Nothing necessarily. Just an example of how someone who has great potential at 15 can fail to amount to anything by the age of 18. There are hundreds of Femi Orengua's.


Absolutely that. Some players are great at 15 and then do not develop (or even go backwards) and some players at 18 go into non-league as they aren't good enough and then rise up the leagues as they develop and mature both physically and mentally.

I remember being in the tunnel preparing to do the Man of the Match presentation as Femi came on in that Luton game, and a desperate Mick Harford was having a lively conversation with the 4th official asking if 15 year olds were allowed to play in the cup...turns out they were!

Spent the last half an hour trying to make an anagram out of his name.

Blimey, it's harder than you think this lark!

Orange fits, but too many vowels left! :Facepalm:
