    Agree, both teams look like scoring every time they go forward. Need to tighten up defensively or we will get punished heavily by the better teams..

    He shouldn't be in the England squad. If he was at arguably any team other than United he would be nowhere near. Only gets a sniff because of how poor united are.

    Care to revisit this?

    Finally the penny has dropped. Southgate doesn't deem him good enough.

    Thank god Southgate looking elsewhere.

    Sterling and Sancho streets ahead of him. Rashford is another wide option. Plus Hudson-Odoi is back playing. Mount, Maddison, etc ahead of him in AM role too.

    Lingard down the pecking order and rightly so.

    Did Jared Bowen get selected in his place?

    I'd say we were both wrong but Bowen isn't even playing PL football yet, never mind getting close to matching Lingards number of caps so what's your point?

    There's no joke, you really did say Jarred Bowen was a better pick for England than Lingard :poop::poop::joy::joy:

    Yep. One has proven time and time again how poor he is. The fact id have a Championship player over him says it all on how bad I think he is.

    I never said Bowen should get a call up though. There are plenty ahead of him too, thats what was lost on you. His time could come eventually though.

    Bowen will be in the PL next term. A fine Championship player (with 22 goals last term) just like Abraham, Mount and others before him in the England squad.

    The fact is Lingard is no longer in the squad. I was right he should lose his place. Playing for a big club shouldn't warrant a call up. Sad you think so. Typical sky sports football fan.

    Plenty of players ahead of Bowen yet you couldn't give another example as an alternative for Lingard? Until now of course when they've already been selected.

    Hindsight eh? It's a beautiful thing.

    How poor and shaky do England look so far tonight in the Czech Republic. Defensively they look a shambles and the midfield being overrun. This after taking a lead in the 5th minute too

    I have seen milk turn faster than England tonight. They are so pedestrian, no intensity whatsover. Turgid stuff tonight so far

    That was Sunday league defending, but your correct over the 90 minutes CZE were the better team.

    They have been very poor at the back all night. Didnt see the Kosovo game as away on holiday, but conceding 5 in 2 games against Kosovo and Czech Rep is a big concern

    Can not believe it was a decade since England last lost a qualifier

    And that's the warning for City tomorrow, being the better team on paper doesn't count for much if you don't put in the hard work.
