I hope he goes nowhere near the England squad. Don’t want him associated with that failure association whatsoever. Only reason to want him capped is to increase his transfer fee

Personal aspirations ? If he does not get picked on the form he is in, he is thinking what do i have to do and there is only one other variable which is playing for one the big "sicks", walk onto a pitch for one of them, at the right age and you have got immediately yourself noticed.

To be fair to them, him tearing through their midfield at pace and slotting through Fornals to put us ahead against them is something they've all tried hard to forget.
The comment was even dafter considering the scouse poster was replying to a post that was referring to the amount of media attention Bowen has been receiving.

Great to see him getting his reward for some great performances that haven't necessarily resulted in end product / stats to back up his quality.

Hull had a cracking Bowie song for him:

There’s a star man
Playing on the right
His name is Jarrod Bowen
And he’s ****ing dynamite

This needs reposting. :smiler:

For me his only real weakness is he’s yet to learn how to slow himself down. He cuts inside at will but hurries to get his strike away and is often blocked. If he could learn to chop onto his right or stand the defender up and go again either way he’d have salah like abilities. Drive into the box then stand defender up, invites challenges, for salah often dives which I don’t want. But he can drive off that standing start in either direction. Would become lethal imho. But by god I’m enjoying both watching him play and his desire to play for us. Top man

West Ham's 25-year-old English forward Jarrod Bowen is keen on a move to Liverpool, who remain interested in a summer move.

From FootballInsider. So ignore it.

That being said, if we can get north of £400m for Bowen and Rice it might be worth considering.

If Liverpool are interested it means our players and West Ham are doing well. I’ll take it as a compliment.

Also feels weird having a lot of players other teams would want. Hasn’t happened for a long time.

60m.

Problem with entitled clubs like Liverpool is that they'll have no problem bidding 20m just to unsettle the player

Who can blame him if he go"s? He wants to show a bit of ambition, unlike our owners and at 25 years of age , he wants to win trophies and to that, he needs to play with the best players. So if we have no ambition, then he needs to go to a club that does

We're fourth in the league, in the Europa league last 16 and likely the last 16 of the FA cup.

We also knocked out two of the biggest teams in the world in another cup competition this season.

I mean, Liverpool is clearly a step up but I can see that you still don't engage your brain before you post do ya, silly sod.

Took us a while but we've finally got a Trevor Sinclair replacement.

Just a word isn't it.

The person who wrote it, is most probably assuming.

I'm keen on Margot Robbie.

I’ve googled Margot Robbie many, many times.

Good grief.
