With Sig's transfer saga not showing any signs of being resolved and Barkley looking like he won't be fit by the start of the season I wonder if Koeman might be forced into giving Dowell a go, at least until January.

If he keeps looking threatening he won't be doing himself any harm whatsoever.

Will definitely be an option in Europe I think.

Really interesting player, does seem to have a knack for the spectacular.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Could be our next McFadden!

That's a bit harsh, I think he'll do good for us this season given a chance, Barkley going and lack of options might be the making of him

What's his best position? Where did he start most of the u23 game, last season?

I think he plays off the forward so a number 10 from what my limited knowledge tells me

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

Looks ideal for the left side in front of Baines.

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. :)

You know what, he looks good and I'd rather he didn't get the whole " next big thing" stamp on him. Not trying to detract and make this into a Barkley thread but I think if we just let him go at his own/Koemans pace and just let him develop he'll be a great player for us. Too much too young and the expectation could be too much or it might not and he'll thrive on the attention who knows. Watch this space. 😳😳😳

Looks like he'd be much more comfortable cutting in to shoot from the right. Would also limit exposure to a lack of pace as he wouldn't have to go down the outside as often plus easier to play a reverse ball to an overlapping RB using his left foot rather than the opposite on the other side.

I think this position brings out his qualities as it's a less congested area for a player who isn't the strongest physically and plays to his strengths, which is to create with a wand of a left foot.

It feels like he's been around forever, can't believe he's still only 19
