    Ive said similar myself,i see him as first team material in the not too distant.He has the physique,strength,awareness and technique to do well,especially given the lack of other talent/options in his position.
    Given game time,he could easily be another 'wan bisaka'

    Agree, the only con is that he’s looks a little small

    He isn't the biggest but i don't think he has to be,his style,speed,athleticism and ability on the ball are his strengths.In terms of his size....he's similar to Danny Rose from what i can tell,and(other than being a horrible little fucker) he has done ok for himself.

    Yeah, he looks like a fantastic talent. He’s great defensively, but also very good offensively. Has played RW a couple times, and also LB. Incredibly quick, great on the ball, good passing, quite strong for his size, good defensively and his crossing is also really good, which is something that Walker lacks. Hope he goes on the preseason tour. A couple of Frimpong, Harwood-Bellis, Garcia and Doyle should be in contention to start some cup games next year

    I see Doyle and Harwood Bellis as potential regulars and the spine of a future England team.I know it's early days but both have everything to succeed and they could save us a fortune.They may well also dig us out of any probable future transfer ban.

    Add Foden to the mix and the initial dream of youth integration is very realistic.

    Not sure this is the right thread for it but all the same the Irish media, including the Irish u21 manager, were very complimentary towards Joe Hodge, MOM in Ireland’s 1-1 draw with Belgium in the U17 European Championships.
