This Post from LBG was briefly published earlier this month but was quickly gazumped by another Post that was inadvertently uploaded at the same time. It deserves a revisit now.
THREE STICKS OF DYNAMITE HANGING ON THE WALL…
…and if one stick of dynamite (money was no object, and they were available) should accidentally fall… into your lap, who would you choose: GREALISH? FODEN? or MOUNT?
So I will start with Grealish. A true Maverick. Able to almost single handedly carry an average team into contention for a top four finish. Strong, quick, sneaky, snidey, eye for goal (and for a penalty, especially). Not sure he would be a great team player if there was equal talent around him. 8/10.
Foden. Has all the skills it seems. Scores vital goals, pace, works hard for a team of hard workers, some with consummate skill. Will he take the lead in a team of lesser ability? 8/10
My choice would be Mount. A real team player, pace, eye for goal and (as he has shown recently) the ability to make it happen. Great close control and, my favourite football word, “dynamic” in his thought and deed. 9/10
But, who needs ’em?
If our own stick of dynamite can add to his Merson-glide across the ground, his Wilshere shoulder drop, and his Fabregas final pass, I for one will be in heaven. all we need from you, EMILE SMITH ROWE, is goals and, as a youngster, they will surely come.
