Euro 2016


Recommended Posts

Let's face it, how much strength in depth do we have? If we did we'd have more English players at the top of the Premiership in all positions. That we haven't speaks volumes.

 

Its true, an example is callum chambers at arsenal, bought for sixteen million, and now wenger is thinking of sending him out onloan next season.

Wouldn't take sturridge until he can sort his head out. Can't risk him waking up the morning of a big game and not quite feeling up to it.

 

Agreed, moody individual, doesnt seem or show any any enjoyment in playing football.

I think his goal-scoring record for Liverpool shows that he's more 'up for it' much more often than not.

 

If he's fit enough to play a part he absolutely has to go as he's far too good a player to miss out.

Lots of strength in depth in midfield and up front, and also at full-back. It's only the central of defence that is a problem in the side, and part of that is only because we've been blessed with some outstanding centre-backs over the last 20 or so years when you consider the likes of Adams, Campbell, Ferdinand and Terry.

It's what he's affectionately known as and has been throughout his career in England. If the man himself is offended I would gladly apologise, as its you waving your knickers at everyone I will just smile.

 

Oh and my Singaporean colleague who has a speech impediment and loves football but not so much Hodgson's choices thinks it's ok so I don't know who you are trying to be offended on behalf of??

We looked really weak in both friendlies in the centre but also particularly down the left when Rose played.

Dier and Milner sitting with Alli more advanced is absolutely fine. If you want to be a bit more adventurous you could replace Milner with Wilshere.

Yeah, similar feelings, I think it's a bit late to be 'testing' things the week before too. Still, I think we *could* have a decent chance at this tournament, with a few decent performances & some luck in the knock-outs in terms of who we play.

 

I'm sure I'm just being terribly optimistic though, don't worry, I'll have it beaten out of me in the next 40-50 years!

I wouldn't say it was the worst challenge I'd ever seen but it's in the top one.

 

Nah not the worst but ridiculous for a friendly. I don't really think it was intended 100% to try & put Kane out but still, you don't go all out with tackles in the 1 or 2 final games before a tournament.
