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...

Danny Murphy is an absolute clueless bellend.

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.

If his time at Man City's academy is the reason for his success, then why after two years playing there did he not impress in any of his loans?

West Brom have obviously done a good job with him to get him on their radar. Boro then did a good job with him to get him on ours. And Emery has gone a good job with him because you can literally see the improvement in him in only a few months.

Seems like City did help his development, just not that City.

Quote
...after a decade at Albion, Manchester City’s offer in excess of £4million was accepted and Rogers headed to the Etihad Campus just after turning 17.

He was a part of the Man City under-18 side which beat Chelsea 3-2 in the FA Youth Cup final in 2020, scoring one of the goals, but admitted to struggling to adapt to City’s structure. Pep Guardiola’s methods are spread across the club’s youth sides to allow academy players to fit into the first-team when called on.

However, Rogers felt like a “mannequin” in City’s rigid structure and couldn’t express himself, so his first loan spell at Lincoln - who played a free brand of football - came as a relief. It was his most productive loan spell despite only being at the age of 18...

His goal was so very, very good. First of all the surging run, but then the skill to cut inside the defender, and unleash a fantastic finish. But also the supreme confidence in his own ability when I suspect most players his age would have looked to have passed it in the area.

Oh Rob, that's a beautiful quote fail.

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

Always going to happen from Rob_brige.

May I remind you that most academy footballers don't make it.
Going in at 8 , 10 , 12 years old majority aren't deemed good enough eventually at 16 onwards
The reason it's such a small number that makes it is because of what it takes in those developing years to be a pro footballer.
Then you get the special talents and Morgan Rogers is clearly one of these.

Clearly the clubs weren't right for him. Not playing the right football , the system and the set up.
It's hardly his fault because he's been said to be a wonderful talent and suited to Premier League football.

The finish looked good but it did come off the keeper's face.

So it was a good finish then
