If you read it correctly Mr Savo you'll notice I was just saying Sessegnon should be in, the pundits who agreed were the ones saying Foden should too. Not sure I can make it any clearer for you.


Go on then name your full 23. This should be interesting.

The situation is what it is Natalie.

so to answer your question:- Bertrand, Sessegnon & Tarkowski over Dier, Henderson & Rose, Shelvey, Cook, & Murray over Rashford, Lingaard & Welbeck.

We can go back and forth and argue the relative merits of the players you think should be going but it comes back to my earlier point; minor quibbles aside the 23 going are arguably the best 23 available. You might think, for example, that Murray should be going over any of Rashford, Lingard and Welbeck but what difference would it ultimately make? I personally think that outside of Glen Murrays nearest and dearest you would struggle to find many that agree with you but our World Cup success or otherwise wont stand or fall on that type of decision.

For what its worth I think that Murray shouldnt be anywhere near the England squad. It reminds me when some were championing Grant Holt on the back of one half decent top flight season. It demonstrates a knee jerk, flavour of the month approach which very rarely works at international level.

This is like arguing between keeping Stephen Henderson or Dimitar Evtimov in the Forest squad.

No it won't make any difference that's true, England will still be Crap but disagree that it's close to the best 23 available.

Plating admits that the 1998 draw was fixed to ensure that France & Brazil wouldn't meet until the final... In fact, every World Cup draw since 1974 has been fixed this way for the holders & hosts.

So... FIFA are corrupt, Has he got any news that we don't know?

Rashford & Young were shit too, yet still regarded by some as "Amongst our best 23 players" LOL

Want some Guaranteed profit? England NOT to win the World Cup is 1/40, only £25 profit from £1000 but Guaranteed!!

Here was half the country waiting with bated breath to stick all of their life earnings on England waltzing away with the trophy until you came in with this extremely inciteful tip. Top work Deano.

Why aren't these odds so much higher...??

England to win World Cup & Salah top scorer 500/1 LOL

Welbeck to score winner in WC Final 150/1 FFS ROFL

Danny Rose to score in WC Final 100/1 ROFL even more

All the above should be Trillons/1 Never has anything been more certain not to happen. Bookies must be drunk!

So saying the best squad possible has been picked means we think that we will win the World Cup? No one said we have a winning squad, we said we have the best squad from the players available. Fuck sake your hard work.

Still waiting to see your 23?

Anyone's best 23 still wouldn't be very good.  I don't get the annoyance at a specific 23 that isn't very good.

Deano can't count to 23 which must be why he hasn't posted it.

If you're actually going to do this you should lay them on Befair instead. For the same risk you'd get over double the profit :)

I love the World Cup. We've got a four hour gap between us and Russia here in Indonesia which makes for much more pleasing kick off times than previous tournaments. Obviously England won't win it so I'd like to see Messi cement his legacy as the greatest player of all time.
