|Will Keane and other young English players|
at 13:28 3 Jul 2014
Having just read Clive's comments about Will Keane and Clive's dismissal of the idea that B teams for the big clubs play in the lower leagues I have been wondering if an England B team might be a better idea? Young English players could somehow have it written in their contracts that if they are not playing regular first team football in the Premier League then they must be given the opportunity to play for England B in the Championship. England B would train at where ever it is that England train but would have to play all their matches away from home. They would not be allowed to be promoted or relegated but could win the FA or League Cup. This would give these players competitive games and develop a style of play that could be used for England teams at all levels. It would also perhaps prevent the academies and reserve teams of the big clubs doing untold damage to these 'man-child types'.
I haven't really spent much time thinking about all the ins and outs of this (although probably as long as the FA Commission spent on thinking up their ideas) so it may be another terrible idea!
|What better way to spend a rainy Bank Holiday Monday?|
at 21:26 26 May 2014
Spent this afternoon watching the build up to the game and the game itself and re-reading the programme. Saturday was amazing, emotional, exhilarating and breath taking. I came away from the game feeling incredibly happy but with the believe that we had been extremely lucky. Today, I watched with pure enjoyment and now think that we weren't lucky we were just brilliant. It was great to appreciate the fans singing and all the flags but even better to fully appreciate the performance on the pitch. I enjoyed reading the programme again as well, including the article on Richard Keogh, 'one of the most dependable defenders in the Championship'.
|Who should take corners?|

The best corners from us this season that I have seen have been taken by BAE but I can't say that I have seen them all. I have certainly seen some very poor ones though by other members of the team.
