Wheres Jack Grealish?
Henderson, Livermore, Hart - the permanent backbone of English squad
Jonjo Shelvey over Jake Livermore and Jordan Henderson. He's been in great form, when have these two split open a defence? He's also got the defensive side of his game too, thanks to Rafa.
What an awful squad. Southgate really is clueless and out of his depth.
Losing Zaha still annoys me
@676 Surely if deeney scores lots of pens that’s a good reason to take him?We all know if we get to the knockout stage we’ll get knocked out on pens eventually anyway .. it doesn’t even come down to ‘winning’ games at these tournaments.. Take denney everyday
Pointless taking Joe Hart, his bottle goes on the big occasions. Currently fit central defence and central midfield look weak.
You could make up an England team of players who have hardly played for their clubs recently from Southgate's squad:Hart, Stones, Gomes, Trippier, Lallana, Henderson, Wilshire, Dier, Oxlade- Chamberlain, Sterling, Welbeck.Who say's Southgate picks his teams on form only?
I see the BBC are posting some dodgy stats as usual to make certain players or clubs look better than they are. Dont look at stats or believe in them. Any biased statisticion can make someone or team look good. The only one that matters are the amount of trophies youve won. A defender may have a harder time in a weaker team and in a good team may have nothing to do so it makes the stats pointless.
690. wolf359Just before a World Cup is not the time to be calling up untried players===To some extent I would agree with you, but isn't it a damning indictment of the way that Southgate has prepared for this competition?
Some mental comments on here, 692 - on your take we either take no team at all or we make up a squad from the Championship. 691 - Not sure how to take this as it comes across a bit arrogant and naive. Arrogant in that you think England should just take the Man City team and naive because that team would get kicked all over the place.
Non of the goal keepers in the squad cut the mustard.Joe Hart is lacking matches and the rest are from mid to lower table clubs.Walker,no,Stones,no,Tarkowski,no,Bertrand,definatly not,Gomez,no,Mawson,no,Cook,no,Lallana,no,Henderson,no,Wilshire,no,Stirling,no.The Squad chosen just shows how few players England can call upon for any International game,let alone a World Cup.
