Lewis, Pascal and Solly have done a brilliant job ably supported by a world cup winner and one of the best up and coming defensive midfielders in the world together with some wonderful young kids.

So have they peaked ? I suspect not :wink:

But we have another trinity soon to form, an ex-England, model-pro, 1,189 EPL appearances threesome to guide our younger boys through next season with skill, example setting and happy meals!

I’m really struggling to see how any of them could have a better season than this one. Maybe Dunk could. The other two have surely maximised every single ounce of their ability?

No, they haven't peaked.
Solly's going to come out like a rabbit out of the traps, Lewis is going to be buzzing from his England games & Pascal is going to be consistently Pascal. That does sound like I'm putting Pascal down, I'm not, he's brilliant, he's cool, calm & collected & goes under the radar for a lot of people. Especially members of the opposite team, which makes him even better! 🙂

Don't care.

I'd rather lose with them than win without them - until such time as THEY decide it's not in the squads best interest to play for the Albion.


We've had all this shite over the last 2 off seasons, with Groß, a third one would be incredibly disrespectful for a player who has only shown us respect.

The young players need the experienced ones to get them through a game.

And it's best not to think of it as a peak like Everest. More like Table Mountain. I expect a similar level of performance from all 3 next season.

I'd also add in Lallana. He'll certainly feature prominently next season and I expect a similar high level of performance to the ones we saw before his injury.

Do you think he may get a wasp in his track suit while sitting on the bench?

Table mountain isn’t as flat as it looks from afar when you’ve just climbed it in the searing heat

I think Solly has benefited enormously from being selected in one position and fully expect him to kick on now. Remember he is 28(?) which is peak age for his position. I hope the best is yet to come which is an awesome thought. Thinking about it the holy trinity could all be said to be peak age just now.

Now you're being silly, as that would mean the wasp was buzzing. In my world Lewis is going to be a happy buzzing bee scaring the opposition away. He will play every game, get MOTM each game & Southgate will be sacked as he didn't pick him sooner. I'm sticking with my alternative reality vision, until the first match & he's on the bench. :lolol:

I think the fact that RDZ has regularly mentioned them as important members of the squad shows you how highly he values them. Will all three of them be as good/consistent as this season? Who knows? I wouldn't put it past them. Solly comes back post-injury looking to pick up where he left off, Lewis is buoyed by international appearances and motivated to push harder and Pascal? Well, he'll just keep on doing what he's being doing since he arrived: assisting, scoring, Groß turning and generally being a bloody legend.
