18-year-old Chelsea loanee named PFA Championship Player of the Month

Tammy gets his reward for his excellent start to the season.

If you somehow, somehow haven't heard about Tammy Abraham's exploits in the Championship with Bristol City in these last two months, then here's something you might like! And if you haven't been living under a rock and you have heard, well, you'll like it as well.

In the first month (and a half) of his first loan spell and proper foray into the senior professional game, the 18-year-old striker has been named PFA Fans' Championship Player of the Month for August/September.  Not wasting any time, is he?

Tammy Abraham is a name on many lips these days, with the youngster tied for top scorer in the English second tier with seven goals to his name.  He has ten in thirteen games in all competitions, including a goal in each round of the EFL Cup so far.

But wait, there's more!

Earlier today, Abraham also received his maiden call-up to the England Under-21 side, with Marcus Rashford presumably moving up into the senior set-up for the coming round of games.

Tammy is a type of striker who is likely to be termed as "poacher".  His strength lies in the positions he gets in, alongside his clinical finishing when it matters, of course,  He can provide a focal point for the attack but his ball-retention is an area for improvement, as is making better use of his physical tools to dominate aerially. Tammy is the sort of striker who doesn't need many chances to score, and whether against the run of play or as an impact substitute, will find the back of the net if the chance arises.

Tammy Abraham seems to be doing all the right things and the hype train is moving full steam.  May he keep his feet on the ground, his head out of the clouds, and keep on delivering like he's done through the first few weeks of the season.
