What good is Grealish hes on hi backside for almost everytime he has the ball and mostly going backwards to our defensive players the only time he could be dangerous is if hes in the penalty box then go down
Also his goal was on a plate if i had been the striker who cut it back for him i would have gone for goal myself
His celebration after his goal, please dont get me started on that, is he a simpleton or what?

That’s a poor post liver, I expected better from you to be honest

Did you? Really?  :o

On the game, I felt we looked handy. Opposition were what they were, but we never looked like they’d stifle us which was always the worry. We have so much attacking talent it’s frightening, just need to make sure we continue to use it as we did in that game. Praying he does not revert back to 5 at the back at any stage, particularly when Walker is fit, defence is our weakest suit so play on the front foot

Really Fritz, I do

The post was just moaning about Grealish, how easy his goal was, and his ‘celebration’ for a child with cerebral palsy.

It’s easy to point out how easy he goes down, and that is true, but we once had a player called Periera who hit the deck pretty quickly too

I meant were you really shocked at a post like that coming from Liverbaggie? His opinions expressed in the past suggested to me that is exactly the sort of post I would expect from him.

I had seen the video before the tournament on Twitter where he had met with the lad, Finley, who requested he did that celebration and fully support him doing it. Strangely enough, ever since he left the Villa, I have truly warmed to our Jack  ;D

No idea why Liver would be criticising him being chopped down by Iranian players who were scared of him running at them directly and committing men which, while we have the likes of Maguire on the pitch, gives us a great advantage at the many set pieces he wins.

Might just be me but much as I rate Rice I thought there were times he was very casual in possession. While both had good moments and we scored six (which is obviously great) Stones and McGuire will need to up their game moving forward.

We were vulnerable to balls over the top when Iran actually showed ambition. Given our general dominance three goals wouldn't have flattered them. Good start yet we need to be sharper and more focused against tougher opponents.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

I thought Rice was the weakest link yesterday. His passing wasn’t too good and several times his first touch was awful ball just bouncing off him .

I am sort of warming to him too, looks like he has grown up since he left Witton wanderers.

Grealish scares a lot of players, whilst we were anti a little while ago I would like to think the we can recognise his talent

Breaking up play !! Iran barely had the ball. Obviously adhering to the 11th commandment . Thou shalt not criticise a player from the previous World Cup winners that are West Ham !

Poor performance so far. USA took over mod way through the half and we only regained some semblance of shape in the final 5 mins.

The defensive press has been very poor, they look like they ha e so much time to pick passes and shots around the box.

It's like watching the Albion under Bruce, superior players but no coaching or tactical aptitude going into them

It pretty much does though. He’s a cowardly manager.

He will have to rely on a very lucky draw again to get to the latter stages. Such a poor manager

It’s not guaranteed no, but what odds wales beat us by 6?

It’s virtually guaranteed if we don’t lose, which is exactly why Southgate’s first thought was Henderson.  If we can stutter through until a big nation beats us, Southgate will have his excuses.

I think Kanes carrying an injury. He’s got previous for playing unfit when it may be in the teams interest to admit it (Spurs champions league final). Wouldn’t be surprised if it comes out after the tournament.

For me that game was crying out for Foden and Grealish. It wasn’t happening for Saka and Sterling.

There is trepidation going into the Wales game now and they’ll be up for it. Could end up 2nd which makes life harder.

Southgate too reliant on players like Henderson, Sterling, Mount and even Rashford, players who have been good for him but are no longer performing and are only there through loyalty.

Phil Foden plays regularly for arguably the best side in world football but can't get minutes for Southgate. Surely he should be ahead of a few of those players by now.

Also a lack of luck with injuries and players development stalling. It's hurt our depth at this tournament. I was hoping players like Delap, Sancho, Skipp, Elliott, Smith Rowe and the disgraced Greenwood would now have been in and around the squad but instead we are left with a thinner set of options.

We're near enough qualified now, but if we play likebthat vs Wales then a last 16 exit to the Netherlands or Equador beckons.
