For five* of them it's a step-up from the World Cup winning U20's into the U21's squad. (who to be fair were what, semi-finalists this summer?)

*Of course, Davies sat out of internationals this summer.

Daily Mail headline mentions a Spuds and a Slabs player in their headline despite it mostly being our lads that were promoted :wanker:

Just read that he thinks Hart is still the best keeper in the country. Amazing. He's conceded more than anyone in the Premiership, and has looked distinctly average. He can't get down to his left side, which has been a major weakness of his for a while now.

Being Welsh I don't care what happens to England, but the stupidity of managers like Southgate making these absurd shouts really irks me.

England XI vs Malta:
Hart; Walker, Cahill, Jones, Bertrand; Sterling, Henderson, Livermore, Alli, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Kane

Not sure why you have six strikers in the squad, and only one other midfielder (Chalobah). Oh wait, yes I do...Southgate.

Love the way they "control" simple ten yard passes by spinning the ball up over head height, so by the time it lands the Maltese defender will have taken one last puff from his ciggie, stub it out and saunter into position.

Just back from the game - yep getting a cab home was a twat of a job.
Fucking shite England performance . Worst midfield I've ever seen. How they won by 4 is just random. (Although technically malta are poop).
Nice atmosphere at the game though - a large portion of the away (England fans) started cheering on malta in the second half - weird but fun. Shame malta didn't get one as a consolation, although the stadium may have collapsed if they did.

Fabian Delph with 3 starts in two years for his club finds a place in that team. Lingard and Ox don't start for their clubs too. That's 3 out of 6 players in the midfield who don't start for their clubs and they are included in the side is appalling for an English national team.

As I think you know, I don't really follow football outside of Everton so I had a look on the PL website to see what English players were making assists and scoring goals this year and it makes for grim reading.

(DCL third highest English assist maker with 2 FYI).
Title: Re: England
Post by: Sir Stealth on October 03, 2017, 02:45:03 AM
Kane, Sterling and Rashford should technically be a really good front 3 for England I reckon.

Further back though I'm not full of confidence

Alli, Dier, Lallana as a midfield 3?

Stones and Cahill the centre back partnership?

Walker and Bertrand the full backs?

Hart still in goal?

I'm probably a bit out of touch with what Englands strongest 11 is

Would have thought Butland/Pickford a better choice for number 1 though (I still love Pickford despite fan opinion seemingly changing a bit on him)

Is Danny Rose still injured?
Title: Re: England
Post by: Cassius on October 03, 2017, 02:58:48 AM
It's the midfield where there's no creativity and no depth.

Whenever I've seen Alli play, I'm not sure what his position is - he's almost a no 10 that plays further forward. I wouldn't have him in midfield and I can see him being the new weak link for the national side as he won't be played in a role that allows him to contribute like he does at club level.

I don't think I've seen a good performance from Dele Alli in an England shirt yet. It seems to get completely glossed over because of how good he is for Spurs and nobody ever seems to question him.

there's only about 16 English strikers in the premier league looking at a list.
Daniel Sturridge
Harry Kane
Danny Welbeck
Tammy Abraham
Jamie Vardy
Marcus Rashford
Jermaine Defoe
Peter Crouch
Andy Carroll
Jay Rodriguez
Saido Berahino
Charlie Austin
Dwight Gayle
Troy Deeney
Andre Gray
Glenn Murray

And you cant exactly say any of those that aren't injured are performing that much better than DCL at present. The only exception could be Glenn Murray is scoring a few goals for Brighton, but at his age should we be giving him a game

To be fair to Southgate, the 3-5-2 does look like it quite suits England and he will be buzzing that the debutants did well last night

I may be biased but I really do think Pickford should be England's number 1. It's a statement for the future and also his quick distribution could help the team with Kane and Alli decent in the air and good pace and width in the wing back areas, as well as the blistering speed of Rashford.Would expect the full strength team to look something like

                 Pickford

         Jones Stones Cahill

Walker.                         Rose

             Alli Dier Lallana

             Kane Rashford

though I wouldn't be surprised if Sterling was shoehorned in there somewhere. And if Southgate went a bit more conservative and got Henderson in the midfield and pushed Alli up alongside Kane. I do think Alli plays better a bit further back, and also I have a long standing belief that Jordan Henderson is utter shite

Title: Re: England
Post by: velimski on November 11, 2017, 06:25:20 PM
Yea I agree that it's a decent team.

My main concern however is that Henderson will be shoehorned into the team at the expense of a creative player (Lallana, or Wilshire if fit.)

The team would be made up predominantly or Spurs and City players, which is fine. However it's imperative that there's some creativity in the team so that this core of players can replicate something close to their club form - ie having something vaguely similar to David Silva/De Bruyne/Eriksen.

Title: Re: England
Post by: ally2 on November 11, 2017, 07:57:45 PM
The problem, as always, will be shoehorning players into an eleven.

The team above looks good, but he'll want Sterling in there and he will play wide right. Then you need the balance but there's no one really good enough who pays naturally on the left. Lallana would be the best option but I think he's better slightly deeper. So then Rashford gets played there. We will never go 4 up front so there's only room for one striker in Kane. Then Alli doesn't fit well into a formation with a front three and a back three and so on.  Same story with every generation.

Width will be provided by the fullbacks in a 3-5-2 formation. The other midfielders would be playing fairly narrow, well certainly not as wingers.

Was very impressed with Trippier last night, would like to see more of him at right back/wing back than Walker in all honesty. Loftus-Cheek would be a good bench option in Russia as well if he continues his form at Palace

It's no wonder Spurs sold Walker. They get £50m for a guy who runs fast and they've Trippier waiting to take over who they paid about £4m for. Fantastic deal for Spurs.

Solanke called up to the England squad, this just confirms what everyone already knows, its not about how you play its all about who you play for, DCL has played a lot this season, scored some crucial goals and yet doesn't get considered

That shows the lack of quality in England more than anything. DCL may have played a lot for us, but he hasn't exactly lit the place up. Not sure what Solanke has done to be fair.

Solanke was player of the tournament at the wc. English fa have him highly rated for years so in was one ways it's good to see them progress through. It's hard to take tho that a lad with about 90mins pl game time under his belt, scoring none is in the England squad

Donít know how much of the tournament you watched but from what I seen, Solanke wasnít even the best English player.

No idea how he won that.

There are plenty of fit big name players from big clubs that DIDN'T get called up.

Sturridge
Ox
Walcott
Wilshire
Smalling
Shaw

Meanwhile the likes of Loftus Cheek, Harry Maguire and Jack Cork did.

Think people need to cut Southgate some slack.

He's got great potential. The point being, at this stage, he hasn't done enough to warrant a call up, especially in comparison to DCL.

Even for a 0-0 it was quite a watchable game by England standards.

Normally England games are a steaming serving of vile shite. It was nice to watch an England game and not feel ill and dirty throughout and afterwards.

Only friendlies though ....half that squad will be on Sun loungers when the world cup is on ....and the 3-5-2 will revert to a 4-2-3-1 ....with lallana ,Cahill ,Jones ,Smalling all starting .

As for Solanke getting an England call up before he's even started a handful of games in the prem fucking awful selection Southgate but not the worst you've used .
