I have only seen bits of Sam Shashoua and always thought he looked looked a nifty player, but for those that have seen more of both brothers, do people think they have what it takes to eventually make the step up with us and which, if ether, has the greater potential.
Sam could play for our first team. Not sure about the comparisons I've read of him on here but I don't really have a similar player in mind. He is very good, tricky but he is looking stronger which helps.
The thing with Armando is he is more of an all round good player. This season he has really stepped up. After he on the best player at the PL tournament at u14 level I think, which would have been for the 00/01 age group I was really watching him to see how he played but he never quite caught the eye. This year again he isn't 'standing out'but is at the same time. Hard to compare him to Sam. Sam's performances for us at this age group were excellent and got him an England call up, and rightly so, before he stagnated. I think he may have also played some u23s games. Armando won't play any u23s games anytime soon as he is even smaller than Sam and plays CM. He also isn't going to get called up for England as he is in the 00 age group so again would be harsh to judge him on that. I think at the moment Armando is looking very classy if he continues on this trajectory and puts on some wait he'd be more than good enough to play first team level.
He also has the most assists in the u18 PL this year.
