Yes I think that is correct CT

So I suppose the question is, from an England perspective, are we more likely to beat the better teams at home or at a neutral or even away venue?

Heading away with the good lady wife so won’t be back on before the final. Sincerest best wishes to the ordinary English fans on here. Hope it happens for you 💪

Few excellent posts regarding the final and the tournament as a whole. On the pitch Southgate got basically every decision he made spot on leading upto the final. Even the decision to go to a win

This quote from GS on BBC's live text seems to confirm that:

"It is a rarity in tournament football. There is a prize because we want to stay at Wembley and it is a great opportunity for people but a consequence of not doing so well is less fatal. It is great night for our attacking players to express themselves."

You'd think that alone would be a massive incentive to go for the win. Lets see if the manager and players act that way...

Saka offers more defensively is the reason I suspect.

Foden was dropped because he's on a yellow card and Southgate didn't want to take the risk.  What surprised me is that he's the only England player to pick up a yellow card so far.  Seems slightly odd that.

Yellow cards will count if two teams finish level in the group. Having bad discipline could cost a team a lot. It seems that a lot of teams are playing safe with discipline

A neutral venue might be the ideal option...smaller crowd of supporters and no "Wembley pressure".

Other teams seem to be performing well at their home venues, so that would likely favour whoever we play.

I am really saddened regarding all the negative comments regarding Southgate, we all need to realise that the man is a footballing genius. Our choice of player, tactics, commitment, skill levels and timing have all been world class, in fact we are so good that most of the other teams won’t even try and compete with us. Right that takes care of the synchronised knee bending, as far as the football goes he is clueless

This midfield of Rice and Phillips cannot go on if theyre trying to do the exact same thing

Kane's dropping into Centre Back because neither of them like to play a forward pass

Doesn't matter how bad Sterling plays looks like his the teflon kid, 1st name on the team sheet. 

It’s a story about a goat, a man naked and a pair of wellies.. just saying,

There's one of those fouls we were on about the other day with the penalty call that people said was never a penalty. That's a foul on Kane so it was definitely a penalty too, for me.

    • Indeed and boy the Americans love a franchise, perhaps this one will move Derby back to the States!
    • What! that time already? Talk about wishing your life away!🤪
    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
