Ernie Cooksey Flag at England Matches

Image supplied by Ernie Flag Website

A flag made by a group of Oldham Athletic fans will be proudly displayed at all forthcoming England games (and Oldham's League one fixtures this season). Ernie Cooksey was an Oldham player who recently died as a result of malignant melanoma cancer at the age of 28. The flag's aim is to raise awareness of this cancer. Please take some time to visit the website (link above) or even have a chat with the flag owners if you bump into them.

Can England Reach 2010 World Cup Semis?

Trevor Brooking has said it is unrealistic for England to reach the semi final of the 2010 World Cup (see here), claiming there is a lack of depth in the squad. The fact we did not qualify for Euro 2008 is a reality check and I think Brooking is emphasizing the need for a reality check. Maybe it will motivate the fans to get behind the team. What do you think?
