  2. If you want high scoring games, look no further than the Estonia Cup. 16 17 even 22 are regularly scored in games
  3. @Chris why was you surprised? Doesn't matter how poor the league is 13-0 is a demolition. PSG Barca Madrid Bayern etc don't do this. I mean it was 6 when they went down to ten men? I remember a few years ago Real Madrid faced criticism for scoring 9 v ten men. So I wonder if Ajax will? It can be a very damaging scoreline for players especially if there were young players in there.

  6. @CliftonMagpie it's not about the margin of defeat, the fact was Denmark dominated us and made us look weak. We couldn't even break on them because of the defensive shape. Same with the games against Iceland and the reverse fixture against Denmark. As I've said, I'm not saying he should go. I'm just getting fed up of seeing him pick the same under performers despite having the "form over rep" motto and playing a defensive shape that has failed on more than one occasion. As for the penalty, Pickford (one of Southgates golden boys) was at fault for the penalty.

  8. @allardyces tash he did restore passion, you're right. But now he's burning his own bridge that he built. He has his favourites but that's why fans are angry, he says players are picked on form. He's going against his own points. @upthepies the only time players have been given a real chance apart from the world cup, have all been friendlies. Now he's been in the job awhile, he's ignoring them.
  9. @liampie i get the training thing but the formation hasn't worked on numerous occasions, players have performed and not prformrd, he needs to realise this!
  10. @DonnyNotts 100% we should stay English. We haven't had a good manager since Sven. The solution is for Southgate to start playing players on form, drop those who aren't and stop playing negative football. Kane drops deep because he's not a number 9 in this England set up. It was clear against Denmark when Mount had ball he should of been in the 6 yard box but came close and scuffed it.
  11. @Alex that's my point, managers like Southgate come in and say they are gonna choose form over reputation but they always go to the reputation side of things. Southgate is capable, he's shown it in the World Cup (apart from playing Kane when he was struggling after the Colombia game) and the Nations League last year. All he has to do is change formation and make sensible changes when the game is crying out for one. 100% Ancelotti will change Pickford when he can. Southgate has the power to drop him without wasting wages.
  12. @liampie he doesn't though, he's wasting a lot of talent by calling them up with no proper shot. He may have done in the past but now he's picking his regulars. I'll happily have him in the next tournament BUT only IF he changes formation and gives players like Grealish who deserves chances to play and drops Pickford and Co. He did well in the World Cup because of the formation but then he changes it, we did well. Then it was changed again and is we're going backwards. 2 formations that worked he changed and the one that doesn't he keeps.
  13. @TheSkipper experience on the international scene means nothing when you're in bad form. He even brought it into the England squad against Spain last year when he fouled a Spanish player. Again last night he's the reason walker gave a penalty away. Pope deserves his shot and if these are 'glorified friendlies' then why not experiment?
  14. @TheSkipper Hence, why I don't buy into Southgate's "form over rep" Pope and Henderson are in much better form. Along with many others.
  15. @Chris few months ago, i would have agreed with you about him being given more time but it's not just the Denmark game last night. 1-0 against Iceland through a late penalty and they missed theirs minutes later. There was no show in that game. Followed by another mediocre performance against Denmark in a 0-0. We got lucky against Belgium, they had an off day and on a good day they'd have had 5/6 in a game like that. The only recent good game we had was against Wales and even that wasn't brilliant, they were playing a 3rd string team really. If they had the likes of Bale, Ramsey and Co. available probably would have struggled. The good thing about the Wales game was the fact we had Grealish, who took his well deserved chance. I'd love to know where the experimental team comes in to the Nations League because the team he selects for these 'glorified friendlies' are his strongest 11. His go to players. The team last night apart from Sterling & Trippier being unavailable is his strongest 11, it's the same team that beat Belgium. The Nations League is competitive as commentators said. Teams are playing strong teams because it's a competition. Jordan Pickford, just like every other goalkeeeper before him, has got complacent and with complacency comes mistakes. Pope after that game against Wales and last season is miles ahead of Pickford. As for Maguire, United are giving him time out because he's obviously not right mentally since the summer but Southgate still sticks him in. 2 games against Denmark & 1 against Iceland and we played defensively. Come on, something's wrong about that. Yet he doesn't change formation or players. He sticks with the same and the same result occurs we struggle to score. It doesn't take a genius to think we're 1-0 down we need a creative midfielder, Grealish on. There's actually alot of good English defenders but because they aren't in the top 6 they won't get a look in. Lewis Dunk for example. At first, he did give players chances and call young players up but now as he's settled in the job he's become like every other England manager and chose reputation over form. But when you look at the game time given to these players who are new call ups which he is supposedly credited for, it's very little. Ings, Calvert Lewin, Pope, Coady, Grealish all deserve shots but aren't given much chance. Apart from a friendly against Wales.
  16. @Super_Danny_Allsopp Exactly, there's so much talent being wasted up in attack. I'm fine with defensive midfielders but not 2 of them when we have a back 5. The wing backs don't even get utilised enough. The other thing is Kane should not be a lone striker, he drops to deep.
  17. Birmingham City1-0 Sheffield Wednesday Rotherham United 0-2 Norwich City Portsmouth 3-1 Doncaster Rovers Charlton Athletic 2-2 Wigan Athletic Walsall 1-1 Exeter City Mansfield Town 1-2 Bradford City Weymouth 1-1 King's Lynn. Joker. Solihull Moors 2-2 Boreham Wood
  18. As controversial as this may be, I'm getting fed up with Southgate and his negative tactics. Not saying he should be sacked, but something needs to change. His whole thing is supposedly about picking players on form but yet we seem to see the same few players play game in game out even if there are players in better form. Pickford, Kane, Maguire. The selected 3. Grealish came on in the 0-0 v Denmak last month and created more chances in 15 minutes than any other player did in 90. He also won man of the match and was involved with the goals against Wales in his first start for England. What more does the guy has to do? Maybe if he was a defender or defensive mid, he might stand a chance. Southgate loves them. 5 defenders, 2 defensive midfielders and they wonder why we are struggling on the attacking front despite attack being our strongest point. Tactically he seems to get it wrong and tonight is up there with the worst. Maguire gets sent off, rather than going to a flat back 4 and keep Maitland Niles and Reece James who were both dominant on their sides, Southgate chooses to sub Maitland Niles for Mings and goes to the flat back 4 switching James to the left. Nick Pope & Dean Henderson are miles ahead of Pickford. I mean Pickford pushed Walker in the penalty lead up. Unless Southgate switches his tactics, I can't see us progressing. Would of thought the win against Belgium would have boosted us but now it feels like it may have been an off day for Belgium and a lucky result for us.
  19. From the report I read, it's not the Premier League but instead it's Liverpool, Manchester United and Co. It's all to do with power. It will damage the football system in England all to protect the 'elite' top 6 in English football. Yes the EFL will get funded but you can guarantee that they will not be able to utilise the money given because they will bring harder restrictions to the point clubs will struggle to gain any head way. This is one of the reasons Newcastle failed in their takeover because Liverpool and Manchester City complained and the Premier League listened. https://twitter.com/talkSPORT/status/1315620732236230658?s=19 The Henry Winter take is absolutely bang on.
  20. @DangerousSausage actually got decent predictions for a change could do with more of these

  25. I think England have good Individual players but not a great team overall. Likes of Germany France Spain etc rotate their call ups and give chances where as we stick to the same good players that we have because we can't bring players up to the standards like other nations do.
