    Not sure about that. They were practically deep-throating him when he was in good form.

    Hugely impressive interview by Gordon. It's refreshing to see a young player so focused on what he wants to achieve in the game and so in control of his physical and mental wellbeing. lf anyone is going to get the absolute maximum out of the talent they've been bestowed with, it'll be him. Jadon Sancho, watch and learn.

    Jadon has won trophies, played at Major International tournaments, played and scored in the later stages of the Champions League. Is the youngest and fastest player to 50 Assists in Bundesliga history. He's achieved a lot in his career to date, his time at Man Utd has been a disaster. I think he's got a lot out of his talent, maybe not as much as you or others would have thought, but he was brave to leave England at 17, he can certainly learn though and I think we may see him back to his best in the next 2 or 3 years.

    I hope so, Regis. I really believed Jadon was going to hit the same levels that Jude Bellingham is punching out right now. For all his natural talent though, we've had enough reports of poor time keeping, playing computer games until silly hours and fall outs with managers to suggest the application doesn't quite match the ability. Sure, he's achieved a lot, but you can't help but feel he could have achieved so much more.

    White, Rice and Saka start for Arsenal. Smith Rowe, Ramsdale and Nketiah are on the bench,

    Gilchrist, Madueke and Gallagher start for Chelsea. Chukwuemeka, Dyer, Bettinelli, Sterling and Chalobah are on the bench.

    Palmer is Ill and Chilwell is injured.

    Not really worth watching the game without Palmer playing

    Palmer probably has a cold.

    You can tell they're targeting Gilchrist, and it's paid off.

    I still think he has a chance of starting at the Euros. I hope not.

    Danny Mills on Talksport is saying he is hoping England can find a holding midfielder so Rice can play further forward.

    Not watching this game, why would Chelsea not start Chalobah after a string of decent performances?

    Classic reactionary take. Rice is a solid option in a box-to-box role when needed but if Arteta had an 8 he could trust I highly doubt he'd be playing Rice there. It's a testament to his well-roundedness that he can be serviceable in that role but in no way should he be pushing up the pitch for England when we have the options we do for that role right now. He's simply not cute enough in the final 3rd and it becomes glaring when they face better sides/very resolute black lines. He has unique defensive abilities so it feels very counterproductive to put him in a place where he can't best utilise those.

    No way. He's kaput at top level. I don't see him bouncing back again. United ruined him.

    I don't see it, the squad increase might save his position but he's very close to that Kalvin Phillips "unpickable" zone. The only thing really saving him is he went to a much lower level so he's been average rather than outright bad like Phillips.

    Still between form and now injuries I think any chance of him starting will have passed.

    It depends on if Southgate thinks his experience is worth having on the pitch vs gambling with someone like Mainoo or Trent.

    Well that's obviously one of the questions, not exactly groundbreaking analysis. Southgate will also have to decide if he's fit enough/hasn't regressed physically and is capable of playing at the level.

    The Telegraph’s article about 26 players is framed around how it’s a lifeline for Rashford. Their writer through goes for following 26 man squad in the end through.


    Goalkeepers: Pickford, Ramsdale, Henderson
    Defenders: Walker, Alexander-Arnold, Trippier, Shaw, Stones, Maguire, Konsa, Gomez, Guehi
    Midfielders: Rice, Mainoo, Bellingham, Gallagher, Maddison, Foden, Saka, Grealish, Bowen, Palmer, Gordon
    Forwards: Kane, Toney, Watkins

    Ridiculous squad with a threadbare midfield, about 2 more attackers than ideal.
