  1. Have you watched football over the last year? The effect of playing every 4 days was very clear to see. Having an unrotated starting XI for every single of those matches would be madness. England should get into the knockout stages no problem, with a rational approach to rotation we will still have fresh legs throughout the squad. Big difference to England squads of the past that have relied on a largely unrotated set of players. Anyway, 100% Italy will not maintain that pressure and aggression throughout the tournament. By all means quote me on this in a few weeks.
  2. Bizarrely, quite happy with the team selected today. Italy threw everything they had at Turkey the other day, which is entirely unsustainable over the course of a tournament. Instead of seeing the best XI, we saw 9 decent players plus Tripper and Mings. Plenty of room for England to grow into the tournament. #SouthgatesAtTheWheel?
  3. One of those moments that makes the tics of a clock sound so much louder. Really hope he is okay.
  4. They can’t sustain this energy for an entire tournament. Good to see Soyuncu’s intent on staying at Leicester
  5. Fake news. Getfootballnewsfrance has popped up in a few threads recently. They churn out articles to get higher on search engines and get that sweet sweet ad revenue. They abide by the Family Guy storyline manatees.
  6. Scored more goals than Trincao last season in a tougher league
  7. I think you must have been either head in the clouds, away on holiday or reporting on a different team because if you think that’s a good signing, that player, I think your suggestion is absolutely unbelievable. The fact that you do not understand where I'm coming from. If you seriously think that signing is a good idea, then I think you are an ostrich. Well your head must be in the sand. Is your head in the sand? Are you flexible enough to get your head in the sand? My suspicion would be no. I can, you can't. You can't. Listen you've been here often enough. For you to
  8. Hope he stops ball watching in the centre third. Despite how frustrating he can be, he is a proper talent. Really want to see him kick on and contribute across a whole season.
  9. I love how bizarre that whole broken players thing was. He’s like an Irish Fagin. Although I’m sure some Turks would argue he broke Under!
  10. I’m just repeating what every other gobshite is saying about Leicester wanting a left-footed right winger
  11. Oh for sure, but he arrives with some caveats. 1) First season in the Premier League under his belt. 2) Had to endure over half a season under the most clueless manager in Premier League history. 3) 1 G/A every 190 minutes 4) Left-footed right winger who has some positional flexibility Definitely a better alternative to Perez and Trincao et al. Anyway, forget all my very articulate points in a numbered list, here’s a YouTube dubstep compilation. https://youtu.be/QTqMsjO_wvc
  12. Slightly excited at the completely baseless prospect of Ziyech
