Webster for England?

Recommended Posts

What are his chances? Is he up there with Stones, Keane  McGuire etc..? Could he at least be in Southgates squad as a back up?

If we've got a clause in the deal on him getting called up then I really hope he makes it, if not then I couldn't care less.

I care, if he gets in the England squad regardless of a clause or not - then it can only be beneficial to us as a club.

1 good season and he could well be in the squad at next years Euros.

If he has the desire, which im sure he does, this should be his aim.

You'd think there would be an add on for a call up. It's a genuine possibility IMO.

Not a chance. Needs to prove himself. Plenty of players are ahead of him in the pecking order (not in any order). Maguire, smalling, stones, dunk, Jones,mee,dier, Cahill , Gomez, keane, tarkovski . Off the top of my head .

I was taking your post quite serious until you mentioned Smalling 😂

How many of those players you have listed are ball playing CBs?

Just a guess, but I don't believe he will ever play for England.  I tip Brighton to be relegated this season, would love to be wrong on both accounts, but I don't believe the Seagulls have the talent to stay up this year.

"He has also worked with Brighton’s technical director Dan Ashworth while featuring for England at under-18 and under-19 level earlier in his career."

I think it’s entirely plausible he will play for England. Still young, still improving, no particular weaknesses in his game and his ball playing ability is a very obvious strength that sets him apart from others.

On his day Smalling is a world class defender, not that he had many last season!.  I would suggest all of them with the exception of maybe Dunk are comfortable with the ball at their feet for what is required of an England defender. Stones, Dier, Cahill, Keane, Chillwell , Rice. all excellent ball playing CBs way ahead of Webster in the pecking order as he has had only one good season in the championship, if he hasn't proven himself at the level of the players in competition against world class opponents. Look at the drubbing we had from palace in pre-season!.

I'm not quite sure you know the difference between a ball playing CB and a CB who's comfortable with the ball at their feet. I'd expect any professional footballer to be comfortable with the ball at their feet.

Isn't rice more of a DM?

Webster has had one decent season in the Championship and people think we were wrong to sell him. Laughable.

I dont think you do! 😂, you may be missing my point, all of the players I listed have been playing at a level above. Webster is untested at the highest level. 

Rice did play a lot at DM last season, but started as a CB, flip me he is only 20!

He's got the right skill set to make it, whether he can adapt it to the premier league will be the question. If he has even an average season this year I can see him attracting attention from teams who like to play out from the back a bit higher in the table (but not top 6 high)

There is a lot of gash in that to be fair.

Laughable that you clearly cannot notice how talented Webster is. Brighton paying a record fee for him says it all.

In the 30 + years I have been supporting city I would say Webster is second only to Andy Cole as the most talented player I have seen play for City (ignoring loans). Cole played for England..... 

I believe Tom Heaton is the in only other city player to play for England post city in the last 30 years (ignoring loans)?

It's not though, is it?

Won't happen any time soon but if he continues to impress, why can't he?

Webster has had one decent season in the Championship and people think they can rule out the possibility of him putting on an England shirt. Laughable!

Webster already better than a few on that list imo.

As others have said, a few good games and he'll have a good chance of an England call up.

There’s no reason why he can’t. In fact, Webster’s trajectory is not dissimilar to Harry Maguire; he was playing Championship football for Wigan in 2015, playing bottom-end Prem football for Hull in 2016, mid-table Prem football for Leicester in 2017....and a World Cup semi final in 2018.

Webster is two years younger than Maguire so it’s a very reasonable comparison.

Nonsense

Its not as if Webster has represented England at any younger age group ..........

Plus hes  a Southgate style player , and find his feet in the Prem and he’s got a chance
