    English Footballers who Could Still Come Good

    In a small attempt to lift the soon and gloom here is a thread to discuss which young, or youngish English football talents who could probably still wind up being world class, or at least shift into a higher gear.

    I would put John Stones, and Ross Barkley in this category. More hopes on Stones though.

    Luke Shaw will be an england player for years once he gets away from Mourinho.

    Elm, he do brood. And Oak, he do hate. But the Willow-man goes walking, If you stays out late.

    Harry Winks is the latest to kick off the hype cycle. Tbf he should probably get into the national team already given how badly Dier-Henderson is working out.

    I still think Derek Statham could be a better left back than Kenny Sansom.

    Do think Phil Jones is better than he gets credit for online. Chris Smalling on the other hand

    Gary Cahill. Only tried him 58 times and he is still crap. Sure he will come good at some stage though.

    I still believe Wilshere has the potential to come good and that we are on the right track to win the Premier League again.

    Sacrilege.

    That being said, Kenny had put on a few kilos last time I saw him, so you may have a point.

    There's one obvious argument for playing Winks and Dier behind Ali and Kane in the national team.

    Only if you can change Eriksen's nationality. For me Alli has been mediocre in an England shirt but because the media fawn over him, his place is never questioned
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I know what you mean, but maybe the presence of Sterling, Walker, Henderson and, more recently, Oxlade-Chamberlain has provided several worse performers than Alli in the England side.
    I think that, in time, it will help that he's now playing in his club role for England, instead of behind two forwards, but admittedly there was little evidence so far this season.
