Good morning!

Let's play a game in honor of England probably playing 4-4-2 with Wayne Rooney as some sort of midfielder.

If we had to sign two strikers to play with Harry Kane, leaving us with three strikers, but only two of the three could actually play striker, who would you sign, and where would you play them? I'm restricting you all to a 4-4-2, so this doesn't become an ode to esoteric, long forgotten formations you read about in Jonathan Wilson's Inverting the Pyramid.

We get it. You're all football nerds.

The game stands. Three strikers must play. Who are the three, and where does the odd man out play?

And now for the "news":

And proceed to throw some shade into the press release announcing it. That's cold.

He ghosted past three players in the FA Cup final like those defenders were glorified Championship players or something!

If only because he knows that Eric Dier, if properly motivated, will put in crazy tackles, continuing the Ginger Prince's lineage.
