Within 79minutes of football as a CM partnership ok then 😂 wait till Friday when Henderson is back in the midfield and 1 is dropped.

Foden and Mount definitely are good players, and will likely make up the focal point of the team for the next decade or so. 

 

We really need to develop a couple of players like that for Scotland.  One thing we definitely miss out on is that World Class style player

 I think their midfield is extremely average

in Comparison to what they’ve had before  

 

Foden is great but isn’t really a midfield player.

We have a young midfielder highly rated by European champions. Will Clarke have the bottle to utilise him in this tourney?

Agree in principle but Billy Gilmour will be a top class player. 
 

a proper centre back and a proper forward and we’d be decent

England have a great mix of players who have won World cups at younger levels arguably more dynamic than they've had that I can remember.

No offence but I can think of at least 4/5 tournaments when England have started with a better midfield than that.

I like Declan Rice.

Still don’t want England to win anything but the longer they go on the better the inevitable Hibsing is

That’s an absolutely beatable midfield. Admittedly it looks positive for them for the future with how young the team is but Croatia were dugmeat today.
 

They come up against a seasoned international quality midfield and they’ll get taught a lesson IMO.

Very, very true. Would like to see him get a chance against the Czechs tomorrow! 

 

A couple more of him coming through would be excellent.

I just hope our players don't overawed by the English media hype like 20 years ago. Get at them and rattle them.

Foden is class, Mount is good and Phillips is ok. Overall I'm not that concerned about us facing up against them. We have plenty of players within our squad who have experience of facing them.

I've been saying that England are now capable of getting a trophy, their talent pool is very good.

Goalkeeper is still a problem as long as he sticks by Pickford, he does not look confident at all. His distribution is awful.

No international football minded really more a club man but needs must with nothing else on I’ll watch and try and get into it watched England the day and maybe just me but they to a man gives me the impression they’re a bunch o overhyped arrogant so & so’s and hope Scotland do take them down a peg or two individual club forums as per usual grading us as no more than championship level.

Foden thinks he can do it all himself, football is all about space. He is a great talent though. That was a great win for them today I expect Croatia to get through. Those two, England and Croatia, have the most complete squads in the group.

Pickford is a keeper that suits England. Like Hearts in 05/06 they will dominate games and he'll be relied upon to make saves every now and then. He's good at that

Didn't think they looked all that great today. Certainly not worth all this hype from certain advertisers proclaiming Fodden will "Gazza" Scotland and single handled destroy us.

 

Feel we've got enough in midfield to be able handle this lot. Neither teams have great defenses but upfront we lack way behind.

It’s a shit draw for them. They’ll win the group and get one of France, Germany, Portugal. Still think another semi final would be an excellent result for them, given it’s a really young squad.

I have come to the terms like I did at the World Cup that they are a really good team. The real deal

I will maintain until my dying day that we were the better team for most of the game in 1996. England scored early through Shearer and didn’t do much after that. Scotland were knocking on the door and when we won the penalty it was fully deserved. 1-1 and Scotland with their tails up and it’s a different game. Then McAllister misses, we have a single moment of individual brilliance from Gascoigne a minute or two later, and it’s game over.

Without doubt.

Other than their gubbing of Holland, they were over hyped.

That's exactly how I remember it. We were much the better team and that missed penalty completely swung the momentum back in their direction.  We deserved so much more than to get Eliminated in the group stages by a single goal on goal difference.

I meant the first leg of the 99 playoff when scholes scored twice, but I agree with you about 1996. Frustrating game.

Mount is very, very good.

 

Foden will be the midfielder of the tournament.

Folden is top class. There are areas of his game that he could improve but he definitely has the ability to become a world class player.

They are worried about us as they've never beaten us in 5 attempts with far superior Croatian teams than that garbage today. England were poor but the better team.

Okay. 

 

So just with 6 seconds consideration 

 

Platini, Girrese, Six, Tigana

 

Happy to spend more time on it if we get a proper debate on it. 

 

If Real Madrid want to give Leeds £200 million for Kalvin Phillips that would be another discussion if we can have a Leeds thread.

I’ve maintained for a while that in years to come Mount will be looked back on as a more effective player with a good career.
