    I seem to remember Shearer saying if they punished him for it, he'd never play For England again and they caved in.

    One night, they walked into an exclusive restaurant, where he was been treated to a meal by someone he was doing work for there, place was full, Shearer started with the do you know who we are lines and was pretty rude, the owner eventually said somethingon the lines of, no, I do not know who you are and with your attitude, even if I had a table, you are not welcome in here. He was in their company on other occasions and said they are ****ers, especially Shearer, really thinks he's something.

    Don't know much about lineker beyond his reputation as a legendary swordsman which i can't hold against him <laugh>. I know of someone who's crossed paths with Shearer and the feedback was similar to Gessa.

    Right my take & a few issues after watching the whole game this morning, was really difficult to judge on Saturday as the stream was horrible & I had to watch the match without any commentary, it was that bad.

    We certainly know how to shoot ourselves in the foot
    please log in to view this image


    Firstly, why was Gnonto subbed? Some really nice touches & he rarely gave the ball away. Greenwood was less efficient as his replacement & was one of our players caught napping for their third goal.

    Even worse, why take Roca off whom was controlling our midfield brilliantly, I can't recall Marc losing possession, all his passes were cute & sweet, his pass for Rodrigo's 2nd goal was delghtful. We totally lost the midfield in the last ten minutes after his departure, After Rodrigo he was arguably the MOTM.

    Koch was brilliant at the back until he stuck a leg out on Kulusevski rather than just guide him onto the goal-line.

    Coops did some good things, my god when he goes wrong he is bad, jogging & ambling about marking fresh air, made a horrible defensive header into the path of Bentancur for one of his goals.

    Pascal & Aaronson went to sleep from a throw-in for one of their goals. Our Big Pirate went napping on a couple of occasions.

    Adams also went napping twice standing still marking fresh air allowing Baentacur & Davies to shoot & score with no pressing whatsoever. Tyler also committed five dreadful fouls & can have no argument about his dismissal

    Kristensen played well, a headed assist for Rodrigo's first goal.

    Attacking-wise Rodrigo, Aaronson & Summervile were superb.

    Its happened for years, Shearer and the big culprit was John Terry, that cnut put more players on the treatment table than most and very rare got booked or sent off.

    I also hope England get dumped out of the tournament early, that two faced cnut Southgate gets sacked, he quoted.... players have to be fit, playing regular for there club and obviously in form!!!! so he picks that half chat from Citeh with less than 45 mins under his belt, Maguire is is complete crap and cant get in his side, also picked, Walker also been crocked and not match fit, so what the fck is that all about.
    I again feel sorry for the fans who are paying a **** load of money to go.

    Gnonto for greenwood was tactical. 4231 to 433. According to Jesse. Logic was to stop coops getting pulled out of position by Kane. And thus weakening the left hand side defensively. Gnonto is a forward… and greenwood is being turned into a midfielder.

    We went 541 to try and see the game out. If we pull one of the pivots it’s always roca - don’t know if that’s because he doesn’t have the natural fitness levels of some of the others. But he’s quite slow and less of a defender than Adams… or maybe the logic was he’s the playmaker of the two and we don’t need one in a 541. Could also be he wants athletes when playing a containing game. But hey, as is evident, I’m guessing here. I agree that if you’re playing 4 across the middle, ordinarily you’d expect the middle 2 to be your pivots.

    I just find it difficult to forget club loyalty so I can’t help but laugh when Maguire makes a huge ****up in an England shirt.

    Definitely not a Southgate fan, especially as he got the job by default. However in his defence increasing squad sizes to 26 players gave him a lot of leeway and there'll be 7 or 8 in that squad who don't get a kick.

    Here is a good one for you similar to that, Andy Gray and Richard Keys were members of the Doha Golf Club, and the previous GM was head hunted to return to run the operations due to a guy there being weak.
    He told the bag storage lads to throw out all golf clubs that had not paid for them to be stored, there was loads of them on the main lawn, maybe 30 plus bags.
    I was in the reception area chatting to the GM over whatever and up walked fkg dick and liddie (Keys & Gray) they asked for the new GM there, yes he replied, thats me, Keys then mouthed off, our clubs are not in the storage bag area and have been thrown out, GM said yes you'll find em on the front lawn, in the mean time an arab walked up in his white dishdash who i knew vey well, hello Hassan i said and so did the GM, Keys was now in full flight, ignored the arab and said to the GM do you know who we are and who we bring to this club, the GM said i dont give a toss who you are, you havent paid fees for 3 years so your clubs are out and now so are you, Hassan said this is not good, Keys said whats it to do with you, Hassan introduced himself as the President of the Olympic Committee and QGA (Qatar Golf Association) and threatened to have them arrested and put in jail for fraud, ive never seen anyone go that white before, fkg quality.

    Most people thought we were better after half time.

    True enough about the 541. But then no system works if the players fck up.

    Well for me Maguire had to go...he's played enough football and dosen't have an injury.

    The other two should be watching on TV like the rest of us.
