  1. He’s a great player but exemplifies what I feel is a common English attitude of picking hard-working model pros over anyone with a hint of maverick about them. Talent-wise he’s not close to Foden and Grealish, who have proven to be consistent club players also, so there’s no good reason he should occupy the attacking mid role over them. Furthermore, he seems to be impossible to sub let alone drop/rotate, much like Sterling and Rice, despite not justifying that at all with his performances. Almost forget with Southgate that we have 26 players.
  2. He's not brilliant but I think he's decent. Certainly a solid Premier League midfielder that is way ahead of lower Championship standard. Same with Fraser also though we've not really seen much from him. Tierney is back for this match apparently. You'd think a couple of class left-backs shouldn't really change the outcome much though.
  3. Tierney and McTominay also and I think that's a bit harsh on the manager tbh. Aside from that though I agree they are trash and we should really thump them.

    COVID-19

    I get that but in the interest of balance it's probably not that simple. As rare as it is, if someone has a close relative that potentially died as a result of taking the vaccine, they might think differently to the majority, despite the stats clearly showing taking the vaccine is a good thing.

    Not great management though to be fair.

    COVID-19

    Binning the amber list is ridiculous. Not sure on the current procedures but I don't see why they can't just ask for evidence if someone wants to travel for essential reasons (e.g. family). Giving people the choice of not seeing family or having to pay for a hotel they may be unable to afford is not fair, but many still think it's acceptable to ignore problems that don't involve catching covid.

    COVID-19

    I am in favour of holding back the easing, but it's definitely hurting some people whose jobs and plans are affected by it.

    COVID-19

    Don’t know the requirements but you shouldn’t need to wear a mask outdoors in a 25% full stadium. I really can’t see taking a mask off there making a big difference. Otherwise we should be asked to wear them anywhere in public. Extending for four weeks makes sense to me, especially with schools closed in August. Once all the adults have been vaccinated at least once I’m not sure we can afford the restrictions any longer, but as ever the main thing for me is we aren’t going backwards. I feel then the sorts of people who would want more restrictions are quite often the types who aren’t

    Think Will Young had better leave right now.

    COVID-19

    I got that as well, as did my housemate and we have heard nothing else from anyone we know testing positive. It would have been Saturday for me, when I barely spent any of it indoors and mostly just saw my cricket team mates who are all playing this weekend, so must have just sat near someone on the bus or something. I’m taking it easy for now but if I keep testing negative (no symptoms, had the vaccine, negative today), it just seems a waste to cancel all my plans for the football on Sunday when clearly not a risk. Guess my situation is no big deal, but many other people now can’t afford to k

    Bairstow has had his red ball chances so should focus on being one of the best white ball players in the world for a few more years. Buttler played T20 yesterday though so that’s a bit weird…

    As a Kent supporter it pains me to say Crawley is a walking wicket right now. Can't forge a test career on the back of one double-ton. Burns in cracking form at least.

    COVID-19

    Long covid is without doubt an issue but it wouldn’t warrant staying in lockdown for. The purpose was to protect the NHS and once the risk of it being overwhelmed is severely mitigated, I think the cons of lockdown would strongly outweigh the pros. 100% agree on locking down too late, but not coming out too fast. I think we should delay June 21st a few weeks but it’s definitely right we can have some form of normality now after the last year and challenges we’ve faced through lockdown. Pretty sure with the high immunity, so many would stop obeying the laws anyway. Lockdowns

    COVID-19

    I agree here. It’s meant to be impartial and deemed in our best interests but the headlines don’t help there. It’s pretty unclear what a ‘third wave’ could involve as the first and second waves were devastating, but you’d hope with the vaccine this wouldn’t be anything near. People could feel very anxious just reading the headline though.
  15. Interesting. Maybe we played for the same club 👀
