    The thing is doing that against such poor opposition is different to doing it in the big games.

    Exactly my point on England,people get carried away when we hammer Poor teams and completely forget England are a completely different team in tournament pressure football,the same players that play great in qualifiers go missing under pressure always have always will ;)

    Yeah the mentality is quite poor. I don’t feel comfortable with any of our players in high pressure games apart from the city/Liverpool players and players who play in different leagues like Sancho.

    The united and spurs players are just abysmal in high pressure moments and the ones from smaller teams aren’t used to it.

    This doesn’t really make much sense. Let’s look at last nights team

    Pickford - we’ve got a problem in this position

    TAA - you’re happy because he’s a Liverpool player

    Keane - clearly only playing due to lack of game time for Gomez

    Maguire - can’t say he buckles under pressure because he’s a Utd player - he’s only played a few games.

    Chilwell - doesn’t fit any of your categories - decent prospect, no evidence of poor mentality

    Rice - if you can’t see this guy is class then you don’t know football - again no evidence of poor mentality

    Henderson - Liverpool

    Barkley - actually thought he did ok in the last couple of matches. Unlikely to retain place in long run

    Sterling - City

    Sancho - you haven’t got a problem with

    Kane - scores goals for fun even when playing poorly. Proven against top opposition.

    So where’s this poor mentality? Or are you just basing it on previous teams, which obviously would be ridiculous?

    I mean it should be obvious, Kane has won nothing, he doesn’t have the right mentality.

    Ok, would you like to put some context on that because at the moment I’m struggling to see where you’re coming from.

    Kane and Kane's club team bottle everything when they get so very close, he's bringing that mentality to the England setup. Eg not crossing the ball in the semi final.

    So we’re going to base it on one decision right?

    And what have Spurs bottled in terms of winning? Please do tell because I’m struggling here.

    Came 3rd in a two horse race, completely bottled that "title challenge". In general whenever they come close to something they tend to fail. Until Kane wins something of note i don't think that'll change.

    There’s a difference between bottling and losing.

    At best that two horse race year they were what 4 point behind with 8 games left or something.

    Lost Champo last year but as you know that was down to luck. So can’t blame Kane.

    That’s literally it

    Time will tell, just don't think the mentality in some players will ever be right. And in general because most of them play for the top teams and play against each other weekly there will naturally be a subconscious block. Its happened for years.

    About time Arsenal get rid of Laca and Pepe then.

    What’s Auba won? Genuine question

    Talking about England players dude. No need to bring Arsenal players, especially ones that have been here for the shortest period of time, into the conversation.

    In general it’s frowned upon to tar a group of individuals with the same brush based on their nationality.

    The thing is doing that against such poor opposition is different to doing it in the big games.

    Exactly my point on England,people get carried away when we hammer Poor teams and completely forget England are a completely different team in tournament pressure football,the same players that play great in qualifiers go missing under pressure always have always will ;)

    Yeah the mentality is quite poor. I don’t feel comfortable with any of our players in high pressure games apart from the city/Liverpool players and players who play in different leagues like Sancho.

    The united and spurs players are just abysmal in high pressure moments and the ones from smaller teams aren’t used to it.

    This doesn’t really make much sense. Let’s look at last nights team

    Pickford - we’ve got a problem in this position

    TAA - you’re happy because he’s a Liverpool player

    Keane - clearly only playing due to lack of game time for Gomez

    Maguire - can’t say he buckles under pressure because he’s a Utd player - he’s only played a few games.

    Chilwell - doesn’t fit any of your categories - decent prospect, no evidence of poor mentality

    Rice - if you can’t see this guy is class then you don’t know football - again no evidence of poor mentality

    Henderson - Liverpool

    Barkley - actually thought he did ok in the last couple of matches. Unlikely to retain place in long run

    Sterling - City

    Sancho - you haven’t got a problem with

    Kane - scores goals for fun even when playing poorly. Proven against top opposition.

    So where’s this poor mentality? Or are you just basing it on previous teams, which obviously would be ridiculous?

    I mean it should be obvious, Kane has won nothing, he doesn’t have the right mentality.

    Ok, would you like to put some context on that because at the moment I’m struggling to see where you’re coming from.

    Kane and Kane's club team bottle everything when they get so very close, he's bringing that mentality to the England setup. Eg not crossing the ball in the semi final.

    So we’re going to base it on one decision right?

    And what have Spurs bottled in terms of winning? Please do tell because I’m struggling here.

    Came 3rd in a two horse race, completely bottled that "title challenge". In general whenever they come close to something they tend to fail. Until Kane wins something of note i don't think that'll change.

    There’s a difference between bottling and losing.

    At best that two horse race year they were what 4 point behind with 8 games left or something.

    Lost Champo last year but as you know that was down to luck. So can’t blame Kane.

    That’s literally it

    Time will tell, just don't think the mentality in some players will ever be right. And in general because most of them play for the top teams and play against each other weekly there will naturally be a subconscious block. Its happened for years.

    About time Arsenal get rid of Laca and Pepe then.

    What’s Auba won? Genuine question

    Talking about England players dude. No need to bring Arsenal players, especially ones that have been here for the shortest period of time, into the conversation.

    Why have people started talking about the Premier League this started about England and how people suddenly think we can Win a Trophie because we beat teams in qualifying !

    The English mentality is why foreign fans hate the English !

    I doubt that as I don't go around hyping the National team up because they do well in Qualifiers beating teams like Kosovo and such like,England fans are like Liverpool fans always thinking it's their "Year" or "Tournament" and never look at the bigger picture and see the national teams failings are the same every tournament "No character" " Little Passion" and an ultimate failure when it comes to mixing it with the big boys.

    If we are going to win anything, the front 3 will need to carry us. They are all incredible players with top mentalities.

    Which is why I dont see any reason for Southgate to mess around with it and rotate. Play all 3 together as much as possible so they can learn from each other. Its moronic to rotate, unless someone is fatigued, as it's clear that is the best chance we have.

    Internationally, its probably the most dynamic and productive front 3 in the world, Portugal and France being at a similar level.
