    Grealish and Rashford were SO good. if it was me in Southgate's position,I would, in average, start with Pickford, Walker, Maguire, Stones, Chilwell, Rice, Phillips, Grealish, Rashford, Sancho, Kane.

    Typical Scotsman not understanding English football and he's not alone as our manager seems to be part of the same mind set. Ward-Prowse has an engine, one of the best passers of the ball available to this manager. Grealish is a rare talent, takes players on unlike the rest who have to pass their way forward. Grealish commits players thus freeing up others and the manager doesn't want this type of player. Lingard has probably had the best season along with Foden, Mount and Grealish. Yet Rashford has a similar goal scoring record to the Liverpool goalkeeper, Hendersons not fit and will probably breakdown in the Euro's. Sterling again has not been in form and the manager wants to use this major Tournament to try and get them working?

    1-0 over Luxembourg? Victory is a victory but that's not impressive by Scotland. Dan had to throw one Jan's way, stating that every team is beating Norway lately. Norwegians no doubt are using the old tactic of letting all teams beat them in pre tourney friendlies only to turn it on once it really matters.

    Also, Tyrone Mings has stamped on at least two players' faces. Now if you or I do that, on camera with a million witnesses, we may go to prison. Instead, Face-Stamper Mings gets the callup. Southgate = Failure.

  42. Don Romeo

    Don Romeo7 days ago

    Well, Ben Mee should replace him. England won't win because they are the only country in the world who wouldn't pick Ben Mee as their starting CB. He is literally the best centreback in the world, almost single-handedly keeping Burnley in the Premier League. But Southgate has never even once givenhim the callup. Madness.

  43. Sam N Edu Medja

    Southgate did not want to put his potential starting team because there could've been a debate that could impack the team in a negative way; I am just guessing here anyway. I am sure the starting is practicing against the rest.

  89. Don Romeo

    Don Romeo7 days ago

    He's 'white'. Seriously. Compare the national ethnic makeup of Englishmen, with the ethnic makeup of the national team. These teams are picked race-first. Ben Mee is perhaps the best centreback in the world for the last 4 years. But he's too light. Mings (the multiple face-stamper) gets the nod. Did you know Sterling isn't even English? Count the number of young player callups under Southgate. Now look at the national average for ethnicity. Now count those callups, by anglo-saxon and 'other ethnicity'. It should blow your mind. Institutionalised racism right underneath everyones noses.

    This England squad will try so too hard to get into second round. Gareth Southgate has no technical abilities at all despite the so called Sanchos, Bellighas, Kanes etc. It will be a continued storyline of under achievement. They are even struggling to win friendlies. Unbelievable. These should have been games where players should be free of pressure and full of expression yet it's been disappointing last two games. Yall will we see what I mean when Euro starts.

  102. alexndr27

    alexndr277 days ago

    The way the draw is has made things pretty complicated, like with the world cup in Russia it might actually be better for England to finish 2nd in the group, but we still don't want to lose to Croatia. Its a tough scenario, I don't think friendly games really show too much especially when our best players are mostly being left out to rest.

  103. Yusuf Fulat

  105. alexndr27

    alexndr277 days ago

    I think the Croatia game in 2018 WC haunted Southgate for a long time, in the second half and extra time their midfield dominated the game because we didn't have enough protection in front of the defence. That's his thought process I think, I'd be very surprised if he plays 2 DMs against Scotland and the Czechs. The first game is so important.

    @TheImmaculateD well it has everything to with it. I'm saying changing ALL of your starting XI no matter what team you are you'll not be fluid at all and considering we are trying to make sure no more injuries occur we aren't going to attack fully either. Romanians XI and Austria's have all played together before, we haven't. Doesn't matter how good they are individually if all of your teammates have changed its going to be a lot harder

    @harrybishcrew it has nothing to do with that, we still had the better players but didn’t look fluid at all, going forward we looked in creative and lost. They created nothing.

    Tbf tho we played non of our starting XI except perhaps grealish. Even if you are Man City and do this you'll probably be quite rusty and not at all cohesive. Not defending Gareth but wouldn't look too much in to this performance. I'm being positive and just think Gareth is trying to make sure no one else gets injured, he already knows his XI and the players probably have been told to conserve themselves for Croatia, even the subs. If you look at every other nation they seem to have done the same and had quite meh results

    I just don't see the logic of playing players for two friendlies who are not even selected in the 26 Man squad. Maybe Southgate thinks not playing his strongest team will give his team more energy for euros and be a surprise for the opposition. But this was the same coach in nations league semifinals rested all his Liverpool and Spurs players for the Netherlands game, because they had just played the UCL final and said he wpild use them in final and they lost the game to Netherlands who played their Liverpool players who played in the same final and where at full strength. Southgate is still going to be England's biggest obstacle to getting far.

    I liked the line up. But Grealish should start ahead of Mount still and Foden in place of Rashford. Its nice to see he didn't play a back three. Defensive Gareth!

  171. harrybishcrew

    harrybishcrew7 days ago

    @Infinity Nexus Reviews no creative players in Liverpool except for firmino, sane, salah, TAA & Andy Robertson. Liverpool had the best attacking trio in Europe. Also whose talking about not wanting a back 3, I know I don't but no one has mentioned this. So apart from all of your argument being wrong you make a very good point

    PROBLEM IS WITH YOU CASUAL FANS YOU THINK YOU NEED AMAZING ATTACKING TALENT AND SKILL TO WIN. Your the same people who thought when Liverpool sold Coutinho and don’t buy an attacking midfielder thought they’re done for..... Liverpool won a league and champions league with no creative player in midfield. And England have always struggled defensively so why not go with a back three ? Gareth has done more in football any of you casual fans

    harrybishcrew7 days ago

    I agree Grealish should play but definitely mount too, mounts been unbelievable in past games for england(even better than Grealish at times) I'd be more likely to drop foden (I wouldn't drop him either tbh) but he normally hasn't shown up in an England shirt
