    Incredibly poor England performance. Too many players on the pitch were afraid to do anything with the ball because they didn't want to be the one who made the mistake. Slow sideways passing and any foray forward was completely toothless, reminded me of the dross when watching United under Van Gaal.

    Stones probably scores his header if he's being challenged, instead he probably realises he's up there on his own and doesn't work for the header. When England were crying out for some energy and invention, Southgate brings on Grealish who gets isolated out on the left and barely gets the ball. Why couldn't he play in the middle and draw players onto him? I understood taking Kane off as he was poor, but Rashford was never going to do much better because we were never going to get the ball forward for him to run on to.

    Play like that against the Czechs on Tuesday and they'll beat us.

    Read the lyrics to the flower of Scotland, and if you can percieve what they mean and if you know about History, you will start along the path to understanding what its about.

    Massive and predictable overreaction. Yes we weren’t great, but Scotland were decent and competitive and put plenty of men behind the ball. If we win this tournament it’ll be by beating teams in different ways to winning tonight.

    Basically confirmed through anyway. We all love Vindaloo

    Someone scoffed earlier on in this thread when I said tactics dont apply in this game. Now the 90 minutes is over, who was correct?

    :laugh::laugh:

    How does that equate to playing a team where some players play in a 'pub league'?

    Heart only gets you so far.

    Bollocks. A bunch of overpaid w*nkers sh*t themselves when playing a mostly championship side and somehow it is my fault? Suppose Mandy McCann going missing is somehow connected to me as well. Do one! Fuming after that result!

    Southgate looks flustered by Scotlands performance, which is unusual for him. He wasnt expecting it.

    Just cannot play Rice and Phillips together in a game where we have the emphasis to attack. Both are too slow and predictable

    It got them very far in this game. They likely wont be so bothered in the next game.
