What's everyone's favourite pub-restaurant in Suffolk? I'm not just talking about the ones you go for a quiet pint, I'm talking about the sorts of places you take your family for a nice meal on a Sunday, etc...
About a year ago, I discovered The Four Horseshoes Inn, just off the A140 at Thornham Magna. Wonderful selection of beers and wines, fantastic carvery on a Sunday, and excellent home cooked food all week long. I'm told it's the oldest inn in Suffolk, and with it's thatched roof, quiet beer garden and a well situated in the middle of the pub, it's got real character.
I'd love to discover more of these gems and enjoy them this summer.
Back four and keepers speak for themselves. Notable absentees include Michael Carrick and Adam Lallana - but it's a competitive midfield for places, and I feel they've just fallen a little short this season. Wilshere is a gamble - but he's our most technically gifted midfielder when fit. Milner may raise eyebrows - however, he's the top assist maker in the Premier League in 2016 as well as being a hard worker with plenty of experience. Barkley and Sterling haven't lived up to their potential this season, but have star quality and can make an impact for England. Drinkwater will bring spirit and momentum. In attack, many will question my inclusion of Rooney, but he is the national team captain and his place is a dead-cert for me. The inclusion of Carroll is based on the possibility of us needing a 'plan B' in some games.
Starting XI for Russia: - Hart, Clyne, Smalling, Cahill, Rose, Dier, Henderson, Sterling, Rooney, Alli, Kane.
Just wondering whether it's possible to field a competitive team of academy graduates currently. Would love to see Mick give it a go in pre-season. By my reckoning, we could put out a half decent team at the moment:
