Gary Lineker backs ex-Chelsea boss to replace Gareth Southgate as next England manager


I'm looking forward to Wednesday when the National League fixtures are finally released. After relegation Sutton cleared out about all but 3 of last seasons squad and recruited a completely new batch. No idea how they'll work together.

Bodes well:

"UEFA have appointed controversial German referee Felix Zwayer to officiate England's Euro 2024 semi-final against the Netherlands in Dortmund.

Zwayer, 43, was involved in a match-fixing scandal in 2005 and was given a six-month ban.

He also took a two-month break from refereeing in 2021 following a controversial 'Der Klassiker' game at Signal Iduna Park between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. Zwayer turned down Dortmund's appeals for a penalty before giving Bayern a spot-kick for a handball by Mats Hummels.

After that game, then-Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham questioned his officiating. Bellingham said: "You give a referee that has match fixed before, the biggest game in Germany. What do you expect?" Bellingham was fined £34,000 by the German Football Association for his comments."

Shit, for want of a better word

Depends how much we are prepared to pay him.

I'm sure Gareth could get up a good whip round amongst his millionaire players

It does make you wonder what UEFA are up to though.

Spain v France

Really good game

I really can't see England beating either of these if they do get to the final

Centre'arf, beyind, could of?
Can't Jermaine Jenas speak proper English?

"By the way..."

Spain have 2 brilliant wingers. If only we had players like that to stretch the play.

How overrated is M'bappe.

Spain are going to be a handful for whoever gets through.

Spain looking tasty
