I presume by this you mean GMT, Bob.
What the hell is 'Coordinated Universal Time' (CUT) or UTC, or however you want to re-arrange the letters?

expect mats prediction when and only when he knows EXACTLY who is in every squad and what their form is during the pre tourney friendlies.

With the tournament being played in Europe I think you can discount the South American teams.
Belgium have a very strong squad,with around 11 Premiership regulars,and it would be nice to see them win but I think they will fall just short,along with Spain who seem to lack firepower upfront in the main tournaments nowadays.

Now, now Statts! The challenge was that YOU name the starting eleven and substitutes YOU would select NOT who Southgate will select!! There you go, ducking again!
Just as long as he DOESN'T pick any of the following .......
Personally I would add Welbeck to this list
hope he holds the proverbial "gun" to James Milner's head and gets him out of retirement [-o< [/quote
You will never know how much it hurts me to admit it Statts, but I agree with you. [/I An even bigger shock for you and, I suspect Zid, is that I would have included Shelvey in the squad. I think he had an incredible 2017-18 season; superior in terms of vision, tackling, leadership and fighting qualities, to both Henderson & Dier.oi
Also, you are spot on Statts, that England are totally bereft of a 'playmaker' and, for this reason alone, I cannot see the team progressing beyond it's usual pinnacle of a first round exit.
