Pleased with England today
at 00:46 17 Jun 2016

We showed good resolve to come back and win the game so fair play to the players. However, everyone knows Wales play 3-5-2, with 3 centre halves, so the idea of playing Kane as a lone striker made no sense at all. I like Kane, but he's not the quickest across the grass and it was a hard game for him, he was taken out the game.

Lallana and Sterling had a tough task because the Welsh full backs just had to show them inside where the Welsh midfield were or show them down the line where they cross into an empty box.

The switch made sense, Rose and Walker provided the width and let Gunter and Taylor worry about them and not the other way round. Vardy and Sturridge pressurised their 3 and that allowed them to lose the ball quickly meaning we could all push up and attack constantly and pen them in.

Bale at this point is on his own trying to be an outlet but is starved of service and Ramsey is having to put in a shift defensively.

The changes at half time were right and I salute Roy and Nev for having the bravery to stick on young Rashford who caused a few problems. Well done to all but the 4-5-1 4-3-3 4-2-3-1 or whatever you want to call it was illogical in the first place.

If we get through and face a big hitter then we cant be tactically naïve anymore, we have to get it right from the start or we could find ourselves having a mountain to climb by half-time.

I'm not moaning, just reflecting on the game, we have to be smarter.

I know I haven't put this across too clearly. But basically Dier can watch Bale and between Henderson and Wilshere Ramsey can get snuffed out.

Allow their central 3 to have the ball and Alli can find space when we get the ball.

Vardy and Sturridge would really threaten them with their pace and can find the gaps in between their centre halves and full backs and press their defence when in possession.

Going 4-2-3-1 like the other night means our central midfield two wont have protection and Ramsey and Bale can find pockets in behind. Whilst Gunter and Taylor will have space to run into. Also we would have one striker against 3 centre-halves and so that player could end up chasing shadows.

Anyone who entered my sun dream team....

You have 3 emergency transfers available throughout the group stages, so you can ditch up to 3 players who you regret putting in your team. Just thought it was worth reminding people.

I've got a feeling someone unexpected will win the euros ...
at 20:32 9 Jun 2016

Germany- No real strikers, well Gomez but he's not amazing

Spain- Not quite the force they were say, 5 years ago. Struggling a bit for genuine class strikers. No Xavi and not sure how influential Iniesta is for them now.

France- Very useful squad on paper but being a home national brings a pressure, will they gel?

Italy- Always hard to beat but no Pirlo and have Pelle up front who is decent but not exactly a world-beater.

I can see a Croatia, Poland, Switzerland or someone causing an upset from left-field.

Boro v Brighton on my accumalator...
at 00:50 7 May 2016

Me and my brother do an accumulator together some weeks and we've just put down our 7 fold for the weekend. I put Brighton to beat Middlesbrough and he looked at me less than impressed.

Houghton is a wily old manager and I think they'll frustrate Boro' then nick it, with Karanka leaving soon after following the result.

Wondered what you lot think, am I alone on this one?
