>your team missed the chance to sign the Messi of our generation
You say this about every young English player. Was Harry Kane a one season wonder? No. Raheem Sterling is doing alright, as is Stones. What makes you think Alli will suddenly become shit?
>because it happens to all English players
it clearly doesn't though
he's scored about 4 proper good goals this season for club and country
and his temper is bloody great he's not cocky about it he just loves the game. in his post match interview he said about his goal "yeah it was a great pass to me, all I did was take a touch and slot it in'
you don't get players that modest anymore
he's already better than literally every player japan has ever produced. no need to be mad about it though lad
he wasn't even looking at him, he probably was meant to throw it at him maliciously, but not into his face
Poch has got him whipped anyway, I've seen him grab Pele Alli's face and calm him down instantly when he's got into scraps before
Unironically the best young midfielder in the world right now.
Barkley, Alli, Sterling, Shaw, Stones. What an amazing crop of players we have coming through. England's dominance of world football will be superb
>idolizes Steven Gerrard
>was willing to play for Liverpool
>Brendan Rodgers met personally with him to discuss terms
Still not sure what happened
White British mum, African dad. Dad left soon after he was born. He's the English Obama.
Difference being that Alli's white mum was an alcoholic so she handed him over to the parents of another kid at MK Dons when Alli was 13. So he's basically got three white parents and one black parent.
I understand why you say that, but still, I would be fucking happy if Alli was french, I don't think anything Pogba does that he doesn't do, and Pogba is hyped by every fucking one here as a future Ballon d'Or
TEAM OF THE YEAR 2019
I never said Pogba wasn't great.
It's just that I see Alli doing everything Pogba does in a tougher league.
Fekir was GOAT before his injury;
He babysitted Lacazette into scoring 27 goals in 31 matches. Without him he scored like 7 goals.
But I agree I could totally put Sterling there behind Neymar.
Like the other guy said, he's playing at top level since september, so let's wait next season before claiming things like that, but yeah he clearly shows the potential to be a crack.
>football talent only beings once you enter the national spotlight
yeah let's just ignore that he's been identified by people whose job it is to identify talent from a young age and been playing to this level all of his career. let's just ignore the things that he's doing on the pitch currently because of some arbitrary measure of time for the point at which he's been playing well on television long enough to give him any praise
in fact, we should shun him from football entirely. he's clearly just terrible and should quit the game.
fuck off abdullah.
France still has a lot young talent aren't pure pacebabbies
I ain't saying Dele Alli is shit, jesus.
I'm just saying a player that's been good for half a season will naturally be rated lower than a player that has been good for a longer period of time. I mean I don't think it's unreasonable to claim most clubs would rather buy Rooney for the same price than Vardy.
For a moment there I thought this was the French young talent, I almost got mad.
Then I realized that I was wrong.
And yeah, French has a lot of potential. I hope to see it grow into it's fruition.
>He dominated the league at some point
Payet has been better in his short than Ben Arfa had at any stage of his career in England
It only lasted 3 months each time but it happened, you have a really short memory.
Ben Arfa when fit and motivated is simply amazing. The guy wasted a potentially ballon d'or winning career.
>one good goal
can't wait for the english press to kill this kids career
>any player coming through spurs' system
>succeeding within 18 months of being identified as being 'world class'
go home you are drunk
You are american your opinion when it comes to football is not valid and discarded
They were talking about Dele Alli on Match of the Day 2 earlier, and they showed some tweets about him. One guy said, "He has the potential to be a Real Madrid player."
>There is an actual person out there who is that much of a cuckold
The jealous nature of johnny foreigner never ceases to amaze me.
England is the ONLY country producing young players who have been good for more than one season.
Sterling has been world class for nearly 3 years
Kane has been a top striker for 1 and a half years
Alli was world class at MK Dons and still is now
Even guys like Eric Dier, Oxlade Chamberlain, Wilshere, Ross Barkley and Borthwick Jackson have been top players for 2 years or more and are all under the age of 23.
I can't think of one foreign player under the age of 23 who has had more than 1 good season.
Pogba has been medicore for all but 1 season
Neymar was only good last year
Varane is irrelevant in 2016
Lets not forget what happened to the 'world class' likes of Gotze who faded away and haven't been heard of since 2012.
England produces consistency and that is why we are all set to dominate the next 10 years. I can say with confidence that Delle Ali will be world class in the 2022 world cup and 2026 world cup and will have a Zidane in 2006 style veterans run in the 2030 world cup, because he has already proven he is more than a one season wonder.
He might have meant it in a positive way "he's so outrageously good its a joke". He was 16 at the time.
Alli's used the same twitter account since he was really young, there's his whole shitposting history up there.
And you're English, so your delusion is immediately obvious
No, England not winning anything for the last 50 years is a fact not an opinion.
>muh 50 years of hurt
Add to that that none of the world's best players are English and realize that the premiership is good not because it is an English league but in spite of it thanks to all the foreign players.
>tfw Napoli offered Ajax 25 million and they accepted it
>tfw based Bazoer declined it and wanted to continue growing in the Eredivisie
>tfw he's only 19
The new Rijkaard, lads
Having talented players is one of the lesser English problems. It's that when you put different players together who've grown up under completely different systems they have no idea how to play together.
why you so mad?
