Incredible stuff, to win this in the same year as winning with the under 20’s and under 19’s - I’ve never seen anything like it to be honest. Complete domination.

They were brilliant. Put this lot out instead of the usual bunch and I swear they wouldn't do any worse.
Here's hoping that our clubs are able to provide a route for success for these fine young players.

Won't happen at man city or chelsea. They have no interest bringing through youngsters into their first team at the moment, they'll just loan conintually and then sell them for profit.

The biggest barrier to the success of English football is not the quality of players but the quality of the coaches. Too many Tim Sherwood's who don't have a bloody clue how to organise a team.

If we don’t turn this into tangible results with the senior team. We need to get rid of everyone at the FA. Simple as that. Last team that had this domination of the age groups was Spain. And look what they have done. No excuses anymore. Make
It happen. And congrats to the boys. Fantastic comeback.

People in glass houses. Ye they might struggle but let's look at ourselves first. When I say you can make 4 different elevens from this age group that could win the Euros I'm not lying. Players we've had from this age group called up and play over last year.

Tasha Oakley-Boothe
Oliver Skipp
TJ Eyoma
Reo Griffiths
Brooklyn Lyons-Foster
Tariq Hinds*

Before we criticise City/Chelsea how many of the above do you expect us to bring through to warrant looking down at other clubs. We have 6 that have been deemed good enough, if we're lucky well see one play for us

Oakley Boothe already has to some degree.

The thing in favour of Spurs is Pochettino's willingness so far to push players. Winks is a prime example. Guardiola has said Foden will get some minutes soon. Chelsea, who knows if Conte even knew the names of these guys. The commentators said Brewster in line for a new contract when he gets back to Liverpool.

A lot depends on the players themselves. But it's always going to be tough in a rich league. These players need to be better than anyone the club could buy and catch the eye of the manager. It's a low-risk league for the clubs most of these guys play at.

Don't you worry, the PL's lack of opportunity, the idiocy within the senior England coaching set-up and OTT media hype and criticism will have this creativity, competitiveness, and success beaten out of these youngsters in no time.

I don’t really agree, if the talent and desire’s there then make allowances for ups and downs in their here and performances if it’s for a greater good, IMO of course
