    Probably an unpopular opinion: Trent and Chilwell would be the best fullback duo at the Euros. Their set piece abilities are just the icing on the cake.

    They're the obvious choices

    I was talking out of all European nations :sweat_smile:

    Oh, I see :D. Well it seems some here can't even work out they're our best full backs. Not sure if they'd be the best at the Euros, it's probably close between us, Portugal and Spain

    IDK if Alba still starts for Spain, but Roberto is average and Guerreiro doesn’t even start for BVB. You’ve literally got Ricardo, Semedo and Cancelo as the only decent options. I’d quite happily play one of the first two at RB and then Cancelo on the left.

    Tomori is our best centre back imo. It should be him and Maguire.

    We need a CB pairing that works, depending on how much game time Gomez gets it should be: Gomez and Tomori.

    Maguire and Stones have been ****

    Maguire-Gomez

    If he gets enough game time.

    If not

    Maguire-Tomori


    Fam, I’m sure you watched the match last night...

    Maguire is garbage

    Guerreiro has been playing regularly recently tbf. Don't rate Portugal and Spain that highly either, the ones that could come close are Kimmich and Halstenberg imo, but Kimmich plays in midfield for Germany.

    Sure, Guerreiro’s been playing more regularly lately, but he’s still complete and utter ****. He’s basically our Dumfries :lol:

    No one touches Chillwell/TAA imo. It’d be a challenge to find any fullback better than either of them, never mind a partnership.

    Moving away from the first choice pair, Shaw's injuries have wrecked his ability to find some form for a while but if he can stay fit he has to be in the squad over Rose.

    Not much of an accomplishment but yeah definitely, Rose is abysmal, I don’t know if James/AWB have the ability to switch sides but if they did I’d take them over Rose.

    Would take Ashley Young over Rose, at least when he mis-hits the ball it sometimes finds its target.

    I would take literally anyone over Rose, even Alonso. If he was English.

    Mail reporting that Gomez and Sterling had to be separated once again after jokes were made about yesterday’s result at training.

    I’m sure it won’t, but measures need to be taken to ensure that this doesn’t become a regular occurrence and that cliques don’t start to form as they did during the 2000s. Because now it’s not just United, Liverpool and Chelsea but Spurs, City and Leicester (not so much Arsenal) that make up the bulk of your squad. I suppose that the more teams in the mix that you have, the less likely the chances of division are, but still. Just something to think about, because now you’ve got City and Liverpool pretty much still on level pegging with one another and the rest of the sides competing for top four.

    Sterling probably got butt-hurt again. He was pathetic during the game at Anfield, starting on TAA, Gomez and Henderson.

    Sounds like Sterling started it. Pathetic.

    Sterling must have been in the wrong for England to drop him over Gomez

    From the telegraph:

    Sterling and Gomez clashed at the end of Liverpool’s victory over Manchester City, but had appeared to make peace by later embracing.

    But Gomez was astonished when Sterling arrived at St George’s Park to meet up for England duty and immediately laid into him again and, according to witnesses, allegedly attempted to provoke a physical confrontation.

    It is believed Sterling aimed jibes at Gomez, asking if he still thought he was the “big man” and got into the 22-year-old’s face looking for a reaction.

    Some of those present were impressed with the way Gomez handled the situation by refusing to be goaded into retaliating physically and instead taking a step back.

    Not sure what Sterling’s issue with Henderson and Gomez was, but he had a legitimate problem with TAA. TAA clearly pushed him into the boards after Sterling was already out of bounds. It was completely unnecessary and United’s Williams is guilty of the same behavior. Refs need to start addressing the issue by booking the guilty players before someone is seriously hurt.

    Odd by Sterling. Wonder if something else was said.

    On a separate note, I really think Gomez has no right being in this England squad. Has barely played since the last set of internationals, and wasnt convincing when I saw him.

    Must suck for CBs like Mee, Tarkowski, Dunk or the sheffield united CBs to know no matter what they wont get the call up over him or Keane for that matter.

    I've got to agree with this tbh

    Especially at Old Trafford, it's a slope off the pitch and can seriously injure somebody. Should be considered an off the ball foul

    Bit off topic but have you stood on the Old Trafford pitch? The slope really is crazy!

    Not actually stood on the pitch itself but seen it up close on the stadium tour.

    Feels like a safety hazard on TV and its even worse in person. I'm surprised people don't get injured more often.

    We actually got to stand on the pitch when we did the stadium tour. It’s actually mad isn’t it?

    You’re right you’d have expected it could have caused some injuries.

    Completely agree with this, it’s something you see constantly, and really should go under the same bracket as Diving, it’s just unsportsmanlike behaviour, debateably worse than diving, because as mentioned it’s only a matter of time till it seriously hurts someone

    Sterling needs to come back down to earth. Can't he cope the pressure or what's wrong with that guy?

    FFS Sterling. The right decision to drop him, had to be done.
