Tammy Abraham


Recommended Posts

I see that Tammy Abraham has signed his first Pro contract with us. He promptly celebrated by scoring both goals in a 2-0 win over Kiev in the UEFA Youth League. This follows his 41 goals for the youth teams last season.

 

Only just 18 so he is a bit down the pecking order but if he keeps going at this rate he will be putting pressure on Bamford, Solanke & Brown as to who might break into the first team.

This is doubly good news in the light of the common conception (or at least Wenger said it once) that Europe is no longer producing top-level strikers. Being able to consistently create centre forwards with the potential of Bamford, Solanke, and Abraham might prove to be very important if the general standard drops among our domestic and European rivals.

 

How many world-class, out-and-out strikers are there in the world right now? Aguero, Suarez, Lewandowski are the only ones I could say with total confidence. Maybe Benzema, Rooney, Cavani at a [large] stretch. I know plenty would say Ibrahimovic but I have various issues with him as a player.

Solanke has 2 goals in 4 starts and 1 on 3 sub appearnces. I'd hoped he'd have played more 

He had some problems with paperwork etc so has only really been available for a month and a half. and has since forced his way as the first team starter and looked pretty good.

It's Brown I would worry about who has slipped out of reckoning

Tammy and Izzy Brown both made appearances for the England U19's 5-1 win against Japan. Abraham bagging a brace and an assist in the 70 minutes he had on the pitch and Brown coming on for the last 30.

Here is all the player relevant snippets from the match report.  

'First half goals from Josh Onomah, Patrick Roberts and Tammy Abraham ensured Aidy Boothroyd’s side took a 3-1 advantage into the break.

And Abraham was able to add another in the second period to cement England’s dominance'

'After discussions with Roberts (in which Roberts and Abraham played rock paper scissors to decide who took the penalty), Abraham placed the ball on the spot but his effort was saved by Kojima down to his left.'

 

'Despite this setback, all was forgotten moments later as Abraham slid in Roberts with a neat reverse pass on the edge of the area and the Manchester City youngster expertly placed the ball in the top corner.'

'But back came England, and making amends for his earlier miss from 12 yards, Abraham drilled home first time with an angled effort following a cross from the right to restore the two-goal advantage.'

'Izzy Brown, fresh from the bench, almost made an immediate impact as he thundered a strike off the post as England came alive again, and they deservedly grabbed their fourth seconds later.'

 

'A long ball forward looked to have been dealt with by Reiya Morish*ta as the centre-half simply had to roll it back to his goalkeeper, but his under-hit pass failed to reach its destination as Abraham pounced to finish for his second.'
