Robbos a good shout, I wouldnt bring Cleverly, not good enough imo, he's good, but I don't think he will male it as an England international
ManUK (Manchester United) 1 year ago
He would hardly play now, but he can start there in the future a be brilliant. Just watch a few years down the road...

Here's another slightly modified version of RedknappsRebel's squad above:

Defenders: Walker, Richards, Terry, Cahill, Lescott, Jones, Baines, Cole.

Midfielders: Parker, Barry, Scholes, Lennon, Walcott, Gerrard (Morrison), Lampard, Milner, Young, Bale

Strikers: Rooney, Holt, Defoe, Welbeck

Good few names in the mix there, Stockdale, Morrison &Defoe.  Bales Welsh & I can't see Scho  Es, he's said je won't come back

Bale isn't English
Peteko 1 year ago
Yeah I always forget that about Bale. No offense to the Welsh intended.

I have seen Stockdale play have been impressed by him. He has been called by England but was never given a true chance whether for club or country, but I am convinced that the potential is there

So if you were Roy Hodgson who would be in your 23 man squad for the Euros?
Heres mine:

Goalkeepers: Hart, Green, Carson.

Defenders: Walker, Richards, Terry, Cahill, Lescott, Jones, Baines, Cole.

Midfielders: Lennon, Walcott, Gerrard, Lampard, Parker, Milner, Young, Barry.

Strikers: Holt, Rooney, Welbeck Sturridge.

There are numerous other players that we could taoe, but that is the 23 i'd take.
Who would you take?
Peteko 1 year ago
Don't you have only 21 in your list?
WhiteHartRogue (Tottenham Hotspur) 1 year ago
No, lol

I think I'd leave Sturridge out and get in Defoe, and Carson out for Ruddy. Apart from that, I guess it'd be the same. Its somewhat unfortunate that Wilshere is out injured, or he'd have gotten in. Unfortunately, I doubt if any of our modified version of the squad will be "enough"
