    You see I thought Sterling was poor against Croatia, the goal aside.

    Aye, but he didnt say that. I cant be arsed second guessing what he means behind his words. I didnt say I wanted an established XI. I'll probably carry on watching the tournament though, cheers.

    I felt bad because I thought he looked completely out of touch and people harped in the media that Southgate had got it right playing him.

    He got us to our first world Cup semi since 1990, his aim at the minute is to get in to the last 16, yes last night was a **** game but he's still on track to qualify so I can't really see why anyone is moaning.
    See how he does in the rest of the competition and judge him at the end.
    I sometimes wonder why anyone would want the England job, you would think we had just been beaten and knocked out the competition

    most of the moans stemmed from his big fat gob and taking the knee and the words used to describe fans who booed, i have already said my bit earlier but managers have been sacked for less, well until this woke shyte broke out

    My moan is that England have lots af good attacking players but rarely look like scoring ...

    ... when a defender has your best attempt and you have one effort on target I'd say people are entitled to a moan.

    We've played two home games, against teams with no chance of winning the competition, and have managed three attempts on goal. Football is supposed to be entertaining and exciting, not just a dreary grind to an objective.

    What do we reckon the market value of England's forwards are? Off the top of my head I think it's not far off 500m worth in the squad.

    I've always thought for some reason we've always struggled against the weaker teams, fingers crossed they improve when we play the better teams and the games are more open. I just don't think we move the ball quick enough when teams sit back against us.
    I will have to question your argument that football is supposed be entertaining and exciting when you've been following Sunderland for decades

    Opinions like. Thought he looked pretty sharp for someone who was supposed to be out of form. I remember him wriggling past two defenders from a standing start and one or two other bits and pieces.

    now i wondered what he had done to be included, although i agree he 'looks sharp', at the same time he looks like he tries to do too much, just pass the feckin ball into the middle rather than constantly trying to get past 2 players and run along the line.

    i feel that is what cost him his starting spot with city, rather than keeping it simple he seemed to always want to take men on, while it looks good when it comes off it usually ends with him losing the ball.

    Don't disagree there. Although sometimes you need people to run at the oppo and frighten them a bit. I think Sterling is a better option for that than Grealish, who seems to be another one that the media love but seems to have no real end product.

    again i agree, nothing better than watching a lad run at defenders, keeps them on their toes imho but it needs timing, much like any other action on the pitch and doing it nearly every time just means they double up on you, if they are never sure if you are going to pass, make a run or chip a cross in they need to cover all possibles...lately all defenders need to do is block sterling as he either loses the ball or runs into them, they dont really need to tackle.

    grealish really does flatter to decieve, plenty of running but rarely actually gets anywhere bar the free kicks...but this is england and the media darlings will always get top billing ahead of form players.

    The prick wants shooting for not starting Grealish again, it’s absolutely inexcusable. I genuinely hope we don’t get further than the last 16 with this clown in charge, just to make sure he’s jobless at the end of it. What a ****ing waster and he genuinely thought that was a good result last night <laugh> give me strength. I will be rooting for the Italians for the rest of the tournament.

    Think you’ve slightly understated that!!!!

    I thought Foden, fir the entire 90 minutes, was our best attacking option.

    and the greatest ever Grealish comes on and dies………. Nothing.
    Sterling……. Nothing
    Kane…. I’m not going to be polite, was utterly ****ing atrocious. If his performance gets an England game then Wyke deserves a call up.
