Huh? What have Ajax got to do with it?Loftus Cheek and Hudson-Odoi are 'enfprced' big misses but looks as expected with the exception of Redmond.
Southgate has made average players fit his playing style before, this is a new and refreshing era - it'll be an absolutely massive step for us to win this and going by how open Ajax are we have every chance.
Declan Rice has a strong claim to holding mid imo, Ali would be in for me after returning to form in the second leg - see how he does in the CL finalWhat's your starting XI out of that pile of shite?
PickfordWould've went with Walker over TAA, but he's been absolute turd in recent weeks. Appreciate people will laugh at Barkey over Alli, but he offers more in the AM role, IMO.
Arnold - Stones - Maguire - Chilwell
Dier - - - Henderson
Sterling - - - Kane - - - Sancho
Interested to see this Sancho in the flesh as well. Heard good things.
All in all, that squad won't do anything special. Pickford and Kane aside, I don't think there's a good amount of 'real' quality. Henderson comes alive for Southgate, but I've never rated him and he falls short of the 'excellent' bracket for me. Dier is dire - but who else is there?
Wijnaldum, too.If the Chelsea pair hadn't been injured England could have had up to twelve players, as it is we have ten, in the EUFA club finals with the Dutch only having VvD, that's a huge advantage for them as a consequence of how successful English teams have been in European competition this season.
Yes and unfortunately that could be the decisive factor, heavily punished by our own successWhoever is involved in the champions league final almost certainly shouldn't be involved in the 1st match.
Win or lose, they'll be mentally shattered. Win and they'll be drunk for days, too. These players will not be giving the 'UEFA nations league' a 2nd thought.
I am is his biggest fan and I agree with you! WTF has Delph done?I'm not even his biggest fan but it's laughable that Alli, Barkley, Redmond, Lingard and Delph are in ANY squad before James Maddison, based on the seasons form.
There's no doubt in my mind Barkley is a better play than Maddison but if he's not getting the minutes, why should he be picked? He wasn't whilst an Everton player and our 2nd best player at that.
