Jacob Ramsey
« on: February 16, 2019, 11:16:36 PM »
His debut is probably the only positive thing to come out of the game today.
Bit of history aswell, the first player to be born after the Millennium to represent Villa at first team level. Also, one of the youngest.

1959-60 - Norman Ashe - 16 years & 47 days
2014-15 - Rushian Hepburn-Murphy  - 16 years & 176 days
1957-58 - Walter Hazelden - 16 years & 269 days
1960-61 - Alan Baker - 16 years & 290 days
1963-64 - Mick Wright - 16 years & 347 days
1960-61 - John Sleeuwenhoek - 17 years & 37 days
1997-98 - Gareth Barry - 17 years & 68 days
1975-76 - Gordon Cowans - 17 years & 103 days
2000-01 - Stephen Cooke - 17 years & 169 days
1978-79 - Lee Jenkins - 17 years & 176 days
1960-61 - Ralph Brown - 17 years & 177 days
1976-77 - Ivor Linton - 17 years & 177 days

2008-09 - Nathan Delfouneso - 17 years & 194 days
1978-79 - Gary Shaw - 17 years & 217 days
1999-00 - Jonathan Bewers - 17 years & 218 days
1973-74 - Bobby Campbell - 17 years & 219 days

Interesting to look at that list and see even now Stephen Cooke and John Bewers are still only mid 30s and younger than Gareth Barry.

Think I read Bewers was an football agent but not sure what Cooke is up to. I remember he was massively rated on here from regular reserve team watchers. Even then we weren't using the loan system well enough, he got a season long loan to Wycombe when he was 22.

Great bit of research MorrisNielson, blimey I thought I was a bit of an anorak, but you put me to shame. Looking at the list I would say their are  3 players who went on to become legends of the club, Gareth, Sid and Gary. Mick Wright was one of my favourite players of the 60s and is one of a select bunch of players to have played over 300 games for us, but I wouldn't quite put him in the legend category.

As you say Jacob has become the first person born in the 21st century to play for Villa and for that alone he will go down in Villa history. Obviously to play a 17 year old in a local derby Dean must rate him very highly and already at the club he has earned the name 'wonderkid'. Now that the season is effectively over for us, I think there must be a case to start him on Saturday, he can't be any worse than Hourihane.

Surprised that Lee Hendrie isn't on that list- how old was he when he made his debut?

What sort of midfielder is he? Defensive, attacking, good tackler, good in the air, and eye for a goal etc?

He played high up the field and took up some good positions but looked understandably nervous and was a little wasteful with possession.

Had a half chance at the very end.

Yeah remember it well, it was at QPR, I would say it's a safe bet to say he's the only Villa player to be sent off on his debut.

I think I was there, if it's the game where we won 1-0 with Yorke scoring. I was sitting in their family stand. Might have been a different game though.
