    Foden is totally wasted on the left wing. I don't see how he could perform there. I guess he's played there for tactical reasons for the team but individually it's not a good look for him.

    Kind of feel like Foden is being wasted at City. He’s not a wide player and should be playing centrally.

    Such a snooze fest watching him struggle to get on the ball and then just playing a 10 yard pass back to Ake.

    Boothroyd for all his faults, at least knew how to get the best out of him.

    No I think ogs is trying to make a statement with all these changes like 'im the boss' because of last week's performance

    Beginning to wonder whether Pickford will survive as number 1 until our next lot of games.

    He did make some fantastic saves but that tackle on VVD was awful and reckless! How that wasn’t deemed a red card is incredible even if the offside was the first offence. If he does that in a major Championship we would be down to 10 men after 7 mins. He’s just a liability at the moment.

    2 assists and a goal for rashford. If only he put that much effort in for England last 2 games

    Difficult to Blame him. There weren’t any Creative players in the team, he can’t take the ball from the halfway line and dribble past everyone

    Saka had a really nice game as a box to box LCM. If Southgate only wants hard workers in midfield then he’s one who also can play football

    I know but he took the easy option all the time. Passing backwards.

    Pickfords shotstopping is second to none. But he keeps having brain fade,

    Mira weird because tierney is a lcb in defence but gets forward like a left wing back and saka comes into the half space from the left but acts as a wing back in defence

    amn plays that role wel too

    After seeing some of Harry Kane’s recent passing / assists ( another fabulous assist today ) .. has looking more like a central midfielder by the day :)

    Wonder when he’ll start moving back into midfield ala Ray Kennedy ?

    Southgate has reverted back to type and picked shiit tactics.
    I remember the last UEFA nations where we played so well away in Spain and Croatia . Then in the final 4 he picked players like delph and rice in midfield..

    The formation he picked v Denmark was the worst I have seen since the McClaren era. An unbalanced back 5 with 3 right backs and 2 defensive mids..
    against a team that are solid but hardly devastating opposition .
    Grealish , Sancho , Winks and Maddison ignored .

    My ideal team would be

    4-3-3


    Grealish.... Kane.... Sancho

    Winks....Henderson....Maddison

    Chilwell....Stones....Maguire.....Trent

    .............Pickford


    Southgate would never pick that team though..
    He will never learn and always revert back to type .

    Isn’t Rice supposed to be protecting the back four ??

    Let’s hope not. Never a good idea to play a striker in midfield, didn’t work well for Rooney.

    As he slows down it’s an option though ..
