"England struggle to draw against Scotland" 21:42 - Jun 18 with 1451 viewsfooters

And some people wonder why we don't back the national side?

So fcking boring. Even if we have the attacking iniative we pass it backwards.

Absolutely awful.

This is why the first win was so important.

We'd have settled for a point there and 3 here.

But yes, massively underperformed tonight.

It’s been an utter snoozefest. No high tempo. As you say it goes backwards when in a decent position. When you look at the likes of Portugal or France, who are fabulous to watch, we are just so drab and boring.

At least that's what she told me.

I thought it was quite an exciting match for a 0-0...but then I was watching on STV...

Cowardly performance. Started bright but too many players watching and waiting for someone else to do something.

Needed to change that midfield around in the 2nd half and get Sancho on for Sterling.

Scotland did very well but were never put under real pressure.

Apart from the John Stones header that hit the post in the first half, the goalmouth melee at the death...

England were about as predictable as you donvoting Royrry's post regardless of content. But maybe that's why you like them.

Not really a cowardly performance by England in my opinion, they were going for it but Steve Clarke got his tactics right. And I think the Stephen O'Donnell shot that got deflected at the last gasp was a pretty sure sign that Scotland put the pressure on.

Yeah enjoyed watching the game with the boy.

Assume from the rest of your post you’ve put away a bit more than you can handle. Get yourself to bed.

You should have told her you were a lesbian too.

We have no village green, or a shop. It's very, very quiet. I can walk to the pub.

Those were bright spots in a depressingly meek performance. We're capable of ripping through teams at pace but we didn't try to do that for huge portions of the game. You can't just dwell on the ball and go through the motions and expect to amble the ball in.

What really stung for me was that final minute of added time where we're around the box but don't do anything with it. 10 seconds to go, just take a shot.

It’s becoming endemic. Football by numbers - probe, lines get cut off, pass back and recycle, switching play to half heartedly look for an overload on one side, lines cut off, pass back and recycle. Repeat ad infinity. So many teams do it. I wonder if it’s a result of the formalisation of training; I bet there’s a coaching manual out there and everyone’s been following that same one.

It’s a breath of fresh air now when teams try to play differently and take a few risks.

Well there wasn’t a lot of bravery on show. I didn’t say Scotland didn’t put pressure on.

True, I got confused by the question mark and though I had read your last sentence wrong so replied to it a second time as if you were complaining that Scotland didn't press England.

Brutal performance from England. Scotland much better and deserved a 1-0 win. Southgate is not the man.

Agree. The current way of playing football by many sides is monotonous and dull.
