactic as me - end up at that bottom and then in the knockout stages swoop to eliminate a top seed!!!
