Who’s on England’s £9.99 Flight to Russia?

Recommended Posts

can't wait for Harry Kane to have his metatarsal broken towards the end of the season.

Hart will be number one. Southgate just hasn't got the balls to drop him. But in fairness to Hart, he's better than Forster. I'd have Butland or Pickford in personally. In reality keepers are Hart, Pickford, Butland.

Defence... I reckon Stones, Jones and Maguire are nailed on to go (I'm livid at myself for bottling backing Maguire to go at 5/1 in August), with maybe Cahill to go with them. Full backs / wing backs I think will be Walker, Trippier, Rose and probably Bertrand.

Midfield... I reckon it'll be Henderson, Drinkwater, Alli, Lingard, Dier, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wilshere* and maybe even someone a bit unexpected like Harry Winks. Although looking at that I'm largely going off the assumption he plays 3 at the back. I think he'd be mad not to. We've got good centre halves for it, very good wing backs and pretty poor wingers. If we turn up playing 4-2-3-1 he's off his head.

Forwards... Kane nailed on, Vardy I think goes, Sterling's nailed on, then most likely Rashford.

* If fit, which is a big if, although he wasn't fit for the Euros and still went. Couldn't contain my shock when a bloke who'd played about 100 minutes all season couldn't hack tournament football.

Edit: Missed off Sterling xD

Alli is a forward m8 4-3-1-2 for me. Alli the withdrawn forward behind Vardy and Kane.

Barkley will go if he doesn't get injured. 

He needs to actually play football first. No point taking a water boy ala Walcott in ‘06.

Totally missed Lallana off mine too. I reckon he probably comes in for Drinkwater.

Barkley nailed on because he plays for Chelsea now instead of Everton so must be a better player than he was 6 months ago regardless of whether he stays fit or actually performs. :coffee:

See Drinkwater. Absolute comedy if he goes to Russia on the back of being a squad player at Chelsea yet doesn't go to France when he's played nearly every game for a side who won the league.

Jadon Sancho

Interesting shout, forgot he was at Dortmund as I don't believe he broke into the team straight away. You been watching him?

I was halfway through replying to this and then realised how much dross we have in the England team. I actually can't wait for the World Cup as it's the first time I'm just going to sit back and enjoy it as a neutral, after the Iceland game I have no interest in England.

It's actually pretty hard to get to Russia, you have to get a Visa which will set you back about £50.00 on its own.

I've not been but it's one country I do want to go to, in particular St Petersburg which is supposedly beautiful.

St. Petersburg is lovely. There's a good way to visit it without the visa, just fly to Stockholm, Helsinki or Tallinn and book a ferry to St. Petersburg, then you get up to 72 hours to spend there visa-free :)

Not really. 

Book a cruise that goes to Russia, visa sorted.

It really is impressive and even incomparable to any other cities in the world, in my opinion. Just has that unique vibe to it. Moscow is cool too, but I barely remember any of it as I visited as a child a long time ago...

They are relaxing the visa rules for the WC. IF you have a ticket you can get some 'fan ID' card which will get you in without a visa.

They'll also let you skip the queues at customs on the way out if you are willing to carry a nerve agent in your suitcase with you
