    Dropping Woakes when he's in this sort of form would be madness, and probably a huge psychological blow to him too. He's not any poorer overseas than the rest of the team. For that matter, there are no more than a handful of players around the world these days that seem to perform well on overseas tours. And Woakes is a massive Villa fan, so I'll cut him extra slack

    Hugely unfair if they drop someone to make way for Stokes. Not sure a week or two in court is exactly ideal preperation either! Mind you, I'm not so foolish as to expect common sense from the ECB...

    Jonathan Kodjia

    So many strikers never get back to the levels they were at before a bad injury, especially later in their careers. I hope this isn't the case with Kodja, but it does seem more and more likely.

    Ha, yeah I thought that too

    Man, that verdict must have cost the ECB a fortune

    Hats off to Rooney, didn't think he was capable of running this far any more. That's some last minute winner!

    John McGinn

    Watchind a few vids of McGinn, looks pretty exciting. Him and Jack will work well together I reckon.

    I'd have guess about 46, but judging by wikipedia it's probably a couple of million! Released about 30 albums

    His wiki page reckons 5 million as a solo artist. I reckon the whole thing is questionable, but it's just an interesting bit of fun at the end of the day

    Hey I didn't make the map! Also I haven't live in England since 2000... I don't even know who several of these artists are. But a quick google tells me that Barlow's solo record sales are over 10 million, so I reckon that's gotta take some beating.

    I'm not sure anything of this nature is ever that accurate though... record sales are notoriously difficult to collate, especially on a worldwide basis. You find wildly different figures for the same act all over the web. Read a very convincing article once that the most popular artist ever was Bob Marley - officially he'd sold about 75 million records, but best estimates of sales of unofficial pirated albums ran into the many hundreds of millions.

    Slash as part of Guns'n'Roses maybe, but certainly not as an artist in his own right. The criteria seems to be where someone has grown up rather than necessarily where they were born.
