Hopefully tomorrows game he will pick a side to go out and attack and entertain rather than sitting back and containing the opposition.

I'm not sure he will. We only need a point to go through.

If we wake up I reckon it won't be until the knockout stages (assuming we get there)

My take is that history always repeats itself with England.

The media gets carried away and we look arrogant as a nation (i predicted a draw v the Jocks).
The expectation is far too high (We got a win and a draw....Wales were made out to be super heroes with the same points!)
The squad looks good and IS a good one...but over coached with emphasis on 'keeping the ball', so it ends up looking like the Town under Williams.
England Manager starts his tenure well but then falls into the old trap of not being brave and ruthless when it comes to form and injured players. Kane, who was wank for two games will still get picked and we take crocks in the squad on the basis they might get fit and suddenly come back on fire.

We do it time and time again....

...and a huge bugbear of mine, all the qualifying is so heavily seeded that there are no competitive games at all.

We are technically good enough to play football like the top nations.
We arenít gritty enough to play like the lower nations.

We are footballing Inbetweeners - who try and play football like the big boy who we canít out play but we canít outfight them either.

A bit like Tottenham, promise a lot, have some good wins and have finished top many years ago and get into the top 4 often but almost always fade away when the pressure is on.

Someone pointed out on Twitter, the England Scotland game was possibly how the PL would be without any foreign players.

I don't think so. It was down to tactics more than anything.

It would be right after theyíd booted the foreign players out
But - after a while Iíd suggest a lot of those players would be better off without foreign players in the Premier League as they might get more game time?

Also. Still not enough English players going abroad. We have two in this squad currently - which is more than I can remember for a very long time. Early 90s maybe.

Beckham and Hargreaves were in the 2004 and 2006 squads while playing abroad.

Mount and Chilwell also isolating after coming in to contact with Gilmour

Surely, all the England players came into contact with him.

The identity of the two suggests the Chelsea players went for a drink afterwards perhaps, or maybe just went into the Scotland dressing room to congratulate him. Clearly on the pitch isn't considered close contact, maybe not even the dressing room considering no Scots seem to be.
