Are we in for a surprise call up for any of our lot? Solly, Dunk, Webster, Colwill?? Anyone else..

Not if Mike Hughes is correct with his assessment on the bbc website...

Mike Hughes: The England call up shouts for the Brentford and Brighton players would be great for the romanticists, but that doesn't win Southgate matches. There are plenty of players rightfully ahead of them in the pecking order.
I reckon he is a Manchester City or United fan who lives down south, with that kind of attitude..

Anyway, I hope we get one or two call ups, but am not overly expectant..

It will be another Southgate squad announcement with no Brighton players, despite Solly March being in the form of his life and Lewis Dunk streets ahead of any other English centre back. When he go the job didn't he say he would be picking players on form/merit... what happened to that, Gareth?

I reckon Colwill will get picked. Just to reduce the chances of us getting him, from 2% to 0%.

Not Solly or Lewis though

If Maguire and Coady are still in the squad I will be spitting feathers.

Lewis and Solly deserve a shout based on performance, but that means nothing.

On form you'd take Solly and Dunky but GS will pick neither. I genuinely feel for both of them if and when that happens but at least it will reduce the odds of them getting injured.

i dont mind so much not picking a player just because they've hit a bit of form, manager has a way to play they might not suit, has a longer term view.

i do mind players with utter gash form constantly getting picked. and then played ahead of others in the squad that are in better form.

We all know both Dunk and Solly should be in there.

But there's no chance that talentless Palace plank will pick either of them, especially as he's probably sulking after last night.

Just pre-empting the uproar shortly when Southgate does indeed select an Albion player but it turns out to be Colwill.
