These networking ex players and pundits who keep screaming 'Wiltshire for England' are having a laugh I think.
It was doing my nut in anyway but having just heard on MOTD that his last PL goal was in May............. 2015 ffs, how can anyone with a straight face say he should play for England?
Not exactly Messi at his best anyway is he.

Wenger seems to be worried about his lack of options up front after Giroud picked up an injury last night. They've only got Sanchez, Lacazette and Welbeck available now.

Emmanuel Eboue is in the Mirror as being broke, divorced, wanted by bailiffs and sleeping on a friend floor as well as having suicidal thoughts.

Sad state of affairs. Seems his wife was in control of finances and now divorced him and is getting all his assets. A tale of to much money and not enough sense.

Pick the ball up, dribble very slowly into 2/3 opponents. Lose possession then throw yourself to the floor and demand a free kick, then spend the next 5 seconds gesticulating to the ref. Repeat as often as possible

Not exactly what England need right now to be honest.

Goal scoring has never been his thing in his defence, but then again, apart from the above, I’m not sure what else would be described as ‘his thing’? Aside from being injured obviously!

He’s easily the worst Gascoigne comparison there’s ever been in English football. An absolute insult

I heard Dean Ashton and Georgie Bings on TS yesterday both saying he has to go to world cup 'if he stays fit' (lol).
Seriously wtf are these people watching?
It makes absolutely no sense.
I can only conclude its back handers all round because he certainly hasn't earned a right to be there on merit.
Had a good game for England back in 2013 and you're suddenly in the team for life.
Sums up everything that is wrong with the England team.
Fkin joke.
Why am I even talking about this twat on Xmas day lol?

Another Wheelchair stat from Sky during the Liverpool match was that it was his 3rd PL start in a row.

The last time he strung 3 PL starts together was in 2014.

Jack Wilshere, when fit and on form, is a very good player and we don't really have many players like him so I think thats why he gets mentioned quite a lot. It isn't like England have a wealth of options in centre midfield.

I've a feeling that there lies a much bigger problem within football in regards to Eboue's case.

Not sure how many pro footballer's go out of their way to get professional financial advice. I recall a fact, no idea where from now but that 1 out 4 pro footballers end up filing for bankruptcy. With the ridiculous wages now being paid, and relatively short careers that footballers have, it's no wonder that stuff like this is happening.

I don't think many people are going to being feeling sorry for these guys because of the amounts of money involved, but everyone needs guidance at some point.

A blend of youth and ignorance combined with a plethora of hangers-on and tawdry temptresses all looking for a slice of the pie and and fame by association.

Firstly, they’ll need to get good advice on what professional financial advice they should seek! Half the time, those giving the advice are little more than fucking chancers themselves! Plenty of cases where it’s the so called professional advice they’ve been given that’s fucked them up.

Honestly I don't know what they're complaining about. This whole situation is Arsene Wenger's fault not Sanchez's. He indicated that he wanted to leave and has always maintained that he would not sign a new contract when this one ran out, but they refused to sell him and instead chose to force him to see out his contract against his wishes so what did they expect to happen? Wenger has cut his nose off to spite his face and is now having to live with the rather obvious and predictable consequences.

He basically won them the game yesterday so not sure how they can call him out after that and claim he's not putting a shift in.

Even while sulking he's still contributing more to the team than half of them are for fuck sake
