Topic: The mighty Lions v some lot in green

Jesus, that was shit tonight. Went, but thank Christ i was in a box with a constant supply of alcohol to numb the pain (even decanted it into take away coffee cups so we could stand in our seats watching the game and continue to drink)  Most fun was had watching the paper aeroplanes.

Re: The mighty Lions v some lot in green

As poor a game as i've ever seen at that level from england and they've given plenty to chose from. Players who were either unsure, incapable or unwilling to do any thing, coupled with an almost pathological reluctance to knock it long. An England team with all adventure and creativity sucked out. The modern obsession with 4-2-3-1 possession football boils my piss. Games are won by scoring goals, not on possession %'s. As soon as i see a team lining up with a double pivot i want to weep, and when i see jordan henderson is one of them, i want to saw my own testicles off.

Except the keeper & ilicic, slovenia are shit. Shit from back to front, and they've dealt with 99.9% of what england threw at them tonight, and deserved something from the match. If ilicic would've dived in the 1st half and the forward been a yard quicker in the 2nd, they would've had two penalities. Their lump of a cb is 35 yrs of age and has been old & slow since hes was young. If ever a game cried out for a positve mobile 4-4-2, this was it.

Get rid of southgate by moving him to the lionesses and get in zdenek zeman from pescara just for the world cup. He's 70 yrs old and plays football the proper way; attacking intent, no backward passes and sets out to outscore the opposition. England wouldn't win the world cup, but it'd be proper balls out attacking football. Like a mayfly, short lived & beautiful.

His team is on the left at kick off against inter at the san siro. No fucking double pivots for zdenek.

Re: The mighty Lions v some lot in green

I watched the Great family Cook Off or whatever it's called. 

I'd watched the first few minutes of the England game and the wife came in and said "we don't have to watch this shit do we"?

I considered her question and duly turned over,  safe in the fact that whatever shite I watched it wouldn't make me feel as bad as watching England piss-ball it about

If the answer is Southgate then the question must have been "Which big nosed c*nt missed a penalty and then ridiculed himself in a pizza advert afterwards"?

That bloke Misura mentioned - get him in,  he can't do much worse

BTW,  good old Gareth gets £250k bonus for qualifying for the World Cup.............fuck me sideways

Anyone who hasn't cleaned up on betting against England once we're passed the group stages hasn't really been paying attention to history.

Re: The mighty Lions v some lot in green

Tournament after tournament this dull possession style has got us nowhere. Just attack, get at them. If we're going to go out at the first stage let it at least be a 5-2 win, a 3-3 draw and getting tonked 6-3.

Great post that. Just read it to someone at work and he reckons you're spot on!

Lazy filing. Kind of chat from a whopper who calls Talk Sport and say's "Great show, again, fellas".

Glad you hate him. In your metered, confirmation-biased Championship world.

I see what he does for my team and I want him away from cunts like you. Always looking for a scapegoat.

Fuck England and your reductive, shitty, tabloid football.

You're fucking Leeds not Stoke, you're supposed to have a clue, supposed to see that the National team is a hiding to nothing.

On reflection, you are right, lazy comparison. I do however see mediocrity when I watch him in an England shirt. He likely plays differently for Everton.

A Premier League point of view right there!
"My team".....oops.

Henderson is fucking pony just like Leeds (my team natch),but then again I'm not in denial,unlike most of the short changed experts that "attend" Old Trafford,Anfield and.......Wemberlee.

Re: The mighty Lions v some lot in green

Just had to google double pivot.

2 defensive midfielders.

Liverpool and England are almost identical these days. Lots pf possession and always qualifying but just something lacking to actually win anything.

Also both tourist clubs unfortunately.

Used to love Anfield in the seventies, real edgy place with a fantastic atmosphere. My son went last season and said it put him off us going up a bit he hardly heard a scouse accent and what atmosphere there was apart from the Leeds fans was whipped up through the tannoy.

I don't watch him play for Liverpool so I have no idea how good he is but against Slovenia he was tackled on the edge of his box, stayed down for some time. When he eventually got up he did the usual shouting at various Slovenian  defenders who hadnt hurt him.

But just a couple of minutes later when running for a 50/50 challenge he went into short step mode and ended up  no where near the ball.

But I'm a cunt too and if he's the best we have we are going nowhere.

I imagine that if Klopp had the money to compete with the self proclaimed Special One his position in the Liverpool team would be under threat too.

He is however streets ahead of anyone at Leeds but in truth he's closer to Stoke than to where Liverpool should be.

And he uses skin care products without a hint of embarrassment.

It's also known as the 'double 6'. For those of you that are interested....

Re: The mighty Lions v some lot in green

Dont know about all that, my lads team got beat 11-2 today. We need to play 8 at the back and 7 in “pivot”.

Re: The mighty Lions v some lot in green

Genuinely never heard two players who played today.  Winks and Tripper.  I couldn't pick out Bertram, Stones or Lingard out of a lineup either.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Winks and Tripper.

Best thing I can say about him is that he's dedicated and making the most of his abilities - and you can't fault that

I think this is the whole point and it is one of English mentality. We never win anything, so no player wants to play, the clubs don't want them to play and they know they will get slagged-off to high heaven when they do agree to play, unless they can feign injury. The fans just get pissed off and slag off the players, and each other, including on this blog. The whole thing is rotten.

This is hardly a successful back-drop to being able to win any tournament. What the answer is, I don't know as this is a never-ending downward spiral.
