Surprised there's not already a thread. I agree with most that it's a bit of a nonsense this time round with the timings, Qatar, etc, but trying to get myself in the zone...

I look forward to some rose tinted selections!

1) What is your (not Southgate's) 26 man squad
2) What is our best 11?
3) What will our results be?
4) Who do you tip to go far?


1) My 26:
GK: Pickford, Ramsdale, Pope

DEF: Trippier, Trent AA, Walker, Stones, Dier, White, Ghehi, Shaw, Sessegnon.

MID: Rice, Henderson, Bellingham, Grealish, Mount, Saka, Maddison, Foden, Eze.

FOR: Kane, Sterling, Rashford, Tony, Abraham

Notable absentees:
- Harry Maguire: Confidence shot and is now a liability/time bomb.
- Kalvin Phillips: No match fitness, a World Cup is not the time to get sharp.
- Jadon Sancho: Not setting the world alight and behind the likes of Saka, Foden, Mount etc

Comments:
- Defensively we're buggered. I would risk taking an injured Kyle Walker as he's such a key player.
- Ward-Prowse will get in over Eze.

2) Best 11:

-------------Pickford-------------
Trent---Walker---Stones---Dier---Shaw
---------Rice------Bellingham-------
Foden----------Kane-----------Grealish

3) Results:
England 2 - 0 Iran
England 1 - 1 Wales
England 1 - 0 USA

Lacklustre but will grind out results to advance from an easy group. Lineker will be wetting his pants over 7 points.

R2: England 2 - 1 Ecuador
QF: England 0 - 2 Argentina

4) Tip to go far:
- I have France down as winners as they have too much firepower with Mbappe and Benzema. My outsiders to go far are The Netherlands and Denmark.

The overall performance will reflect the pre-tournament hype. Southgate sacked with no obvious replacement.

Is anybody really interested in it ?

To me it’s just an unwanted interruption to the season….

England progressed beyond the group stage in the two World Cups played in the 1980s.

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)

I'm expecting Southgate to name at least one player who is currently injured possibly 2.

It seems to be in the job description for England manager, take a player who is injured thus depriving a fit player of a place. Said player will then either break down or not be match fit and so wont do anything.

See Keegan / Beckham / Robson etc. etc.

The annoying thing is that this time it wont even be a so called talisman.

We never learn.

Agreed I only realised this week Wales and the USA were in our group. I have never been so uninterested in a WC.

Click-bait saying Guehi out of WC & that Walker & White are in . . . [Link]

The Athletic backs this up & its looking like same old, same old for the 26 man squad . . . zzzzzzz

World Cup

 



Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Of course I'll watch the World Cup but I won't be expecting much from England.

We (or rather THEY) should make the quarter finals but then they'll make their exit and be home for Christmas along with the other turkeys!
