I’m pretty sure they knew what they were doing with this post.
And I think it’s taken away somewhat from his big day.
I’m talking of course about Nico Gordon, who’s had a very busy week at St Andrew’s. Having signed his first professional deal on Friday, he made his first-team debut on Saturday, coming on as a sub against Hull City.
A 17-year-old defender, Gordon was actually number six in my list of young players to look out for in 2020/21, just failing to make the cut, and looks like he’s made a good start in getting some game time.
Should the club's young players get some game time at the end of this season?
But when the club decided to congratulate him on his achievement, as well they should, it seems as though the fan base was split with how to react to it. There were those who joined in the congratulations, whilst others were more fixated with the wording of the tweet itself.
I generally thought this was Bellingham signing a contract for a second then🤣

What about you? What did you make of Gordon’s debut? And do you think there will be more chances for the him and other youngsters going forward?
