Forster-Caskey enjoys attacking role with England

The Argus: Jake Forster-Caskey Jake Forster-Caskey

Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey admits he is relishing a more attacking role with England.

Now he hopes to get the chance to cause Brazil a few problems as the under-21s face their most exciting fixture of the Toulon tournament.

Forster-Caskey, above, and club mate Solly March both started England’s opening 3-0 win over Qatar on Thursday.

The former fired a spectacular goal from just inside the box and impressed playing just off the strikers.

He said: “I like playing in the role behind the striker.

“I think it gives me a bit more freedom.

“I have played in a deeper role as well but I enjoy it being closer to the strikers because it means I can shoot and try to get some goals as well.

“It has been easy for me to come in and just train hard, as I knew a few of the boys before and I just want to do my best really.

“There’s Solly March here from Brighton as well, so we’ve come together and it’s been easy really, the other lads have been quality.”

Brazil have already played twice, beating South Korea 2-0 and Colombia 3-1.

Gremio’s bright prospect Luan has impressed in a role similar to that played by Forster-Caskey against Qatar.

Today’s game is being played in St Raphael and kicks off at 6.30pm BST.

Okay then JFC. The new manager will be a chance for you to reinvent yourself and establish yourself in that role if that's what you want. You just have to prove that you can do it better than the rest. The Toulon tournament is an excellent opportunity to begin that process and you've started off pretty well! Go for it son!

Oh eck, now I've confessed to being JFC's dad... and probably Dunk's too.

UTA!!

Morning boys,

Well sometime it takes someone else to try a player in a different position not a bad thing to do, Oscar tried it with Ince in midfield, now Southgate with Jake well it might be good for us to try him in that position if he keeps playing well for u21 team because he does go missing in some games, some people don't like Jake but i think given the right direction and best position we will have a quality player for years to come, just like March!!!
Up the Albion!!!!

The very fact JFC and Solly are with England obviously means they are valued young players who are seen as amongst the best in the country in their age group.
It's a far cry from some of the comments of Jake on here in the last weeks of the season and we should be grateful we have at least two young players with the sort of potential that allows them to get noticed by important people within the game.

Well done lads and Chris Walton, you are our future.
I just hope you don't read these vicious comments written on this site by so called 'supporters'!
It's a wonder any player, whether permanent or loanee want to come or stay at this club the way they are verbally abused. Barnes was subject to constant abuse, he left, Andrews too, now he's going, etc etc.
I pity the next Manager /new players coming to BHA, I hope they have thick skins or don't read the Argus.

Again, another good shout. Despite still having defending duties with this new role he may be able to concentrate that little more on attacking rather than restricting him. Mentally this may help make him the player we once thought he had the potential to become.

So, if I am to analyze your statement correctly, Brighton is not a top club and all our players are cr*p, based on your theory, any players with real talent would not be Brighton players.
If this is the case, why do you spend your hard earned on a season ticket? (paid in full I hasten to add)
I'll reserve judgement on JFC and Dunk, neither are old enough nor have enough game time under their belt to allow me to pass comment just yet.
If memory serves, we turned down Ian Wright because he wasn't good enough, did you, perhaps, write the scout report on him?

i have given jfc a hard time during the seasonly because he has loads of potential and needs to appky himself more. Seemed full of confidence with England so may be to do with position. Good to see our lads in action and to answer irobot... Name the clubs that aren't interestwd in an u20 England player. You also give ukip a bad name slagging of our English born and bred players.o

No no no Claude, it's not that he doesn't like Dunk or his family, he simply doesn't like, 'vile freeloaders,' if Dunk were to leave the club then he wouldn't have a problem with him or his family, who ever they might be today, as the player wouldn't be getting paid, ergo, no longer a vile freeloader.
It's not personal, 'he,' is such a huge fan of Brighton he just hates to see us waste money, waste according to his yard stick. 'He,' along with 22 of his like minded pals have now cancelled their monthly direct debit, now you might think that htis move is a sign of distain, but it isn't, what they are doing is helping the club by saving them some banking fees, direct debits come with a charge, as I am sure you know, so their joint actions should be seen as a positive move.
