Talk about Whataboutery! Everybody in the world owns something that was made in China, the laptop, tablet or phone that you used to access this site or the TV that you watched the England game on will

I doubt if England, Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy etc. all boycotted the Competition nothing would happen but the truth is that while players are taking the knee thousands have died working in d

You are probably correct Dan. I have calmed down ever so slightly this morning. I am amusing myself with the thought that someone on here complained that England only won 5-0 the other night 😂

Decent goal that like

Great strike from Maguire. Polish defenders throwing themselves to the ground looking for the foul. Served them right

 No, I agree it was very pedestrian far too easy to defend against a better team will comfortable shut England out and just wait for Stones to F*** up

Apparently it’s the first works Cup qualifying game they’ve lost at home since that great 5-1 defeat at the hands of England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

A far from convincing performance against Poland. Again pretty pedestrian for much of the game. Lots of possession and lots of passing around, without really threatening to score.

Had to rely on Sterling winning a penalty to take the lead. About the only useful contribution he made.

Like most of us I'm sure, I saw Poland's equaliser coming the moment Stones dithered on the ball. At least he managed partial redemption with the flick on from the corner to set up Maguire's winner.

As expected, while looking fairly comfortable in possession, England struggled to create anything in an attacking sense.

On the plus side, it was a much sterner test than the previous two games and hopefully Southgate and the players will learn a lot from it (and we won...somehow). On the negative side, England look miles away from being trophy winners.

Defensively we're still a bit suspect. Poland did manage to give us a few scares. Imagine what it would have been like if Lewandowski had been playing. Creatively we are incredibly lightweight. Still too much sideways and backwards passing, with lone runners like Sterling going up blind alleys that have no end product 90% of the time.

Speaking of which that guy just annoys the crap out of me. He almost never looks up or seems to have any idea where his team mates are. Seems as blinkered as a racehorse, the way he tries to take on entire defences by himself, ending up falling over and/or losing the ball.

Waste of a shirt IMO - even if he did win us a penalty this time out.

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
