At his progression rate he should be there by Brighton away.

Hardly a re-writing of history. I'm saying that we may well have replaced a great player, and at a 10th of what we sold him for. Still a long way to go but Sunday was the best sign yet, and yes, i like the fact that he stays on his feet and is more direct, much more exciting to watch for me anyway.

Morgan is doing fine, but let's not be silly.

The way I see it is Emery wants two players for every position.  Rogers/Ramsey would be very complimentary given all the games we will be playing again next season.

May I remind or make aware Rodgers is known to Mark Harrison who is Villa academy manager.  His knowledge and development of Rodgers is a key part of him signing, settling and knowing his abilities
He was previously WBA academy manager and West Brom coaches spoke about how Morgan Rogers would one day play in the Champions League, being held in a completely different, higher level of esteem.

I don't think this has much truth in it. If Harrison was so confident in him then surely we would have been in for him when Boro got him for a cool one million. Instead we only looked at him six months later when Emery saw him and his price had gone up to £8-15m.

Something in my brain just clicked and I remembered that Morgan Rogers was originally meant to be part of the Jack Grealish transfer, where he was valued at £10m in part exchange.

Confirmed by Meaning Evil:

https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/jack-grealish-villa-city-transfer-21192405

At the time, I think we dismissed it, as nobody knew who he was and was thought to be a pisstake valuation.  So he has been on our radar for awhile.

Interesting, especially since his performance on Sunday was pretty much Grealish without all of the 'look at me' fannying about and falling over.

Címon now. Letís not rewrite history. Grealish was just outstanding for us. Rogers will do very well to get close to that level.

DGrealish can eff off. Rogers however, is playing with a swagger, composure and enjoyment that's just a joy to behold.

Missed a perfect chance there, if you're going to add a d it has to be GreaDlish.

Iíd never heard of Rogerís prior to us signing him. I presume he was brought in to make a few appearances from the bench this season and to learn and grow under Emery.
The injuryís, especially to Ramsey, have meant he has been asked to step up and heís certainly done that.
The confidence and ability heís shown, especially for his goals against Brentford and Bournemouth has been a huge boost. The way he ran through the Wolves midfield whilst they were hanging off his shirt made me sit up and think we had a player. The early signs are very good and a very nice surprise.

You could make the argument that without his signing we may not have got to where we are now, it's been crucial.

Yes.  From being entirely underwhelmed to watching him quickly turn into a very important player has been great.  It's almost like our recruitment team know what they're doing.

Also , because drinking is so common in the Northeast, people's judgement is also tainted when making judgements need a clear head.


I can confirm everybody I have ever met from the NE has been a Snake Bite fuelled lunatic who has never played football in their life.
Well I went to the North East on TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS to see my mate and GOT AS PISSED AS A FART both times. We attempted to play football hungover on one of those visits and I WAS SHOCKINGLY POOR with very little chance of making the England squad.

So it holds up
