I’m not just talking about this tournament though. As far back as I can remember rag players have been picked to represent their country whether or not their form deserves it, and still it continues to this day.
The fact that there will probably be a bigger selection of City players in the squad right now is neither here nor there: Southgate is a yes-man and his football is bloody awful - utter dross in fact. And if I choose to ignore his dull, safety-first style that’s my choice…petty or not.
but we finally have a manager who picks more Man City and less Man U/Liverpool players than ever before and you can't be arsed with this England
what many people forget is that International football is pretty dross, i've watched Brazil with all there star names and flair play some dreadful football at time, so many just watch England and think we're dull because they do not watch other international teams play, tournaments are tight affairs, lesser teams tend to sit back and defend for their lives and if we only win 1/2-0 everyone still sulks.
