Czech Republic v England [EURO 2020]

1 Name: 606 2021-06-22 19:12
Czech Republic v England (20:00 BST)

Gareth Southgate has backed captain Harry Kane.

The striker is yet score at Euro 2020 and was substituted during the opening win over Croatia and Friday's goalless draw with Scotland.

"The only thing that is relevant is his importance to the team. He's been our best and most influential player for a long period of time.

"There have been moments when the likes of Raheem [Sterling] has also been critical in terms of goal scoring but Kane is a hugely important figure for us."

Czech Republic name an unchanged side from the one that drew 1-1 with Croatia last-time out.

That means Patrik Schick, who has scored three goals so far at Euro 2020, leads the line.

Czech Republic XI: Vaclik, Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril, Holes, Soucek, Masopust, Darida, Jankto, Schick.

Subs: Kaderabek, Brabec, Barak, Krmencik, Sevcik, Mandous, Hlozek, Vydra, Kral, Mateju, Koubek, Pekhart.


England make four changes from the side that drew with Scotland last time out.

Jack Grealish makes his first start of Euro 2020 while Harry Maguire returns from injury to take his place in the first XI. Bukayo Saka and Kyle Walker also start, but Phil Foden is not included in the squad.

As expected, Harry Kane leads the line while Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell are not in the squad because they are self isolating.

England XI: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Phillips, Rice, Saka, Grealish, Sterling, Kane.

Subs: Henderson, Rashford, Trippier, Ramsdale, Mings, Coady, Sancho, Calvert-Lewin, White, Johnstone, James, Bellingham.

After the first game I confidently stated we are best off topping our group after all on the basis that we needed to just bite the bullet of facing a Germany or a Portugal and then Spain rather than have to deal with France in the quarter final, which seemed like the obvious consequence of finishing 2nd
But now France might not top Group F, and fucking Spain are nowhere near the top of Group E

You do realise no matter how badly England lose, they're going through, right? Finland and Ukraine both failed to gain 1pt (for a total of 4 needed) to better England. So they can lose 7-0 and they still go through. Southgate will be praised for this, obviously
Brave Southgate uses his super diversity squad to earn a tough hard fought point against *adjusts papers* the mighty Scotland to secure qualification with a game to spare!

If Gareth doesn't drop Kane, Stershit, Mount, Foden etc and play some other players who are more deserving than players like Stershit instead for a meaningless game, then there is no hope for England with such a manager in charge. Not that it matters. Diversity quota in English football has ruined the entire thing here.

So its a dead rubber and Southgate can't play Mount.

Here is what we should do.

-----------------Shitford--------------
-Trippier--Stones--Mings--Shaw--
--Bellingham--Rice----Foden-----
---Sancho-----Kane----Grealish---

What we will get

-----------------Shitford----------------
-Walker--Stones--Mings--Trippier-
-----Phillips----Rice----Henderson-
----Rashford--Kane---Sterling---

Foden
No, they shouldn't be played at all. It's a dead rubber.

-----------------Shitford--------------
-Walker--White--Maguire--Shaw--
--Bellingham--Philips----Henderson-----
---Saka--------DCL----Rashford---

That way you don't risk players who are actually good. Sterling was awful against Croatia and Scotland and he nearly fucked that goal up against Croatia. Saka is infinitely more attack minded than Sterling but is never played. Southgate doesn't care it seems, it's why he took Foden off for Grealish instead of Sterling who did fuck all.

I have seen the future.

England lose 2-0 to the Czech Republic with the only shot on target in the 88th minute.

We advance and get spanked in the Round of 16, once again with only one shot on target.

The FA refuses to sack Southgate due to his 'other qualities'.

England lose to Poland and Hungary away i qualifying and don't make it to the World Cup

Raheem Sterling plays every game of this sequence.

Despite becoming Spurs bench fodder after being traded to Levy for Kane + COIN.

FA already said he won't be fired even if he flops (aka group stage exit). So this isn't a surprise. He'd have to lose multiple games 5-0 for him to even be considered being fired.

Remember when Southgate was taking England into the Euros with the 2nd highest scoring rate of any team behind Belgium (in an easier group) with like 48 goals scored and even THAT was negative defensive football but we all thought 'Oh well, we can score bucket loads even with this shit negativity' and now it has turned to... this?

By divine miracle the Scots beat Croatia and finish above >us in the group. It is the pinnacle of their footballing existence and they never fucking ever let us forget it.

In his post match interview Southgate says he is happy for Scotland.

Conceding 3 goals to Kosovo broke him, despite the fact it was a meme match that ended 5-3. Ever since we have played this absolute dirge.

Seeming to forget that in the previous run we had beaten Spain away and a half decent Croatia in actual competitive fixtures whilst playing attacking football.

Lot of hate for soufgate but do you actually think it’s his fault then when a player doesn’t try to beat his man and just turns to pass sideways or backwards that it’s his fault?

It’s not. There’s a point where it’s just down to the players on the pitch. Against Scotland those players were crippled by the fear of losing. They knew how embarrassing it’d be and for a lot of them, probably kill their international careers.

TL;DR: it’s not fifa and Southgate doesn’t literally control each players decisions and (lack of) movement

We have the players, CB and GK aside, to be much better than this.

It doesn't matter. Either way England has to play tough teams. But to answer your question, yes, they are just shit. Went from twatting teams 7-0 to not beating anybody because Southgate got spooked by conceding 3 goals in a game he won anyway.
61 Name: Anonymous 2021-06-22 19:51

Yes because at some point Southgate should be telling players to try and beat their man (Sterling tried it within 30 seconds of the game and got tackled, so never tried it again because he's shit) and not be so negative with backwards crab passing because literally every team that does that can be beaten by defending ten behind the ball and going on the counter or set pieces. Look at Spain drawing 0-0 against Sweden despite all that mean passing and possession. Look at Hungary scoring against France. England have good attackers but none of them actually attack.

Watch the Scotland game. Everybody was static. They didn't move. They just stayed in their zones and got marked accordingly. The only player that tried to attack was Foden and to a lesser extent Mount. Grealish did too when he came on for Foden... but Sterling was still on the fucking pitch when he was being lazy and shit as usual. Had Grealish come on for Sterling at 50 mins (or HT come to that) and stayed on with Foden the entire game with Mount too, with Kane dropped for DCL, then England could have done something. DCL is fantastic or set pieces, and Foden and Grealish doing runs and getting fouled (why wasn't this in tactical notes? Scotland were constantly fouling and not getting carded... so let them and go for free kicks and shit) and then whipping a ball into DCL.

He's alright but he isn't world class. England haven't had one since Seaman. His height is a major limiter in what he does. He made a world class save against Columbia which resulted in him conceding from the corner. If he was 10cm taller he could have come for it. As for him being angry, it causes situations like against VvD which is very risky for a GK.

If you somehow think Pickford being 10cm shorter and being angrier than world cup winning GK's is a positive, good for you, I disagree.

I'm not even questioning his height or temperament though, regardless hes still the best GK we have had in a long time, as you say yourself. Even if hes not the best at Everton, when playing for England he performs at his best. Pickford is a patriot and one of few players these days who isn't a robot, he shows passion and personality.

I thought we looked good in the first 20-30 minutes in both games, but then when we don’t score or we hit the post we suddenly decide to run out of ideas and play sideways passing ad infinitum.

It’s like we haven’t realised that the Spanish style pass-pass-pass-pass-pass is about 8 years out of date.

Agree Kane looked off, dunno if hes carrying an injury, distracted/depressed with transfer gossip or if its just a problem with the system in that hes not getting delivery so dropping back not getting in the box and the just too slow. Wouldn't rage if he was dropped but who would we play instead? Calvert-Lewin is the only like for like player I believe?
77 Name: Anonymous 2021-06-22 19:58

I'm not agreeing with you. I'm saying it is Southgate's fault because he hasn't sat down with the team and gone
Stop passing backwards, stop passing sideways, be active, move around, make openings, pass forward, look for the pass, play into the space
None of that happens because 'must retain possession, must wait for an opening, must pull players out of position but never do because they realise they're under no threat while we crab pass'. This isn't a case of, lets use an easy example, of Arsenal, where Arsenal clearly folllow Arteta's plan but have lost dozens of points due ot individual fuckups... or Liverpool being fucked by VAR this season. This is a case of players doing what their manager clearly wants because if it wasn't Southgate would have said it isn't what he wants and he would try to change it. But that hasn't been the case. England have won 1-0 et al because they have a better team and Southgate seems happy with that but when it comes against top teams that won't happen. Even if it did, it wouldn't do it multiple games in a row. So yes, it is Southgate's fault. Otherwise why is our 'greatest attacking generation' not fucking attacking? Why is Kane essentially in midfield for England? Why hasn't he been played with a striker like he does at Spurs?

Because Southgate is doing what he does. This is 'Put Kane taking corners' level shit. If players constantly back pass against his orders (which is what you're essentially saying here) then they should be dropped. Instead they seem to be rewarded with constant game time despite clearly being shit (Sterling, Rashford, Sancho, Henderson etc).
