Digne thankful to Everton for French recall

Everton defender Lucas Digne has said that his move to Goodison Park was behind his recall to the French national team this week.

Michael Keane has had as good a season as most English centre backs so far. Certainly warrants a recall to the squad given he was the next big thing when they first called him up.

If our English players are good enough, or get good enough, they'll get picked under Southgate. No question about that.

Well it's slim pickings at the moment, so perhaps. However, I don't think it's unreasonable for people to suggest players at certain clubs get preferential treatment. As we've seen it time and time again, including this last squad. We're not one of those certain clubs either.

Yeah but it's silly to hold the current regime accountable for the failings of previous regimes (see also Marco Silva and Everton). We don't have anyone worthy of a call up other than Pickford. Keane's played well for about 3 games, Davies has been decent but not amazing, DCL is a bit of a quandry.

I think Davies has shown more than Harry Winks for example in terms of getting a call up.

It's those closer calls that go to the player at the bigger, more beloved by pundits type of clubs. I don't think you could really say Barkley has done much barring his most recent game that really merits a call up, and he already had been selected by that point.

I don't know about it in this case. I can't say I'm all that bothered about England call ups either way, but it does mean something to a player and I think the FA/previous managers have clearly been guilty of showing preferential treatment of certain clubs. This is surely not a controversial statement.

It shouldn't be seen as having a chip on your shoulder when all you're looking for is equal consideration, particularly as potentially it does effect the club if players think there might be a cap on their progress internationally and they're better off sitting for half the games on the bench of a top 4/6 club rather than playing for us. Bigger clubs have enough sway to pull in those players without extra help.

Somehow a thread about us helping Digne getting called up to the French Squad turned into a thread about Everton players not being in the England squad.

We're on the way up in both reputation and player capability. Good times coming.

So there are players from Stoke, Southampton, Burnley, Derby, Borussia Dortmund, Leicester, Watford and Fulham in the squad, are these those bigger beloved by the pundits clubs you speak of ?

Had their not been any friendlies in between that tournament and the game be played in?

DCL deserved that same chance on the back of his goals in that same tournament and the fact that he became a premier league regular the season after it.

No idea if there were any other friendlies, DCL scored two, Solanke scored four if you mean goals make a difference.

The world vs Everton I see again.

Jagielka
Baines
Osman
Barkley
Rodwell (I think?)

All called up whilst playing for us. Can't think of any other English players that have played for us in that time frame worth a call up.

Baines started to be out of favour when he didnít transfer to United, then he became the scapegoat when we were dicked by Italy.

Barkley and Stones were unused squad members in 2016, but Stones got in the side as soon as he moved to City, and now Barkley has got recalled as soon as heís played a few games for Chelsea.

Baines didnít stop getting picked because he turned down United let's be honest.

Barkley got picked when he showed form for us and was injury free. He managed neither of those things in the last 2 years and hence hasn't been selected. Rightly so.

Nah, Barkley was still playing well when he was shunned, as was Baines, and that all started happening after we resisted Moyes.

Yes, I do believe a player as amazing as Baines wouldíve had a far better England career if he had moved to a more favoured club, you patronising arse.

He was dropped for the 2010 squad because Stephen Warnock got the nod ahead of him ffs, when Baines was absolute class.

In 2014, the tournament after weíd snubbed United, he was made the scapegoat after being isolated by Rooney refusing to track back, and was dropped after two matches.

Digne really does look a step above Baines now ...but great to have a reliable back up in Bainsey .

Can't wait to see Gomes and Mina at full tilt too .
