    Lampard like Sterling in the other thread is a dirty word round these parts. Much like Henderson, H Redknapp, Parker, etc. Englishmen are underrated on this forum rather than the opposite (them being overrated is often thrown about).

    90%? If he's 50% as good as Lampard I'll be happy.

    I never got the anti-Lampard thing (apart from the Chav connection of course), always thought he was a very good player.
    And he went up in my estimation when he phoned into LBC to tear a strip off the talk-show presenter who was slating him about his separation from his then-wife and 'abandonment' of his daughters. Told him you don't know me, you don't know my family, you have no idea what you're talking about. Or something like that.

    I like Parker and Redknapp is fine as long as you have a chairman who does not let him spend.

    Good player and nice man. Seems to hate us though.

    Most noise I ever made at the lane was constantly for 90 minutes chanting "you cost England the world cup" I think having someone to hate is important.

    Frank was quality although I couldn’t ever see him playing a holding role
    But you don’t score as many goals as he did without being top drawer

    Quality assist by Devine tonight for what turned out to be England U19s' winner against Israel U19s.

    He's got a wicked corner kick on him, assisted both goals tonight.

    Looks like he's had a right old growth spurt.
    I've only really seen him before in the Marine game, where he looked squat and compact...he's stretched out a bit now, looks a proper athlete.

    We really must get him a loan to a good football team who will play him, he's far too good to play age level football with us.

    We may keep him here this season so he is classed as club trained. Then loan him next season.

    Like Skipp he stand out at that level and would benefit from having a greater challenge in terms of physicality and mentally, he has a hunger for the game and needs to be pushed. The problem is finding the right club, no point going anywhere as a bench warmer like John who waste 6 months at Charlton.

    That makes sense in terms of qualification, I'd have him train with 1st team.

    I knew a half decent euro under 19’s against kids his own age would get you lot over hyping another youngster, you just can’t control yourselves can you? :D

    I think he's well worth the hype.

    That's not to say that he will become a great player, or even a very good one.

    He stands out because he has the tools
    Some players look great because their size or speed so shine at youth levels
    He stands out because he has everything
    His passing is very very good
    He can shoot
    He has a great work rate
    He is a high quality package
