Quoted from KingstonMariner
Ah, pretty much right. According to Wiki, him and his twin brother (Romario!) were named after Brazilian footballers...


So we know his parents are idiots, but I wonder what sort of a player he is? Would be very multi-cultural to have somebody with that name playing for the senior England team!

Anyway, well done to Embleton. Wasn't sure about him initially. Scored a good goal against Morecambe the other week but later lost possession needlessly which led to their equaliser and then disappeared from the game. However, he did really well against Port Vale and really applied himself in addition to keeping the ball moving around well.

Hopefully this will continue for the rest of his loan period!

Never seen England scouts at any of our matches since Vernon left.

Character building.

I don't necessarily agree that they were a " shower of shite " but I don't think you will ever see an England team achieve anything - the Premiersh*t has put paid to that. When only 30% of Premiershit first team choices are English then we will always struggle to put together a World  class team.

I don't think it's just because of the premiership and only 30% of the players being English. Real Madrid and Barcelona have as much money to spend on foreigners, and do, as any of the premier league clubs, but they somehow manage to keep a steady stream of Spanish players that are at the top of the game.

Maybe it's a problem with opportunities. They often sell a player with a buy back clause, put them in the B team or loan them out abroad. B teams aren't an option and the other two things don't seem to happen often with English players.

I also think we've been slow to cotton on that technical ability is as important as being athletic. The way the Dutch and Spanish teams coach the players from a young age seems to give them so much more talent on the ball than our players have. I think we're catching up, but still not there. Only really Dario Gradi ever bought into that system in England.

They've out-punched their weight for 45 years. You wouldn't expect a country with their population to do so well. I'd say they've done better than England relative to their population.

A relative blip in a longish sequence of doing well though.
