England V Poland U21 (Merged)

Recommended Posts

17,000 plus tickets sold for the under 21’s game next week, sounds like a great crowd anyone know the average attendance for England U21’s?

Last few matches,

England v Netherlands at Norwich, 16k

England v Andorra at Chesterfield, 7k

England v Ukraine at Bramall Lane, 21k

England v Romania at Wolves 15k

England v Scotland at Middlesbrough 20k

England v Latvia at Bournemouth 8k

England v Italy at Southampton 11k

 

Most of those were competitive fixtures, not a friendly like the game next week so it'd be great if we top the lot

Will any of the blue few swallow the bitterest of pills and come to Ashton Gate to support their national team?

I'm going with one. He also came to the rugby with me for the Gloucester game. Must be nice for them to visit a proper stadium I suppose.

Goalkeepers: Freddie Woodman, Angus Gunn, Dean Henderson.

Defenders: Jake Clarke-Salter, Jay Dasilva, Dael Fry, Lloyd Kelly, Jonjoe Kenny, Ezri Konsa, Fikayo Tomori, Kyle Walker-Peters, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Midfielders: Harvey Barnes, Hamza Choudhury, Tom Davies, Kieran Dowell, Phil Foden, James Maddison, Ryan Sessegnon.

Forwards: Tammy Abraham, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Demarai Gray, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ademola Lookman, Reiss Nelson, Dominic Solanke.

It's a very good squad. Quite a bit of Premier League and top Championship experience in there, plus Nelson who has tons of minutes in the Bundesliga this season. Fantastic chance to see some of England's future at AG.

A lot of good talent there. Looking forward to seeing Hudson-Odoi and Foden.

I’m looking forward to seeing them two Nelson and Wan Bissaka especially as I thought Wan Bissaka should’ve been in the senior team

I don't think I've seen a stronger u21 side than this for quite a while. When you consider that youngsters such as Jadon Sancho, Alexander-Arnold, Rice and Rashford are all 21 or younger, we really do have some fantastic players for the future.

Since I've missed the early bird discount, please open up W5 or W6 so we can sit in a decent seat. I've never sat in the Upper Lansdown and I'm prepared to go to the wire on this. Possibly. Well, at least until next Tuesday.

it’ll be interesting to see so many promising young players, and seeing how they progress over the next few years.

The last time the U21s played at Ashton Gate was in August 2010, and then this was the team - quite a few familiar faces, one very!

Are many Gasheads Polish then?  

Imagine land prices and development costs are much cheaper over there than here in the UK... Perhaps the Gas might consider relocating to Gdansk or somewhere else in the Baltics.?

A nice modern steel stadium (bit dearer now though thanks to Lech Walesa and unionisation, but still cheap in comparison) 

The weather in winter will ensure that the true blues remain true blue through and through....

It'll be perfect for them, Gdansk Rovers has a nice ring to it... 

They're still potless  at the moment though, no matter how cheaply the move might be.... But not for long, the cash will be rolling in just as soon as I get this 'crowd-finding page set up.. 😏

Back Row: Sturridge, Jones, Rodwell, FIELDING, Mancienne, Henderson, Obama ;)

Front Row: Walker, Rose, Cleverley, Moses

Victor Moses is an interesting character.

Though a regular for England from U16-U21 levels he opted to play for Nigeria at full level. He'd previously fled Nigeria as an 11 year old after both his parents - his father was a Christian pastor - were killed in religious riots when rioters invaded their home and slaughtered them.

Moses only survived because he was out of the house playing street football. After being hidden by friends for a week other relatives paid for him to travel to England to claim asylum.

He was placed with a family in South London and went to a school just streets from Selhurst Park where he was quickly spotted by Crystal Palace.

Quite a story, with perhaps an unlikely ending that he'd opt to play for Nigeria after the murderous events that forced his departure.

As an aside; time was when only "noble" families hyphenated their names on marriage so as to ensure the famous family name lived on. In recent year there's been plenty of "common" sportsmen with hyphenated names.

Did City's Forbes Phillipson-Masters start this trend?

Due to not being good enough for England probably, a choice of Nigeria or no International Football

A symptom of social change. A new reason for hyphenation. No longer a signifier of class, yet still a social marker.

Maybe, or just overpowering loyalty to his country of birth, despite everything.

Friends and relatives saved his life and secured his safe passage England and it looks like his decision must have been these are the people he truly identifies himself with.

They must be very proud of him.

You can imagine Rovers fans getting to the fan village, seeing the live music stage and starring in awe at our amazing new stand. Until they realise that it’s actually behind them..!

In the 2010 U21s 2-1 win over Uzbekistan, the MOM from this line up was apparently Jack Rodwell, with the full England manager Fabio Capello watching on from the stands.

Rodwell’s careered has since drifted, compared to others from the 2010 team, most of whom have gone on to feature as regulars in the full squad. I wonder who, from Thursday’s line up, will do the same. 

Southgate you’d imagine would want to be in attendance.

I’ve done my bit to encourage kids to come . I look after a youth football club and we’ve used our club reserves to pay for  3 coaches to transport kids and adults to come for the game . Total of 130 coming - many for the first time to any kind of game .  Look out for our Coalpit Heath banner and everyone dressed in orange ! ( our team colours )

Im new into the role and the previous chairperson was a sag so wouldn’t dream of doing anything like this.. it won’t surprise anyone that many aren’t coming due to the location - sad really . 

Once they see the Mecca that is Ashton Gate, then I’m sure they’ll keep coming back ..

£6 for Joe (£1), me (Free) and my dad (£5 over 65).  £12 to park in Wickes.

Cheap night out at £18...and a chance to see Lloyd and Jay in England colours.

We are gonna be in Section A8 (rather than A4), so will be close to the players.

Was Matt Hewlett the last u21 at Ashton Gate....did he get on?

Missed out on tickets for this up to now for various reasons, and now struggling to get 4 together, but the east end corner is showing up as unreserved as usual? Do we know this for sure?

Perhaps @Matt Parsons BCFCSLO can answer?
