Interesting.

Japan left 4 of their most productive Europe based players out. Ridiculous. Average age of them 21.

This is the worst england lineup ever right?

 

In my lifetime I don't think I've seen a collection of england players this bad. 

 

I have no idea how old you are and the 92 squad mentioned before who went to Sweden for the Euros did very badly but the starting 11 weren't bad. This squad isn't, on paper, that good but who knows. The lack of any super-stars might help.

England should get out of the group, and they should really finish first, I don’t think Belgium are much cop. If they do, they should win their second round game. They will lose whoever they play in the quarters most likely though, but I think that would be a decent run.

There's probably worse than this, but the time Neil Ruddock darkened the Wembley Pitch shits all over the current first XI for... er... shitness.

True. There is no golden boy who is expected to shoulder the burden of expectation any more, that must be a good thing. Also, I like the way Southgate has done away with the captaincy soap opera.

 

These are two things that have pissed me off about England over the last 20 odd years so it's rather refreshing to potentially just have 11 lads going out and playing with a bit of freedom.

Yeah just seen that - absolutely insane on the eve of a major tournament!

 

Apparently, the first the Spanish FA knew about him taking the Real Madrid job was about 5 minutes before it was made public.

Blimey.

 

Good news for Englands chances, though, as it reduces the number of teams that they need to implode before having a realistic shot at winning the whole thing to just 30.

Random fact of the day:

 

Lopetegui would have been Wolves manager if Fosun's takeover hadn't been delayed.  He'd agreed terms and everything.  As it happened, he took the Spain job and we appointed Zenga.

Random question:

 

I'm going on holiday next week, and need to find a way to watch the World Cup highlights!  I know iPlayer/ITV Hub won't work overseas, but does anyone know of any other app where I could get basic highlights at the end of each day?

 

Not sure I'll get away with sitting in the hotel bar every day watching 2 or 3 live matches!!  (England game excepted...)
