    Shot was probably savable, but nice run and touch to get separation.

    How old is he now? I feel like this thread has been around since the Obama presidency.

    As far as I recall he was on the same youth team as Yueill. Akale's dad was the head coach and Yueill's the assistant. They were two best players, but he gap was huge. Akale was the star of YNTs and Yueill was close to the rosters, but never became a starter. Then they took two different paths.

    Just saw this tweet from his dad and thought it was quite a quality skill. At least he still grinding and plays like this...

    I don't mean that he stalled or something. He just took high reward/very high risk path. And though I appreciate his persistence, he should evaluate his opportunities, and maybe take a step back before moving forward again.

    Maybe he has. We, on this forum can only speculate. Hope he makes it this season. That skill was top draw!!!

    Someone tag me when this cat plays a meaningful game. Until then, I’ll be seeing y’all in the pro and prospective pro player threads.

    Started and played 68 in a 2 - 1 win over Levante to start the season. Will this guy ever leave Academy?

    Yes, and to clarify as well on that point. In Spain, the third division includes 80 teams divided by region. So in some ways the Spanish Third division is actually the Spanish 3rd-6th divisions. (the division below that in Spain has 360 teams)

    Akale discusses life on Villareal B. He awards himself three superlatives:

    Who’s the most skilful?

    Most skilful? On the team I’d have to say it’s between me and Pacheco

    Who’s the best cook?

    Ah that’s obvious, that’s me. See, if you follow me on Instagram, you can see that I post all my dinners and lunches and they’re quality.

    ...

    Who’s got the best dance moves?

    Me. I don’t think anybody else dances. Everyone else moves their hips but I’m the only one who does any dance moves.

    Thanks for sharing. He should have awarded himself a club-move 3 years ago

    Having been to many "dance" clubs in Spain. I don't doubt the last one in the least.

    Well, since football doesn’t seem to have much career opportunities, he can look to get into culinary school.

    Pretty sure he's making more than you or me.
