Re: England Squad

Can't speak for transfermarkt, but CIES do some pretty good work on this stuff. Having access to confidential information doesn't really come into it... it's all about crunching data, looking at market trends and publicly available basics like contract length.

Re: Where are they now?

Maybe... I always wondered whether emerton just hit a people patch which happened to coincide with his positional switch. Still... Shame for Lucas... I always liked him while he was here...
