    How does Maddison miss out when Ward-Prowse and Barkley get in.... weird

    He would be a shoe in for me.
    I have to give it to you Mr Hughton, you are a far better Manager than I ever thought.

      Other than Sterling and Kane (Sancho maybe?), not one player in that selection is the top player for their club.

      There isn't a CB in that squad who is worse than Dunk. Southgate has given him a chance and he's on the radar. That's the best he can expect for now.
      Hughton's army is on it's way!
      Hughton's army is here to stay!
      And I would rather be anywhere else but in its way!

      A lot of good CBs all quite similar standard. Dunk will have to show he's a step above to get a chance, not similar. Otherwise managers go with who they know.

      We also have a lot of players for whom CB is a secondary position, including in that squad so it's going to be tough. I'd love to see him do it but will take time. This year he possibly slipped behind his clubmate Duffy let alone the other names. Harsh to say he deteriorated but perhaps he didn't improve by as much as some others this season. It's natural for progress to go up, level off, then go up again so let's hope it's just that pattern.

      Not the most inspiring midfield in the world.

      Ward-Prowse I like, he has some creativity and can clearly hit a decent free-kick. Barkley is a weird one; living off a reputation of being quality when he was at Everton, but in my mind hasn't progressed or done anything of note for a long time.

      You can't even read and yet you respond. It's really quite sad. Like a beached whale desperately thrashing about on a beach, except there's no one willing to push you back into the sea. Because the whale is a ****.

      You think Sterling is Man City's top player?! I wouldn't even have him in the top 5. He's deadly from 6 yards, hence his 20odd goals this season but he's hardly a top player. Totally anonymous at the Amex, unlike the brilliant Silvas, and then you have to remember Aguero, De Bruyne, Laporte, Gundogan... The squad is ridiculous.

      Agree.

      Rather depressingly I now think we’re not allowed to dislike Sterling because of the racism issues he has faced.

      If Albion get called out for sacking a black manager, how long before booing a black player is deemed racist by rent a quote politicians and journos?

      I think jt’s Southgate’s 4-3-3 system.

      He’s an attacking midfielder/No.10/Secondary Striker style player. I don’t see any room for one of those.

      Begs the question why Dele Alli is there for this reason. Been bang average this season.
