    Will he qualify for the Europa League?

    We've had a mixed bag with his games! He reffed the EFL Cup final, the 9-0 v Leicester and the Leeds game. Although he did also ref the 1-0 wins against Liverpool and City.

    JWP out of tonight's England squad as a 'fitness precaution' and has returned to the club.

    Presume that means he'll be okay for the weekend. I did think to myself this morning that, incredibly selfishly, I'd rather he didn't play for England so that he's fit for us.

    He hasn't missed a minute for Saints since joining the academy aged 9 yet everytime he joins the England squad he picks up a knock. What are they doing to the poor chap?!

    Fitness precaution doesn't necessarily mean he's picked up a knock.

    True, twice he has been sent back now but it probably just seems odd because of his almost invincible "man of steel" reputation at Saints.

    Perhaps it's to preserve the fitness of the other England players he'd be tackling in training...

    Ralph’s taught him the old, “Rub the back of hamstring” routine for the last training session each time

    Maybe Southgate has said you won't get a game as I have used you in a full game and a part game and am rotating, so you may as well go back

    Damn this sensible, balanced, approach. There must be a conspiracy in there somewhere...

    Are there any players in the Scotland squad who are likely to tap up Che Adams or Stuart Armstrong?

    Has he even tried a battered Mars bar either?
