I wouldn’t totally give up on Pope but he looked like Llorente with the ball at his feet.
I hate to say it but I might have to go back to Pickford

My god we are really light with quality defenders & strikers

-------------------------------- Ramsdale -----------------------------

Alexander-Arnold ------ White ------ Coady ------ Trippier

Saka ----- Foden --------- Rice --- Bellingham --- Harrison

-------------------------------- Kane -----------------------------------

Everton's Anthony Gordon just misses out

Nowhere near good enough to win a World Cup but it's the best we have imo!

Trying to be realistic about this - players likely to start rather than my own complete choice:

Pickford

Trippier - Walker - Dier - Stones - Shaw

Rice - Bellingham

Saka - Kane - Sterling

Reece James, Chilwell, Foden, Mount, Grealish, and Radford most likely to be used from the rest of the squad. Ramsdale would be my 2nd keeper (but who knows since he didn't get used in these latest games)

Personally - would love to see TAA and Ben White involved. Disappointed Toney didn't get a chance to see what he can offer as an impact sub in the firendlies. Would also like to see Kalvin involved but it's looking highly unlikely now.

Do I think that team is good enough? Not on recent form. But you never know in a tournament. We should qualify from the group and hopefully we can get some momentum going from there.

At least my team is slightly different especially at the back where we have looked vulverable.

To be fair, Southgate hasn't got a lot to work with. Take all the quality world/european players out of the Premier League & it appears ordinary.

TAA is the best right wing back we've probably ever had in this country

*attacking

You only have to google taa defending to see how horrendous he is defensively and Southgate prefers to play a solid/tight team defensively.

Saying that, we're really lacking inspiration going forward

Would love to see him as rwb in a 3/5 at the back so he wouldn't be so defensively needed

Thats the formation England have been playing. So it makes total sense to play TAA in that formation with slighltly less defensive responsibility. He played Saka at LWB against Italy. And I'm sure that wasn't because he thought Saka was better defensively than Shaw or Chilwell.

yeah true

tbf i've lost track of what formation we play now

thought it was settled on 3-5-2

but recently seems to be 3-4-3 or even 4-3-3/4-4-2

big problem is we don't seem to know what our best formation is and we don't have players that fit nicely into one formation - lots of players playing in different positions for their clubs than in the england setup etc.
