Collins in Welsh squad

Postby poplargeezer on Mon May 09, 2016 3:29 pm

James Collins is in the Wales squad for their pre Euros training camp.
Will his recent injury and nlack of match practice preclude him from the final cut?

I'd be very surprised if he's not included. Wales isn't exactly awash with Premier League players.

Ginge obviously deserves a chance to make the full squad.

Clearly good enough to play for them.

If Wales can keep it tight Bale could be the superstar, Williams, Davies, Allen, Ramsey are all solid players

I see the England v Wales game is a 2pm kick off on a Thursday.
Hard to think of a worse kick off time for this game.
Book your time off now.

Very pleased for him! Felt he might have missed out given the lack of game time for us recently. But fully deserved as he has been superb for us when he's played this season.

Delighted for the big ginger thing, top bloke, and gives his all, and knows how to defend. Hope he has a cracking tournament.

From my inside knowledge at the FAW earlier in the campaign Ashley Williams and James Chester were the preferred choice at CB but Ginge started to really come into his own and force his way in to starting line up.

If Williams wasn't the captain he might have kicked him out as he has been very poor.

Ginge was always going to be in the 23

Not sure why Chester why play ahead of Collins. He hasn't played much for WBA this season and hasn't been that good when he has got a game. Collins on the other hand has been immense and should start alongside Williams.

He's got pick Collins over Chester. I'd have a back 5 with Collins, Williams and Davies in the centre and Taylor left wing back and Gunter or Richards at right wing back. Ramsey, Allen and, if fit, Ledley in the middle and Bale and Robson-Kanu up top, the latters movement would help make space for Bale and he is also able to pull out side and go at full backs. On paper Wales are no World beaters but this is international football.

If we don't lose to England we'll get through the group.

A Williams/Collins CB paring in arguably on par defensively with anything England has.

If our man shows the wonderful club form that was evident during our mid-season injury crisis, then Wales are in as good a place as the can be.

Good luck Ginge

Ginger Pele to score the winner in the final with an overhead kick!

Seriously though, good on him. A dream come true for him I'm sure
