His first instinct when he gets the ball is move towards their goal . Rarely takes the easy option. Could become some player .

I think he's a fantastic advertisement for the club in terms of attracting young talent. Obviously the likes of Man City are still going to turn young heads, but if you look at the opportunity Rogers has been given here, and the progress he's made in such a short time, it has to at least put us in the running for future signings like this. Cole Palmer having to leave City is another factor you'd hope some young players would keep in mind too.

Whoever at the club spotted him deserves huge credit.  Thought he might appear fleetingly for the remainder of the season, but he's become a regular starter already. 

I think if he can work over the summer on getting that extra little bit of explosiveness, he could become a top player.

The number of times Emery’s choices have been proven over time, makes me now start to question whether the games we’ve lost this season weren’t actually losses after all - maybe they were just been part of a bigger Emery plan 😂😂😂

He’s made errors. It’s entirely understandable that not everything goes to plan. But he has also stated he uses games to practice things. So it’s conceivable that much of what we are seeing now is being realized through prior games along with training sessions and his overall attention to detail.

He will have been on the radar of lots of ciubs (including us) for a while. Was at ManC until last summer, having been at West Brom before that.

This isn't some unknown kid. He has represented England at every level up to U21. Boro paid about £1m for him.

He's proving the value of having a play who will just carry the ball in the opposition half. JJ gave us it last season but clearly injuries have screwed him this year. We aren't missing him as much now because Rogers is offering the same threat.

I wasn’t expecting much when we signed him, in terms of getting game time etc this season. But I can see he’s already improved. He could be such a quality player with Emery coaching him. He’s a proper unit for a young lad.

Watched a post match YouTube clip done by some very fair and balanced Bournemouth supporters and was surprised to find out that Rogers had been with Bournemouth on loan but did not impress. Proof that sometimes you have to persevere and understand with younger players you do not have the finished article. Seeing him play against us must have caused a few ‘what if ‘ comments.

To be fair, it's probably Boro who deserve most of the credit for spotting his potential.  Paid £1m, which is nothing these days, and he was starring in the Championship almost immediately.  They made a nice tidy profit too, on a player they owned for about 6 months.

To be clear, I think WE got a bargain, just Boro did too.

I thought he was one for next season and only expected the odd cameo, to come in like he has and become a player who you would be worried if he was not starting is incredible.

All Pep's doing is it not? Nothing to do with Carrick or Emery

Part of Mr Emery’s plan was to give ManUre enough points to ensure Ten Hag stayed in post..

Getting Ramsey fit for next season is important because the prospect of JJ and Rogers playing in the same side is very exciting.

Where would you fit both of them in though?
