he is our best though
When I think that Portugal have Ronaldo & Fernandes, France have Mbappe, it is sobering.

Also Belgium are strong & can't ignore Holland.

Delusional Man UTd fans - why would you play Rashford as a striker when he specifically said he prefers playing out wide ffs

I expect us to win the Euros. Semi-Finals and Finals at Wembley mean only one thing..

I'd say by 2021, our best starting 11 for the big games will be:

Pickford
TAA Gomez Maguire Keane Chilwell


Winks Henderson (C)
Sancho Kane Sterling
Surely have to be looking at Foden by summer 2021?

I don't rate him tbh (probably wrong). The guy plays with world class players - it's not hard to get a goal or assist.

We also don't play with a number 10 and think of all the attacking midfield options we have we could pick any of these guys:

- Dele Alli
- Mason Mount
- Ross Barkley
- Jack Grealish
- Phil Foden
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
- James Ward-Prowse

All of those front 3 can, and have, play centrally.

Kane's metrics and stats have all declined over the last couple of years. He's taking fewer touches in the opposition boxes, taking less shots and scoring less. He doesn't have the pace or mobility so you have to adapt your entire team around him to try and get the best out of him.

The England squad isnt blessed like in the past so they need to make the most of out the entire squad they have, not just focus on one player.
If Harry Kane wasn't England's golden boy there would be serious questions over his place in the team right now.

Will The Sancho Effect work internationally?

I think so, unless they can find one player to stop him receiving the ball.

Can we reasonably expect England to get to the semi-finals?
Has anything qualitatively changed since the previous 50 years (summary here)
I don't expect anything to England, whenever I did I got dissappointed.

Never so far. Just one World Cup in 1966 that's it in England's display case!

I fancy us to get to at least the quarter final stage.

If we don’t get to the quarters I will kill myself - I expect Semi Finals minimum

I think that could be a tad optimistic.

It’s the Euros though - not the World Cup, we got to the Semis in the World Cup and our squad is much better than now.

Look at our options;
GK - Pickford, Henderson, Pope, McCarthy etc
RB- TAA, Trippier, AWB, Walker (not even going to mention all those youngsters we have)
LB - Chilwell, Rose, Shaw
CB - Maguire, Gomez, Stones, Tarkowski, Mings, Tomoroi, Keane...
CDM / CM- Hendo, Rice, Dier, Winks, Saka
CAMs - Ali, Maddison, Mount, Ward-Prowse, Grealish, Foden
RW / LW - Sterling, Rashford, Sancho, Greenwood
ST - Kane, Ings, Abraham, Wilson etc

The squad is potentially better, but they have got to gel together as a team.

It’s similar to the 2018 team, the geezer’s have more experience, but it’s pretty much the same.
I’ll say it now - all you man put a £20 bet and you’ll get £90.
The betting odds make us favourites - Belgium’s squad is old, only team who can beat us is France, so hopefully we’re not in the same of the bracket as them, but once we get to the Semis, Wembley will be the difference.

We’re favourites to win the Euros - if we don’t get to the semis I’ll be so shocked I’ll kill myself.
There’s only 1 European team better than us - France. We’re better than the rest.
