Southgate.. England team V Denmark today

Post by shots1965 » Wed Oct 14, 2020 6:59 pm

Doesn’t have a clue, we have all this young talent available

Maguire, donkey, too slow, never an England player

Rice, I have no clue what he brings to the team

Pickford, lots of mistakes in him



Can’t believe he’s not giving Grealish a game

Playing 5 3 2 At home

Never been a fan of Southgate..I don’t think he’s the man for the job

Just my opinion

I’ve been a supporter of Southgate and was so happy when the nation finally got behind him during the World Cup. However, his last few line-ups have left a lot to be desired. What happened to picking on form, not reputation?

I also think it’s disgusting these national matches are not on terrestrial TV (and the highlights aren’t on until 11.40pm tonight!).

Who would you have in Southgate’s place?

I really detest the fact we’re playing 2 holding midfielders against Denmark.

Why are we wearing a blue kit when a) we’re at home and b) there’s no blue in our flag.

Expert predictions. Although it shouldn't have been a penalty but what were both McGuire and Pickford doing!!!

Agree that Southgate is losing his way. Pickford hasn’t had a decent game in 2+ years. Maguire is a liability, as are Walker, Mings and Gomez so they’re not the answer at the back. Rice isn’t delivering against his early promise and I think the jury’s out on Sancho.

Right now I’d pick the following
Pope
Trent Coady Dier Chilwell
Mount Henderson Phillips Grealish
Calvert-Lewin Ings

I’ll go with that side

Better than inept,clueless,zero personality,Southgate
HTF, did he ever get the job In the first place

We were outplayed today from start to finish

Rashford, waste of space
Kane, too slow

Grealish run the show the other day against Wales
Couldn’t even give him 30 minutes

Disgraceful, the game was crying out for him

My second team being Villa I feel sorry for Grealish, MOTM against Wales then doesn't even get on for 15 mins tonight.
Playing with two defensive midfielders for the whole 90mins, you'll losing the game take one off and put Grealish on, try and get back in the game.
Sadly no plan B and Southgate is losing it.

Grealish won't be in the next squad he'll bring back Foden and Sterling

Southgate is a dour, sterile yes man. He tows the company line and doesn't upset the apple cart. The perfect man in the eyes of the F.A. Out dated and lacks personality.
He says he will select players on form, he says he will select players without controversy, he says he will only pick players playing in the PL.

Phillips was in the England XI before he'd kicked a ball in the Premier League, DCL, Grealish and Ings are three of the most in form players yet struggle to get consistent minutes ahead of out of form players.

Maguire was given the captains arm band and still selected for the squad in August despite being charged, Southgate then had to do a U-turn.
Kyle Walker broke lock down rules and ended up having 2 hookers round, he still manages a place in the starting XI despite poor form on and off the field.

Grealish helped carry Villa over the line last season, has been one of the best players so far this season and proved himself against Wales, yet still doesn't get a sniff.

Negative approach, two holding midfielders, the list could go on....

I might get off the fence later and say what I really think :wink:

I agree with nearly all the posts on this thread - Southgate has blown all the goodwill he built up during the last World Cup.

WTF do the likes of Henderson and Pope have to do to get a game or, more specifically, how badly does Pickford have to play before Southgate drops him? It's no surprise Ancelloti is on the hunt for a new keeper at Everton. Maguire is a League One player in all but market value.

I don't think any England manager has had such a depth of talent at his disposal and yet, we seem to be going backwards. Southgate talks the talk but with him at the helm, I fear we're no closer to winning a Euro or World Cup.

Personally, I'd give Sean Dyche a crack at the job - a hugely underrated manager, and just the man to whip this crop of lads into a winning team.
