Germany or Spain in the last 16 - all over for England after next weekend.

Southgate sets up with 2 holding midfielders sitting in front of the centre backs, essentially 4 central defenders, whether we are playing Scotland or France. Just like Hodgson sets up for Man City or WBA with the same formation.

Grealish on the bench, brings him on, takes Foden off, when England needs a goal. No plan B,just like Roy

Trippier playing out of position at left back. Just like Roy.

Same approach as the Hodgesaurus. Happy not to lose, very happy to nick a scrappy goal and win 1-0. Wastes the talent available to him.

Southgate ideally suited for management at the club he captained. No compensation fee, and comes across well at interview. Sadly, just a bit pants.

Trust me, this has got Palace written all over it.

If it is Spain, I confidently predict England will win.

Also, not sure how you could call him a mediocre player considering he played for his country!

He was a brilliant player for us. With that statement you canít have watched Palace when he was here.

This is never going to happen (well not yet) but would great for us - excellent with youngsters and would work superbly with Parish.

 


The Queen supports Crystal Palace. Perhaps she'll buy the club then legitimately all the money in England shall be ours. Plus all the swans.

Last night we were tactically inept in trying to break down a 5 mam defence and that is a major managerial concern. A No from me.

 


Bring back Brolin

I personally would make judgements over a whole tenure not just the last game.

Credit where it's due though, he didn't let Harry take the corners....

OK - this is an opinion forum, but I don't think many will be with you on this.
Gareth was a great player for us over many years. He was certainly not mediocre, far from it. I must have been watching a different team in the early 90's to the one you were.
Manager? He has generally done well. The game last night was pitiful due to the characterless bunch of players. Kane was poor and he should have replaced him with Calvert-Lewin a lot earlier IMO.

 


Following Palace since 25 Feb 1978

Quite a good player, dreadful club manager, hope remains that he's a better international manager. Doubtful.

 


If you want to live in a world full of kindness, respect and love, try to show these qualities.

Carlton palmer , Tyrone mings ,plus many others.
Being mediocre doesn't stop you getting England caps.

To Southgate's credit he had the courage to bring the young players through and I think that earned a lot of credit for him with the squad.

But giving the youth their chance only takes you so far. Those players are now established so Southgate tactics are rightly being questioned (possibly even by the players).

I think his legacy will be more about establishing the conveyor belt from U21 football that actual success.
