If you look at the EPL top scorers of all time, how many were known for their killer pace -

Top 15: 

Shearer

Lampard
Henry -  YES
Fowler 
Defoe 
Owen - YES
Ferdinand 
Sherringham 
Kane 
RVP
JFH
Roberto Keane 

Some had great pace over short distances: Aguero, Fowler etc

But Shearer, Rooney, Teddy, Robbie Big Les etc were not super fast.


Cole, Aguero, Fowler, Defoe, Ferdinand, and Keane all had pace too, at least over a short distance. Rooney was extremely fast too, especially in his youth, I'd actually argue it was the loss of that explosive power that led to his dramatic decline.

Sheringham is probably the only outright "slow" player on that list, which says something.
 
And Teddy wasn't really a striker. A proper 10. A class act who would still be at a high level today.
 
Kane is very much an anomaly.
David Connolly was seen as the next big thing in the 90s.

Stokes has 4 league titles, Scottish Cups with Celtic and Hibs, and League Cups.

He's played in the CL and EL too.

Parrott has a nice watch.

A lot of ireland hopes rest with parrott living up to his potential. He's been able to score at all age levels hes played so far so hopefully he can be a key player for ireland

I take all this hype about some good player playing well at underage levels with a pinch of salt.  I've seen numerous players who were going to be the next big thing and flopped at senior level.  And there's other factors as well which I don't think he will amount to much.

How's Connor Clifford doing these days?

Think Parrott is a level above any uoung lad we have ever had at underage, he scored 4 goals in a Uefa Youth league game when he was 2 years below that age. Different level of talent we have seen at that level in recent year including Jack Byrne who done well at City.

Jack Byrne played 0 games at City.

Massive difference between youth and senior level. Loads of players have excelled at youth level and never made the step.

Look we just have to assume that he wont become a top player, we never produce them. If he surprises us that's great though.
