    That’s the Sterling I remember from Liverpool

    Struggle to believe it’s the same player at times

    He would be on the elite level if his decision making wasn’t so awful 7 times out of 10. Just needs to make his mind up and go for it.

    I’m desperate for us to play Trent in midfield but I’m not sure Southgate has the balls to do it

    Deflation when Rashford came on for Sancho, what a horrendous downgrade.

    And here he is, the biggest clown on the forum

    Are you saying Rashford is an upgrade on Sancho or anywhere near? Do one.

    Didn’t Löw get criticised for playing Lahm and Kimmich in midfield? Definitely similar players to Trent.

    When did I say that? It’s the 82nd minute and your acting like bringing Rashford on is a bad decision, I will happily admit Sancho is better...

    What sort of midfielder is TAA? I know it’s supposedly his best position but I’ve literally not a clue what his role is.

    You’re really on a role today. Where did he even half suggest Rashford as an upgrade on Sancho. Fk me

    This but RB is difficult choice

    I'd change RB depending on the opposition. Against easier opposition play TAA, against the bigger teams play AWB.

    Could maybe work as a DLP?

    Reason i picked Trent was because I also had him boxed in with Gomez and Hendo who know Trents game perfectly and they quite often play those exact positions for Liverpool.

    Trent isn’t even that bad a defender anymore. (AWB is a lot better I’m not suggestion otherwise) he’s got exposed a couple times this season for us but that’s simply down to Klopp insisting on the high line.

    If we had better CB’s I’d go Trent but we don’t so need more defensive stability but I’m not entirely convinced be AWB. Scarily at this point I can’t rule out Trippier.

    Rice
    Trent - Winks

    Would be ideal playing styles but Trent and Winks would be a tiny pairing.

    Have England given up of the 3 Atb?

    Trent - Walker - Maguire - Gomez - Chilwell
    Hendo - Rice
    Sancho - Kane - Sterling

    Looks pretty decent on paper

    If it were up to you they’d play

    AWB

    Rice - Hendo
    Winks - Ox
    Mount
    Sancho - Kane - Wickham - Sterling

    Terrible the sooner we play "Top" opposition and get exposed the better,then maybe he'll change it all up

    Yes we have. That used to be our starting formation but now Southgate favours the 433 and we've played it every game for a while now.

    all 3 goals tonight came from an individual error. Or more, panicking after an error

    I think obvious weak links are Maguire/Keane/Henderson/Pickford.

    The most important diamond of the side is very weak. Until that changes I don't think conceding goals for fun will change.

    Tbh we haven't really got anyone else good enough to replace those players
