'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Macca to Fratton!!

In the wake of Jamie Carragher's retirement from International football, Steve McClaren has hinted at a recall for Sol for the friendly, ' You can't close the door on anyone in this job, and would be foolish to do so on either Sol or David' said the befuddled one.

This comes as shock to most Pompey fans who thought McClaren thought England finished at Guildford.

Great news for both our senior statesman, and maybe a first Pompey England International since Mark Hateley in '84?

Hope hes got Sat Nav!
Steve who?
We are situated just past London Macca you to****, Look forward to seeing you, Liar Liar.
Leave Middlesborough, head for London keep going, take a right stop when your feet get wet
if you are looking for stewart downing he is not here
i suppose with terry injured Sol was bound to get mentioned and with sky raving about jamo pre season even that clown couldnt avoid the politics
Nor Becks, although i think the companion sells it
If I were Jamo or Sol I'd be tempted to tell that arse to **** off. Only tempted mind, The reality is that an England place would be excellent - even I'd accept one if arsed (asked?) You know, I honestly believe that I could do the England job as good as this clown. With coaching help, how hard could it be. He's a failure so living up to him is fairly easy.
Just imagine the stick he will get at FP. Steve mcclaren is a ******, steve mcclaren is a ******! But, will this help or hinder our players chances?
Don't know if he'll notice, he must think by now that W****R is his middle name!!
pentonpompey - thats the routs (if it works) - we play football - the game with the round ball, 11 playors...yes? and we have good playors too - dont just look at man u playors, as we do play as well, and we may actually beat them! And if you are coming down, ill warn you now, the fans wont like you - well, thats a bit of an understatement - if you want any respect, invite me to manage for our next friendly, heres my email address - - im waiting!
f??K him
plymouth graham
Im Just afraid it will be some poxy friendly on a plastic russian pitch...yeh... and then we end up with an inured goalie and centre back.. mind you I was ever so proud when hately played for england..then we sold him
plymouth graham
ive got to admit that not even the hint that sol could come back in had much entered my head recently until now - he will look an even bigger tit than he alredy is if he recalls both sol and jamo! and if he does they both deserve it, certainly jamo who is so good i cannot believe that i was ever even slightly against his signing - which i will be honest i was alittle at first... what a boost this would be for pompey if we could see 2 players - maybe more? - called up for england!
It wont happen any way
plymouth graham
It would be good for the two of them but what effect would it have on Pompey, I wonder? As a profile raising exercise for the club it's brilliant but would there be a cost?
oops ive got my games a bit mixed up Russian game is not a friendly.The next game is. still it is nice to be linked to "England" with a player..but I cant see SM'C really calling Sol up..its all PR to him
plymouth graham
im not so sure that it wont happen tbh graham... yep, it would be go pr - not pompeyrug pr tho! - for spineless steve, which god knows he needs but my thinking is it will only help pompey even more... it will show people like defoe that playing for pompey wont mean you cannot play for enlgand... if nugent starts well this season then he has ever chance of being in aswell, i dont expect this but you never know - and lets not count out matty taylor! he would have played at the end of last season if he wasnt injured. so if he starts well this season, you never know... this is going to be a big season for pompey and a season that i think will see us have a few england internationals after 20 plus yrs of being in the wilderness...
Can you imagine four Pompey players in the England squad? Wouldn't that be something. Realms of fantasy I reckon, thouigh
is the squad being selected just for the germany friendly or also for the euro qualifyers? if it is just the friendly then tbh i think it could be possible if nugent and matty impress 'if' he comes to fratton as he has promised, but he promised this before... nugent would be more likely over matty tho if it is for the friendly and the euro games...
Let's hope SM sees a bit of sense, great recognition for the players & PFC.
wow, the thought of no england playors for 20 years, then 4 at once... it aint gonig to happen, i cant beleive it, not with stevei in charge...has someone told him (at last) that he is actualy managing england, and can pick ANY english playor, rather than being on a budget of 60million as in the fantasy football? oh, how i would love it if we could have 4 (even 5, with GO'N in his top 50 at least) playing for england...they could turn it into a pompey, im getting ahead of myself...and i havnt even thought of sean davis...
We must give him a nice reception on Wednesday or he may not come again - do you believe that. Will be his last visit as he will be sacked in the Autumn!!
Why would he come to Pompey?????? Play up Saints
oh yeah probably wants to see Cranie
if sol and jamo get the recall, providing they continue to perform for pompey this season - as they will - it will be hard for them to be left out, that will make 2 in... if matty taylor and nugent in particular perform cinsistently then they will have a shot, so i still think the thought of 2, 3 or 4 pompey players in the england squad isnt beyond the realms of possibility.
come on SaintRug, play nicely :)
Of course, he may just be coming down to monitor some of Krancjar's moves in advance of the Croatia game and now that Niko's injured, won't show up at all. There's just no way this FA boot boy a-- clown would ever put 4 Pompey boys in his squad at the same time.
imagine if linvoy was fit and he picked linvoy AND campbell at centre back. lets be honest after the stick we'll guive him he wont want to put any pompey players in
