Just watched the U 21's game and apart from the early couple of chances it began to remind me of the Town from a few seasons ago. Play slowly out from the back get so far up the pitch, find the opposition have regrouped so then go backwards again. It is the style of play that Southgate is fond of and has all the England teams playing to this method which is understandable, but just like the seniors Netherlands game saw quite a few balls given to the French by dwelling too long to make a pass, being tackled and losing the ball. I do not want to see 1000 mile an hour football but like to see the game played with some pace and did not witness much of that tonight. I want the U 21's to do well but they could be up against it now.

I didn't see it quite like that, thought we mixed it up quite well with odd long balls in behind the French which caused them problems.... let down by a lack of composure from the front men.  Same could be said of France to some extent. Interesting to see Foden and Maddison together as if GS is to solve the midfield creativity problem then these are the candidates.

Playing quite well, not taking chances, but still getting a lead only to lose it late on is becoming a thing for both the U 21's and full team.... and highly annoying.

Poor old Wan Bissaka had a mare... I guess he might have things on his mind.

If Wan Bissaka is apparently worth 50 million what is Alexander-Arnold worth considering he is both younger and already an established player plus a bit better!

I guess it is indicative of the times in relation to how players become so over-hyped so quickly. Sancho for example undoubtably has talent but the furore over him after one season in the Bundesliga is quick frankly laughable

Yeah, but Alexander Arnold isn't a Jedi is he?

This talk of Wan Bissaka leaving this summer makes me wonder if they'd be in for Bogle?

If Griezmann to Barca is a done deal which seems to be the general consensus I don't think Barca have anything to benefit in buying Neymar back, he has proven himself to be a pain in the arse and has a very limited market with the cash to buy him.

Hopefully Wimbledon simply refer to all opposition as the Away Team or something, to avoid using Franchise.

Very few neutrals have any empathy with MKD, but AFC supporters really are up themselves.  In the bar in the ground I've had a number of their fans tell me that they're everyone's favourite second club. 

Really?  Everyone's?

No idea whether that sense of unchallengeable moral superiority extends to the club officials but wouldn't be surprised.

I have heard some Wimleydons fans saying that too and they meant it.

Don't get me wrong, MK are my 2nd least favourite club after the Pox and slightly ahead of Rovers and City but to say they are everyones 2nd fave teams is a bit ridiculous.

There is a bit of a sense of self importance about them which could well go to the very top of the club and not just fans.

Sheffield Wednesday made a 35m loss last season so to circumvent FFP sold stadium to another Chansiri company at a 38m profit
