The pom’s national football team haven’t been that successful in recent years but hey, from what we’ve just learnt, they do have some taste in music to compensate for their lack of trophies.
Some notable tastemakers in the team include Ross Barkley who’s on the Ben Pearce tip with his romper pick “What I Might Do”, Man Utd centre-back Phil Jones is showing his deep defensive swag through picking Duke Dumont’s “I Got U”, and Central Midfielder Cleverley is vibing the UK garage with Disclosure’s “You & Me”.
BUT every team does come with some right royal stinkers in the form of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, captain and DJ Stevie Gerrard who plans to move into DJing post football, and James Milner’s picks – see for yourself below!
