Completely agree with that.
Chelsea appear to have gone out and got physically big specimens who also happen to be quite technically proficient (or good coaching did the latter part).
Loftus-Cheek is 21 years old and 6' 3", Diaz and Foden aren't ever going to be anywhere close to his size and weight.
This. Those attributes are adaptable across most major teams nowadays too.
Look at Pedro this season.
This worries me but hopefully playing well above their age group will help them. If they win the Cup it might finally begin the process of our Academy players graduating to the first team.
Natural development is really what it's all about and alongside that he will do plenty of strength conditioning/gym work. As TS says he is just small at the moment and will develop with age but he is a gifted footballer
In terms of size,how does ICP compare to the growth hormone assisted Messi at a similar age?
I was surprised to see him not called up to the U17 England team the other week considering he has played with that group of players in the U16 team.
England cannot afford to lose out on such a talented player to Colombia.
And to think we can thank Fifa for the opportunity to sign him :)
It's most likely cos he's not been a regular this year for City. He's behind Sancho in his favoured position. No shame in that of course.
I just hope England don't lose him because we don't tend to produce great number ten's in this country.
Scholes was the last great number ten we had.
