I'm surprised that he made the 'team' ahead of players from the supposed 'Big 4', but its deserved recognition for our Ash.

Much deserved and shows how rapid and impressive his rise has been. Now just to cement a regular place in the England XI!

He's no doubt learned a lot this season from John Robbo, one of the best left wingers I've ever seen, and an expert at putting those pin-point crosses on a team mates (usually Peter Withe) head.

Fully deserved. And who said 9 million was over the odds? Probably worth double that now!
