Im not an England fan firstly
But for me John Joe shelves has been playing good football and he isn't even on standby.
He can pick a forward pass, he gets stuck in, and can't pick a shot from outside the box. Benitez has him playing good football.
Exactly the type of player England are lacking.

Leahy - he is a luxury player: if there's space he can hit the 60 yarder but he lacks movement and doesn't like being closed down- his discipline goes awry- these are comments from newcastle fans who watch him week in / out and got to say the proof is there if you watch. don't think for one minute that england are going to win the tournamant but shelvey ain't the answer imo.

Leahy, my teenage son is more mobile in the mornings, than Shelvey. He stands admiring his admittedly good passing, instead of trying to anticipate what might happen next. Maybe it's just his appearance, but he really doesn't look the brightest guy on the pitch, either.

I have just seen him play a few times this season, he looked good against Chelsea the weekend but can't judge him enough because I haven't seen enough of him.

I tried picking a starting eleven on the BBC sport selector on my lunch. I got as far as the goalkeeping options before contemplating throwing myself off the top floor of the building.

God those midfield options are thin. Arguably the worst England squad I've ever seen. Doubtless they'll over perform now.

I think there are 15 or so regular starter from the top 4 there so not sure why people think they have no chance.
I admire Southgate for the way he goes about his business.
England teams have been picked by the press In years gone by nearly.
Lampard and Gerrard played in effectively the same role for their clubs but the manners teied to fit both in when only 1 should have been playing at any one time for England. Instead they shifted scholes out to the left. Bonkers stuff.
