From the limited I’ve seen, he is too small and lightweight to make it at the top couple of levels. (He’s no Messi or Silva or even Sterling). League one or two he may make it. Think his career could hinge on this loan, so best of luck to him.

I think some of these comments are harsh to say the least, he’s probably the most talented young footballer I’ve seen emerge from the academy, it’s close between him and Grealish, I think RHM is that good. Not only that, he’s a very nice lad and funny, he’s been on a contract here since he was 13 years old, that’s how highly rated he is, I think he’s brilliant and a very nice lad to boot, I think he will be great for Cambridge 

But is he good looking? 😄

I think he has looked great on the short cameos I've seen him, would have liked to see him be given a run in the side as a wide forward. Good if he gets gmae time out on loan though, best of luck and come back soon even better please!

If he manages to remain injury free i suspect some people in here will have to prepare for some humble pie in a year's time. We'll see.

He won’t make it at Villa or this level in my view. 

Sadly I agree. 

Happy he is going on loan though, as a club our youth policy has been awful for a number of years, to many have just stagnated in the youth set up. We need to get more of these kids out on loan to either show they could be of use to the first team, or showcase themselves for sale.

This is a great move for both parties.

He will learn so much at that level.

I still think that he is a bit too lightweight to play up front.

I can see him playing as a wide forward IF he develops his game.

He should look at players like Mane.

That’s a fairly sizeable caveat.

No smaller than Defoe and looks sharp at U23. Will he make it? Who knows but loans like this will make it a lot easier to see. Good luck .

Ive watched loads of him at u23 level and for me, at that level, he doesnt look anywhere near as good asthe moore brothers, vassell or even gabby.

I dont know what managers have seen in him to make them think he had a big future, but i certainly dont see it, and would be very surprised if he ever plays regularly at a decent level.

No it won’t, I would guess he’ll get injured like he always does.

I hope I’m wrong .

All he needs is a run of games, you’ll see how good he is

I'll just hide behind his injury record if I'm wrong 😉

Straight into the starting 11 today so will be interesting to see how he gets on.

I’m at the game so I’ll let you know... he hasn’t injured himself in the warm up...

That looks pretty good for a League 2 stadium. I was imagining a pitch full of dogs and chickens

They would have been more interesting to watch, dire game and terrible standard. As for RHM he looked no better than anyone on the pitch.
