Southgate chucked the baby out with the bath water. Team was crying out for some Lingard and Grealish quality. Five full backs? He’s lost the plot. A legend in his own ego. What are some managers trying to prove? One of our own Kane, taking corners at the last one, left wingers playing left back before that. And Pep? Well? Very poor performance from him last night Southgate orders to pass sideways & back only? I think the players were overwhelmed by the occassion. Simple as that. Darren Cleaver. We have kept two clean sheets so Declan being the deeper of the two DMs obviously did his job again. They should have told him to drive the ball forward earlier but surely that is why Sterling, Foden, Mount and Grealish are there. Truth is Scotland played well and none of our quality players stood out. Neither side deserved to win or lose. I’d rather have 4 points than 1 today. In the garden he walks with me

I predicted a draw before the game Scotland badly needed a result and England were never going to over exert themselves It was heading for a bore draw before it kicked off. They play how their told to play, same o same o from Southgate, its a good squad , it’s the tactics. All of the midfield were second best beaten to the ball every-time by the Scots who wanted it more! Rice has clearly been told he’s not allowed to bring the ball much beyond the half way line. He’s a victim of Southgates woeful tactics. The whole English team made Scotland look good. One of the few decent performers in a mediocre performance by England. Rice kept passing the ball sideways and back I would drop both him and Phillips , bring in Henderson and Grealish and play two up front, Kane needs help up there In the garden he walks with me

We didn’t need two CDM s against Scotland. The England team were frightened of a result from Scotland they were frightened to go forward unless they were caught out at the back they showed too much respect to the Scottish team. He was absolutely wasted yesterday. We’ve seen how he plays for us, swapping with Soucek and driving the ball forward, and the one time he got to do that last night we nearly scored. There’s no point in him even going if Southgate isn’t going to play him to his strengths. Sidestep back step waste of talent, Southgates fault set up to contain Hopeless performance. Actually I thought he was solid and obviously done what he was asked to do. Don’t blame Dec, blame the coach for a crap performance. Kane, Sterling and Shaw out for next game. Let’s have Grealish, Rashford and Bellingham and Chilwell in.
