    Lallana?

    Def think winks has to start, Dier a long side him? Amazing how we lack center half’s these days.

    Southgate isn't exactly spoilt for choice of goalies, either.

    This shows that one doesn't need to play talent in the 1st team immediately when they show some talent at an early age. Poch was patient in bringing in Winks, nurturing him slowly into the 1st team.
    So, have trust in Pochettino regarding other academy stand outs: I am sure Poch knows when it's best to bring them into the 1st team.
    PS! I read on Spursodssey quite some non-flattering stuff about Edwards, from people "knew" him.

    What a shame that sterling hasn't progressed. Thought he could be englands eriksen.

    Sterling has never been anything like Eriksen...he is a slightly better Townsend

    Cahill
    McGuire

    Trippier
    Barklay
    Dier
    Winks
    Rose

    Dele
    Kane.

    That's a good look.

    He never had the intelligence to dictate play but he had the quick feet and could pick a short pass. Was just hoping he gain the intelligence.

    They are different players: Sterling is a wide forward while Eriksen is a playmaker.
    Sterling looked like a world beater when he came onto the scene but I think his attitude, together with injuries, have let him down.
  11. Lilbaz
    That's what i meant. When he was at liverpool it looked like he could become an eriksen but he didn't. It's partly why city paid so much for him.
  12. guiltyparty
    This is a joke right? I'm a bit slow today

    Sterling's having the season of his life and has never been like Eriksen

    Think I'd put emotion to one side and use Walker more than Trips.
    Southgate a fucking useless wet blanket though so we'll go out with a wimper in the group stage anyway.

    Hart

    Stones
    Dier
    Smalling

    Walker
    Henderson
    Winks
    Lallana
    Rose

    Alli
    Kane

    Should have a very strong and well balanced team there, no reason they shouldn't do very well if they can get over the mental block at tournaments
  15. Gaz_Gammon
    Walker will start if fit.
  16. JAYSTAR
    Maybe. I was suggesting a team I hope Southgate will be considering, now that Delph is back for Man City and Trippier is playing for the best team in the world.... ;)

    To be honest, I prefer the way we play with two up top at Spurs and given that Barkley will be playing at CM for us soon (hopefully) - the England team could easily have 7 Spurs players in the first 11!

    Hart
    Stones Dier Cahill
    Trippier Barkley Winks Alli Rose
    Kane Rashford

    I'm not sure. Southgate strikes me as the most intelligent england manager in my lifetime. He may be somewhat monotone and soft, but intelligence will carry you a long way in life.

    I'd rather we kept the level of expectation down. The boy's been outstanding, especially in the 2 games against RM, but he's learning & needs to be given the opportunity to just keep doing what he's doing, learning/developing, without the pressure of us saying he's going to be this or that.

    The truth is we won't know what he is for at least 2 season or so, but if he continues as he is we could have a very good player on our hands.
