    Wow I’m amazed that an Englishman got called up that doesn’ play in England. Congrats to Fraser Forster.

  2. Smokey Bacon says:

    Really like these moves by Hodgson. The Southampton boys deserve their shot.

    We are not going to win the World Cup but we might make some noise with a young attacking team. It’s looking better and better.
