    England preview, Euros Dark Horses, Villa Chat and historical tweets.

    England preview, Euros Dark Horses, Villa Chat and historical tweets.

    In this edition of the freshest football phone in Nubaid Haroon talks with you about.....
    The England Squad for the Euros: With TAA being replaced by Ben White, and with Gareth Southgate admitting that playing three at the back in the last tournament was due to him not feeling Harry Maguire was ready to be part of a two at international level, we look at the potential shape of the England team for Sunday’s opener and whether defensive solidity will mean having to forfeit attacking prowess and flair.
    Euro Dark Horses: The Euros have thrown up the likes of Denmark and Greece as winners in the past, and after a crazy year in the sport it would come as no surprise if we ended it with a surprise winner of the tournament. So who are the dark horses, and which teams or players should we look out for?
    Villa Chat: With much expected from JG, and the imminent arrival of one of the stars of the championship last season who has chosen to opt for Villa over other teams in the Prem League, what does 21/22 hold for Dean Smith and the team, and is European glory their minimum aim?
    Historical Tweets and Sport: After news of his sexist and racism tweets from over a decade ago resurfaced, Olly Robinson has been suspended by the EWCB, prompting the PM and Sports Minister to comment on what they see as the “over the top” reaction to something which took place as a teenager and is only retrospectively being judged now. Should all sports men and women be accountable and ultimately punished for something said as a teenager? Why were these political comments not made when previous tweets from footballers were mentioned?
