The England Thread: It's coming home attempt 5782570


Recommended Posts

I like Southgate's plan, thoroughly smash any optimism England fans have so anything we do in the Euro's looks good.

If we wanted a game against a team we would smash we'd have not gone for Austria. 

They are a good test, good pressing from the front. 

 

I meant the fact they've smashed people on 3 occasions already :D

Quite like Grealish centrally for England. He draws so many players towards him when he gets the ball.

Oh. In that case, yeah. They're a bit tough so far!

Grealish won't be coming out for the second half. Whether it's cos he's subbed off or injured it's going to happen.

Grealish always gives the opposition that split second show of the ball to make them think they can get it and then moves or passes it and gets clattered. Good when he pulls it off but not great to be kicked around the pitch right before the euros.

So, we have Grealish who can win us a lot of free kicks in good positions...that would be nice if we had someone who is good at taking free kicks. Could have been in place of one of our 847 RB's

Lee Dixon has a point about no runs in behind. Think it’s why Sterling still has to play tbh.

yeah this team badly needs a Sterling, Sancho or Rashford.

Saka at RW for Arsenal makes a lot of runs in behind

This won't get boring every time England fail to score from a free kick or corner :D

When he's not going to be starting at the tournament this probably wont matter too much.

Neither of the wide players playing high enough for me Jeff. Too easy to defend against.

This has essentially what I've been watching for large chunks of the season

Saka linking up well with Grealish (Smith Rowe), a right footer at left back looking uncomfortable and the right back doing very little. Striker isolated too.

Well that was pretty awful. Getting kicked all over the place. Looking like that WC2014 friendly against Honduras, end up just hoping everyone gets off the pitch in one piece.

Mings is just a bit of a thug isn't he?

He is. Been saying it for years at this point.

This is going to be a great dress rehearsal for any team that wants to play defensively against England. It's going to be ****.

2 of Foden, Sancho and Sterling will play, plus Mount.

Very poor half from us. Far too passive, slow and not enough runners in behind. 

Feels like this could be copy and pasted from any of that past several of our performances :D We feel very predictable.

The only real thing of note Trippier had for England was his set plays and I can't recall him taking a single one so far today.
