A place to discuss Englands squad and performances in the three matches we'll play.
Milner's retired from international football so we'd need someone else in there instead of him. I'm still not convinced about the other two but as you say there aren't many other alternatives.I must say much as I dislike Liverpool (even more so with their twatty Kane behaviour) I did like to see their midfield three of Milner-Henderson-Oxlaide-Chamberlain.
Especially given midfield engine room has been a weak area for us.
Gives another option.
I think I read that the announcement would be on May 16th.The squad must be announced soon, I'm praying Southgate does not pick any Spurs players. I'd rather they be given the summer off and not be infected by the stench of mediocrity that infests this England team. If we get beyond the group stage I'll be amazed. We have no decent goalie, no good centre halves, no creativity in midfield and a manager whose only claim to fame was that he got relegated with Boro. It's going to be embarrassing, I'm dreading it.
Seeing as we have zero possibility of winning the world cup, or even getting to the knockout stage if we're being honest, why bother turning up? Hopefully the Russians will try and kill another Spy or something so we can boycott the whole thing and not humiliate ourselves.
