High intensity game from England. Always looking to move the ball forward.

Rashford instead of Sancho ? Not for me.

That intensity in midfield from Phillips and mount and co. Chasing everything. High tempo

Feels like Arsenal have missed that type of intensity in the middle of the pitch for so long,

Yes, we miss that type of intensity for much too long.

As long as Saka isn't knackered, I'm not too fussed about England at Euro 2020. Congrats on beating Croatia's geriatricos 1-0, though. If it'll take your mind off Xhaka, it's probably good for your health.

It did occur to me the performance of Kalvin Phillips was the type of display our Swiss friend was incapable of. Competing for every ball across the middle at lightening pace allowing Modric very little time in possession.

Basically offer Leeds every midfielder we have bar Partey in exchange for him!

A change in the structure of our midfield could change our fortunes but England looked good for once I have to say.

Hey I’m not asking him to agree to my point, he was the one disagreeing to my posts and harping on about it.

I was responding to your posts. You brought Jorginho into the debate when I asked you who these players were who you thought would move for money than Xhaka. First, your that contradicts your apparent point that transfer fee size is the measure of player quality if you seriously think Xhaka is so bad (the worst you’ve seen play for Arsenal). Player quality is an influence on transfer fee size, I’ve said that all along. But it’s not the only one as I’ve explained at length to you because other things affect transfer fee size.

You’ve also made the point that none of our midfielders would get into the midfields of those above us. That’s what puzzled me when you mentioned Jorghino after I asked you to name the worse players than Xhaka who would move for more money than Xhaka. Jorghino regularly gets into Chelsea’s side.

I know you will respond again as you have to have the last word. That’s another reason I suspect you’re a sad obsessive.

Are you any surer now? The right men for the job on the day, so well done Southgate. Only downside was Kane's relatively ineffectual showing. He looked slower than Xhaka, but hopefully will come good.

Phillips looks a very very good player. Great energy and looks to be able to spot a pass.

For me he’s in the 11, when he plays he always looks the player most likely to connect the dots in the final third. The fact we won doesn’t change for me he should have been involved. Also don’t get the trippier at left back thing or the fact Sancho didn’t make the bench.

Yes your right though a good performance and your also right on Kane who really didn’t do well at all.

If it wasn’t so sad your hypocritical obsessiveness would almost be amusing. Let’s see how long it’ll take Mr ‘I have to have the last word’ Top Gun to reply?

It was an entertaining 2nd half, I agree with sourpuss Roy Keane that the Dutch won't be going far in the tournament with that defence though.
With England I was most happy with the clean sheet and lack of any clear cut chances or proper saves for Pickford. If England have ambitions on winning the Euro's is has to be based on defence. People talk about all the attacking talent we have (and that is true) but this is pretty much 7 games of knock out football. When Spain won the Euros or World Cup I think they won every knock out game 1-0. Even when teams are coming down the stretch in a tight title race the results turn in to 1-0 wins rather than anything too expansive.
Without getting too far ahead of ourselves England's route if they win the group looks to be
R2 Portugal/Germany
QF Spain
SF Netherlands/Turkey
F Italy/France

I don't think the dutch team will win it all - they lack firepower up front and without Van Dijk they'll get exposed defensively. But I have to give them credit; even now when they've had a downward trajectory for a number of years, they're still entertaining to watch. I've been following football since the early 90s and there have been very few international tournaments where the Netherlands haven't been one of the bright spots.

I was born in Scotland to Scottish parents, although I’ve lived in England for over 50 years. That said, the excruciating bluster I’m hearing before the Czech game, over confidence and lack of respect for the opposition, is leading me to expect the usual letdown. We’ll see.

I suppose he must be. At this point, given that Scotland don't have a prayer, I'd like to see him resting up for next season.

Think that's pretty common for smaller nations to be honest, I see a lot of simliar talk about Sweden's game tonight where some seem to expect a win. To me this Swedish team has a couple of interesting young attacking players but a pretty terrible defense. And when the defense isn't good, it usually doesn't bode well.
