England currently 2-0 down to Portugal with minutes left in the U22s. Boothroyd has to go now. We have looked awful.

I understand it isn't his fault entirely for the lack of players in certain positions, but he hasn't helped at all. This side look like the English side of McLaren or Hodgson.

mind numbing boring game in the end Referee seemed stop play at every slight foul he could which didn't help to quote my stepmum when Harry Kane got booked which I will get to "What a load of ****." How was that a Booking to Harry Kane he went for the ball got it was shoulder barged by there defender into the other one which resulted in a three way clash.

Maybe FIFA is just trying to balance out with all the soft decisions he gets in England..

Once again when coming up against a half decent international side we look average. 2 goals from set pieces required to get the win.

Ultimately, the side is injury ravaged plus has a number of key options out of form, is in the middle of a tough schedule and has the 3 wins from 3 that are required. It's just hard to feel upbeat watching it.

International football can be dull and even the best sides struggle (all of the top sides have suffered some poor results post CoVID from what I have seen). That said, they know they have a history of turning it on when it matters while we have always looked like flat track bullies.

On paper, we have some really good defensive options (atleast based on the club sides they play for) and yet Stones got caught twice in 10 minutes there which will reinforce Southgate's belief that we need to shield the defence with 2 defensive mids. The problem though is that neither Rice nor Phillips (or Henderson really for that matter) are particularly good deep lying play makers. They are all tidy and in the right side could do a job but their lack of creativity means those ahead of them have to shoulder more of the burden.

Neither Foden nor Mount really seem able to do that from what I've seen. Mount played well tonight and will start the Euros 100%, but I can't shake the feeling Grealish would offer more. Foden is also a great player but like many English produced playmakers of recent years, I feel he is better at finishing a move than starting one.

Southgate's hesitancy to use a Grealish or a Maddison means we will likely start the Euros with a variation of Mount/Foden/Sterling/Rashford/Kane but I'm not convinced with what sits behind them that there is enough to unlock the best teams at the end of a long season.

A team lacking the X factor, typical workmanlike England team.
I get frustrated with Kane, he isn’t selfish enough, he needs to stay up top

England Women lost their second game in a week and their 9th in 14 games against Canada this evening. Not holding out much hope for the Olympics. Roll on Wiegman taking over.

I'm bored so just wondering...who would play for England if the top 6 players got banned this summer?

GK: Pickford

AMF: Grealish
AMF: Sancho

Others: Phillips (Leeds), Ward-Prowse, Lingard (if he moved to West Ham), Antonio, Barnes, Tarkowski?

Sadly, Vardy has retired from international football. Looks bleak, maybe Craig Dawson would be in the team too.

Good shout, Calvert-Lewin of course. My main concern would be the defense which is very poor in comparison to the rest of the team.

Goalie: Pickford with Pope on the Bench SJ as backup
Defence
Left Back: Matty Cash maybe, James Justin,
Centre Backs: Tarkowski, Mee, Dawson, Holgate, Mings, Ben Godfrey
Right Backs: Justin, Jamal Lewis
CDM's: Phillips, Ward Prowse, 
CAM's Sancho, Bellingham, Lingard if he joins WHU which I now hope he does, Madison, Barnes
Forwards, Kane if he leaves Tottenham in the Summer, Ings, Calvert Lewin, Maybe we could get Vardy out of retirement he said if we need him he would be there

Pretty sure he'd be joining either another top 6 side or one of the european elite if/when he leaves Spurs.

Cash is normally a right back.

Cresswell would be the left back.

Pickford

Justin (though he's injured, so Cash)
Keane
Konsa
Cresswell

Rice
Ward-Prowse
Phillips

Sancho
Grealish
Barnes

Calvert-Lewin

There's definitely a better defence than I can remember off the top of my head, but that is as good a place to start as any.

no one fancy Bamford up front then? Same goals as DCL and 1 more assist (more games though)

I can't believe I took a wrong turn and ended up in an alternate universe where Jack Squealfish could conceivably end up as England's Captain. Please.... just make it stop...... I can't cope with this anymore.
