One minute we're moaning all our players in the academy are small, next it's Mourinho's only picking tall players.Cirkin still with seniors and Walcott as well.
I think Maghoma is as well. Jose just picking anyone tall lol.
Ye he's a good player, I know some don't like him but he's really talented and in a strong England age group, he's selected fairly consistently despite the standard stagnation. Under Poch he was never going to come through, possibly under Mourinho but unlikely, whether it's a loan or permanent it's a good move for him to get out and finally play some gamesWot. Wasn’t he one of our good ones?
His inconsistency has always been his biggest issue, but he is more of a flair player than Onomah, so will attempt a lot more things which might not come off. which causes more frustration, but I like that in him. Either way he is probably another grown weary of playing the same game and getting his motivation up so good on him for getting out and trying to find games. TOB should've done that ages agowow, wasn't expecting that [re. maghoma]. like @edson said, some days he can look like the best player on the field and other days the worst, very frustrating player but definitely has some talent.
i remember the commentator saying he should be in the first team, obviously a bit premature at that point but he was pretty decent in that tournament. he's a bit like a not as good version of onomah, though he has more natural ability in the attacking third than josh.
It is his weakness but when I watch him play I still think that there is more to come from him and he will get better and hopefully he finds half a yard of pace.Do you think he is quick enough to make it at the highest level? Was my one concern on the few occasions I have seen him.
Cirkin is a good size close to 6ft I’d say and built. Mourinho is definitely currently picking the physically stronger but I guess that’s understandable.One minute we're moaning all our players in the academy are small, next it's Mourinho's only picking tall players.
I don't think Cirkin is that tall, I'm trying to remember. Binks and Walcott are both about 6"2 though I reckon. Surprised Walcott in ahead of Binks but Walcott is a good CB in his own right.
I'm not saying he's small by any means. You're point as I understood is was that Mourinho is picking tall players and you mentioned Walcott who is quite tall for his age but then even he has been caught up, then Cirkin. Just saying I wouldn't say Mourinho is having a preference for tall players based on that. He's the same height as White, bit smaller then Parrott.Cirkin is a good size close to 6ft I’d say and built. Mourinho is definitely currently picking the physically stronger but I guess that’s understandable.
As far as I'm concerned I'd loan Binks out as he is physically ready, as well as Eyoma who should've been loaned out ages ago. Let Walcott and BLF play for the u23s. Loan out or move on Dinzeyi. And hopefully not waste Tanganga in the first team.With all the talk about CBs one CB who has gone down in the pecking that we should not yet give up on is BLF who is one of the best footballing CBs we have and it is a good thing that he is starting to play a lot better of late, let's hope he can bulk up a lot because it is what is slowing him down right now and not the lack of ability.
