Well, who's job was/is it to ensure we didn't end up with no defence? I'm already sick of hearing this excuse...a good manager plans or finds a way to deal with it. Or counterbalance it by offering more attacking threat, like playing a hot winger.
Time for Southgate to make his name and be the man who calls time on Rooneys career...give the youngsters their head, move the ball quicker, and remove the old fart who slows it all down. Dier in for Rooney, Rashford in for Walcott for the next game.
