Ex-Blue Mings Set for England Debut
Monday, 14th Oct 2019 10:02
Former Blues defender Tyrone Mings is set to make his full England debut in this evening’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia (ITV from 7pm).
Mings was first named in an England squad for the September internationals but didn’t make it on to the field, however, it’s widely believed he will come into the centre of the defence for Michael Keane, twin brother of Blues striker Will, this evening.
The 26-year-old, who joined Aston Villa from AFC Bournemouth for an initial fee of £20 million in the summer, made 49 starts and 15 sub appearances for the Blues between December 2012 and June 2015 having been signed for £10,000 from Chippenham Town.
Mings, who hasn’t previously won a cap at any level, moved to the Cherries for £8.1 million with the Blues receiving a further £1.2 million following his Villa switch - with another £650,000 possible in the future - making him the club’s record sale.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
