He’s going to go to a big club, like Leicester.

A dull second half but job done and no goals conceded to date. A step up will be required on Tuesday night.

The dull dont concede football with the occasional exciting break might actually work in our favour against a good team. Though I fear they'll be able to make their dominance tell by punishing our defence.

Possibly. Perhaps the defence is better than we all think. Should be a cracker on Tuesday night. I would prefer Portugal over France or Germany. Kane isn’t doing enough.

Pray for getting Portugal. They were all over the place against Germany and I can see Sterling causing a lot of damage running in behind them. Germany and France would be very tough.

There’s too much of an emphasis on turning back to the CB and GK. Not too dissimilar to Stam days all over again

We cannot see the double pivot of Rice and Phillips again

United have been able to beat City fairly consistently in the league using that tactic

Snowflake Royal So little we didn't know.

England look good when they up the tempo and run at people.

England look shit when they aimlessly play negative tip tap in their defensive third.

England's defence looks very ropey

England's attack looks threatening when it gets in behind.

Saka really positive. Taking people on, running it, high tempo, direct, forward looking.

Grealish with the swagger.


I really liked the positive movement of Saka - the number of times he received the ball with his back to goal, and immediately spun and accelerated into space with the ball at his feet.

Interestingly* I heard a journo who was there say this morning, when asked how great it is securing so many games at Wembley in this tournament, that the England crowd are not helping us at all as they are being quite negative during the game, and it may have actually been helpful to have a break from that and play elsewhere

Did occur to me last night that however many fans there were in the ground (20,000?) they were hardly making themselves heard and being supportive.

Might just be a perception too, but there seems to be a more than proportional number of shirtless drunken tw@ts in the crowd.

It was said that you could hear some England fans booing the team during taking the knee, booing the team at HT and booing the team at FT, and they were negative towards Gareth Southgate during the game.

can't believe that doesn't propel England players to perform at their best?!
