    Southgate has a run of four games to make his mark.

    Start with Malta at home, Sturridge up front, Lingard making his debut, Rooney deep next to Henderson (well, that's where he is on the team sheet, at least...).

    Mate was saying he saw us getting a lot of goals from this one. Not convinced, though I hadn't realised Malta are quite so low in the rankings.

    Should be an easy England rout but I feel Malta will be a banana skin like team, cause some problems. Anything less than 3-0 and England shouldn't celebrate

    Malta's national anthem sounds like the soundtrack to a trailer of an Oscar-nominated film.

    Elsewhere in qualifying news, Faroe Islands currently sit above European champions Portugal in their group, after the perennial whipping boys won 2-0 away at Latvia :cool:

    Rooney hit that one well enough, good save from the 'keeper.

    England a bit predictable with their passing.

    Sorry, are England actually playing at the moment . . . without a manager?

    This won't end well

    "England have a break through with under half an hour played"

    Yes, we've done very well to take such an early lead.. :hmm:

    "Strikers should be selfish".

    No, strikers should help the team score goals, and if that means passing to a teammate then that's what you should do.

    Yes Daniel, I'm talking to you.

    Quick reminder that this match is still on.

    In case you had it on in the background and had forgotten...

    souljacker and this is fresh

    Lacked ideas, lacked ability and lacked any real impetus. The Rooney in the middle thing is not working and he is still taking corners.

    Awful.

    Lingard seems alright though.
     
  19. that was a bit shit.

    so nailed on for glory in 2018 then

    Well, I think we can all agree that that event just happened.

    We turned over to watch Strictly before the end and I wasn't even bothered.

    Was surprised Southgate actually had the balls to drop Rooney - he adds absolutely nothing that couldn't be done better by several other English players in any position he fancies playing in. If he was serious about wanting to help England and Man Utd he'd make an effort to get in shape and accept the fact he's no longer first choice but he might be able to offer something off the bench, up front obviously not in midfield. Am actually looking forward to seeing how England play without him tomorrow, although it is inevitable he will come off the bench on 80 minutes and score the winner

    This is embarrassing. We should easily beat a Mickey Mouse team like this.
    I'm ashamed to be Slovenian...

    Every pass that's come in to him tonight seems to be just behind him or when he's being closely marked. In fact that's happening all over the pitch.

    I'm losing fucking count here. Should be 3 at least, possibly 5.

    This is reminding me quite a lot of West ham. They look nervous.

    It's alright everybody! Andros Townsend is on.

    If Michail Antonio was playing we'd be 3 up by now and 6 Slovenian players would be dead.
