It is absolutely criminal that Maddison has had zero minutes in these two games. Can’t blame him for wanting to move in the summer to a more fashionable club.
I'm not sure it's just that. Chilwell has been pretty rubbish for us but still gets a starting spot and it didn't stop Maguire going to the WC. I think it's more to do with this manager's idea of how to play. He doesnt value creativity and spark, he wants direct football which always has defence at the heart of it. Maddison isn't that kind of player. Barkley isn't really but he will be slightly less adventurous than Maddison. It's a ****ing disgrace though I agree.It is absolutely criminal that Maddison has had zero minutes in these two games. Can’t blame him for wanting to move in the summer to a more fashionable club.
Could definitely see how he would rub a character like Southgate the wrong way.Rumors that Madison is a bit of a dick in training. Probably completely unfounded rubbish.
Doesn't hold true of Mount though.Maddison is effectively new to the squad. Southgate seems to bring players in quite gently in that they tend to be in the squad for a match or two before getting much, or sometimes any, game time. He will have spent the international break learning the England team and tactics, and will be better placed to take advantage of the opportunity of playing when it presents itself - which I expect it will at the next break. He's also coming back to us rested and uninjured. Nothing to complain about.
Mount is the savoir of international football though.
Frank Lampard’s Derby.Mount is the savoir of international football though.
You have to remember that whilst Madders was only playing week in week out in the Premier League last season, Mount was integral in getting Derby promoted from a much better division.
Madders just needs time to get signed by Chelsea and then loaned to Blackburn for a year.
