    Would love to see Wilshere and Shaw fit and in the squad for the Euros. Personally my team would be...

    ----------------------Forster-----------------------
    Clyne----Cahill-------Stones-----Bert/Shaw
    -------------Wilshere--------Alli------------------
    ---------------------Barkley-----------------------
    -Sturr/Wellb----------Kane-------------Vardy-

    Shaw needs to prove his fitness, which I don't think he will.
    Vardy should play up front or not at all. Even in a 433, Welbeck is a better choice on the wing due to his work rate. The other forward needs to be someone more creative or a proper winger (Lallana or Sterling).
    And we need to use a proper holding mid, especially because we already have one.

    -----------------------Hart------------------------
    Clyne------Cahill-------Stones-----Bertrand
    -----------------------Dier-------------------------
    ---------------Alli-------Barkley/Wilshere------
    --Sterling----------Kane-----------Welbeck--

    And Bertrand over Rose? Rose has been the best left back in the league this season

    Rose is massively over-rated.

    Anyone watching the England match?

    Poor game. Rose should actually have two penaltys given against him.

    Vardy has been good though and Stones looks decent on the left side of the defence

    Hodgson regurgitating the same [email protected] after every loss... "we learnt a lot".

    They also apparently "learnt a lot" after not winning a game at the world cup. Unfortunately the only thing they seem to learn is how not to win anything of note.

    Which manager is 'most' managing n the wrong decade do we think... Hodgson, LVG or AW?

    Don't you think you can learn from defeat? even if it's only that some players you give a game to aren't good enough you can always learn something.

    I don't think Hodgson learns anything worthwhile from defeat no.

    How is he massively over rated? This year he has been part of the best defence and a big part of his role is to be an attacking player as well and he has contributed to the fact Spurs are the highest scorers in the league as well. Previously he has concentrated too much on attacking and his defending has let him down.
    It's easy to pick him apart from a few mistakes in one friendly but I have watched most spurs games this season and he has been very consistent. A much improved player and someone I never thought would reach the level he has got to now.

    What level? He's a decent fullback. Not technically amazing but a decent athlete. He is nowhere near good enough for one of the elite Clubs.

    I cant help but think the level has been so poor this Season at the top of the EPL that many players getting overhyped. Rose for me is a prime example of this. I see nothing special about him.

    'injured'
    'here'
    'he's'
    'than'

    And yes, it's been statistically proven that he's 38% more efficient at footballing than Iniesta. And 17% better at being more efficient than playing worse than Busquets.

    Watching Villa v Chelsea & it's not hard to see why the former are going to get relegated. The players look like they can't wait for the season to end and accept their inevitable fate. Their players don't just lack quality, they lack cohesion, aggression and just general belief.

    4-0 now. Guzan with a terrible error and Pedro pounces. The definition of the league's whipping boys.

    It's just weird that 6/7 years ago, Villa were trying to break into the top 4 and now they're almost certain to go down. Sad to see.

    Anyone watching Liverpool vs Spurs? Was a drab 35 minutes, although Lallana, Sturridge and Kane have all had chances in the last 5 minutes.

    It's weird because both teams have been quite cautious in general play, yet both defences look so nervous when they try to play it out from the back by inviting pressure on themselves. Strange approach to the game.
