I've just been wondering about this. Why don't we have an England B' team and have matches against 1st teams of other countries. This would surely allow younger players to progress at an early age as well as getting crucial experience against quality opposition (not under 21's!). There's so many players at the moment who arn't getting a look in with the England squad. Why don't we have 2 squads of, let's say, 18 players - one A'Team and one B'Team? Here's an example of players that don't seem to be getting a look in at the moment. Keepers - A bit thin on the ground at the moment. Defenders - Michael Dawson, Anton Ferdinand, Gareth Barry, P Bardsley. Midfield - Aaron Lennon, Kevin Nolan, Matthew Etherington, Joey Barton, Scott Parker, S Downing, J Pennant. Strikers - J Beattie, M Harewood, J Defoe. Feel free to mock my selections.
