      With the tournament just around the corner now, I thought we could set up this thread for shits and giggles!

      So here we are, YOU are the manager. YOU have to pick the 23 players that YOU would bring to the Euros for your home country!

      Let's see if we have diverse opinions on who the bring and who to leave at home!

      So, first of all, choose your whole 23 man squad and then your starting 11!

      Best of luck!
      Gary

      Any 23 players from any position? For example, do you have to include 3 keepers as a minimum and 5 defenders etc.?

      Hmmm never thought of that. It's up to you! We'll see if our picks match up to those of the managers in a few weeks!

      Not a hope of Trapp even thinking of that formation or team but with the squad picked then i would like to see something like this if are behind and need a goal.For the future then that prick Stephen Ireland and also McCarthy would be in the team.
