CONGRATS, JACK CORK!

For a certain generation, Jack Cork is what McEachran, Baker, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah, et al. are for later generations. (And that’s only counting midfielders.) On the books from age 9 to age 22, but never making it past pre-season with the first-team despite captaining the youth and the reserves as well (not even a bench appearance!) and allowed to leave on a cut-rate deal (less than £1m) to Southampton in 2011.

Makes me very happy to see him succeed not only at the Premier League but now, at the international level with a well deserved and overdue call-up to the England squad.

Congrats!
