  1. Mark H

    It came home. Hope, hope came home

    To many attacking midfielders vacating the middle = Kane coming deep Also means we can't play from the back, as our only midfielder is marked our pressed
  2. I'm happy with what we've achieved. I think Southgate only needs minor changes to a system that isn't quite good enough yet... Our biggest problem is midfield. We have 1 midfielder, and 3 AMs running away from the ball. Kane then drops deep to fill that gap. 3 is too many.... It also hinders our ability to play out the back as Henderson is our only choice for our defence to play to, and he can be marked or outnumbered, so we have to go long We needed another man in the middle last night, so the formation becomes a more natural 343. Ideally you want that to be Henderson and a player that is happy playing the ball in tight positions, playing the ball forward and being sensible enough to offer numbers in the middle. Not Dier and Henderson. But Henderson/Dier + Another. Then we choose which 2 players (Lingard, Sterling) to play behind/with Kane.
  3. Don't be Meh?! Footballs Coming Home!
  4. What is this feeling? I'm not used to it
  5. In fact, I think it should be a cracking 3-3 draw tonight. There's no way this is going to be 0-0 with those lineups.
  6. Belgium to line up in a 3 6 1 formation with no wide defenders?! T Hazard and Chadli as wingbacks?
  7. Nothing wrong with the line up. Excluding Kane its not massively weaker, but we now have more pace up front.. We're a squad full of similar abilities.
  8. This. I'd be well annoyed if my manager told me to lose, shows no belief you can beat any team to become World Champions...
  9. Also, how do the players understand that. Let England in. 'Yo, KOMPANY, HERE!' 'Let Vardy past you if he gets in' 'If you get chance to make a tackle, dive out of it' Or is it all a deliberate ruse to make us comfy and then to smash us!?
  10. WTF? I missed that. Even if you don't say it to your team it can't do wonders. LADS, lose this one because you can't beat Brazil or France in the quarters. It's pretty pathetic and that's my concern, I wouldn't lose for my 5aside team if someone told me we would get a slightly easier tie in the next round... MADNESS
  11. I genuinely get your reasoning, and part of me likes it. But I don't know how you train that into the players. I would just play to win, and whatever will be will be. Cheers for the food for thought tho (Y)
  12. 3 - 3 draw. Shirt off to celebrate, booking every time
  13. Ok, I actually like your explanation, and I can only counter it with the simple fact that I don't believe you should try to lose a game of football. Columbia are definitely the team I fear the most but if we can't beat them then we aren't good enough to win it. I think we are more than capable of beating Columbia, more so that a Germany, Spain or Brazil but you play whoever you play, and I wouldn't want to try and manipulate that.
  14. Does anyone actually think we should lose? Apart from all the clickbait journalism, does anyone actually think we should lose? MADNESS?!
  15. I also don't think England want to lose. That's madness. What mentality does that say we have. Also shows massive arrogance. I presume Belgium are the same. The reason its a massive discussion is that we have nothing else to talk about before the game, because there is no pressure, so lets go slightly overboard with the 'PERMUTATIONS' discussion
