    That’s the third blank Saturday this season. It’s shit.
    Had a lie in till 10.00 courtesy of too much Scotch last night.
    Walked dog for three hours. Watched You Tube videos of Climbing Blencathra via Sharp Edge in winter, Richard Hawley live in Belgium, My Morning Jacket live at Forest Hills, The Flaming Lips at Glastonbury. Took dog out again and it’s time to get pissed again on Red Wine.
    Just thought I would post on here so the site doesn’t go 48 hours post free.

    Not really but I just find these international breaks so ridiculous. For a friendly against USA. Nice winning most weeks last season though.

    Not forgetting we play Croatia today in a game that could see us winning our Nations league group or getting relegated. Of no importance whatsoever todays game. What I don’t agree with is the days international games are now played on. Only in finals would England play Thursday and Sunday but now its any day any time and it does my swede in.

    Big game for England today, chance to qualify for the euros a year early and Southgate hasn’t even got McManaman on the bench and is playing 433 instead of 442. WTF??!!

    How does England playing Croatia affect a Latics game today when we and our potential opponents in a league game don’t have players in the England squad?

    If a team has three or more England internationals picked for a game, then okay, that club should be able to postpone a game.
    Postponing games because foreign nationals are picked for their country should not be permitted. Squads are big enough these days, and if it had an impact on teams being below par, it might just make them put more effort into producing English players instead of buying all all the foreign players.

    Excellent point Horc but to make that even more workable clubs should be limited to three overseas players per squad.

    Now that would make sense and be a solution to a major problem within our game. Do you fancy a job at UEFA or FIFA. No…………….I thought not, you’re not corrupt enough.

    And you’ll be the first to moan when we lose a game because we’re missing 2 or 3 players or when we get relegated because we are getting stuffed every week as we can only play English lads.

    It’s a massive problem in the game and the major contributor to why England have failed so miserably time after time.

    Whilst I do agree in essence, they tried this in rugby and all that happens is the competiton gets watered down and becomes shite.

    Take away the likes of Aguero, Silva, De Bryune, Hazard, De Gea, Pogba, Salah, Mane, Firminio, Eriksen, Van Dijk.

    Yes English players will get a chance but chances are they are nowhere near as talented otherwise they’d already be playing.

    Salary capping does the same thing too. It wont make Southampton as good as City, it will just make City as shit as Southampton.

    England are doing OK at the minute so let’s not look for ways to change the game.

    No one wants to take away the above players, just limit the amount that clubs are allowed to play in a match.

    There is no reason why homegrown players can’t be as good if they get the chance and if the coaching etc is good enough.
