    USA the better team to be honest. Adams the best player on the park. England are ****ing boring. How does Foden not start in this team? Pathetic really

    Is there a possession stat for fannying around passing the ball between the defenders and the goalkeeper

    You should have gone outside to watch the grass grow.

    I quickly painted the back door just so I could sit and watch it dry.

    Only plus was that was Maguires best game since 2018 World Cup. Amount of clearing headers was unreal and played the best long passes of anyone. Everyone else was turd. It's so sad that we have a manager who doesn't have a clue, to have Foden, Maddison and Arnold in your armoury and not use any of them when your side is playing like this sums him up unfortunately. Dopey ****wit ffs

    For much of the game there was so little movement from our players in front of the ball carrier. When we did move 10 minutes into the game Kane was almost in, had his shot blocked. Needed to do a lot more of that. As the 2nd half went on it looked like both team's priority was a point.

    Just back home from the England USA game

    Truly dire

    It was as if all the creativity and positives from the Iran game had been sucked out of them

    Booed off at the end and then 1 hour slog back to find the car

    Wales will probably thrash us

    Couldn’t you walk to the stadium in less than an hour? I think my understanding of Qatari geography might be shaky.

    Was at a friends birthday party in a cricket club. The footy was competing with an Abba tribute act and pseudo Abba won hands down.

    Sadly no

    They staged the game in Al Khor, about 30kms North of Doha where there are no metro or rail links forcing everyone to drive and then timing it to start at 10pm local time - on a Friday - which is the weekend here so the whole country on the road network

    Ergo 68,000 people looking randomly for their car, uber or bus in the desert after midnight

    The only positive was the stadium which despite having been involved in the early stages of construction I have not seen finished

    Totally bonkers, a replica Bedouin tent and inside a ceiling looking like arabic rugs with the actual seating area shrunken inside - it is unbelievably good

    God alone knows what they will use it for after the World Cup, I doubt there's 68,000 in the whole North of Qatar

    Total madness

    In a couple of millennia future archaeologists will unearth it and assume that north Qatar was once a fertile and heavily populated region….

    Once again Southgate's shortcomings as a coach clear for all to see, no inspiration, no Plan B, changes too late and ineffective. Our most talented squad in years let down by a belt & braces Muppet...
