One of the major stories of the most sensational Premier League season of all time has been the emergence of players previously plying their trade lower down the league structure as established top flight stars.
Dele Alli and Jamie Vardy are the two names that perhaps spring to mind at an instant, though there are a number of talents who’ve done excellent jobs.
Most of the Leicester team as a whole have been captivating despite their Football League past, much as the Southampton of a few years ago were.
Michail Antonio of West Ham United is another who is well deserving of a mention, following in the footsteps of Hammers teammate Aaron Cresswell last year.
There’s also a certain Gareth Bale who once played in England’s second tier and is now the most expensive player in the history of the game.
So, searching for burgeoning talent in perhaps less celebrated areas of English football is all the rage right now.
Certainly one that has proven to be applicable to the bigger clubs in English football following the remarkable rise of Tottenham Hotspur.
In fact, their signing of Alli has embarrassed all the major players in the top tier, none more so than Manchester United.
As their plethora of big name signings continue to disappoint, it was the young former MK Dons midfielder who tore them apart during the famous 4-0 Capital One Cup loss last season who excels.
It’s truly astonishing nobody connected with the Red Devils thought to swoop for the teenager who would soon go on to become one of the most exciting players in England.
It’s indicative of their current state. Delusions of grandeur and their minds cast elsewhere, while missing what is in plain sight.
A mistake they can’t afford to make again. There are some very talented players in the Football League, ones that can have similar impacts.
