    I’m not blaming Dier, it’s a lot deeper than this. We should be 0/3 down
     
    W.A.S.P. and Toosaul repped this.

    So that was proper counter-attacking, what Belgium did before the penalty.

    This is an absolute disasterclass. Should be 2 down already. The defence could not look anymore uncomfortable.

    The annoying thing is we don't even look better defensively for playing like this. At least if we did there'd be some logic to it. We actually just look worse all round.

    This could be a proper massacre here. Even without Hazard and Mertens.

    The only silver lining is Southgate has to see how this system simply doesn’t work and change it surely?

    We have more right backs on the bench. One more might work

    You can see what will happen .. he’ll maybe make a nonsense sub at half time but wait until around 75 to 80 minutes before putting JackG and a few others on ...

    I fear that the main solution he will see to this will be bringing in Coady in to the back 3 instead, and hopeful that Sterling and Kane back will fix the impotency of our attack.

    The Denmark game was atrocious and he didn't say anything negative about the system then either. Weirdly he acknowledge that the back 3 had limitations in beating the big sides after the world cup though. Not quite sure how beating big sides playing 4-3-3 has lead to him changing his mind again a year later though.

    Can’t blame him, 7 defenders behind him there’s not much he can do

    It could work with the right players in the back three .. I’d have gone Keane Coady Mings

    It’s a fair point, to play defensively but to be this easy to play through is unforgivable. It’s been a bit like watching United this season, any pressure and the players seem to fall apart.
