    It’s nice to see a more balanced midfield for England.

  2. Christopher Harris says:

    Seems like a waste to have Darke and Macca calling this game.

  3. Flyvanescence says:

    I like that Milner and Lallana are starting. About bloody time!

    The abuse Milner gets on twitter show how many people actually watch him more than once a blue moon and dont understand what he actually brings to the table.

    • Bruce Gottesman says:

      I agree – Newcastle are still hurting for wing players since he left – especially on the right side.
