3+1 contract which suggests he's highly rated.

Nice interview... Shame his aussie accent isnt abit stronger:judge:

For anyone interested here is an article about South Australian (ie the state of which Adelaide is the capital) accents -

Why do South Australians sound different to others Down Under?

There were a lot of English emigrated to the area around Elizabeth (north of Adelaide) in the 1950s and 60s to work in the motor car factories so I had always assumed that was the reason that that part of South Australia had a more English sounding accent.

Nice interview with Brook here. Speaks v well. He's looking like he's really stepped up a level this season, will be interesting to see if he starts to trouble the first team squad...

Scored twice including a very good second in the final game in Cyprus, when playing as a 9.

He is usually a wide forward or a number ten.

Surprises me a bit, would've thought a move on loan to National League/League Two makes more sense but I'm guessing it will be convenient for him with family and friends etc. Good luck to him
Yes, good luck to him. But the club has stepped up a few gears since we’ve signed him. Also it was one heck of a step up to make from where he came from.

Would he be a nailed-on starter at Adelaide? I'm not sure what the standard is like over there other than Daniel Sturridge is playing over there

He’s been one of our best players in the B team, has real quality. V surprised at this

A goal kick from Harrow Borough FC
I know Aussies turn up all over the world, but there must be 1 or 2 that get homesick. Probably worse in a pandemic. We’ve all seen how difficult Australia can be in the last few weeks. Decision taken for a ‘timeout’, and easier to be in a ‘bubble’ there, than over here.
I like him, and hope it’s not the end with BFC.

Maybe that's the case. Was disappointing to hear from MacFarlane though that he hasn't yet broken into the first team picture, for me he seems one of the more talented players in the B team but that seems to indicate the club don't feel the same. Hopefully he'll get some good first team minutes in Oz and come back but generally when these things happen it means they're only going one way..

I do not always think talent is enough. If they are not right type players/persons in TF and BR mind, they will not make their debut. Look at Mogensen, Adams and now Brooks who have all been incredible on the B team but never made their debut.

From what I've seen he looks decent, but not at the standard necessary to break into a Premier League squad. Hope it goes well for him in Adelaide.

Perhaps FCM is too close in quality to Brentford to pull this off but I wonder whether it would be optimal to have a Belgian team or something where we can sell high-potential players who we could get more for with more exposure but who wouldn’t be good enough to make it with us
