I was talking about him with my brother in the pub for the game. He was still to be convinced but I thought in recent games Rogers had to look the part. He’d changed his mind by the time of our post match drink.

Yeah but he'd probably had a skinful by then so we need his sober judgement.

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.


There's no 'd' in Rogers.

NO F***ING 'D' in Rogers!

It's Rogers, not Rodgers.

NO D!

Means we can nickname him 'Buck' I suppose.

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?
I think Rogers best position could well end up being in the 'number 10' role, which would allow Ramsey to come back in on the left. 
Yes, that's what I was thinking.

Yes, these hoity-toity news bulletins fail miserably if you can't even get the spelling correct :-)

Really like the look of him. Can't remember which pundit/tuber was saying it last week but they felt Rogers had the makings of a great player with those driving runs and nimble turns and that if he could learn to release the ball at the right time/to the right player, he could be immense.
I felt like he did that yesterday for the most part and as Unai has said, this kid learns fast. His recent progress has been very impressive.

He played some excellent passes yesterday and made some of what are becoming trademark breakaways and the finish, like his goal against Brentford was superb.

So much potential. He can play wide, as a 10, and perhaps even be turned into a clinical striker too. I didn't think we'd see too much of him until next season but he looks the part already. Bargain.

He started as a striker I think, so he should know the role.

He just seems like a grounded, enthusiastic young man too, which is precisely the sort of player we seem to focus on signing these days. I'm all for it.

'if he could learn to release the ball at the right time/to the right player, he could be immense. '

I think he does that brilliantly, it's probably his biggest strength (amongst many strengths, including strength) and he just does it naturally. Some of his passing was exceptional and the ball through for Watkins which led to the second goal was world class.

One of the best. It's why I do it so infrequently.

Thank you Danny Murphy for letting us know that the reason why he's blossomed so well is because of the time he spent at Man City...

In his Man City tenure, he spent most of his time out on loan anyway.
