Re: England’s Number 1

Well hes not great at kicking it short either to be honest. But that is why hes been throwing and rolling the ball out more. Long distance kicking plays a more important roll when we are up against better sides I think, especially with Kane a target up top. I'll be proud seeing him play for England...

Is it perhaps possible that our ‘authorities’ are not too keen on VAR and are putting together a case to have it removed from the game?

He is unlikely to get a job at a club the size of Villa already in the Premier League, so at some point he’ll no doubt conclude he needs to take a step back to move forward.
