    Colombia vs Japan match thread

    Japan look very easy on the eye, enjoyed this game a lot. They'd certainly pose us some problems in the last 16.

    Kasper Schmeichel

    Will go down as our best goalkeeper in the modern era and we've had some solid and classy ones in Keller and Flowers. Schmeichel has done unbelievably well for us, it's his humility and character off the pitch that impresses me as much as what he's done on it. He's a winner and he's big in to team spirit and professionalism, it's rare to listen to a footballer and hang off their every word too but he oozes intelligence and passion. He's a salt of the earth, Sven's best thing he ever did for us.

    Gray to Lazio

    I think we should swap Gray, Slimani and Mendy for Anderson, Immobile and Milinkovic-Savic

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    It's not just your club though, there seems to be a general dismissiveness of Mahrez and Leicester in his price. The fact is if the player and clubs name were kept anonymous and a valuation was done on an ex PL winner, PFA POTY, Ballon D'Or nominee, top of the scoring and assists combined in the last 3 seasons, peak age then in this current market it would be £70m minimum. I accept there's potentially question marks over his temperament but he's so calm and composed that it's one of the main reasons he's magic. If he was at any fashionable club and done what he's done here in his time he'd have a queue of top clubs offering mad money, for this reason alone I hope we tell clubs to pay up or fcuk off.

    James Maddison

    It's going to be really odd to see us being a threat from free kicks once again.

    I can see Walker being either moved to RWB or being dropped for Cahill or Jones as the tournament progresses. Trippier looks superb right now and it would be a shame if Walker was moved back there, especially as Arnold-Alexander might deserve a chance there as well given his form but Walker as a centre back will see us come unstuck again and again. I love Maguire but having him and Walker out of position is very dangerous, especially as the man mopping up is John Stones who loves a horrific gaff every once in a while. The formation is definitely the way to go right now but I think we could fine tune it with different personnel.

    Jamie Vardy

    Kane may well want the golden boot and Southgate will give him every opportunity but he'll also be mindful of how important he is to him and the team and won't let him play every minute, especially in games that become less important when qualification appears or is secured. Rashford won't lead the line, nor will Welbeck. They will play as support to the number 9 or if we are trying to protect a result but again I don't see that being the case until the knockout stages and I still think Southgate would turn to Vardy as the main striker as he knows what his pace does on the counter, he's literally the perfect sub to have for chasing the game or when you're ahead and a team has to commit forward as the game draws to a close.

    Jamie Vardy

    I think we'll see him get 20-25 mins vs Panama as Kane will be given a rest in preparation for Belgium. He's going for the golden boot.

    I'm relaxed, this team will shit house all day long if it needs to. I hope to see underperformers replaced if needs be, but it's the first game let's not let past experiences cloud things. Players places under scrutiny are Sterling, Lingard and Alli. Thankfully we have Rashford, Loftus-Cheek and hopefully Vardy who could be given the opportunity to stake a claim. Southgate must make sure he's a quick and unflustered thinker as the rest of this side picks itself and can and will do fairly well.

    Kieran Trippier is a ****in beast

    I don't see us being any more dangerous with Vardy alongside as neither of them will play a different type of role needed to play in a front two.

    That'll do, needed to get the win at any costs. I think Rashford and RLC should start over Sterling and Lingard who had the most alarming number of mishits and air shots I've ever seen in a match. Kane's finish for that 2nd was a disgrace.

    James Maddison

    I hope we've let them have Barnes for a season in this deal as well.

    Yes, I'm all for having the easiest route possible and it's still not that easy anyway. But I'd fancy us on that run in, I really would.
