Football should be like that all the time TBH, with even more flair and tricks. It’s fear and stupid coaching discipline that makes it into such a grind.

Yep and the sad thing is, eventually Kosovo will become the new Bulgaria of today. It’s inevitable. See Nigeria, Romania, exiting international teams going for it, conforming to going along with whatever is considered the way to go! Tonight’s match wasn’t like just another international match, it was football at its most entertaining, silly, rawness and long May both teams play this way and others too. :thup:

Didn't watch last nights game but just caught up on the highlights. Sterling is fantastic for us up front now. He needs to play ever minute when fit, it's those runs they are so dangerous, but now he's got end product of Kane to pass to it's pretty devastating. Thought in the World Cup against Croatia our fatal mistake was taking him off. We just had nothing after that.

Sancho looks like could end up equally as dangerous as Sterling, so that front 3 is looking world class. Just a shame about the rest of it really, it's not awful but it's very limited. The mistakes for the goals was painful to watch. Quite liked finishing from Berisha, both his goals were tidy.

It’s enjoyable watching England now, international fortnights are great at the moment. I like how they’re spread over about 6 days so there’s plenty of football to keep you going. Was crap when they were all played the same night.

:lol: no, I'm sure you know all the tactical nuances. But saying "that was terrible to watch" is objectively bullshit. You can criticize defending/players/tactics but this idea that because your analyzing the game from a tactical standpoint therefore the game was s*** because neither team defended well is pompous bullshit.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

Just noticed that England are away to the Czechs in Prague tomorrow night with an 8.45pm local time kick-off and with 7000 English over there for it - what's the worst that could happen?!

I am not excited by that England squad.  In fact, I'd go as far as saying that there are more players there which I just don't rate than in any other England team from the last 20 years.

And that front four is awesome. One of the best out-and-out strikers, Sterling who’s been s***-hot for 18 months, Sancho one of the best young talents in the world and Mount has been excellent. Fair play leaving Rashford out.

That front three behind Kane man ... wow. So young and so talented. Really think England have a lot to look forward to over the coming years. So jealous man.

Think some of you are a bit harsh on Rice. Think he's at least really good defensively and covers for the attacking players well. Think  both he and Henderson should really allow for the 3 attacking midfielders to get forward and have more of an impact in the final third.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.
