Lassie your anti England agenda is tiresome,

As for the above list, no doubt the majority of players named were plucked from playing Football Manager as opposed to actually watching a high number of these playing live on a weekly basis. 

Your list is full of players who aren't first choice for their current clubs or playing at small to middle of the roads ones, but you casually ignore the likes of Mount, Rashford, Trent, Wan Bassaka, Foden, Greenwood, Sancho, Abraham, Gomez, Chillwell etc are playing week in week out for there's.

It defies logic.

England have no hope, all those players are sh*te
John Egan is the next Baresi and Chiedzone Ogbene is the new Adama Traore though

What Anti English agenda?

I merely interpreted the original poster as saying England are the only team who have good young players coming through which I believe to be untrue.

I then stated a bunch of players from the nations they dismissed as who have been talked about as having bright futures.

Yes I play Football Manager but I also read and listen to non-English media so I've heard of those players through things like that.

The Guardian do a 100 young players to look out for list every year as do Four Four Two all the players i mentioned have appeared in those lists.

Jaysus. The boring spat in history, lads. I keep clicking in thinking that someone actually has something to say about best prospects.

Yeah, we actually have games to look forward to now. Plenty of Irish lads to discuss

You have a long history of discrediting England no matter what they do Wink

With all due respect any media outlet running the top 100 young players in Europe/The World aren't going to pick 35 to 40 players from the same country are they even if England per say had that amount.

Like it's all well and good plucking names from a computer game or a magazine, but lets face it the Premiership is the best league in the world and countless English born young players are performing unbelievably well, which simply cannot be ignored.

Anyhow moving on from this, we're gone way off topic Thumbs Up

Apologies for taking over the England thread but Alex Hunt starts for Sheffield Wednesday today. He was part of one of Tom Mohan's training camp squads last year. Has anyone seen him play/know much about him?
Geremi has let Kilbane in here, cross comes out to Holland, 1:1!!

All fannying around aside, I wonder did he even turn up for that squad ? I know he was called up but I don't recall ever seeing anything else about him in an Irish context.

You're right, his team mate Ciaran Brennan was in the same line-up. Brennan is on the bench today v QPR, Hunt is playing and has got booked in the first half. They're 2-0 up, Conor Masterson subbed already for QPR, injury I assume.

I don't think anyone is discrediting the fact that England has lots of players coming through. England always does. but there are french 17 years olds that you can't buy for 80 million at the moment as well. Some real freaks coming through there and in Germany etc  All the top tier nations have tonnes of players. I think there is nothing wrong with saying that. The proof is in underage results not the hype of Skysports and premier league etc where you have to have 5 English players.
 (I give them huge credit for that move) 

I watch a f**k tonne of football and honestly I look at the top Spanish or German clubs, etc. They are full of players from the own country. When I see top English teams jam packed full of English players I will believe they are going to do it soon. It is lees than 1/5 at Premier league top 6 and less that 1/3 overall the last time I checked. When it is 60%  like in Spain is the day it will likely become inevitable.
