    England v Lithuania - Sun 26th March

    Family outing to Wembley for this one. Moshe Jnr's first taste of the national stadium and looking forward to it.

    Thoughts on the game? England by 2-0 or 3-0 seem to be the most likely results according to the bookies...

    I haven't really watched an England game properly for years. Compared to the days when we had proper many-capped England internationals, like Peter Shilton, Terry Butcher, Bryan Robson and Gary Lineker, the current crop seem a bit anonymous... who are the best/most interesting players to look out for?

    Also (real reason for thread :ahem - any thoughts on travel? What is going to be most family friendly from Eastbourne? Currently considering using National Express coach having driven to pick up point in Crawley. Is that a rubbish idea or a decent option?

    Very grateful for any advice from seasoned Wembley-goers.
    The BHAFC forum is utter shite. They literally talk about everything except their own football club on there.

      I knew we were in an International break but had no idea who we were playing.

      My interest in England has slipped to an all-time low but hope you and especially the lad enjoy it.

      Gator Goose Collison? Is that some American cousin of mine I don't know about?

      Thanks. Like you, my interest in England is close to zero - I don't think I could name 4 players who will start the game (especially now Harry Kane is injured!) - but junior should enjoy it and hopefully will be good day out.

      Shows the state of our national game when a 34 year old Defoe is recalled being one of out best strikers. Are there no fit younger ones as good as him now as his day passed when he was omitted by Roy Hodgson.

      Don't get the Defoe hatred, 2nd highest English scorer in the Prem, scoring goals for a shit team. Much rather have him in the squad than Sturridge who thinks he is 20,000 times better than Messi.

      Lost most interest in England but I'm especially cross that we now have to suffer another international break when a) I'm already nervous about our next 2 home games and have to stew for 2 more weeks and b) we are absolute bobbins after an international break.

      Absolutely no interest in. Fifa have wrecked the once great game. Pointless games against Minnie nations to qualify followed now by even more at the tournament before the real clashes begin. Should only play a handful of these minnows like Scotland. Rest should have to qualify for the right to play bigger nations. The qualifications are just so boring and tedious now. Still, families like yours seem to enjoy and it pays for Wembley but can't help but think it's just a money making rather than sporting contest.

      It's a no from me!

      Bought four tickets for this some time ago (as they insist on selling them so far in advance) but now not sure I can be bothered to go. Now I am getting my football buzz from the Albion I really just see supporting England in any active way as a chore.

      Done all sorts of travel to Wembley and in the end decided driving up early and parking in one of the official car parks is actually the best bet. Especially if you get in the open air one as this will get you out quickly afterwards. If you get stuck in the multi car park you are in for a long long evening.

      Tube and train work well, depending on where you are coming from, but as I insist on staying until the final whistle you are a long way back down Wembley Way.

      Food is expensive.

      Most fans leave on 80 minutes or before.

      A lot of the fans there are family groups or tourists unless you go in the England end.

      Enjoy though, Wembley is still something to behold, just unfortunate about the rest of it.

      I do not hate Defoe and respect his goal scoring record in fact I think he should have gone to France for Euro 2016 but my problem is bringing him back at 34 when the next World Cup comes will he still be able? I doubt it and would rather we blooded in a young successor to cover Kane/Vardy for that job and No I wouldnt have included Rooney for that job I would have looked at the U21s to add to Rashford. It is not as if qualifying is going to be a problem.
