Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

If I had to describe Szczesney currently it'd be as 'solid' and probably not much more. I think previous keepers have had such a reputation of being calamities that when a consistent, solid keeper comes along he is bound to get a load of hype.

He may have shown flashes of brilliance but as of now there is no way he is anything other than a prospect. De Gea may have made a few mistakes at the beginning of this season but in my opinion he's still shown he has a lot more to come than Szczesney.

If Szczesney kept performing like that for the rest of his career he would still be one of the most consistent. I can't not seeing him being here 1st choice for a long time to come, nothing phases him, his character is better than most, recovers from everything with ease.
Because:

- He hasn't put it together for long periods of time.
- He is still quite prone to mistakes and lacks the positioning that he should learn with time, meaning improvement is needed -> is a prospect.
- There is a big gap between his best and worst, which is a sign of inexperience -> see above.

He's a prospect.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

tbh Arsenal haven't exactly played a shit load of competitive games (5 I believe). Yes Chezzer has looked very good so far no doubt but it's still to early to really rate him considering before this season he wasn't THAT great. He has great signs of potential but for right now he is still just a prospect and has much to learn.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Basically what others have said already, Stringer. He's shown flashes of brilliance, but overall he's not that good and we really don't know if he ever will be a top keeper. He could spring forward and do that, or he might stay in the same place and just be another forgettable keeper.

It has nothing to do with his age, but yes, I'd also at this point still rate Wilshere as a prospect. I find him massively overrated and he's nowhere near at the level that people have pegged him to be. If he stayed on the same plane of quality that he's been at, then no one would ever call him anything more than a prospect that didn't turn out. If he becomes the player people want him to be, then fine. But he's not right now.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

wilshere is a little overhyped, but i always find it funny when opposition fans say he is massively overrated when they know deep down he would walk right into their team with ease. at 19.

edit: apart from the usual suspects of Barca and Real Madrid, and perhaps citeh and a few other top clubs around europe.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

If England shouldn't be in the top 10, neither should Italy. What are Croatia doing in there lol.

How did they drop from 4th to 8th after winning all their matches since the last rankings? Bizarre.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Yeah I'm with Seb if England & Argentina don't deserve to be there then neither do Italy seeing as all three haven't been great. Even Brazil have been slacking.
