Delph can also play left back and has been in a squad of winners.

Wilshire on the other hand, hasn’t.
Delph has been decent for Man City this season, and as said above, can play left back too.

Wilshere is to injury prone and inconsistent to be considered unfortunately, great player on his day but that doesn’t happen enough.

Agreed. It's almost like an England manager might be picking on merit more than name this time. GS has been criticised for some "same old, same old" selections, but he has introduce younger players. He hasn't been afraid to try out someone from an "unpopular team". Leaving JH and JW out is big calls and big indication that he's choosing a squad that;

a) should be pretty fit and match fit
b) generally a regular starter for their club

He'll prob go and include Rooney now i've said that!  Pint I think he'll include Walcott though, has played pretty well and bagged a few for Everton. Seeing as O-C is out, and yes he's been around the England set up while but he seemed revitalised and fresher this second half of the season, since joining the Toffees. Could do alright.

This could actually go in either thread as my sentiments are rather mixed....

I broadly agree with the sentiment behind this, but I don't think anyone is considering the effects its going to have on jobs and the high street.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44148285

The bookmakers have possibly over egged the argument but it is going to lead to closures of hundreds of betting shops all over the place, especially in secondary shopping streets and centres which are already struggling like hell with voids.

We did some work a few years back for some of the big boys and the only reason for the expansion of their estates was for these units as the law states there can only be 'x' no. in any store, thus they opened more stores, the majority of these will be nonviable with this law change and thus will close with the associated loss of jobs, rents and rates revenue and more ghost streets in towns.

No idea what the solution is but this is going to be a massive hit for retail once again, I look forward to the government imposing a limit on the amount one can spend in the pub and off-licence with interest.

I get that there will be job losses, but those jobs (and billions in profit) have come at the expenses of livelihoods and families. It’s truly detestable how unethically that money is made in my opinion.

As someone who has struggled (and still do) with gambling problems in the past I can see why it’s haopening. Ironically, I never touched them machines as I thought they’d be addictive but still managed to waste most of, sometimes all of my monthly wage on the horses.
There have been times where I wished there wasn’t a bookies anywhere in my town so I was unable to go in at all, let alone set a limit I could bet.

On the flip side, the woman that works in my local bookies has been there, or in a bookies in the town for 30+ years. A lovely lady who I would hate to see lose her job.

As I said I generally agree with the sentiment but the policy seems more to grab headlines rather than actually be thought about.

You can plough cash into a fruit machine whilst getting pissed at a fair old rate (thus potentially feeding two vices at once) or it will just move it all online where you can circumvent many of the rules by using various accounts simultaneously.

If the government do plan to use the law to manage problem of addiction limiting spend in pubs and banning off sales would protect a much larger target group and also have the added advantage of saving the NHS a small fortune!

I share your concerns with much of this re economic impact except for the "Ghost Towns" bit - town centres that consist of rows of betting shops, pound shops and charity shops (broken up with the odd KFC rip-off) are pretty much ghost towns already. They just don't know they're dead yet. They might be better with voids as at least then the problem of a dead town centre void of any meaningful economic activity would be clear for all the actors to see and be forced to admit. And hence hopefully doing something about it. Rather than being able to sweep the problem under the carpet

I think most people have addictions to something or other.... I know I certainly do. Being aware of it though is important, because it enables you to do something about it, especially if the effects are malign.

A regards the lady, the days when you could work in the same place for donkeys have largely gone.... however the skills she has gained in that time are probably transferable, and people who have to rejob as it were, often enjoy a change after the initial discomfort.
