Hopefully the lad can really kick on under the guidance of our ever improving staff and set up and become a really funny, handsome and lovely young man.

I know this sounds rich coming from me but I think it is more important to be a nice, ugly person than a beautiful, horrrible one

Wait this one is not one of the best prospects at the Albion? Have we finished taking all their best young talent now?

We need to let them re-stock first. I'm sure we will be back shopping in Sandwell before too long!

Just googled him some reports say he's an attacking wide player another say he's a left back?

Why did he leave Chelsea? Says he's joined from Welling United.

According to someone who posts on another forum he turned a contract offer with Chelsea because he thought that he could get a better offer elsewhere, this poster works for Albion's academy, and posted this just after we played them, so I'm guessing he might have got that information whilst at the game.

from what i can gather he played as an attacking left back at Chelsea youth level, but he has come on trial for us and we defo played him as a winger in all the games i saw, but he is described as a "versatile left sided player".

Frith was at Welling Utd before he joined Chelsea in in roughly May 2021, i have no idea how his contract expired or such like to allow him to trial with us, did they mutually cancel it?, dunno.

 

Edit: he was on Chelsea's release list in June 2021, so i assume mutual termination?

Based on nothing more than watching him in a couple of those games, he seems like a classic 'rough diamond' in that he has lovely skill, nice ball control, bags of confidence, but also seems to take unnecessary risks, move out of position, and lose the ball in dangerous places. But I suppose those things are easier to teach than the raw talent stuff.

Have you seen him play MotoMkali?

Watched a few of the games for us he's played in. Seems to have lots of skill but is a very heads down player and focused on beating his man rather than picking a pass.

I don't think Frith was ever really a left-back as such, it seems he played there once for Chelsea and because of that and very little in the way of other information to go by, some of the stat websites such as transfermarkt, declared left-back as his position. But he's very much a winger, it's where he's played all his games for us and where he played all but one of his games for Chelsea.

So that is who it was. I was watching the highlights without commentary and could not figure who it was. Seems to be doing well. Have we signed him, or do we think we will do.

Yep signed. Details at the top of this page.
