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 💪

Every England fan last night  (Caution industrial language)    IMG_1425.MP4

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

Looks much better tonight, lads ... More intent and drive. 

You should be glad, Grealish chose to be English, as he played International Youth games for Ireland 😎👌

I hope you stay at Wembley ... And I think it will be Portugal coming for a visit.

sterling needs to stay higher up on the shoulder. he's literally brainless when deeper. absolute liability. 

when we press higher in forward positions we look decent. but our build up from defense to midfield is dire. we are like a totally different side in different areas of the pitch.

England look better, but The Czechs are unlucky not to have been on the scoreboard, a couple of timely blocks there. Sako is giving us some drive and pace but that midfield of Rice and Phillips is just not working, they are essentially occupying the same space

Which is so weird because they showed vs Croatia that Phillips can play higher

Well that was definitely better than the Scotland game...though it would have been hard to be worse.

Not surprising that the 2 new guys, Saka and Grealish combined to set up Sterling for the goal (with a bit of help from Kane). Unlucky not to have scored with his chipped effort that hit the post.

A rare moment of quality in an otherwise fairly mundane first half. Nice to see Kane at least getting a shot on target.

Still a tad frustrating how slow, laboured and defensive-minded England are. Our ONLY outlets are Saka and Grealish. The only times we've even tried to get forward have been when they have been on the ball.

We've allowed Czech Rep more time and space to play than is really comfortable and consequently they've had some good chances of their own. Against better teams we would have been punished. England really need to change their mindset and play style if they want to progress much further.

Hope we can up the tempo a bit 2nd half, or make some changes and start creating more.

Southgate would be mad to drop a quality class player like Sterling 😁

He's class when he's in goalscoring positions, but an absolute liability when he drops back and tries to contribute to build up play.

Biggest problem with England for me is our fullbacks being camped in our own half with 2 holding midfielders. 

Playing 2 holding midfielders should give more freedom to the fullbacks (dullbacks).

    • 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 🤷‍♂️
