Episode Two – Who are the best current XI of uncapped English players?


Robin was gravely ill this week and so it was up to Jon, Migsy and Paddy to steer the ship.


As usual, the team discussed a number of Talking Points:

  • This is a Serious Show… Puns are Benitez – Revisiting Rafa’s Newcastle

The team briefly looked at the Tyne and Wear derby to see whether our suspicions about Benitez from the last show had been confirmed in any way.

  • More like Manchester Sh*tty – What does the future hold for Guardiola’s intended?

Migsy was keen to talk about Manchester City in the wake of their drop in form culminating in the dismal derby match against United. Will City manage to cling on to a Champions League spot? And, if not, what will the future hold for them?

  • Klopp til you Drop? Are Liverpool’s erratic performances the fault of their manager?

Jon wondered whether or not the team thought that the eleven points that Klopp’s Liverpool have dropped from winning positions could be ascribed to the manager. Should Klopp simply bide his time with his new team until next season rather than risking more dropped points before the end of the season.

  • In Search of Lost Time – Shouldn’t football take a back seat when atrocities occur?

Paddy turned out attention to the Guardian article yesterday which reported a UEFA official’s suggestion that Euro 16 could be played behind closed doors. Why, he wanted to know, do the footballing media feel the need to impose football onto the broader narratives of the world? And are they right to do so?

They then took up the Question that No One is Asking:

Who are the best current XI of uncapped England players?

You can see the final teams that we drew up here and you can vote for the one you think is best here.
