England


Recommended Posts

No doubting they are pedigree.

Easily swept Hungary aside.

If the finals were not in a joke of a country I'd fancy them to win the next world cup.

Really building something .

Southgate played a more attaching team tonight than the 7-2-1 formation he played in the Euro final and I think it suits England better

They just played every game of Euro2020 at Wembley and still made an arse of it.

 

Pedigree Chum!

Appreciate you’re out for bites but that’s total shite. 
 

England got beat by the first good team they played in the Euros. 
 

As they always have done in every tournament they’ve been in in my 51 years on this planet. 
 

They don’t have the players, nor the tactics to win a tournament. 

 

They came very close to winning a competition that was very open. Had their early supremacy in that final led to a second goal then it would have been very hard for their opponents. 

 

Can't see them coming close in the WC but the next euros will be interesting.

Bites?

Settled at the back albeit not a great keeper.

Balanced in midfield.Pacey with a bit bite.Sterling is a cracking player Kane a goalscorer.

And a great team spirit with a manager that has the team onside.

Why am I looking for bites?

Dont be ridiculous

Nae luck if they get a hard draw. England have been making qualifying easy for 20 years. 

 

Bulgaria drew with Italy tonight and Bosnia drew with France last night. Are they shite?

They're just not all that great, we saw at the Euros how they struggle against organised teams, Scotland and Denmark and Italy proved that.

They just don't create much when teams know how to defend.

Hungary are a decent team who can compete with the big guns on their day as they proved in the Euros.

 

They have lost one game in 14 before tonight and we’re at home in front of a 60,000 partisan crowd.

 

To go and win 4-0 there is a very impressive result and to say otherwise is ignorant and churlish.

 

However to use that result as the pretext for making England one of the favourites for the World Cup is ridiculously premature.

They won't. It will follow same process, media will pretend to be underdogs, win one game, then the bravado starts and they hype themselves into frenzy.

They then lose to first decent team they play.

Against Scotland they were off form.

Denmark were and are on a great run.

The Italian team were the team of the tournament but a little fortunate to win.

I’ve no idea why you’re looking for bites. I can’t answer your own question. 
 

To randomly start a thread picking out England as ‘really fancying them to win the next world cup if it was in a different country as they’re really building something’ is a weird statement. That’s all. 
 

As I said in my first reply, the first time they meet a decent team, they get knocked out. That’s because they’re nowhere near the level required to win the euros let alone the World Cup. 
 

Below average goalie, average defence, average midfield, slightly better forwards. 
 

Italy played with them like a kitten. 

Randomly ?

They were just on the tele won 4-0 away from home.

That's classed as weird aye.?

Have a word with yourself ffs

Speaking of looking for bites…

 

A team that reaches a final of a major tournament before losing on penalties cannot be described as ‘being nowhere near the level to win the Euros’.

Italy played some brilliant football versus Bulgaria. Drew 1-1. Be interested if you can watch replay of that game and compare.

Not sure why my reply to his assumption that I'm a weirdo because I posted about Englands game makes you suggest watching Italy v Bulgaria .

Well my dog agrees with me. How many games have Scotland won. It’s another case of Glorious Failure. Unfortunately it’s been going on for decades!

😂😂 of course you were.  You don’t believe what you typed as it is patently total nonsense.  No team can lose a final on penalties and then be described as being nowhere near as it’s factually totally wrong and you know it.

 

you talked crap, got called for it and now are giving it the tragic patter.

I think overall you need more than England have to win tournaments. 

 

It is true they got close last 2 times. Harry Kane missed a sitter v Croatia at semi final at World Cup but unlikely they could have beaten that France team in final. 

 

France, Belgium, Spain definitely would have beaten them at Euros. 2 good draws. 

 

But...it is just as hard for likes of France, Brazil, Argentina, Belgium, Spain, Italy. I think they all need to do more to be true contenders at Qatar. Southgate is trying something similar to Alf Ramsay in a solid game plan to overcome better teams. To get to the next level they need to take chances and avoid losing control. Very difficult against better players which was the problem v Italy. Playing qualifiers in easy group is zero help.

If England get a tough draw next time then out early playing like they did in Euros. Or World Cup.

I'm Scottish .

I watched England.

I gave an opinion on a football team.

And you let your petty little tartan knickers twist my original post .

A total banger is what you are .

I don't really care too much about international football, and I didn't watch tonight's game, but I'll put my twopenn'orth in.

 

My feeling is that, while the current England side is probably the best organised and has the best overall players for many a year, we are missing two very important players.  Specifically a goalkeeper of the calibre of a Shilton or a Clemence, and a magician to do something special like a Gascoigne.

 

With the addition of players such as those I think we could do something really special, but the current great organisation is not quite enough. England will always eventually come unstuck against another well-organised team with a bit of individual star quality.

Still basking in that Italy win myself. I see they only drew tonight despite 80% possession. 

 

They played well. Same players, style and approach. Just Bulgaria defended with their lives and scored good breakaway equaliser.

I tend to agree as there is no evidence to the contrary.  
 

I was merely pointing out that you cannot legitimately and credibly say that a team that just lost a final on penalties is ‘nowhere near’.  That is the only point I was making I don’t want to get caught up in some big debate over England’s prospects for a World Cup they haven’t even qualified for.
