Starting to realise his potential


We all know about what issues Ravel Morrison had at Manchester United, so I won’t bore you by dwelling on them again.


A few eyebrows were raised when Sam Allardyce went after the youngster, who no doubt had massive potential, but posed a big risk as well.

But it would seem that Morrison is starting to shine at loan club Birmingham City, despite some hiccups earlier in the season.


At the start of October, Blues manager Lee Clark had reportedly had enough of Ravel’s attitude and lack of effort in training, and didn’t include him in Birmingham’s squad despite Birmingham being just 3 points clear of the relegation zone.


But West Ham would have had to agree to let Morrison return to them with his tail between his legs, and without the mutual termination of the loan deal, Ravel will be remaining with Birmingham until the end of the campaign.

Come the end of the month, after talks with Morrison, Lee Clark said: “Since then he’s been nothing short of brilliant in terms of his application and his attitude.”


He continued: “No-one is doubting his ability. That’s why everyone that’s worked with him gets frustrated as they see a very, very talented young man.


“So now we are trying to educate him on what it’s going to take to get consistent and stay in the team.”


Recently, he has been in the news for all the right reasons; he’s made it into the squad and is shining in matches. He scored a brilliant volley earlier this month, and Clark has even said that he reminds him of Paul Gascoigne.


I can’t help thinking that the loan deal was a coup for Big Sam – hopefully by the time the loanee returns to the Hammers he will have learnt all of his lessons at Birmingham and won’t have tested the patience of his parent club. Clark seems like Mr. Muscle – doing the hard work so Allardyce doesn’t have to!


Ever dreamt about getting paid for reading about West Ham? Well now you can make dreams a reality



I for one am excited to see how much Ravel can progress at Birmingham, and look forward to seeing him in a claret and blue shirt next season.
