Now that the dust has settled, are we safe to assume the 23 man and starting 11 are close to being picked?
Pick the 23 man squad and 11 lads.
SHOULD BE STARTING
MAYBE START, DEFINITELY IN SQUAD
POTENTIALLY IN SQUAD
SHOULD NOT BE IN SQUAD
DEPENDING ON FITNESS
I'm being rational and realistic.
Drinkwater should be starting, especially after that fantastic defensive performance today, played like a rock. Would've performed much better had Cahill been on instead of Stones though.
>Milner ahead of Drinkwater and Shelvey
tfw when it's LITERALLY coming home, lads
I'd love to see a France-England
>Player gets a red card for two literal non-yellow card fouls
>Red card kills the game and momentum which was in Leicester's favour
>Crowd forcing refs hand with decisions
>Equalise, justly, deserved to be honest.
>Stupid fuck Pol foul for no fucking reason
>score from Welbeck's afro hyping him up even more so Woy the deluded cunt takes this overrated black bastard to France to fuck us over with his post-Heskey ability
>Single headedly taking 6, (SIX) points off the eventual potential champions allowing your biggest fucking rivals and better team to actually win the Premier League.
Yeah, good bang right there, celebrating against a 10 man Leicester like Arsenal won the rights to UAE.
Plus Giroud fouled Huth pulling his shirt and pulling him back, Huth who would have challenged that.
But it's okay for Simpson to get booked and red carded for a non-goalscoring or chance opportunity for holding a players shirt.
About the team, Milner is done IMO and doesn't offer anything. Stones needs to move from Martinez and learn how to defend and he will be GOAT. Rose is also a definite starter, impressed me a lot and Hodgson doesn't have many LBs on the list anyway.
Varane is way better than Smalling
Griezmann is our most important player.
Alli should start.
Evra Sagna should die in fire, put Kurzawa and Corchia or Rose and Clyne.
Lloris is overrated
Gignac is better than Giroud.
Payet is better than Penaldo
How long until his arsehole looks like a wizards sleeve?
This wins us the Euros.
I know it's early lads, but fuck it, we did it. It's coming home!
They started from the front
tfw I shitposted so many times about him
about Kanté too.
Vardy plays on the right.
Welbeck deserves to start over Rooney on the left.
Drinkwater is worse than Henderson, Henderson is also a better fit as he's more box-to-box.
Rest is cool.
>Rooney and Vardy on wings
Vardy needs to be down the centre, so i'd have him on the Bench until we need to to go 442.
I'd have any of Lallana/Barkley/Rooney/Wellbeck/ on the wings
>Vardy plays on the right.
>Welbeck deserves to start over Rooney on the left.
>Drinkwater is worse than Henderson
>Henderson is also a better fit as he's more box-to-box.
How is it possible I disagree completely with all of this.
P.S Vardy is an out an out striker, plays better on the shoulder of CBs but if he's playing from wide positions, his best work tends to come from the left cutting inside, goals like the one vs Newcastle could be what we expect from Vardy on the left.
He's not good enough to challenge Kane down the middle.
4-4-2 will get ripped apart in an International tournament, our midfield would be destroyed. That's why we need the 5 in there.
vardy actually fouled Monreal saying anything else is retarded.
Jermaine Jenas' squad is surprisingly agreeable desu.
Only major blips for me are >Ox and >Gibbs, but they'll likely just be subs anyway.
Oh that's just an example of Vardy picking up the ball from the wide left.
Couldn't find the streamable of this one vs West Brom, sorry for bad quality.
Arsenal home, scored two from left positions.
But really he can score from just about anywhere on the pitch.
Can easily take another by dropping one of the two players I said.
Not sure who though. Old man Jags? Supreme gentleman Jones? I don't even trust Stones, I'd be extremely worried to see any of these other players starting CB.
They'll probably go for Jagielka considering the squad for the friendlies. Not great choices to pick from.
I'd have Stones as the 4th choice right now, he's too young and error-prone.
I'd be tempted to take just 4 strikers and add in an extra midfielder. (Personally I'd drop Rooney but know it won't be an option)
This is true, Kane is just the complete ideal striker for England and is looking the part every time he plays now. That Kane / Alli partnership will be the key to England's future sucsesses.
As much as Vardy should be played down the middle, 4-4-2 isn't going to work with these players, and Kane is too good not to be the striker.
Vardy has the technical ability to play on the wing, and the mental attributes England need on the pitch. I would completely rather have Vardy on the pitch but out of position, than him not be on the pitch at all.
You can see his frustration with the Barkley's and Lallana's in this England team because they don't look to distribute the ball quick enough, At least Vardy when upfront has the knowledge that Clyne/Waler/Rose will offer some width for him.
He's a shit pundit right now though, which is what makes it so weird to see a reasonable squad.
Agree on Stones but I still never want to see Jagielka in the starting XI. He got destroyed in the small amount of time he was playing against Netherlands.
Also I can't see any forwards being dropped. Kane & Vardy should be starters, Rooney will definitely be on the plane, Sturridge is pacy and has goalscoring potential and Woy loves Welbeck's versatility allowing him to play 4-3-3. Only chance for another midfielder is if Sturridge's bones shatter again.
Outside of Delph/Chamberlain and only 3 CBs it's not bad at all.
The fact he picked Rooney above Kane rings alarm bells though. Can't wait for the Jenas column calling for a Rooney start in the lead-up to the Euros.
Fairly average. Didn't look good at the base of a 4. (The whole midfield was overrun though).
Would've liked to see him alongside Dier or Henderson in the next friendly to see if he can manage in a midfield 5, which is what England should be playing.
He was angry throughout with the players around him, and himself in the first half for sure.
First, he's not a holding midfielder. He can do the job and he did it vs Holland, but that isn't his game. He's a box to box through and through, playing his best football picking the ball up, looking for the runs out wide, looking for one striker to come deep, and the other to make a diagonal run, looking for the other midfielders to offer him something, a give and go, anything, space to run in to.
Second, he covered the defence too well. It was his job, but he made the CBs look weak. Drinkwater doesn't even do that for Leicester because Huth and Morgan are two commanding CBs, when they have the ball in defence the first player they look to feed the ball to is Drinkwater, because he can do stuff with the ball. Stones and Smalling had this overbearing control of the ball for no apparant reason other than the fact they are allowed to play a possession based game nullifying Drinkwater's threat. Especially Stones, you could see Drinkwater shouting at Stones to pass the ball.
Overall Drinkwater played okay, MOTM i'm not so sure, but because the England midfield is visibly weak, and the defence, it wasn't hard for Drinkwater in an underwhelming performace look the real deal.
He struggled to control the tempo of the game, Leicester pass the ball fast, break quick and everyone is involved in the movements. Looking forward at a static Milner, a marked Lallana, and a Barkley who nobody wants to pass to because he gives them back a shit ball, it must have been a terrifying realisation of how talented and deserving Leicester City are.
