Aye. That's why Italy aren't winning it and why (sadly) England have a chance.

If England win this tournament I'll buy a collection of hats and eat every single one of them.

 

France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, and Portugal are all better than England. Holland would probably beat them. Spain would beat them on penalties after spending 120 minutes fucking around with the ball and seeing Morata spoon their two decent chances over the bar.

 

England have a shit keeper, shit centre backs, and bang average inexperienced central midfielders. They have a collection of decent attacking midfielders/wide forwards and Kane. And I'm not actually sure if Kane touched the ball against Croatia. 

 

And of course, they're managed by Gareth Southgate. 

 

They're in a group with a Croatia team that needs pensioning off, and Scotland and Czech Republic who are both, frankly, rubbish. The first decent team England face will see them packing their bags.

The Dutch play beautiful passing football but are going nowhere meaningful with Weghorst and Depay up front.

 

Malen can't be up to much if he can't get picked ahead of those too cast iron jabronis. That, or De Boer is clueless.

Frank de Boer isn't a great coach, but all the coaches in this tournament in general seem to be looking to pace their squad for a long run in the tournament. Whether the team is good enough to do so is another matter. They want to ensure they have a few difference makers on the bench ready to unleash on tiring defences. Also, coaches in general tend to want their initial decisions to be vindicated with a second attempt, either to prove that whatever worked the first time will work again, or that it didn't work first time is down to other factors.

Austria are just like West Brom who have borrowed a Bayern Munich player for one day.

 

I remember the absolute shite they served up at World Cup 1998. 5 out-and-out defenders, 3 defensive midfielders, Andreas Herzog to make anything happen, and 80 year old Toni Polster up front. I hate it when teams turn up at major tournaments and never attempt to do anything productive.

I wasn’t happy we let Gini’s contract run out - the more I watch the Dutch the more unhappy I’m becoming.

Gutted. 
And we’ve got that useless prick Keita who’s probably on more money going to be most likely injured again next season.

The 2010 World Cup was awful for shit teams doing fuck all. Angola played all 3 games with 10 men behind the ball.  Algeria did the same against England and everyone else in their group. 

 

Loads of countries just go to tournaments with the intention of being well organised and boring the shit out of everyone, including their own fans who have probably waited decades for their country to qualify.

If you watched just the Netherlands games in the past 5 years, you'd think Gini was Steven Gerrard.

While I agree with the UK’s position, if only they’d had been as quick closing the boarders to India.

Bit of a shame when you consider Trent could've been up against his great mate Robbo tonight. 

 

That would be banter I'd actually want to hear!

    • Great post, and very much my position. No real issue with FSG owning us, just wish they would let up a bit on the whole self sustaining thing and pitch a bit of their own obvious wealth into the transfer pot.
    • Trent Alexander-Arnold has expressed his delight in signing a new four-year deal.   The Liverpool right back put pen to paper on the new deal yesterday which will keep the boyhood Red at the club until 2025.   Speaking to the Official site, Trent spoke of his delight.   “I'm honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be given an extension. So, it was a no-brainer for me. The state the club is in and where I'm at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I'm here longer is always a good thing. I'm made up.    As someone who joined the Liverpool academy at the age of six, Alexander-Arnold said that the club has meant so much to him.   “I mean, it's the only club I've ever really known. So to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family. It's a proud moment for me – it always is – signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling."   At just 22, the footballing resume of Alexander-Arnold is glittering on a individual and team level and one that most players would be delighted with for the entirity of their career.   Reflecting on what he has achieved to this point, the League and European Champion takes nothing for granted.   “I've achieved so many dreams and goals that I never actually thought I would. I live the dream every day really.   "Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world class every day is a privilege for me and I'm very fortunate to be in the position I am.”   Top clubs are meticulous in the planning for the next phase, and careful to not being caught out when the end of the cycle comes.   Speculation has begun over who may succeed Jordan Henderson as the next captain and despite being so young himself, Alexander-Arnold says that he is trying to impart some of his knowledge that he has learnt from his senior teammates onto the next generation.   “I've been around some amazing leaders. Hendo Millie and Virg were definitely up there as the three best that I've been in and around. I'm privileged to be able to pick up things and learn things from them. They're all different leaders in their own way – some lead by their actions and some by their words. But at the end of the day, leadership is leadership.   “I think I've been in and around the lads enough time now to not see myself as a young player. Someone who's a mature lad, capable of fulfilling those roles and being a captain without necessarily having the armband on your arm is something that I've always wanted to try to be.    “So just being a role model for the younger players, trying to keep them on the right path and being there for encouragement when they need that. Just mentoring, I'd say – kind of what like Hendo and Millie were doing to me when I was a bit younger. Then just kind of nurturing them into young men that are capable of achieving anything really.”     Reflecting on a difficult past season, Alexander-Arnold said that despite no silverware, securing Champions League football was seen as a worthy achievement.   However winning honours is their sole focus for the 2021/22 season.   “The previous seasons we were there with silverware and we were on top of the world – world champions, Premier League champions, we had everything under the belt.   "Then to be kind of brought back down to earth last season with a lot of road bumps in the way, speed bumps on the journey, we overcame them. It kind of felt like a little bit of an achievement to secure top four in the way that it was looking throughout the season at certain points.   “We have our sights set on trophies, that's our aim. It's no longer top four or doing well, Europe and things like that, getting to quarters and semis.   "We want to be in a title run coming into May, we want to be in the Champions League final, we want to be in the domestic cup finals. We want to go as far as we can. I think this season we'll be fighting on all fronts to win as many trophies as we can."

    • Varane hasn’t quite lived up to his initial promise but he’s still a better defender than the alternatives, so he’ll improve them for sure. Most would take him over Gomez. I probably wouldn’t swap them right this minute but for a ‘fantasy’ team, Varane would get the nod alongside Virge.
