AndAt Ashton Gate, Manchester City reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, beating them easily (0-3) to Bristol. The trophy victory for one of the giants of the Premier League and Europe for the thirteenth place in the championship (the second) in which the 19-year-old “Wonder” shone. Alex Jay Scott (Guernsey, Channel Islands, UK, 2003) captivated Pep Guardiola.
Scott is a really good player and a great young talent. He is an amazing soccer player
“He’s a really good player and a great young talent. He’s a great footballer”, says the “cityzen” coach, fascinated by a versatile midfielder who looks, above all, like a midfielder thanks to his quality and collection ability. “He is a unique talent, admirable and unassuming temperament. Just enjoy playing soccer. I think it’s headed upwards. Keep going and be a great soccer player. “If they wanted him, they would have to pay a lot of money,” his coach Nigel Pearson admitted.

Newcastle, West Ham, Wolverhampton, Crystal Palace… They polled him, but Bristol City estimated him at €28m.. They don’t want to release “Guernsey Grealish”… who has moonlighted against their idol. “He’s my favorite player and to play against him was a dream,” said Scott, who was born and raised on the Channel Island where another genius like Matt Le Tissier came into the world. At the age of 16, the boy was already playing for the guys in the Guernsey de Octava club, which was headed by the former player. And in 2019 he jumped to the Bristol City Academy after ‘training’ with Southampton and Bournemouth youth. Since then, “Robins” has been enjoying a pearl.
Premiere in Bristol City at the age of 17
They made their (second) championship debut in April 2021 at the age of 17 and it became necessary. 39 appearances, four goals and two assists among all tournaments last season was his cover letter in the Elite. In this tournament, he has already equaled the number of matches (39), has surpassed the number of assists on goal (five) and still has time to improve on the goal scored. Meanwhile, he is already a regular player in the England Under-20s.
Reminds me of Grealish. She’s more of a mediator, but still takes possession of the ball, allows opponents to get close and then passes them as if they weren’t there.
“Scott is a midfielder, square by square, Gerrard-type, although I don’t want to compare him to him. He’s tall enough, he can run all day, he’s strong at tackling and good on the ball. It’s in a different category. Reminds me of Grealish when he was in the tournament. He’s a central midfielder, but he still holds the ball, lets opponents close in and then gets past them as if they weren’t there. I see him playing in one of the four or five ‘top’ teams in the Premier League,” explained teammate Cal Naismith on the Open Goal podcast.
Criticism surrendered to him. Ian Wright said: “I’m really looking forward to seeing him play against top-level footballers. As good as he is, I have high hopes for him for the future of the England team.” “He’s a top-class footballer because of the way he moves and controls the ball. He always looks relaxed.”. “I’m excited to see him play,” said Roy Keane. Scott player.
