Not feeling as much of a buzz about it with it being mid-season but will probably get into it once it starts. Kick off times are convenient at least.

Reece James out for 8 weeks. Trippier will be starting at this rate which is good news as it means Southgate can't play him at left back again.

Key dates for World Cup squads:

Friday, Oct. 21: Preliminary squad list (35-55 players) to be submitted
Monday, Nov. 14: Final list of 23-26 players to be submitted
Tuesday, Nov. 15: FIFA to offically announce all 32 squads

Southgate no doubt looking forward to finding 55 players to pick ahead of James Maddison.

Was watching the Bayern game when Davies went down holding his hamstring. I thought that there goes his chances at playing in the world cup. I seen Bayern put out a release saying he should be GTG for Qatar.

Look out Belgium.

Think that's largely reasonable. Would hope to see Tomori ahead of most of those other centre backs, Wilson instead of Abraham and no Henderson since he's finished at the top level now but don't suppose that will concern Southgate. Phillips will be an interesting one since he may be injury free but has barely played in the last 9 months or so, so should really stay home. Would prefer a backup LB too as really don't want to see Trippier playing there again.

Ultimately whether Maddison is in or out will be the main headline though.
