The first signing of the new era at Newcastle United is 31 year old England International Kieran Trippier who has signed from Atletico Madrid on a 2.5 year deal for £12 million. A total steal and I actually cannot quite believe we are already signing a player of high quality, despite still being 19th in the Premier League.Continue reading “NUFC: Trippier Signs”

England cruise to a historic win in their highest ever World Cup game with a stunning first half display against Panama. Scoring an incredible 5 goals in the first half with some fantastic play and even better set pieces. Harry Kane becoming only the third ever England player to score a hat trick in the tournament as well.

Here are my 5 favourite songs for England when they head to the Euro’s or World Cup!
Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home)
I’ve had to include both versions of this song as they are both fantastic with the slight changes in lyrics for the 98 World Cup after it was originally used for Euro 96!
In the second warm up game prior to England heading to France for Euro 2016 they stopped at the Stadium of Light. Giving different players a chance to start the game and put in a claim for a role in the opening game of the European Championships or leaving everyone wondering how they are even in the squad to begin with?
Line up (subs)
Forster (Heaton), Clyne, Smalling (Dier), Stones, Bertrand, Wilshere (Milner), Drinkwater, Henderson, Sterling (Townsend), Rashford (Barkley), Lallana (Rooney)
Today the 26 man England squad ahead of the European Championship was named meaning that three of those players will not be making the final squad! Most of the players were more than expected in all honesty.
When it was announced that England and The FA signed a new deal with Nike, moving away from Umbro after pretty much forever everyone has been waiting to see what the new strips are going to look like. The first to be released is the new home strip.
My initial thoughts about the shirt were that it looks very German. This is something I have read in a few different places as well, it seems as though we keep trying to copy off the German’s at the moment whether it comes to coaching/set up and now it’s the shirt.
