|What I find quite incredible is that I've seen a number of articles about various players and just very recently about the new blue away strip, which all assume that we've already qualified for the 2018 World Cup.
We are nowhere near certainties to qualify. Slovakia, especially, have a reasonable chance of finishing top and would anyone really fancy our chances against any other side in a two-leg play off between the second placed countries? Especially with the highly uninspirational Southgate trying to motivate the team.
Lithuania at Wembley on Sunday is just the type of game that we've messed up countless times in the past.|
|can never understand why a friendly is played 4 days before a qualifier..absolutely bonkers.|
England will play well tonight and win.
England usually play well in meaningless friendlies against top teams. Its just in important games that we struggle.|
|RIP Graham Taylor. By no means the greatest England manager, but a decent and honest bloke.|
|Saw this tweet:
FIFA confirm a 48 team World Cup from 2026, which will give teams like Burkina Faso and Lego Land the opportunity to eliminate England.
|Im sure people were saying the same about Ranieri on arrival at Leicester, that he could only possible expect a relegation battle..but theirin the compariosn ends.
Southgate as a player was a spineless showboater, never put a shift in|
|How do you think any manager would have done managing that Boro team? We'll never know of course, but his record for England U 21s was superb.|
|I think he's being harshly judged, mainly because he missed a penalty once and he's not a perceived 'super manager'. With expectations at zero, he can only have upside imo.
I can see him being Sir Gareth in 2020.|
|jules rimet gets further and further away....|
|so the peasants at the FA have done nothing surprising, Southgate is appointed, 4 more years of mediocrity, they didnt even interview anyone else.. they have just appointed another YES man ..as someone earlier put it.. Woy mark II...
time for the whole FA board to be dismantled... bring in people like Lineker , Shearer and other sportsmen.... could they do any worse?.. i think not !!!|
|So you'd rather replace an Englishman that knows all the players with a German who doesn't, and also doesn't actually have a great track record? To be fair, he could teach Vardy how to dive in less obvious fashion.|
|There's still hope that a Southgate reign can be avoided. Klinsmann has just been sacked by the USA. Wonder who Trump will replace him with. Can't see Mitt Romney taking the job.|
|Jack that makes no sense. At best you're hoping Southgate can do a Di matteo and luck out. Thing is he had a team of world class players and leaders when Chelski won the CL. You're suggesting that because decent managers have failed we should just appoint a rubbish one? Sorry that is nonsense mate.|
|Southgate is Taylor mark 2.......|
|weve got average players, journeymen, some young talent coming through but hard to assess if they are world class imho.
in terms of managers, who would have thought that an Aussie would be looking after either the cricket or the rugby England teams? therefore my vote goes to a German, any German, maybe Klinsmann..:-)|
|Was Erikkson? Capelli? Woy? None of them have won anything since Sir Alf, and we've had several supposedly top quality managers, and several good teams.
I repeat, what have we got to lose? Its not as if anyone expects us to win the World Cup in 2018. We've got Vardy as a centre forward.|
|Great shout for Rafa. He would be an ideal candidate imo. Won't happen though. England played ok last night for a while but friendlies are hard to judge. England have a shortage of decent managers but is Southgate even a decent manager?|
|I think the FA will stick with Southgate and everyone will be saying he is a nice intelligent calm man.
I just know it will end up the same way as nice man Roy.
I don't want nice I want results consistent results, hungry winners.|
|Yes, Rafa could be a good shout. He has never managed an international team, but obviously has a very good track record in knock out competitions.
I still think the FA will stick with Gazza though. After all, 4 managers in a year would make us a laughing stock.|
