Sterling is phenomenal for England now.

 

18 months ago I was questioning why he was in the squad, never mind the starting 11 or even subs bench.

I'll happily eat humble pie and state I think he's one of the best footballers in the world right now.

What a game this has been to watch. It's so refreshing to see a team (not seen as elite level) having a go against England. England have shown how good we are as an attacking team but Kosovo have exposed our vulnerabilities on the defensive sense. It would be nice if all international breaks had games like this.

I think the commentator was probably correct. We turned lazy in the second half due to thinking job done and they caught us out. You could also tell that the original mind-set was to keep charging forward looking for goals but from about the 75th minute we controlled it much better and remembered we were actually 2 goals up. 

Overall still happy with performance. 1 win next month sees us qualify ?

I'm assuming you just mean in that individual game because England have beaten loads of team much higher ranked than Kosovo lately.

I also think that they would have been far less gung-ho against better opposition. Could have been 8-3 by the end either way.

I think the opposition's level did have an effect on the game. You go 5-1 up against a team at half time and some heads would switch off regardless of the opposition. Great credit to Kosovo for making it an interesting game and were it not for our clinical finishing in the first half, it could well have been points dropped.

The thing is, we could just as easily say that if we weren't sloppy at the back we could have won 8-0.

For me, this is the most entertaining England team I've seen in a long long time. I'll take the odd calamity in defense as long as I get to watch attacking football.

This reminds me of something .. What can it be... *thinking overload *

Hmmm...

Now I remember - It is the way Boro play atm (when it's best)

    • We had some impressive results and performances in that PL season against Top 10 teams with a net spend of 17m (De Roon making up the majority of this net with a 13m fee). The whole club were not invested in the project and a few individuals in the background were working against AK. Imagine the difference if we were able to add to the squad with some of the names linked below in 2016/17: Lukas Rupp (signed for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) Aissa Mandi (signed for Real Betis)  Dennis Praet (signed for Sampdoria) James Morrison (signed a contract extension at West Brom) Michail Antonio (signed a contract extension with West Ham) Clément Grenier  Clement Chantome (signed for Stade Rennais) Hakim Ziyech Domagoj Vida  Tim Krul Khouma Babacar Thomas Meunier (signed for PSG) Neven Subotic (deal fell through after failed medical) Harry Maguire Enzo Fernández Gerard Deulofeu Fernando Llorente (signed for Swansea)  Tomas Kalas (signed for Fulham)  Laurent Depoitre Jefferson Montero Alvaro Arbeloa (signed for West Ham)  Denis Cheryshev Rachid Ghezzal Filip Djordjevic Kenneth Vermeer Jon Walters Cheick Tiote Henri Bedimo Rachid Ghezzal Gökhan Gönül Keiren Westwood Pepe Reina Martin Skrtel (signed for Fenerbahçe)  Cameron Jerome Sergi Samper Ryan Bennett Cristi Săpunaru Mike van der Hoorn (signed for Swansea) Blerim Džemaili Lee Cattermole Matt Philips (signed for West Brom) Chris Gunter Ramadel Falcao Matz Sels (signed for Newcastle) Vincent Aboubakar Martin Caceres Nicolai Jorgensen Santiago Arias Tomáš Necid Jeff Hendrick (signed for Burnley) Robin Van Persie Demarai Grey Filip Helander Yakou Meite (signed for Reading) Andre Ayew Wesley Hoedt
    • Usually 15% of capacity unless the police decide otherwise. So should be around 5200 - dependent on the layout of the stadium.  Our official (dry) coaches are departing at 5.20am!
