Decent article here.  I used to go to Wembley following England, and have travelled abroad with them, but as per the article the breed of fan changed massively in the years following the turn of the century and the new Wembley opening.

Was listening to an interview with Eric Dier yesterday. By God he's boring!

Yep. The modern day, sanitised English professional. Yuck.

Oh dear, I've only gone and got a ticket to Scotland v England at Hampden in June. Could be a massacre. :)

I'll happily predict a dour 0-1, with a massive meal being made out of a couple of "feisty" challenges which were in fact nothing, but the game will be so dull the media need headlines from something

Southgate wants to play Stones in a holding midfield role.

What is it with England managers trying to squeeze certain players into the side? Square pegs in round holes again and again.

Didn't Keegan play Southgate in the holding midfield role in the last game at the old Wembley when we lost 1-0 to Germany and Keegan resigned after the game?

What is the actual point of tonight's game then? International friendlies are the most pointless games in world football.

Typical British mentality

Have a centre half who's decent on the ball and he gets put in midfield.

We did it with King and Ferdinand and it didnt work, so it's not going to work with Stones

Its embarrassing that we are even thinking it. You simply should not need to play players out of their position at international level
Heisenberg thoughts on Lukaku :
If he was English his value would be 10-15.

It's just the direction of shifting that is typically British, Guardiola and all the other hipster managers are mad for playing a midfielder in central defence.

This attempt at Dont Look Back in Anger is a pretty terrible tribute.
