VIDEO: Nelson scores yet again for Hoffenheim

34

It’s starting to look like we’ve got one hell of a player on our hands in Reiss Nelson.

The 18-year-old took his tally for the season to five goals in six games for Hoffenheim, this time finding the top corner with a brilliant curling effort from the edge of the box to give his loan side the lead against Bayer Leverkusen.

The England under-21 international broke the deadlock on 19 minutes from a well-worked short corner routine as Julian Nagelsmann’s side recorded an impressive 4-1 away at Bernd Leno’s old side.

According to the BBC, only one other foreign teenager has scored more goals in the Bundesliga in a single season; that was Ousmane Dembele who netted six times for Borussia Dortmund in 2016/17 before he sealed a mega move to Barcelona.

Hoffenheim’s win sees them climb to 7th in the Bundesliga table just one point adrift of the Champions League places. Elsewhere ex-Gunner Serge Gnabry scored for Bayern as they drew 1-1 with Freiburg.

We’ll be putting him up on a column soon.

I guess all your attention was on Liverpool, Andrew II. This is old news in the world of the internet :(. That said, I can’t wait for him to come back especially as we actually need a direct pacy winger

We will have to get him back at this rate

They won’t be pleased when we ask for him back in January to assist with the title push.

I know you’re kidding, but a lot of people are now requesting for a Jan return.
Personally I hope he stays for the whole season. Just look at what consistent game time has done for him, imagine where he’ll be if he stays there all season then returns in the summer.

Even better, it’s not like our RM is exactly locked in, with Mkhi clearly there to Ben deposed (both due to age and his own performance consistency).

He’s the winger we’ve been looking for.

I think we’ll see a fair bit of Mkhitaryan at least until January.
Emery was saying in his press conference yesterday that Iwobi is more suited to the left than the right.
Aubameyang isn’t a left sided forward, but he’s more suited to the left than the right when played wide.
Ozil now looks like he’s going to play centrally.
This then leaves, Welbeck, Micky, Niles and possibly Rambo fighting it out for a spot on the right.
I think Welbz+Rambo will be used sparingly with us hoping to get a few quid in January.

I’d be surprised to see Iwobi start on the right again, so I think in the league that’ll leave Micky+Niles fighting for that spot until either Nelson returns? Or we do some business.

If Niles starts there on Thurday? I think that could be a clue to what Emery might be looking at.

I am sadly unable to watch the clip. Same with the previous ones that have been posted. Is it because I don’t live in the UK (I live in Finland)? Since it seems to be playing fine for others, I mean.

Still, happy to see him progressing so well in Germany. 🙂 We have a real player on our hands here, and I hope he can continue to grow once he comes back as well.

Who is this Nelson sensation that I keep hearing about, who’s the boy who can beat the up whole neighbourhood, Nelson!, who’s the guy that decides if you live or die, Nelson!

The only way I could love this kid even more is if he started celebrating goals by pointing at the camera and going “Ha.Ha”

He was always special, but didn’t really show it last season. Admittedly, he was played out of position and his best performance for us was at Utd where he played on the wing. This season he has really shown why he was so raved about in the development sides. Eddie is a similarly talented player, his development is being put at risk with all the lack of game time at senior level or even the lack of a loan deal. Eddie, just like Reid’s, has shown that he is too good for U/23 football.

I think extending Nelson’s loan by one more season, adding an option for us to extend on his contract by 2 more years and giving him as much support in Germany as he needs might get us a truly special player. A hale end product is has continued to develop on loan, at the same rate that he had been on from a young age. Eddie should be joining a good club as well. He should be at a club where he can not only get game time, but his development will be a priority just like Nelson’s is at Hoffenheim.

He signed a new contract until 2022 before he went.

Yet the press and Southgate prefer to big up Sancho.

We could have done with Nelson in the squad IMO.

Sure this loan will be great for his development but we are missing another player like Iwobi who can take on and engage players on their own particularly from wide areas.

Yesterday against Liverpool, we had a lot of space out wide as they tried to stay compact and contain us in the middle (in no part thanks to Granit’s superb display playing the ball forward quickly)

Iwobi came on and had an impact bc much like Alexis, he is now our only asset that can attack and pull players out of position with his tekkers.

Which is why I said last January Mslintat has been poor laying us prey to selling Alexis to United (instead of City) for only slightly more profit but also laying us open to the dictates of Raiola in taking Mhkitaryan.

Mhki is a decent player but not what we needed as we already have Ozil and Ramsey (and Smith-Rowe now)

We could have done with Mahrez before City got interested in him. The Algerian was desperate for a move and London was his preferred destination.

Currently, Iwobi I feel functions best on our left side. He’s been played right and is OK but when Emery switches him left and given license to cut in on his right foot, he is a different proposition.

Which means if we should be looking to load up a player to give us equal measure on other flank, it may be in competition with Nelson in the future. BUT that is alright since Nelson needs the competition and he’s only 18 still plus Mhkitaryan should move infield to cover Ozil if Ramsey is moved on.

There are options (albeit most of them will of course be cup tied for this season):Thauvin at Marseille could be a good buy at 25yrs. David Neres at Ajax at 21yrs is another interesting prospect. Fekir at Lyon may be more expensive bc of their chairman.

Have you watched Sancho play? My point is he’s not being bigged up, he is that good. Reiss can develop to be better though, both were always trying to be the better player at youth level despite everything. They were really close because they had an identical style of play. Sancho is ahead of Reiss in terms of development at the moment though

No pressure, Reiss.

Am salivating at the prospect of having iwobi and Nelson on the wings next season. hoooolllaaaalllaaaa……

We have to really chill.. it is good that he’s having a positive loan and he is scoring regularly.. He should be really allowed to complete this season there, get regular play time.. Important step in his football education.. He’s really a kid and should be injected into PL that way..

Hope all this hype and attention doesn’t affect him mentally!

There’s lot of focus on his goals but anyone watching bundesliga, can u give us an update on his game play? And his ability to impact? Pls do..

All we are saying, is give Reiss a chance!

The boy is definitely a special talent and thank heavens we got this lad signed up before we sent him on loan?…i cant imagine what would be happening if he wasnt?, especially with our friends, the ‘kidnappers’ bayern, in the same league and of course, the ‘DNA thieves’, barca, keeping their thieving beady eyes on him? Well, newsflash…you can all eat your heart out😂😂
