    American prospect Balogun scored a hat trick within 6 minutes vs Barnet:



    Same age as media darling Mason Greenwood and comparable scoring record at all levels too...

    He looks to be playing for England. 4 games for England U-17, 4 games for US U-18, then 10 games for England U-18.

    Well USMNT will always have a spot available for him if he doesn't get called up to England NT. But it's fair, he learned his trade in England and should represent them.

    He'll play for England, if he's good enough. But we seem to be 2nd in the recruiting battle. Nigeria is also an option, but he's attended a US youth camp in the past year.

    Is Yunus Musah good? He's also an American player in the Arsenal academy.

    He is, Juve tried to get him last year and failed. I heard Valencia is trying to sign him this season.

    Yunus represented England at the U17 Euros BTW.

    Still think Greenwood is the better prospect, but I agree that guys like Balogun and Parrott deserve more attention.

    Musah was called up for the U17 Euros but didn't play. Rumoured to be registration issues. Same with Sarmiento. Musah played regularly for the U17s until the March qualifiers.

    Bukayo Saka and probably Gabriel Martinelli too are clearly ahead of all in the same age. Parrot is nowhere near any of the top prospects from any other top 6 side.

    Too early to say with Martinelli IMO. But Arsenal have the best academy crop in England right now I'd say.

    Parrott is absolutely among the top prospects though.

    Highly rated '03 Jude Bellingham started for Birmingham in the EFL Cup tonight aged 16 and 38 days. Same birth year as Harvey Elliot, Louie Barry (signed for Barca) and Karamoko Dembele.

    The only bright spot for Birmingham in the extremely early goings of this season.

    Fulham signs 17 year old American goalie Damian Las. Las is the best young American keeper I’ve seen play at his age. Las had interest from some bigger teams in Europe, but Fulham had the best offer and some teams were unsure about his height. He’s only about 6’1. I think Fulham was smart to get him under contract so soon. He’ll likely generate a lot of interest at the U17 World Cup as the best player in the American team.

    Absolute world class reflexes. He can steal games because of it. There’s no weakness in his game either, unless you consider his height a problem. Keepers are so unpredictable before they reach professional football, so I won’t predict this guy will turn into a world class keeper, but if he ends up doing so, the talent was clear.

    I don't know if his name has been brought up but Eduardo Camavinga is creating some huge waves in France. He is 16 years old playing for Rennes and he is already establishing himself as a key player for his team. He is IMO the next big star coming out of Ligue 1. His poise and control with the ball is incredible.

    Folarin Balogun scored a hattrick once again as the Arsenal U23s won 3-1 in the first game of the season. He is born in 2001 and scoring in historic numbers for his age.

    With Nketiah at Leeds i'll be very disappointed if he's not being given a chance in the League Cup this season. Think Freddie is going to make sure of that though.

    Youssoufa Moukoko had a good start to his season with the U19 scoring 6 goals in his first game as Dortmund beat Wuppertal 9-2.

    Ridiculous.

    Crazy thing being he isn't even allowed to go pro for another 2 years (21/22 season). His youth goal scoring records are going to be insane.

    Here is a link to video of all the goals in all the games of week 1 in the U19-Bundesliga.
