And that's why I'd have Henderson as captain over kane and if Southgate gets himself a job for a top half team I'd be amazed.

Agree9 Disagree0

18 Jun 2021 22:27:16
Fingers crossed he ends up at United, Everton or City!

18 Jun 2021 22:29:13
Would rather Hendo keep fit for next season.

18 Jun 2021 22:47:52
Appalling. But then look at the players on the pitch and the manager. Kane is shocking and Sterling no better. Grealish falls down every time he’s slightly touched. But he played a fantastic ball to the subs! Worst England team in my lifetime. got to blame the premier league for lack of a decent pool of England players and managers. 4 points and through though - we’ll probably win it.

18 Jun 2021 23:31:47
Hendo should be Captain alrite but on the England side they are what they are. Always stroll through groups because the teams do be brutal but are still a way behind france, Belgium, Germany, Italy et all.

18 Jun 2021 23:45:25
Nope ENG have better players then France and Belgium put together. It's all fault of Southgate 😜.

19 Jun 2021 00:13:31
Southgate needs to start playing the best players, not just his favourites!

19 Jun 2021 01:17:19
They're all rubbish. its the players on the pitch tonight, but its the manager that was willing to take 4 rightbacks to escape the backlash of not taking the commonly regarded best rightback in the country to the tournament. Im actually happy Trent misses the tournament because that clown wouldn't have played him and i think that wouldve effected Trent even more. ImIrish so i couldn't give aToss about England, Trent and all the other Pool players are all i care about.

{Ed0666's Note - I respect you’re thoughts. When an British Asian echoes the same thoughts about supporting india or Pakistan over England they are considered a deserter or biting the hand that’s feeds them. It’s funny how Norman Tebbitt didn’t reference the Irish when he made that comment about cricketing loyalties.

19 Jun 2021 01:42:59
I’m convinced that, aside from at CB, England genuinely do have as good a squad of players as any nation other than France, who have a remarkable squad. But the FA and the decisions they make absolutely stink most of the time, hence why England will get nowhere near the trophy.

{Ed0666's Note - England are one great coach away from real success. Imagine what klopp or Pep would do with that squad. You’re right tho mate it’s an outrageously talented squad.

19 Jun 2021 02:47:18
To be fair there is no league so pep would blow everything up in finals by playing Pickford as a striker possibly.

19 Jun 2021 04:16:08
I agree with your point a great coach and success, but do you think Klopp or Pep would be the ones to bring it? I feel like those two coach to such a high standard they need the players at it every single day. I think even someone a good few levels below those two could achieve great things with this England team.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not joking they’d be better off giving the job to Chris wilder he’d get more out of them than Gareth has or ever will

19 Jun 2021 06:53:55
I stopped eat CJ I got halfway through the second half. England’s problem is the same now as it has been for years. We don’t have the technical ability or technical intelligence throughout the squad to play the way the European teams do. Italy are currently playing the way we are trying to and it doesn’t work because the English game isn’t like that. We are all about pace, power, driving at the opposition goal and whenever we get to a tournament we try to tiki taka it about. The talent is there in that England squad but until we start playing to our strengths they will always be disjointed and struggle for positive results.

19 Jun 2021 07:17:15
The problem for England is always the same, we don't choose a system and put the players in to make it work. We just pick a formation and throw players in and hope it works.

Kane speaks well but isn't a captain imo, Robbo showed what leadership on the pitch is he was everywhere.

He also wants to come short alot, but if no one takes the space he has left we are just left with an extra midfielder and no one to cross the ball to or to pass it forward.

Sterling hasn't played well for months but still gets in.

Chilwell doesn't get a look in at LB but has got to be our best LB. I'd play saka over Shaw!

The squad is also lacking a Tony Adams esque, belting out of the national anthem. Its all to nicey nice with very little heart.

But huge credit to the Scots last night as they should of won it and made their fans proud. Whereas I'm sat here wondering how this lot made it to a semi finals of a major tournament!

19 Jun 2021 07:56:11
Kane speaks well? Have you ever heard him speak Wyred 👀.

19 Jun 2021 10:40:54
Understand Southgate is very poor, but saying the England squad is poor, come on! They have a squad stacked with quality it’s just the players aren’t being used right by a clueless manager who was given the job on good manners and the easiest World Cup run ever. Only thing they can hope is they get knocked out early and get a new manager before the World Cup, or the ‘golden generation’ will be wasted once more.

19 Jun 2021 10:59:14
I d love to watch just one game, just one, where England are let off the leash. The cerebral, patient approach to International football has been going on for decades. It’s dull, it’s monotonous and it’s hiding behind the conservative idea that every international team must be shown respect on the field. Put a Bielsa or a young Klopp in charge of this talented English squad and they would blow most other teams out the water. Why do international games rarely entertain and rarely get past 3 goals? Why is aggressive, attacking football hardly ever seen versus countries? In my opinion it’s 90 minutes of risk management and timidity and managers like Southgate are brought in because they are able to bring those ‘qualities’ in their tactics.

19 Jun 2021 12:52:10
I disagree that the England squad is poor. It is not. It is the whole setup from top to bottom that is a shambles. England are not interested in actually winning major comp., IMO. Why? They literally act like they don’t care by boring the wrong manager and continue to reward mediocrity and failure.

Then, it seems the media have their fav players who they want to be picked regardless of form and then, the propaganda begins. Then, manager has to start shoe-horning player he may not want cos he is scared if he drops them and he loses. And we know the rest. Until this changes and the mentality changes, England will continue to fail. The End.

19 Jun 2021 06:15:43
Are they that good tho Ed? There’s no denying there are some quality players but I think the media hypes them way beyond their abilities. Maguire, Trippier, Stones, Mings, Shaw and Pickford are not outrageously talented in my opinion. Big fan of James though.

Every broadcaster seems to be literally obsessed with finding the next Gazza even going so far as having them recreate his goal against Scotland! Foden and Mount are very good, but Grealish is like the kid in school who thought he was better than everyone else and wouldn’t pass. Phillips and Rice are decent but are they any better than what other nations have?

Up top Kane is world class but seriously out of form after his injury and the likes of Calvert Lewin are nowhere near good enough to step up. Not really sure what Sterling offers very overrated player. So a few really good players and a few very promising but nowhere what the media would have us believe. In my humble opinion anyway.

{Ed0666's Note - yes mate I think they have some excellent players. Saka, Bellingham, Kane, Henderson, chillwell, mount, sancho, white. They have the nucleus of a really good team only if they had a manager who had footballing nous. I still for the life of me don’t know why he doesn’t play saka? Imagine Allegri with this squad?

19 Jun 2021 16:38:04
There a few excellent players and a few with excellent potential there no doubt. But some are severely out of form or not match fit and some- for me anyway- are just overrated. The rest of the squad are average. 100% agree that another manager would be a huge upgrade but I simply don’t think the squad are as good as the media and pundits say.

19 Jun 2021 16:40:09
WYred Kane speaks well, ha ha, sorry couldn't resist, ask Harvey Elliot.
