    My views on Independent article about Bundesliga attracting English talent

    I think it's the level of coaching that mainly contributes to the best players being at the best clubs. I'm sure there are some underhand tactics but even if they didn't offer extra incentive to parents, I'd be surprised if you didn't take the offer to join City or Chelsea because their coaching...

    Speaking of who, he is certainly building himself a highlight reel at such a young age

    Cheers Rob and done. Also, I'm not that creative but if you do think of a way to utilise the youth knowledge here I'd be happy to get involved

    My views on Independent article about Bundesliga attracting English talent

    Basically a post I made in the Youth Thread, hope some find it interesting, and I guess takes the debate away from the thread which can frustrate some. This is a great article with quotes from parents, scouts, and some coaches...

    Sterling is more Defoe like, he is physically up to the task and as you say a hard worker, but like @Spurzinho I generally have preferred Harrison but he has stagnated and just returning from injury so I doubt he'd be upto the task now. Plus if what he is alluding to is true then I'd expect him...

    I always liked Georgiou and think I have said multiple times he is one of our most effective wingers, but he would never be a star, but he would do a good job. It's why I would much rather we focus on trying to bring through Edwards if we have to bring through one as the difference in ability is...

    I caught the 2nd half and he looked good out there. He's attempting to track back and disrupt but it obviously isn't his forte, however with the ball I am always amazed how someone so small can beat a man so easily, without having to outmuscle them or even drop a skill. The way he took his goal...

    Sounds like we ended up suffering because of injuries. They had players on the bench that could chnage the game, whereas we didn't. Regardless of how we would all have set out the starting eleven, having Markanday and Richards available would have meant that going into extra time we would have...

    Lol I don't know, mixed up dates had other commitments. Shame. Shame. Shame.

    Cheers. Would argue Thorpe should be on bench instead of Poch or Cooper

    Unsurpsingly strong Arsenal team. Wish I was there

    I assume Markanday and Richards are injured as I can't understand why neither would be on the bench. I'd argue Markanday should start too if he was available
