Seneca the Younger

Tonight's Televised Football (Merged)

We probably have enough quality and pace up front to nick it in the second half at some stage, We just look a million miles off a team that will be a problem for one of the top teams to overcome.

Well 45 mins of shambolic effort lacking garbage

Take off your pick of Trippier , Keane , Mount , Henderson And Rice ASAP

Can we just swap all 5 like in rugby?

Roy Keane has it on the button

Southgate needs to point out a few home truths 

 

Southgate looking lost and asking his analyst man with the laptop FFS -  ‘ the modern game ‘

Open your ********* eyes Southgate

Two ways of looking at this team selection :-

a) most of them aren't up to it

b) I'd rather Southgate blood some of these players now rather than, (as in the old days of the FA), he waits until a month before the championships then realises that most of the  players are past it but at this late stage has no options.

With the 2 statues in midfield we're essentially playing with 9 men.

Add a half hearted , heart of a mouse , Danny Rose

I’d go with a. It’s only Mount and Sancho you can class as being “blooded”. He should be playing TAA, Gomez / Tomori, Maguire, Chillwell in every game they are fit leading in to the the next tournament. Rose and Trippier have had their chance and Keane is clearly not good enough as well.

Tomori another being over egged atm as well IMHO

England have qualified already - you can’t blame Southgate for looking at likes of Tripper, Rose and Mount. 
 

Also worth noting that Czech Rep away is never an easy game - It’s good to have a game where we don’t thrash someone 5-0 and learn nothing. 

Been much better this half so far.

‘Looking at ‘.  Rose and Trippier 

:blink:

How many times have they played ?

......45 Caps between them 

 

 

And we haven't qualified already

We will qualify though was my point - it’s not in doubt. Trippier hasn’t played for a while for England so good chance to see him since he went to Athletici and Chilwell has been preferred over Rose generally so again good chance to see him.

Let’s be honest , to date , Southgate has benefitted largely from Kane’s goalscoring and the improvement of Sterling under Pep

Tactically inept and strange selection tombolas

I just think we've looked lazy tonight Bob, lots of standing around waiting for the ball rather than finding some space by bloody moving! 😠

No creativity too.

Spot on mate - I was thinking ‘totally lethargic and shambolic’

Rose hasn’t broken sweat

 

And there we are  - got what we deserved

Shameful performance

Potentially first qualifying defeat in ten years or 43 games. Pretty good record. 

What relevance is that to tonight’s shameful performance ?

We were a shambles against Kosovo last time out

Wait for the stuttering excuses from Southgate 

Wouldn't it be refreshing to hear honesty,? 'We were shite!'

Bulgaria will beat us too if we play like this.

The Czechs do appear to have the ref in their pocket though, they are getting away with an awful lot!

Can't blame the ref, England have been outplayed most of the game.

2 defensive midfielders.

Maguire and Keane at CB are poor. I will say it, Maguire isnt that good.

Rose and Trippier worse than TAA and Chilwell.

Delph constantly being called up.

I dont think Southgate is as good as what the Country hypes him to be.

It’s an interesting England stat - it also shows that England have done pretty well to avoid nights like this over that time. 

Expecting the usual over reaction to this defeat.
