I see we have allegedly agreed to sign Francis Jacobs from Orange County.
Youngest ever professional in US soccer at 14.
He has potential to go all the way in game.
This will further enhance our profile in US.

{Ed001's Note - he was on loan to them from you anyway.}

Probably leave for 200k to the epl in a couple of years of now, seems to be the thing now.

22 Feb 2021 11:40:24
No Ed. I don’t think so. American born and bread only 15 so we could not sign him at that age
He guested for us in Alkass tourney in Doha last year.

{Ed001's Note - not what was reported by the TMS when he joined them. I would assume FIFA would know and the TMS is their system.}

22 Feb 2021 11:46:40
Was he Ed001? I could be wrong, but I think he's their player who has played for our youth side, but only as a guest?
This signing is all down to our partnership with Orange County.

{Ed001's Note - it may have been a mistake on the TMS due to not having the right set up to deal with these kind of youth moves, but they definitely said he moved to them on loan from Rangers. I remember it well from doing the news articles.}

22 Feb 2021 12:37:15
Don’t think he was Ed, he was born in California and played for a junior team called Irvine Strikers before signing with Orange County. Never been on our books up till this point.

{Ed001's Note - as I say I can only go on what FIFA said on their TMS. If that is wrong then I am sorry for giving duff info.}

22 Feb 2021 13:30:15
Need to google it Ed and guys, I'll have a go as well.

Hi Ed and guys,

orangecountysoccer. com/ news_article/ show/ 1091911

Under 16 training rangers.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, it must just have been an error in the FIFA TMS system as it is not built to handle youth transfers. I am guessing, but I would think they had to transfer registration for him to play out in Qatar and then transfer it back. The system probably was confused by the movement.} Become a Patron!

The boys got a UK passport so signing ain't a problem.

22 Feb 2021 14:42:16
Can’t see anything say he was on loan to them from us but doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things hopefully he becomes a good one.

22 Feb 2021 15:49:03
Exactly kJ does not matter, we get a player with google potential.

22 Feb 2021 16:03:04
DD, I’m not saying you’re wrong, but how has he got a Uk passport at 16, and as John says he’s born n bred in California,

Not saying your wrong though, just seem strange,

Am I the only one here that detects a certain keenness here to play the gotcha card to the Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair, I think they are right and the TMS had made a mistake. It does happen from time to time. It is the most reliable place to get transfer info, but it is not perfect. I do remember at the time thinking it was an oddity that a player that age could be loaned out and asked Ed002 if it would be legal. There were actually a few players listed as going on loan to Orange County from Rangers as part of the tie-in, he is just the only one I can remember due to the youngest pro thing as it broke Freddy Adu's record and I was working on an article on Adu at the time. I wish I could remember the others that were listed as going on loan so I could check and see if any of them actually were.}

22 Feb 2021 16:50:33
Thanks Ed001, Let’s hope young Jacobs is stronger on achievement and delivery and less on hype than Adu ultimately proved to be.

{Ed001's Note - it is all up to him to decide that. So long as he works hard he will be fine. I doubt he will be able to sell a hoover on twitter with quite as much class as Adu though. I can imagine him doing movie reviews and assigning them lasagne ratings though. I reckon that could be the future now that garlic bread has become the present.}

22 Feb 2021 16:59:30
I agree Ed001, no hoover selling on Twitter. Hoovering restricted to league titles and cups. touché Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - nice! I like that.} Become a Patron!

He is the American clubs player but in 2019 he played for us in the alkaas cup. He will sign when he turns 16. Think that he will be the start of some American players with decent potential.

22 Feb 2021 20:29:47
Quite sure none of us on here are trying to play a gotcha card Bankie mate, so yes your the only one on here who thinks that.

The Ed's are entitled to air what they believe and give their advice like the rest of us and be respected for that surely.

22 Feb 2021 21:20:19
Good post Bluebilly.

22 Feb 2021 23:51:08
if he's no good at selling hoovers, he will just have to suck it up and move on
theres bound to be a vacuum needing filled somewhere, when the dust settles
he was carpetted in his last job but it was a dirty job anyway

all sharks in that game so roll on son

and don't let them pull the rug from under you.
