Well Done Chris

Congratulations to Chris Smalling who has been called up to the England squad for the first time. After impressing for the U-21, Smalling is one of the eight defenders that Fabio Capello has named in his squad for a friendly against France on Wednesday.

Two years ago he was playing for the Isthmian League side Maidstone United.

Well done Chris.

    It’s the headline, it’s the bottom line.

    So an article without a single named source states that it believes Sir Alex might have to stop Hernandez from doing his prayer thing. In other news, I know a guy who knows a guy who said that Didier Drogba secretly dresses up like Dennis The Menace at midnight and burns a porcupine to his crazy yellow gods.

    A news story that doesn’t quote a single named source isn’t a news story. It’s an opinion piece, and as such only has value if you value the opinion of the person presenting it.

    Long story short, don’t believe what you read just because it’s in print/on a newspapers website. If nobody is willing to put their name to anything in the story it’s not a story.

    As ever the logical lads type the “most correct words. Fletch and Giles.
    This call up is based partially on his fantastic performance in Turkey.
    He looked total class.Everything you would wish of Rio at his age. Composure bringing the ball out beating a man with a forward pass.
    I just dont understand people who knock youngsters, its hardly inspiring is it! Have you heard of motivation?
    Jonny Evans is gonna be just fine.We will be singing his praises in years to come.
