  1. He deserves his chance and I hope Hippo plays him,
    Noble will not play for England unless there are a lot of injuries,sorry but not good enough,
    Cressie will be the left back when he is fit,
    Bambi will be a super sub when he wobbles back to play,
    Oxford and Burke will be in the squad within 2 years,
    Well done Antonio go get them

  2. Well done Ant,defiantely deserves the call up.Other than that it’s the same sh#t that failed in the euros.Big changes eh.Hippo was going to shake the squad up & bin the rubbish from the euros.Yeah right,It was never going to happen lol

  3. Probably found Woys last team sheet and realised he can not spell any new ones Rad,
    He probably had Nolan down 3 time then realised he does not come round and mow the lawn any more,
    Uncross your Bullocks Rad,
    Biggins cant surly get on the pitch anymore,but now Tore is becoming an embarrassment to Slav and our club no wonder Turkey never picked him for the Europeans,
    Might help if he was played on the right side and lost some weight,

  4. OK bubs they are uncrossed lol.It is a sh*t England squad.I knew that the old failures from the euros would still be in.I read so many people say he would shake it all up & bring in a load of new faces but I knew that there wouldn’t be.Now we will just have to wait for him turn them from sh*t into a dream team lol
    I ain’t bothered about Tore,he was only signed up as a squad player,once the main men are back he will be benched.Thats why it ain’t worth getting p*ssed off about him.

  5. Defo well deserved, congratulations Michail I hope you become our first choice on the right wing COYI !!!!
