The lads look at Gareth Southgate's new contract, the England squad, and the last round of Champions League fixtures.
e debate the England squad which was named, which did not include Jamie Vardy and Gary Cahill. We also examine whether the likes of Ryan Sessengnon or James Maddison have done enough to warrant an inclusion.
We review who went to the World Cup and whether England have improved under Gareth Southgate. We debate the use of VAR, notably in the case of Northern Ireland and Italy not making it to a World Cup for the first time in 60 years.
At the weekend, Paul Merson picked his 23-man England squad for 2018 World Cup. The lads wanted to see if they could pick a better than former England International!!
The lads discuss the 30 Man Shortlist for the Ballon d'Or and attempt to choose a better England World Cup Squad than Paul Merson.
Gareth Southgate's England squad has raised a few eyebrows with some of his picks. Most notably, a 34-year-old Jermaine Defoe, Nathan Redmond, Jake Livermore and James Ward-Prowse.
England have struggled in major tournaments for a number of years now. Friendlies for me are a chance to try new things, and build and develop experience.
The V2 Football Podcast team have nominated who they think is the worst England Manager - Please Vote for who you think is England's Worst Ever Manager.
In any case, for both players the clubs seem to want loan deals, as both can be of value in the future. I think the best thing for both of them would be to go abroad.

I recently had the pressure to interview Former Leeds midfielder Mark Tinkler. Mark is a Sunderland fan and during the interview I asked about Sam Allardyce being linked with the England job.
Why can't we support the Englishmen? What makes it so hard for the English public to get behind English athletes. Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy... Is it the sportsmen or is it the public?
It looks as if The FA's search for a new England manager will have to be wider after Gareth Southgate declares he is not interested in the job. By Dan Tracey Originally posted at www.realfootballman.com
