    Ive had a ban. Jesse doing ok but still didnt go to the Euros. He is ok for San Marino and Faroes.

    Still think Cook is better than Stockton....i remember relief from you when we got Cook and Stockton uturned :joy::joy::joy::joy:

    Welcome back Sergio. :thumbup:

    I think Cook is doing OK for us. About as well as any league two lone forward can do in a team starving him of support and clear cut chances anyway.

    Stockton is flying though, it'll be interesting if he can maintain it now as that's something he's not done in his career to date.

    Bowen Watch: 2 goals tonight.
    Lingard Watch: 8 minutes against Villa in the cup.

    5 goals and 12 assists this season. Gareth will be watching.....

    Well Rashford is absolute dross and Sancho hasnt found his feet so opportunities for Bowen to find a place in the next England squad.

    He is sensational. I called this when he was back at Hull. Thought he was a player then.

    Quite right.

    And if Man U weren't wasting his talents on the bench, Jesse would be there with him.

    5 goals & 7 assists in PL this season, more than Sancho, Rashford & Grealish combined

    All 3 at their best are better than Bowen though.

    Having said that, the national team to a certain extent, should be looking at players on form so Bowen could get a look in.

    We've still a wealth of talent in the wide areas though so he's still a massive amount of work to do if he wants to be a regular.

    on current form is key, though I still don't see Southgate picking him

    On current form Kane wouldn’t get in our team never mind the national team.

    It might depend if he sees him as having a chance of making the WC squad.

    If he thinks it's too late then I'd tend to agree with you but if it's a possibility (and with a few out of form it should be) then he needs to have a look sooner rather than later.

    Who knows, there's usually one surprise pick that makes a late charge.

    I see Bowen as a bit different from the other wingers in the England squad. Sterling, Sako and Sancho are all quick and tricksy but lightweight. Bowen is stronger and more direct. He (eg) would give a different option off the bench when others aren't cutting it.

    Rashford has been dross for a while now. This season and last season at least - ask any Man Utd fan and they would find it hard to disgaree. Sancho is struggling to adapt but hopefully finds his feet. Jesse is nearly 30 and his career pretty much stop start. Opportunities there for a wide role as Emile Smith Rowe showed recently.

    Rashford needs to find his feet or he could easily end up like Dele Alli. In limbo and miles down the pecking order.

    On current form, Bowen should walk into the England team. Needs to carry it through to March for England role though.

    Don't know what he was thinking in added time yesterday though. Managed to chest the ball over the bar from point blank range. If he'd headed it he couldn't miss.

    And Bowen just continues and continues...

    Sancho - improving but a long way off
    Rashford - terrible. Utter crap for a long time.
    Grealish - not pulling up any trees.
    Sterling - class on his day. Had some tough spells but hit good form recently.
    Saka - very good player.
    Smith-Rowe - gone off the boil recently. Lost his place.
    Lingard - anyone remember him?

    Bowen has been the most consistent and best English winger in the PL this season.

    Can't really argue at the minute Serg. Bowen had certainly earned his chance this season.

    Sterling, Saka and Bowen the only 3 in there on merit imo. Jack offers something different. Id go Sancho over Rashford at the mo.

    Harvey Elliot could be in with a shout next season. Tad early just now I think.

    I went to the Liverpool Cardiff cup game last week and apart from Jota Liverpool were pretty unimpressive and laboured going forward.

    Then they made changes and Elliot absolutely lit up the place. Everything he did was sharp and snappy and he matched it with work rate and energy.

    First time I've seen him but I was really impressed and he easily outshone his older, more experienced peers.
