My cousin used to play at school with a certain Jerome Sinclair, who is apparently the youngest person to play for Liverpool's senior team. As I've heard, he was twice the usual size of a boy his age and very strong/powerful and could run very fast. They also used to play Rugby at our school, where he could have probably taken on an entire team by himself.

Played alongside a guy who trained at the Man United academy, then suffered an injury and never made it back. He said he'd played alongside Macheda up front. He was a beautiful player to watch.

Two friends of mine have payed against Chris Smalling.


I've played against a few academy players (at least four Chelsea one's, they're everywhere) who haven't made it yet.

Fraser Forster went to my school, although never got to play with him as he was quite a few years older.

Played against a lot of people claiming to have been on Chelsea's books at some point, since I moved to uni. Played against a United youth who played with a Beckham top and used to get loads of late swerve on his shots. Played alongside one semi-pro DM, found myself in a one on one situation against him, just the keeper behind him. I waited for him to make the first move, he did, he lunged for the ball, I struck the ball with the outside of my boot, it megged him and swerved away from the keeper into the far corner from about 10 yards, one of the best goals I've ever scored.

I played against Benik Afobe a few times and he never really stood out. My brother was three years older than me and played with Ciaran Clark for a season but said he never thought he was that talented.

Funny what a growth spurt can do to someone.
