As much as the result last night was disappointing, we didn’t lose, remember this Hungary side took points off both France and Germany in the Euros and were holding Portugal at 0-0 until the 84th minute.
A few weeks back we beat them 4-0 away, these results performances happen.
Give form players a chance by all means, but producing it on the International Stage is totally different, DCL had a great season for us last year and rightly deserved a place in the squad, but he doesn’t carry the presence or threat of Kane or even Sterling.
Abraham scored against Andorra...
That’s fine if he hadn’t of brought off Kane, if you are going to push players up, you need to have the strikers capable of getting on the end and personally I’d rather have a 70% Harry Kane or Raheem Sterling than a 100% Tammy Abraham.
I’d of took of Mount for Henderson, give Foden a free role...
I genuinely thought the 15 mins Henderson played he tried to drive us forward and was trying to get other players to step up.
As much as I rate Rice and Philips, Henderson brings leadership to the side that they haven’t yet developed.
Very disappointing performance from England, some credit must go to Hungary who were almost back to the Hungarian team we saw at the Euros.
Not sure there were any stand out English players.
One thing that stood out was that we currently don’t have any back up to Kane and Sterling, they didn’t...
So a defender mis-controls a ball, you say offside and an attacker mis-times his run and that’s offside, that is favouring the defence and only punishing one player for making a mistake.
As it stands it’s only not offside if the defending player makes a deliberate attempt to play the ball...
It comes down to the word deliberate and its interpretation by the Referee, surely the clarification has been made to reduce inconsistencey by Officials? There’s been nothing worse than a Ref giving a decision one week and another Ref the week after seeing it differently.
What about the scenario were a player is an offside position and a defender intercepts a pass then cocks up a deliberate backpass.
I agree it’s not clear, but it is intended to give the attack the advantage
It was clarified earlier this year when City scored against Villa and Rodri took the ball off Mings when coming back from an offside position.
Spurs won a penalty a few years back at Anfield when Lovren mishit the ball to Kane who was offside when the ball was played
It’s not offside if an...
You mean the post were phil answered and has received no acknowledgement from Kellfire, or my initial post he ignored and then gone on to play the victim.
Why should Phil take it as a genuine question when hours earlier in the football thread he was taking the p!ss out of how phil posts?
There’s no outrage, so please let’s not over react.
I’m very sorry, but Kellfire’s question wasn’t reasonable, he know’s exactly what he posted and he knows enough about the military to know that isn’t how they work, he has stated his anti-military views numerous times on here and approx 3 posts...
I don’t need my points validated, but if I was directly responded to and had my post questioned I’d at least explain my point or apologise if I was wrong.
As for taking posters liking your post as somehow seeing some merit in said post and not them “playing the man” (who your post is about) is...
Tough! Grow up, there’s nothing I wouldn’t say on here I wouldn’t say to your face.
You want to explain post #296 and show me his response!
No answer to post #301 either, just an edit to my response to harpo.
Never you, always the victim.
