    I saw that, surprised me as aren't they at St George's Park rather than our training ground? Great experience for him (even though it is 1/2 of a proper England Team)

    I wonder if we requested it on the off chance southgate might agree.

    At the rate people are pulling out, he'll get a game...

    And maybe that's the solution? If clubs are unwilling to play young English players, just stick them straight in against Germany!

    I was thinking this too, reminds me of Carrick. Just a bit more aggressive and a bit less two footed.

    Looks so good. Aggression tempered with technique and vision. Looks like he’ll have no problems physically either when he fills out a bit.

    I don't know if it changes anything but he should have an 'e' at the end of his surname

    I watched him play in the Victory Shield, I can only find 2 of the games on youtube. In general I do like him and he looks a very good player. He is one who catches the eye especially with his low socks and tall/stocky frame. Against NI I thought he came across as talented but very careless. He had an arrogance about him and strolled a bit but they clearly saw him as a threat. He would start running when the ball came close to him. He strangely reminded me of Ibrahimovic or Berbatov in that sense. He along with Okoflex were the most threatening players.

    Against Scotland he was better, and he was at the heart of all of their good moves, he has a powerful shot and carries the ball well. he actually played as a no.10 for ROI. He should some skill and good feet and a nasty side as he hacked Dembele (the smallest player on the field) in frustration.

    Overall I'm very excited by him, I think he would look good playing with our very talented academy players, I'd be interested to see how he plays as an actual 9. I can't be arsed to go through and pick out moments, but if you just click to half time in both those matches it will show very brief highlights. In the NI games he scores a pen, against Scotland his shot from outside the box hits the bar and then gets knocked in. You should be able to tell who he is as you watch but if you're not sure he is the no.9. Also against Scotalnd there was a moment where he stood up the defender on the side of the box, with some stepovers and chipped the ball which hit the post after going over the keepers head. The commentators also were very complimentary saying how everything goes through him and he is almost a one man team. Seems like good scouting so far.

    Both the boys from Ebbsfleet being moved on. Both lacking in technical ability compared to our boys but showed more grit.

    Got us 9/1 for a tidy £200 :) they didn’t have a price on top goalscorer unfortunately.But was looking for the Brazilian kid,but that info was wrong anyway as he never played.Interestingly saw a clip on twitter of club game his team was losing 1-3 he came on as sub and they won 4-3 :eek:think he is still 16.
