Only question is: who are more patriotic, those who kneel after the Star-Spangled Banner or those who endure the pain of a whole rags raving commentary of a Southgate's total boredom?

hard to tell.
"In the week following England's defeat in Rotterdam, the FA were shocked to discover not only that they would have to sell the family silver (the FA Cup) to make up for the financial cost of World Cup failure, but also that nobody was queuing up to take over from Taylor. For Swales, it must have been a familiar situation. Few managers with reputations to protect want to cross his threshold at Maine Road either."

Good to see Hoddle has 1 good thing to say about Walker though, even though it was a 'Moment of Magic from Kane'!


Didn't you see? Kane won the ball back and played a great cross to himself to score

BTW - Henderson is completely useless and needs to be no where near this team if they hope to get past the group stages

What does he actually do, apart from play for the Dippers? I don't get how Dier and Henderson can be on the pitch at the same time as they both players DM and they're both shit at that. It's as if they're there just to sell seats or sponsorship deals.

Amazing, Kyle Walker just 'Does well' after intercepting the pass out and then putting the perfect ball in for Kane just to get anything on it.

Thought Sterling played well as well, even though he got kicked to fuck. I'd like to talk to any of those cunts booing him though, especially after putting it on a plate for Rashford, who fucked it right up.


What would be exciting beefy in midfield is Foden and that young lad who played No10 in the youth cup final for Chelsea, have them in the middle pulling the strings, yes young, but both extremely dynamic and creative and push forward at every opportunity........The future is there.........F@@k those two boring defensive oak trees in Dyer & Henderson.....Zero inspiration and ....Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

One of them is fine. I think dier does a decent job in that role. U can knock them all you want but the qualifying record is inctedible in recent history.

I switched over and have been watching since about the 67th minute.

I really don't why Raheem bothers.

He ran the ball out of play and the crowd were booing him.
Actually they are booing everything. Maybe it's not just him.


I can only imagine the shit Sterling would've got had he fucked up the chance that he made for Rashford.

I really don't get it.
I know why it's happening, but it's absolutely brain dead. I don't understand why anyone bothers to go to an international match and boo their own player.

I mean, we had several players I didn't like.
Keane. Both of them actually, Robbie and Roy. Didn't like either.
Especially Roy. I mean he was a Scumbag.
But when he played for Ireland he was our scumbag. Robbie was a self important twat, but he was our self important twat.

Picking out any individual and booing them is not supporting. The fact that it's not condemned in the media is hardly surprising but is every bit as shameful and tells you s lot about their motives.

That's 38 unbeaten in qualification games. Pretty impressive. Shame we are completely shite and embarrassing when it comes to tournaments where it really matters.

I fear that would be too much beyond FA's rags/dippers raving grasp.
"In the week following England's defeat in Rotterdam, the FA were shocked to discover not only that they would have to sell the family silver (the FA Cup) to make up for the financial cost of World Cup failure, but also that nobody was queuing up to take over from Taylor.

OMG, this is worse than Thursday. At least they're saving Walker and Sterling for the weekend.

Seriously shite line-up and still with no playmaker in the midfield, or one trying to be. No chances from the so called PL greats in Kane, Alli and Rashford whilst Lithuania have had 2 decent changes.

Well, Kane scores from a penalty but must've nodded off for the actual foul. They usually show multiple replays so I can only assume by the lack of them that Rashford earned the dive.

When you can hear individual drunken camp followers singing "Engerland, Engerland, Engerland. Engerland, Engerland, Engerland. Engerland, Engerland, Engerland. Engerland, Engerland, Engerland." you know the meeting with the Russian hooligans can't come soon enough.

Just had to turn the sound up as I couldn't hear the crowd. Even the commentators are falling asleep.
