Baines has been replaced again by Ashley Cole for some reason while Jagielka keeps his place in the starting XI. I actually don't mind since there's less chance of him getting injured now. I've given up on thinking any England coach will be sane.

BBC Sport - Serbia U21 0-1 England U21
I know that no Everton players were involved in this match but this was just embarrassing from Serbian fans, players and coaches. Serbia seriously needs to do something drastic because this outrageous behavior can not continue. It's ridiculous that people are OK with the continued racist behavior from Serbia. I mean, is racism OK in Serbia? Because I'm seriously starting to think that after multiple matches where there have been deplorable events, not to mention Serbia's less than stellar political/national history.
