Sancho is shit. He just did well in a foreign league so he bypassed the whole overrated and overpriced English tax phenomenon that all other English players get.
They give him time because why? He did well in the Bundesliga. This fan base values foreign players more than English players and Sancho is viewed as foreign for ultimately doing it in the Bundesliga.
Anyone who watched him in the Bundesliga knows that all he did was beat the offside trap of a high line and draw back a simple pass for the striker to tap in.
This is why for all the fans that were laughing at Southgate for not ever picking him - he got it right all along and the fans were the one who got it wrong. The fan base are worse at football than Southgate.
Antony may never be world class but he has absolutely trumped Sancho in terms of quality of a season in a single one, arguably in a single match. For that reason I can give him time - ultimately because there is a much worse player ‘lingering’ in our squad.
I'm beginning to believe you may be right, and also give Southgate some credit, which many on here don't, that Sancho has never deserved a place in the England team.
I believe he has the ability, but he certainly lacks application, and the mental toughness at the moment, to become a star in the EPL. We need to see so much more from him, not just a couple of excellent things during a match, but fairly consistent creativeness and goal scoring.
Antony, to me, has had a decent season, not great, but I'm hopeful that he will improve in all aspects over the next couple of seasons, with Amad coming back, and being a possible starter in the RW position, it will be interesting to see how Antony responds, especially if Amad does come straight into the team.
Pre season will be really exciting this year, for so many reasons.
