Some of you lot thought Tom Lees was better than Harry Maguire :duntmatter:

 

What makes you think he isn’t?

I remember when the pigs were moaning at Maguire too saying all the have to do is kick the ball towards him or run at him. Besides, he’s been developed since those days

I've met loads of people down the years who support one big city club but like to see the other one do well.  Funnily enough, I remember being at university in the 1990s and in the pub I overheard one guy from Sheffield talking along those lines to his mate (he was a Wednesday fan but liked United and generally liked to see Sheffield clubs do well).

 

Not everyone who supports one club rabidly detests their arch rival, even if that isn't the prevailing position.

Still a youngster when he left them but he was a very good player even then IMO, but yes of course he's progressed further as he's matured.

Maguire has had his chance in the PL and the England team and taken it. It does help when you're playing with and against world class players every week.

 

If Lees had had that chance.....who knows?

I take pride that Harry Maguire a kid from Sheffield is doing so well playing at a World Cup.

I get bored of people trying to bring the Wednesday v United rivalry into everything.

 Jamie Vardy reckons not.

 

Saw somewhere that Vardy claims Maguire is an Owl but went through the Blades youth system. An Owl friend of mine lets his son go to Blades training even though both are Owls.This may have been the case with Harry Maguire.

Maguire is a cracking player, exactly the type of defender I love. Lees is decent but unfortunately nowhere near the same class as Maguire.

Who cares if he’s a pig or a Wednesday fan or whoever, fact is he’s been quality for our country and that’s all that matters... 

hes obviously light years ahead of tom lees, again why does that matter. Both fantastic at their respective level

I doubt he’d be and England player if he’d stayed at the pigs. Is he good enough to be an England player now? The jury’s still out on that

It's close but Trippier for me, so far. Deliveries have been superb.

Harry Kane has scored 6 goals in 4 games , scored in the shoot out, captained the team and led the line brilliantly.

Is it worth pointing out that for all the Yorkshire people in the squad, they all came through different academies (except Vardy, but we sent him packing). Barnsley and Sheff U academies represented but not ours? Issue with our academy or just unlucky?

When Burnley sold Keane to Everton they tried to sign Lees to replace him and we didn't allow it/get the fee we wanted. Now look where Burnley are and a few of their players were unlucky to not make the England squad, think if Lees had left us 18 months ago he could be in that squad now - who knows but as things stand he isn't and Maguire is

We haven't valued youth development for 20 years - the penny has dropped over the last 2-3 years and in years to come we all hope to see more Sheffield lads come through the ranks and play for the first team.

 

Wildsmith and Dawson are Sheffield lads, but the rest have been brought in from other teams academys Thorniley, Ogrady, Neilson, Baker, Clare.

IMO he is most definitely good enough to be an England player.

Impossible to say how he'd have developed if he'd stayed at United but IMO you could see that he was an excellent young player even back then.
