I would love to agree but the other stats say that mings shade it.
But then you can argue that has Mings got another dominate defender beside him
Mings is more of a hoof man. Southgate obviously likes that.
3 competitive qualifiers ahead of the rearranged Euros - Lingard and Stones deservedly back - Poland will be a proper test - Brand new qualifying campaign about to start for a World Cup - what’s not to like?
That said, I think it’s ridiculous playing internationals in the midst of Covid. And Lewis Dunk is 10 times the player Mings is I agree. But can only support who’s selected by the manager.
Ps - I avoid England threads on NSC and I’ve only just remembered, but I’ve written it now
Could have been worse. There was quite some talk of Luke Ayling being picked, which really would have taken the biscuit. Granted, the bloke has had a good season, but he's part of the fifth worst defence in the Premier League (and that behind a team who conceded nine in a single game), and has made far too many mistakes to even be under consideration. He was in no-mans land when Maupay scored against them.
lost all interest in England to be honest , Southgate instills the same feelings in me as those i experienced whilst waiting for my pica prep to kick in , in fact if anything the later was more exciting.
i feel sorry for LD though as he clearly merits a spot , i guess Rashford turning him inside out at training camp has really stuck , just like the boys club mentality of the Lampard /Gerrard era......**** em.
Pleasing to see the England knockers out in force.
Last tournament - Semi finals
Euros - genuine chance
Hope they stay away if something special happens in the summer
Villa supporting relative says he's like a rolls Royce, if anything he switches off from time to time because it all gets a bit too easy for him. Reckons Konsa and him will be th England centre half pairing for years to come.
An England squad full of followers rather than leaders, perfectly mirroring their manager, who is the inoffensive type that the FA suits all love. Personally I'm happy that Dunk and White have some time to rest and recharge their batteries, which is much more important.
