England

Recommended Posts

Of course its great to beat Spain away and if Sterling can ever bring his club form to England then it'll give us a different level but in the end it was 2-3 and we had to soak up a lot of pressure. There are still things to work on as there were at the world cup

- The subs made by Southgate are never game changing, often they're quite negative and put us in the back foot. Other big teams seem to be able to change to combat our style quite easily though

- There is a lot of fanfare about the young side but why can't it be young and settled. It seems like 2-3 players are being given debuts every game now. We just seem to be giving players caps for the sake of it. 

- Midfield still looks like the big problem. Easily dominated in the final 30 minutes. We need a plan B to retain the ball if players tire or the opposition up the tempo.

Our youngest side in almost 60 years beat a Spain side who’d not lost at home for 15. Whichever way you spin it that’s pretty encouraging. 

Sometimes Southgate seems to place too much emphasis on youth although looking at the squad there doesn’t seem to be any glaring omissions. Considering the success of the younger age groups recently coupled with our decent run in the World Cup, this is the most excited I’ve been about England in years. Pickford needs to stop fucking about though.

It isn't Forest.

I’m pleasantly surprised it wasn’t a draw. I started to wonder if friendlies were rigged given the amount of draws there seemed to be.

Laid up in bed with a raging toothache. Got the radio on and they’re recapping the World Cup. 

Have to admit to having a lump in my throat listening back to the shootout against Colombia. What a fucking summer it was. I absolutely loved it.
