End Of The Line For Newcastle Players And England?

8 years ago

Roy Hodgson made the headlines this week when he discussed his selection policy with random cockneys on the underground.

Obviously this was quite shocking….the revelation that Roy’s preferred mode of transport is the tube!

While England candidates at St.James’ park might be a bit thin on the ground, surely we have a stand out in Steven Taylor who should be a certainty to get into the squad sometime this season if he stays fit.

After the disgrace of Fabio Capello NEVER finding his way to the north east in four years, I just hope that the FA haven’t blown all their money on paying off the Italian waster and poor Roy’s travels aren’t limited to a season ticket on the underground!

I actually find it quite endearing that Hodgson chooses to travel with a the general public, I find it hard to envisage Fabio or Sven doing the same. I hope as well that he isn’t put off being a man of the people by scum who can’t wait to run off and repeat (and embellish) whatever tittle tattle they might pick up when somebody in a position of power happily chats away to them.

Looking at the England squad just announced, they have picked four centre-backs in Lescott, Cahill, Shawcross and Jagielka. Personally, I don’t see any of them as better than Steven Taylor and would rate him higher than at least Jagielka on what I’ve seen of him this season.

I suppose the fact that Roy has now even picked a Geordie (Fraser Forster) in the wastelands even further north than the Tyne suggests he will be keeping an open mind on his options.
