Reiss Nelson: Lionelson

Where have you seen this since his youth years?

I've watched him live at U23/Reserve level many times. He was head and shoulders above the rest when playing youth football. His close control and first touch and dribbling were top class. He was dominating games consistently. Injuries, confidence, and in a small way, his mentality has let him down.

Can you please read my question again:eyess:

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean?
He was asking whether Reiss has actually been able to consistently replicate his youth team success in first team football. He has had fleeting moments of said success but for multiple reasons hasn't been able to sustain it and barely got going last 2 seasons.

Oh I see... For me, it's mostly been his mental side that has let him down. He has tons of talent no doubt when his head his right. He's also been very unfirtunate with the timing of his injuries. He was begnning to have a good spell under Emery in the Europa league before he got injured then just seemed to fall off. Hopefully he is tactically more refined this season.

Getting ripped has done wonders for Nketiah, that boost of explosiveness opened up his link up game. Nelson should take a page out of his book and do the same. Explosiveness is a requirement for a player of his skillset.

With us not replacing Pépé, this is his last opportunity to make it here. Curious to see how he does in Europa and whether he gets minutes in the PL.

He needs to unleash that dog in him Marteneli has it , Eddie has it these guys want it Nelson doesn't want it enough.
Some guys just don't have that personality on the pitch. Nelson doesn't and I don't think it's something you can really change.

I have no hope for him being more than at best a low table level player, and I would consider that a significant success for him, tbh, personality has to be factored into ability and given his personality his ability or potential ability just isn't that great.

If it was that easy, every player with high potential would be world class.

Saying Reiss doesn't want it enough is a lazy football fan trope.

Exactly. You can teach a gifted player to do almost anything.

But you can't make a person someone they're not

He doesn't want it enough I don't see that in him if you do more power lol. Nelson can learn from guys like Marteneli ,Eddie but he chooses not.

Hopefully he leaves this season.

I need to see that dawg in him. He was the chosen one, and now he’s a nobody. He should take note from Nketiah and he can earn himself a new contract.
