England - Euro 2016 Thread

Recommended Posts

Looks like a 4-4-2 with Sterling/Ox playing narrow further forward so expect full backs to be very attacking.

5-0 i reckon

We're ****, but not that ****. We won't score though, as we just don't have strikers who score goals. Defensively we're quite decent

Lets just give it to whoever has the most caps like everyone else..... Oh it's still Rooney

Aye, it's almost always going to be him. Anyone know who Vice-Captain is? Hoping its Cahill.

Is that 15 year old playing?

No, he was left out. Better for him to get a chance with the under 21's

Former England winger Chris Waddle

BBC Radio 5 live

"England captain Wayne Rooney is not playing his normal game - he's trying to force things and it's not happened."

When are the pundits going to realise that this IS his normal game?

I think it should have been a penalty. Clear replay there.

Blatant dive, going down well before contact.

Rooney invisible so far.

We're making a really poor team look competent here.

Organised in defence as I expected them to be, but, he havent exactly used any creativity except for one or two high through-balls that the strikers couldnt control.

They are playing narrow and deep, and we are trying to thread the eye of the needle. If we want to play through the middle we need to widen the pitch

This team would be far better dropping one of rooney or sturridge, playing another wide man and having sterling as a number 10

Completely agree with you there, only thing I can't understand is why we're not allowing them to have the middle in terms of when we're attacking and speed up the play when we get the ball wide and get the wider players crossing the ball into the middle instead of slowing down and as you say try to thread the ball through the eye of the needle

Personally I'd drop Sturridge as he's far too concerned with the spectacular and is more interested in looking to shoot first and then spends ages allowing the defence to reorganise before he passes it. Plus he's basically unable to use his right foot

Having said that IIRC didn't Rooney complain about not playing up front in Fergies last season, saying he was a ST not a AMC

Terrible start of the 2nd half.

Nothing. Nothing! Will ever be as bad as out start to the 2nd half against Uruguay at the WC. Not sure what happens to us at HT, never seen us start well

No. I've got Germany Argentina on the other screen. Di Maria masterclass.

Rooney penalty goal to make everyone forget how awful he's been.

We'll hear all about an 'excellent captains performance'.

I'm sure ITV at least will try spin it that way, but that's not saying much I suppose. :D

Haha, they will spin anything into a positive.

Rooneys been quiet, Sterling has been good inspite of the system, not because of it, and we've made things extra hard for ourselves.

Good to see James Milner has taken over Gareth Barry's role of coming on as a sub to lose the ball and commit fouls
