    Looked it up, it's up until that side's first match

    What I mainly disagree with is the need for five strikers.
    You never know with injuries but I think Sturridge has been fairly fit since Klopp got him in the team. He's too good IMO to leave home and will be a regular sub if not starter in some games.

    Wilshire over Drinkwater is a bit mental though. It's not like Wilshire is ****ing Maradona the way they've paved the way for him in the team. This kid is given the VIP treatment and for what? Now watch him be MVP of the tournament

    Must be different for World Cups because Roy Keane was technically an unused sub for Ireland's games in 2002.

    No - he wasn't injured. Was a case of dummy out, so he couldn't be replaced.

    Yeah but that was before their first game.

    Technically he was stillan unused sub, he was listed amongst their subs every game which amused me.

    Yeah I know. But after squads are announced they can only be changed through injury/illness and it has to be independently verified.

    It is amusing, but I suppose in theory he could have kissed and made up with McCarthy and joined at any stage.

    So they could have got a replacement if they had hired someone to jump Keane with a crowbar?

    This is the worst England squad ever.

    EDIT *I don't include Graham Taylor's reign*.

    Limiting your options to take 3 sick notes does seem a derp move. Drinkwater isn't a name though. Roy will totally start Rooney every game. The media want the names to play and England managers generally comply.

    I know I'm probably in the minority but I think we should be playing 4-2-3-1: Hart; Walker, Smalling, Cahill, Bertrand; Dier, Wilshere: Rooney, Alli, Sterling; Kane.

    Based on what I've seen in the 3 games they're probably the form players.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    No I would not hate that, Rooney still kind of in the way though.

    Maybe Lallana in for Rooney in that side, would mean taking so many strikers seem fairly ridiculous though.

    Probably be ridiculed for this but I would go Vardy over Kane
