    Seen this. or similar, several times now. How have we all decided that we know what system(s?) Lampard is going to employ? We've seen one friendly so far, for all we know, Frank might have had a crisis of confidence and decided to go with the 'lump it up to the big lad' tactic.* *For the hard of understanding, I should point out that I don't think that this is very likely.

    Wanna bet? Still excited though.
  3. But it will. Give it ten years.
  4. All sounds a bit complicated and not really going to help much. We need English players playing regularly in teams at the top of the Premier League and in European competitions, A simple overseas player cap will go a long way to help. No more than 4 overseas players in a matchday squad.

    £159 million? Seems fair enough to me. 🤡

    Not cheating I don't think, just benefiting from awful refereeing.

    Yes, when you look at it slow motion, at normal speed no way can it be said that it looks deliberate.
  9. No, Pearl Ram is right. The flying of a flag upside down indicates that a vessel is in distress. I suppose that could mean that the people flying the Union Flag upside down aren't wrong after all.

    Good old Beeb, right on the ball as always. Although I'm fairly confident that we'd have been able to cobble a full squad together somehow. Funny thing is, the above players are the ones who've come through the World Cup with the least criticism.
  11. Why does no one in this country know which way up to fly the Union Flag? I swear, the next time that I see some "Look at me! I'm patriotic, I am." idiot with his flag upside down, I'm gonna set fire to it.
  12. Yes, you're right, I agree with you, but, couldn't she, just well. er, Ignore it? What sort of adult cries because some half-wit says nasty things on Twitter? FFS woman, pull yourself together.
  13. How to take the next step? A cap on the number of non-British players at domestic level. If we're truthful England's performances at this world cup have been fairly ordinary. Nothing to do with 'heart' or 'desire'. Nothing to do with the coaching staff or the systems and tactics used, quite simply, the teams that are likely to reach finals have better players than England. I don't believe other countries produce more intrinsically better players, but they are better at bringing those players through and getting the best out of them. Whilst ever our top division allows teams to be something like 70% non-English, then not enough young players will get a regular game and will therefore never fully realise the talent that they have. At present, the pool of talent available for the English team is just not big enough.

    Aye, but the scouts had seen Blackman anorl.
