Why Jordan Pickford & Dominic Calvert-Lewin Should Not Be Anywhere Near England's Euro 2020 Squad

Tuesday, 25 February, 2020 10comments  |  Jump to last
An obscure media piece likely to get the hackles up or, alternatively, garner the support of bemused Evertonians considering the limited skills of their star England players as selection for the 2020 Euros beckons.

Beware: this seems to be from someone who seems to write mostly about Liverpool, although claiming to be a Middlesbrough fan.

Who's really bothered?

I'm not interested who get some capped and who doesn't get capped for England to be honest.

These days caps are given out like confetti anyway, you only need to have played two or three games and you get thrown in.

An extremely shallow piece.

Poorly researched. Poorly argued. Poorly written.

This is a bog-strandard fan who has registered himself on the 90 minutes site.

He's not even a journalist, not that that particular occupation should elevate any one to a higher status either.

Evidence of how easy it is for any one to fabricate an identity online and pass yourself off as an 'expert'.

I almost dread Everton pkayers getting picked. End up with a load of shit from the media while equally crap performances from Liverpool etc players get completely overlooked.

I prefer our players not to be selected as they often come back crocked. The only plus I can see is a potential increase in transfer value.

I haven't read it, and won't - but England have a decent squad and for DCL to get a place and Pickford to keep his they both definitely need to improve - DCL on his return of goals from chances (although much improved he has plenty of room to do better) - and Jordan needs to cut out his arrogance and mistakes - but do it for EFC first and foremost lads.

Jay (Brz),

Just look at the “quality“ of what passes for journalism in the Echo, dreadful grammar, por spelin, half truths, innuendo and downright lies, journalists are vying with Estate Agents for the title of “Shit Of The Year “.
The fact that you say the author of this article isn't a journalist is surely in his favour!

Apologies (sort of) to any Blue estate agent who might read this.

Hi Barry [9] I think that for the younger readers it should be explained that the word 'Togger', means football. Like playing togger on the 'oller, means playing football on a bombed site, quite often a hollowed site.
