    Default Oliver Burke, new blood

    They say he could be the next Wilfred Zaha

    Acording to the Post that it is.

    He doesn't yet have his own thread, as he's made it to the league he must surely deserve one.

    Like the look of him. Not scared to take on players.

    Get him involved in a run of games and look for the next to bring in.

    Where's Laing?

    Oh arr, he got sent off dintee.

    Would have liked to see him in the team for the last half dozen games what with relying on Collins and the crocks and Lascelles going off to Wallsend in his Rolls Royce.

    For me, I like nothing better than to see an Academy Graduate make the First Team.

    Good luck to young Burke, I'm looking forward to seeing how he progresses.

    Here's the Post article for anyone who missed it

    http://www.nottinghampost.com/Nottin...ail/story.html

    Dougie Freedman believes Nottingham Forest winger Oliver Burke has the potential to be better than £15m England winger Wilfried Zaha.

    The Reds boss oversaw Zaha’s development when he was manager at Crystal Palace, helping to establish him as a force in the Championship, prior to his big-money move to Old Trafford in January 2013 – and believes teenager Burke has every bit as much ability.

    Zaha is not a £15m England winger. He's worth, now, about £5-6m and will never play for England again.

    I never got the hype about Zaha. I never saw anything in his play which stood out for me; Bolasie, yes, fantastic. Zaha, not at all. Ince looked far and away the better player the year he signed for Manure and his stats proved that.

    Even with that assessment of Zaha, if Oliver Burke turns out to be that good he's done well.

    Nothing like putting heaps of expectation on the boy.

    I see freedman has much to learn about management. This story comes out on the day the 'new Pele' Freddy Adu is in the papers for being clubless and working as a nightclub host. While I'm sure Burke 2.0 will have a decent career these comparisons are never helpful and although Freedman was probably just being illustrative, it's an easy headline for someone.

    Or it's a great way to give him self-belief and confidence

    It depends on the personalities involved I suppose. Perhaps Burke is a quiet lad who needs this sort of confidence push to go to the next level, but if he's the type that already thinks he's the dogs bollocks then it certainly wouldn't do any good. I'd imagine/hope he's the former

    Obviously, DF is infinitely more qualified than me to make that observation, but on the numerous occasions I've seen the boy play in games at the NDA he's looked very much an old-fashioned, head-down-and-go-type. Importantly though, he's quick and can deliver a decent cross.

    I hope his involvement with the first-team last weekend will be a timely boost to his confidence prior to Wednesday's FA Youth cup-tie, as he's an important member of our under-18s.

    ...or maybe he's seen what Burke is like in the training ground and he thrives on confidence? We know nothing about Burke, this might be the type of boost he thrives on...

    It's not a great comparison on your part though, is it? Dougie Freedman actually worked with Zaha, and had him in his 1st team. He has now worked (a little) with Oliver Burke. He actually has knowledge of both players. He hasn't said that Oliver Burke is going to be as good as <INSERT WORLD CLASS PLAYER HERE>, he's saying that he could be as good as a player who did very well at this level, and not great in the Premier League.

    Not even the great Sir Brian Clough knew everything about management when he was Freedman's age.....so give him a break. Our manager is being positive about one of our young talents. Nothing wrong with that at all.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to compare him to his father
