    Still not sure where his career is heading. Sure he has won a title at Celtic and got an international goal.

    At least when Bamford left for Chelsea he went on loan and was scoring goals and winning player of the years and stuff.

    Latest is he could be heading back to Germany. Whilst still young at 22 I back our 22 year olds (Worrall, Cash, Yates) to have had a better grounding and base to push forwards on in their careers than he has.

    Contracted until 2022. They're gonna have to take a hit to shift him.

    Should really loan him to us. Best chance he has of spinning his career around, & them retaining his value.

    A 6 month loan from January with a cut price purchase fee pre-agreed if we can kick start his career?

    It's easy to throw around but I think it looks like a mental thing to me.

    He just looks like an outsider at every club he's been at apart from Forest. I think he will continue to drift until he joins a club where he is going to be the main man - but his wages almost stop that from happening now.

    A spell without a club, because those that could afford him don't want him, would be a useful 'wage reducer'.

    All I’d offer here is some feedback from his time at RB Leipzig; apparently he didn’t learn German or seek to integrate with his team-mates, which left him a peripheral figure in training - and that at a club who pride themselves on developing youth talent and giving it opportunities.

    It might be he’s a bit of an introvert and just uncomfortable in certain environments?

    It has to be said though, he showed enough promise at Forest to indicate there was a real talent in there somewhere.

    it's a shame at how his career has panned out, don't think bilic knows how to utilise his potential either. when burke came on in the opening match , i was expecting him to tear worrall a new arsehole but did burke even touch the ball. he needs the kind of supply/passes that bamford was getting that allows him to use his pace fully.

    he's still young , hopefully he'll resurrecr his career and not turned out to be like dale jennings who went from wonder kid who went overseas to bayern munich and came back a lost soul who is now in non league.

    Worrall had Burke in his pocket in the Toulon tournament he captained England to winning so unfortunately for you they've had their battle before that Worrall won hands down.

    Still think Burke's best position is wide right, although I can see why from his build and abilities people would try and make him a striker.

    I think sometimes, players can be over coached. There's a lot to be said to creating a style of play, having systems and playing with a specific identity. However, I think there are also players who just have such pure, raw ability to do certain things so well, you don't try and make them change it.

    Get Burke wide, get it into his feet and tell him to run at people. It's that simple. Drive at people with your speed, size, power and good feet. He can beat people inside, outside and in the air.

    I'd fucking love to see him back at Forest with the modus operandi to get at people, run in behind, get us forward on the break.

    He definitely moved too soon. Not his fault though, Fawaz needed the money into the club desperately to keep it ticking over, so he sold the best asset for as much cash as possible. Burke couldn't and wouldn't have been allowed to turn down 30/40k p/w at Leipzig.

    But if he stayed, I think he'd had found out more about himself, dealt with struggles a bit better, because he'd have played at every given opportunity. He'd probably have scored 20+ goals too from wide right.

    Turns out it's all worked against him. Sure he'll have a nice life now. But doesn't seem anything like himself on the pitch.

    Real shame, because there was a point he was genuinely looking like someone who'd impact the game on the global scale.

    seems he's struggled to settle anywhere else..perhaps a return here at some point may be what he needs
    surely he cant be happy with how things have worked out for him

    Superbly short-sighted article on the sale of Burke.

    https://www.shoot.co.uk/fawaz-al-has...st-he-must-go/

    Some of the OTT hysteria & BS is quality, my faves being.........

    Thirteen million pounds for a player of that calibre and potential is peanuts.

    The term ‘wonderkid’ doesn’t do Burke justice. This kid will go very far, to the point where he could even stretch beyond playing for an English top four team and maybe break into Europe’s elite

    Fawaz sells the best Forest academy prospect this century in Oliver Burke to Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig for a £13m fee.

    personally think his confidence is shot. reckon he could do with a season or a long loan in league 1 just allowing him to rip it up a bit. find that form he had at forest, still thing the moves at that stage of his career have sent his development backwards

    Next stop. La Liga. His agent is a piece of work. Hopefully he can find a home.

    Leipzig and Celtic with European football. Premier league football with West Brom and first international goal with Scotland. But you're 22 now and nomadic. Time to knuckle down.

    The money was nice and tough not to accept but in terms of his player development, moving away for us where he'd become a starter to warm the bench at Leipzig was a terrible move.

    Think he should be a much better player than we are currently seeing.

    A move to Spain would be a disaster in my opinion.

    Apparently he struggled to adapt in Germany and couldn’t learn the language, but Germany is much closer to Britain both culturally and linguistically than Spain.

    I bet less of his team-mates/coaching staff at Alaves will speak English than RB Leipzig too.

    So he’ll be isolated, unhappy, unable to understand what the manager wants from him and most likely spend most of his time out of the team. I predict they’ll cut the loan short in January.

    He should be buckling down at WBA and trying to get his career back on track, not flying all round Europe becoming even more of a nomad journeyman.
