Like the look of this Hudson-Odoi very comfortable on the ball and still a novice.

Don't think they've been that bad, CHO poor for the goal but you have to accept that with those 3 attacking players.

No tactics were ok for the calibre of opponent, but we can't be so open when playing the top sides
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

Game on Sky against Holland tomorrow

Should be a good game.

Holland seem to have improved over the last year or two.

I imagine the champions league final players wont be included from the start, guessing the team will be something like

Pickford

Walker
Stones
Maguire
Chilwell

Rice
Delph/Dier
Barkley

Sterling
Rashford
Sancho

Unless I pop down the pub to watch the game 'live' early on I don't think I'll bother with the ITV highlights to be honest. Much as I'd like to watch England I really can't be bothered with waiting so late into the evening (all be it this post is being made at sparrows fart in the morning). Cheers to the FA for selling our international TV rights to the highest bidder. As if the pink elephant and extortionate pricing categories at the 'home of football' weren't enough to fleece supporters with on an ongoing basis, they sell off a national asset without a thought for their 'stakeholders'. I'll catch the high/low lights at a time that's convenient for me if at all. Cheers for the further disconnect FA, you wunch of utter bankers.
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.

Same old, sadly. Far too many moronic louts on our books.

I suspect that it’s not England Supporters Club members causing the problems, but lads who have gone over on spec for a few bevvies and a fight

At least we know where Darren and Graeme have been for the last few weeks, obviously coaching the England defence

That's what I thought - have Darren and Jones been coaching our defenders!!

Like Albion, England struggled to hold the ball in the midfield which meant the defenders had the ball too much and therefore had too many chances to make mistakes.

We (England) won't win anything until we address this midfield 'hole' .........with players who can hold onto the ball when we're a bit knackered.

Everyone's at it though, Holland's goal came from a defensive cock up. It's like it's suddenly the only way to play the game. Bonkers.The amount of times the ball was played to Pickford while he was stood on his goal line was ridiculous.
Defenders that can't play football and midfielders who don't show for the ball = disaster.

We are and always have been the most overated team in the world. One trophy and one final in 130 years, even Greece can equal that.
We aren't too clever at our other national sport either.
Best stick to darts eh? Mind you the Dutch are catching us up in that.

Too right. Everyone is trying to copy the supposed genius that is Guardiola. Guardiola though has been head coach of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. All with ridiculous resources.

The penny will drop at some point with a good few head coaches that there are other and better ways for their teams to play.

Totally agree, when are coaches going to acknowledge the well tried and tested method of playing a system that suits the capabilities of their squad and developing them from that base

No surprise with Aidy Hoofthroyd tasked with nuturing them. What must Foden make of the likes of him after working under Pep?

Foden himself needs to go and get more regular football for a season, maybe abroad with Ajax, Monchengladbach or a European team of that ilk.
