  1. Matty James - what is the status?

    Before the latest injury, I think his only stinker was against Man Utd. Otherwise I thought he did well. He's clearly better than King and will hopefully be a vital squad member along with Ndidi, Iborra and Silva. I do worry that the injuries may be taking their toll now, physically and mentally. IF we can get him fit and keep him fit, which is possible looking at his loan at Barnsley, I think he can be a real asset to this Leicester side.
  2. England squad

    Nice article, that. He's gonna bag the winner in the final I just know it
  3. England squad

    I'd love it if we slapped in a bid for Loftus-Cheek next summer!
  4. England squad

    Good debut from Abraham. Lacked composure and showed his nerves at times. With more experience under his belt he could've had a hat-trick tonight. But he got into good areas and did a lot of things right.
  5. England squad

    Southgate's U21 connections innit
  6. England squad

    He's been very poor so far. Loftus-Cheek, on the other hand, looks like a class act.
  7. What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    Had one the other day at 6 am, still dark, no lights, no hi-vis, no helmet, dark top, dark trousers. Absolute bell.
  8. England squad

    Fair point. I still think we're missing a trick though. One of the youth teams won't have an important game (I think the U20s play Germany in a friendly themselves). It's not going to happen, I know. It's just frustrating that we call up mediocre players to the senior side to replace the first choice players who can't play through a niggle for a friendly, and when we actually go to tournaments the players play like they're scared out of their wits.

    To put it another way, Germany rested much of their senior side during the Confederations Cup (which they won). Instead they sent a lot of young players. They didn't send the Bundesliga also-rans. We have no succession plan. Instead its: 'Fvck it, Jake Livermore's alright'.
  10. England squad

    I'd love to see him in the squad as a Leicester fan and think he most deserved it during the title season, and last season as one of our better performers. But I don't think he'd have a prayer of going to the World Cup or make many other squads for competitive games so for me it'd be the same as with the likes of Cork: there'd be no real point. They'd be better off calling Dimmy up as he has more chance of being part of England's long-term future. Don't get me wrong though, I'm a believer in picking the best team that's available for competitive England games. And I think Albrighton should have had a chance before now. But, in this period before a World Cup with no competitive games between now and then, I think it's probably the best time to be thinking about (a) England's World Cup campaign by picking as many players who have a realistic chance of going to the tournament, and (b) peppering that squad with a few of the standout U21, U20 or U17 players who have stellar futures on the horizon to really help integrate them into the senior setup, especially as they're doing so well - we need to capitalise on that somehow
  11. England squad

    With all the withdrawals, do some of these replacements really have much of a chance of going to Russia in the summer? The first choice players will all make themselves available for the tournament with little niggles and knocks. So, wouldn't it actually be more appropriate to reward some of the players who represented the U21, U20 or U17 teams so brilliantly recently? If we're talking natural progression from the youth teams to the seniors, wouldn't a decent performance in a senior friendly from say Rhian Brewster perhaps give him more chance of playing first team football for his club? I mean, Southgate is going to learn nothing from calling up Jack Cork. It's a pointless exercise. So why not chuck one or two of the young lads in?
  12. Transfer Window - January

    If Mahrez does go, it'll be great to take Ben Arfa as his replacement. I think it's been a shrewd move putting Gray in the team though because Ben Arfa would need time to become match fit, and Albrighton/Chilwell on the left, Gray on the right and Okazaki behind Vardy ain't bad in the meantime.
  13. England squad

    Let the Germans have the ball and play on the break with Vards, Rashford and Sterling
  14. Harvey Barnes- Barnsley (loan)

    Great that he's in the proper squad after missing out on the World Cup and going to the Toulon Tournament instead. Still, both worked out pretty well! Let's hope he impresses and continues to excel with Barnsley. If so it shouldn't be too long before he's in the U21 squad.
  15. Joey Barton on TalkSport

    I listened to the game on TalkSport and couldn't help but notice that every so often Sam Matterface was quoting live odds from Sky Bet (I think) for the game. Must have been a tad awkward with Joey Barton sat next to him!
