I wonder if Mainoo will get an England call up soon?

If he continues to play like he is, you would think he would make the Euros this summer.

I suspect he will if he carries on with the form he is showing.

Mind you, would prefer he has a good break this summer, let's not go putting too much on him too soon.

Look how city managed foden, that was done very well.

Same here hope they leave him alone and the boy gets a good summer break. special player.

I can see rice mainoo Bellingham being England midfield for next 10 years and imo that will start in the summer.

03 Feb 2024 15:56:21
I do hope that they give him the summer off. Hiwever with Ghana potentially approaching the player about switching nationality, it may promote Southgate to pick him. Although his love child Philips is now getting game time at West Ham.

I can too Ken, and if they all reach their potential it'll probably be the best midfield in international football.

Never been a better chance for England to actually win something at international level then what they will have over the next 5-8 years.

With players like Bellingham, Rice and Mainoo in midfield, with Foden and Saka creating chances in attack.

Still probably need a good striker to take over from Kane in a few years time. Goalkeepers seems weird, collectively a decent bunch of keepers and some depth, but none really standout as outstanding. Defence could be where it falls down, some talented young players in Colwill, Guehi, and Branthwaite who could step up to take over from Stones. Yet many promising young defenders never reach their potential, its a position that relies a lot on experience and depending on who they play for and how they develop its hard to rely on them reaching that potential. Also can they find a combination that works?

Maguire isn't a great player, but he works well for England alongside Stones.

Fullback is a weird one as well, who'll take over from Shaw/ Chilwell at LB as I'm not seeing many outstanding young candidates. RB is a weird one, James is probably one of the best RB's in the world, but just can't stay fit, TAA should be part of the England set up but just doesn't get picked (That might change when Southgate steps aside) . Walker and Trippier are probably going to their last tournament this summer. While Rico Lewis at City and Tino Livramento at Newcastle both look like interesting young players who could step up.

In defence is where you'll see a lot of change for England over the next few years, Stones, Maguire, Dunk, Walker, Trippier and Shaw will all likely need phasing out. How that next crop coming through develop will likely play a big role in England's chances of winning something.

England lack someone in midfield who is comfortable on the ball and can dictate the game, especially if Bellingham takes up a more advance role as he is with madrid.

So would not be surprised if Mainoo is called up, seems to have a good head on his shoulders like Saka who Southgate also trusted at a young age.

No way Southgate puts him ahead of Phillips, but I fully agree with the comments about a Rice / Mainoo / Bellingham midfield 3. That’s a real force on paper, and looks a lot more balanced than the last time England had 3 incredible centre mids with Scholes, Lampard and Gerrard.

03 Feb 2024 20:11:15
The kid has just broken through, he isn't getting called up, give it a rest. Yes Ghana want him, but I am sure he is getting advice from friends, family, and the club. He is a young boy, there is no rush.

03 Feb 2024 20:20:38
Every tournament there’s normally a ‘wildcard’ that gets taken. No surprise to see him in there. I agree that with Rice, Bellingham, and Mainoo……. wow, that’s some midfield!

04 Feb 2024 08:34:35
After watching motd last night if Southgate had anything about him he’d be looking at Barkley ahead of Phillips and Henderson! Playing well! Not that I think he’ll start but should be in squad on merit ahead of those two!

04 Feb 2024 11:52:44
Woah, a winner against Wolves and he's the mainstay in the England team for the next decade! At ease, let's let him continue to grow into our new-look team first before he goes into that circus.

Nothing wrong with bigging our players up instead of knocking them down for a change.
