Dowell has a very slight frame but he's still quite tall. Get him on the weights and see if he can get some shoulders.

Alli only has a very slight frame and is similar technically, but he uses his body very well and is aggressive with and without the ball. Think dowell should look at him for inspiration.



Why get everyone on the weights. Natural balance is a prerequisite for certain types of individual. Body mass is not always ideal in certain circumstances. By the logic of Dowell turning into some Marvel comic Thor character. Maybe after spending 50 million on Sigurdson, we should get him on high protein diets and bodybuilding regimes, to improve his ability to flatten people, but fuck right up the very thing we bought him for in the first place.

Because modern football is played by super athletes, not ballet dancers.



So Messi is a big guy. Yeah?

No, he's a super athlete though.



Yeah OK. You got the message anyway.

You can be a tiny, low centre of gravity sharp turn midfielder, or a pacey midfielder, or a tall, strong midfielder, but there's almost no room whatsoever for a lanky waif with technique and no physical presence.

Give me one example of a player like that playing in a top league.



Lanky waifs without physical presence, don't need much room whatsoever.

He's looking good. He's not going on loan. It's good to see. :)

I only caught about twenty minutes of the second half and he made a couple of poor passes. For anyone who's seen him play a lot, is his general play up to standard?  There's no doubting he can shoot.



He just explodes into quality. Yeah! not enough to be the 'next thing'. But when he does, it's more than normal. If he keeps on doing it? Well! He's the next thing. I llke him. He looks good. :)

Here's some info on Paul Martin. I'm not sure if this has been posted, but if not, this is pretty interesting though a bit concerning, as I think most rate Kieran Dowell.

Didn't Alex Ferguson hate him? Refused to deal with him on a few occasions if I recall.



I didn't know who Ross Barkley's agent was until 2 or 3 months ago. I asked on here a few times if anyone did know, and basically, it appeared like no one did. Looking at the recent past with Barkley, and 18 months to 2 years with Stones, he's not got the sort of track record to instil confidence where Everton based players are concerned. I like the look of Kieran Dowell and this fella seems to like moving his clients around. I just hope he doesn't do it with Dowell. ???
