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.
