Ryan Sessegnon
« on: July 12, 2018, 10:47:02 AM »
Sincerely hope he get's his first England cap whilst still playing for Fulham and not annoyingly a month after he moves onto a "bigger" club in the same way Saha did.

The fact he is a local boy who came up through our academy all the way through into the national team while still contracted to us would make it much more satisfying all round really.

Additionally, who was the last Fulham player to come through the youth team to full England honours while still playing for the club? George Cohen surely?? I know Sean Davis came pretty close but just missed out; Zat Knight negligible as we signed him from Rushall Olympic for some shell suits and a rude fridge magnet or something when he was 19... Does that count?!

Sean Davis made the squad once for a friendly which was played at Upton Park. I don't think he got on the pitch though.

On another note, Zamora was the last capped Fulham player, think he came on at Wembley for a few mins in a friendly and before that Zat vs USA in America. Bullard also made a Capello squad but didn't play.

Barring injury I think he'll get called up for the friendly in September. Southgate will give rests to the players who have played loads in this tournament and you'd imagine he's not so far off that he wouldn't get into a "second" England squad.

Time for Ashley Young to step aside (at 33).

Ryan to understudy Rose before being first choice of the left for the Euro’s.

Another trip to watch  him in a Wembley final.

Sorted!

For the last time, not a left back. Left midfield.

yes he is a left midfielder, but Southgate was using full backs in midfield for the world cup.

No. They are wing backs, so when defending they are full backs. Also Sess's strength is getting in the box but they provide the width.

Ryan Sessegnon is amazingly talented at reading the game, at ghosting or accelerating into fantastic positions, at picking very clever passes and, most of all, at popping up to score goals at vital moments.
Having watched much of the World Cup, I am very glad he wasn't picked to play for England. Even compared to most of the English players, he has work to do on his basic ball skills, especially his first touch, his close control and his dribbling.  Compared to the Championship, possession football teams  at the international level (like England) fizz their passes with greater pace and more accuracy. But they are closed down much faster.   Excellent (as opposed to good) fist touch is mandatory and the ability to dribble and pass out of trouble a big bonus.  Players also have to have the awareness, anticipation and strength to hold off the ahem  "robust" challenges used by nearly all other international players as well as being positive in the tackle - not yet Sess's strongest points.
Ryan is such a decent person without a bad bone in his body that I shudder to think how he would have dealt with the downright cynicism and hostility of payers on the world stage.
However, he has the intelligence, the pace, the stamina and the skills outlined above to grow into being a world-beater.  He just needs time and he needs to be tested against better opposition than he faced in the Championship.
Above all, his coaches need to train him every day in the show-boating skills in which he is still lacking.  When they succeed in that, he will be an absolutely amazing player and ready to bestride the oceans with his natural born abilities. 
Even if that were not to be with Fulham, it will still have been an absolute privilege to have watched the early development of such a prodigious talent at Fulham.  And he will learn more here over the next two years than he would on a "big" club's bench.

Sess will be capped this year without a doubt
