Recommended Posts

STERLING do something right FFS, he gives useless passes, and makes ridiculously stupid shooting decisions.

Even if it wasn't blocked, Sterling's shot would have barely made it to the goal.

Think he was trying a reverse pass tbf

We seem to do quite well pressing and winning the ball back but the attackers just feel out of sync.

I know it's like beating a dead horse at this point but Sterling and Alli need to buck their ideas up.

Loftus-Cheek for Alli, not convinced he is 100% fit.

He's not in the game at all. Sterling trying to do his job for him, and doing that and his own badly

I'm not getting on the 'Sterling is terrible' wagon, but he's just... weird.  Seems to fall down on the absolute basics so many times and makes frankly terrible decisions regularly.

Going to say he's far better making runs and stretching teams than he is dropping deep and trying to show anything technically clever or intelligent on the ball.

Yes, a bit boring so far.

Sterling has an identity problem. He thinks he's Englands answer to Neymar. 

Neymar at least dribbles, draws the foul, creates an assist or it's a Bollywood Moment. 

Sterling just gives the ball back to them after dribbling.

I'm not sure central forward role is Sterling's best position. Much better out wide but no place for him there in Southgate's system

He's a brilliant player. And out of Alli and Lingard he's the only one asking for the ball  but by God he's been absolutely ****ing terrible this half

If our forwards could play football like the defence we'd have quite the team!

He just tries to do too much almost every time he gets the ball, just needs to simplify his game sometimes, a simple pass instead of trying to beat 2 or 3 players would help.

Maybe that's why Lothar's checking his ticket

Terrible ball by Kane. He had Sterling. 

That would have been a worse ball!   :D

Falcao is too isolated upfront, it's difficult to imagine Colombia creating chances from open play unless England are caught sleeping.

Kane has seen what Sterling has been doing, he wanted to show him how to draw a foul

In control here but the 3 behind Kane need to do a hell of a lot more.

Behind kane? Thats the problem hes either too deep or too wide and the other three seem in advance of him. I. E. We have a throw...he occupies the line whilst sterling is around their D! I understand hes more likely to win a flick on than sterling... But either bring maguire up or alli out... We want kane in the centre around the box as he can be lethal with either foot!
