FA Chief Executive Martin Glenn says he is open to the idea of clubs using Wembley, but in private there seem to be putting a lot of obstacles in the way.

"I won’t comment on clubs but if that’s an opportunity then we will follow it," he told reporters at Soccerex in Manchester. 
"We are there to provide help. We can run the FA for less costs and we can raise more.
"There’s a range of things. It’s primarily a football stadium, football matches are more profitable to run than concerts and other things. 
"We are the national stadium and seeking to use it more is what we are all about. We have an obligation to football. I’m not talking specific clubs but it’s in our interest as an association for clubs to redevelop their grounds, make superb facilities and if it’s possible to help them in that transition by using Wembley we are absolutely supportive of that."

Paul Gascoigne has picked his best England XI and explains his choices in the Daily Mail.

Togo manager Tom Saintfiet seems to have the same regard for AWOL striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who didn't bother ti turn up for his country and didn't bother telling them either. He has likened him to a bad date. He has announced that Adebayor will not play for Togo again, so that's his club and country who don't want him, coincidence?



A tear ago I wrote we needed to put together a young squad who would grow together and create a conveyor belt of talent all playing the same system so if a player left we would have a ready-made replacement to take their place.

My view was that we could not compete with the top four on wages so we have to find an alternative route and therefore, building a young side who could stay together and grow together, getting better at the system as they went, seemed the sensible solution. The were many dissenting voices who simply believed we can't compete players, but we unable to come up with an alternative strategy apart from dreaming of a Sugar Daddy.

We have started to build that young squad and we have started to tie players down to long-term contracts. It has been a summer of young players signing new deals and I'm delighted to say we can add to that list the name of Eric Dier, whose new deal lasts until 2020.

His words to the Official Tottenham Hotspur website upon signing his new deal echoed my thoughts.
“If you look at the Training Centre, the young squad, the new stadium coming through - the club is in a great place and as long as we stick together, everything is looking very exciting.”
