Not sure if we have an international teams page? I looked through but couldn't see, I'm interested in everyone's thoughts on the World Cup.

Been reading a post on the BBC about Southgates problem of who he picks, highlighting one part 'Davies has deplaced Rose'. As we know ed001 i believe stated poch is freezing him out because of contract talks not actual footballing ability.

So after reading this, i thought I'd rather see what everyone's thoughts are here than carry on with that article.

I think we could field a decent team, but it's a case of will they perform and I like some players like Pope but he hasn't really played internationally before, not saying he can't do the job, maybe it will take a few games to adjust though :/

So yeah, it would be great to hear people's thought and opinions, who you'd like out there on the pitch.

{Ed033's Note -


Our international football page for the World Cup.

Cheers Ed033 lad!

I think this England team is one of the weakest in a long time. We have a few really good players and the rest are ok. For me Southgate players the most boring football ever ( or we are just spoiled watching Liverpool 🤔) .
I do support England but it’s definitely lost is appeal over the last 8-12 years.


3.) 21 Mar 2018 19:13:06
Listen, are fans happier now, in 3rd place (having played an extra game) and in 1/ 4 finals of ucl or when rafa was winning us the champions league by beating teams 1 0 and defending for our lives? I can tell you, I have never been so happy as a fan as I was when we last won the champions league. People are slagging utd style but it's not totally dis similar to how we played in 2005. Trophies are what makes fans happy.

Now, in the world cup, if we got to the semi finals by playing defensive football no one would mind, but if we went out in the group stage or the first knock out round, playing attacking, flowing football (like we did with Hodgson) people would be angry and probably call Southgate irresponsible.

I think England have some real quality in our team. We have one of the world's best strikers in Harry kane, we have some exciting attacking mids in Ali, aoc and lallana. We have some very decent full backs in rose and walker. And we have Jordan Henderson in cm.

I think there is less ego in the dressing room than we had with rio, Terry, lampard and Gerrard etc and I think that's a good thing. One thing you can say about Southgate is, he knows how to take young teams to the very end of international tournaments and win them. I've been bored when watching England lately, especially after watching Liverpool. Its like watching coronation Street straight after watching pulp fiction but his record is pretty good so far, I am pleasantly optimistic about our chances.


4.) 21 Mar 2018 19:36:41
This doeant mean to sound rude, but does anyone really care about england? Reality is Southgate doesn't have a clue and is a yes man to the powers above him. I would be surprised if we make it through the group. For me personally I haven't watched them since we got beat by Iceland and haven't had a keen interest since 2006.


5.) 21 Mar 2018 19:59:34
Of course I care about England. Firstly, its the only team I am obliged to support as a football fan. Secondly, you can't pick and choose when to be an England fan because we're not good at a particular time. Thirdly, any tournament with us in it just adds another level of excitement. Regardless of how bad we are, there is always the thought of 'maybe we could. ' before we begin.


6.) 21 Mar 2018 20:56:39
People would “care” more if we were a better team.
I think “care” is the wrong word. I care about lots of thinks but international and even domestic football teams can look after themselves.

I’d be delighted if England were challenging but when they play such dire uninspiring football I lose all interest.


7.) 21 Mar 2018 21:02:22
Max, why the hell would there be a thread here if no one cared? And since when has being a fan of a team been dependent on that team's success? England's my team, it doesn't matter if they win or if they fail to qualify. I cannot wait till the world cup begins.

{Ed025's Note - my main problem with england is....when the squad gets together for matches or even worse friendlies the domestic football programme flies out the window, i love my bets on a saturday and its the highlight of the week for me watching stelling and the boys giving me hope that i get the better of william hill, it might be a bit selfish of me but other than putting my dosh down a grid whats a guy supposed to do.. :)


8.) 21 Mar 2018 21:24:44
Ed25, I bet once a year on the Grand National, with my personality anything more would be dangerous. I'd win once, convince myself I'm a genius and lose everything else.

{Ed025's Note - that sounds like me putney everything to excess, i smoke too much, drink too much and gamble far too much, if i was better looking i would probably be doinking everything in sight as well mate..and im a vicar.. :)


9.) 21 Mar 2018 21:41:10
I'm with Ed025 on this one, international football bores me rigid.


10.) 21 Mar 2018 22:50:03
Thats fair enough that a lot of you don't care too much for international football. England aren't usually too great and it's a joke having the world cup in Russia and Quatar, It just got me thinking about it today after reading the BBC so thought i would at least ask.

I think we have some talented players but not very experienced at the international level.

I remember after the UTD game, so many pool fans, slating klopp. I'm sat here thinking there is no other manager in the world i would rather have than Klopp, he's a good fit for Liverpool, you won't win every single game you play, that's how football is. We have been playing the most amazing football this season. Even losing Couts, we just stormed on and carried on smashing teams because Klopp knows what he is doing, We could end up winning nothing which is a shame.

Has been highlighted City been given too much respect, when teams like Wigan are going at them and getting points. It's embarrassing the prem teams who don't try and get a draw or grab a 1-0. Not saying City haven't played top notch but some games teams look set up to just conceded a 1-0 sort of result.

I think we have been going strength to strength and after losing to the mancs we came back against watford and bashed them 5-0, they didn't play well and made it easier for us than it should have been i think, but a top response from the boys.

I think next season will be a little bit closer at the top and hopefully with Kieta and the a few other additions in summer we will be able to properly challenge! I can't see us selling Salah, considering couts went in Jan, you won't win anything selling your best players each window. Definitely going to have interest from the big foreign teams but I think we can keep him!

I personally would have rather faced another team, We haven't played a top European team in a while. So it would have been nice to see how we stack up against the likes of Juve or Barca, that said we have played city before and know what to expect. Likewise they know what to expect from us.

Additionally would have been nice if the possibility remained that maybe we could face city in the final and have 2 English teams then. Anyway, come on redmen :) YNWA.

Nice one carra mate.

sounds like a lot of the younger lads are doing top notch! Wilson especially :) Nice to see grujic getting game time.

also im sure a lot of pool fans are feeling better seeing Sevilla outclass those mancs. They talked so much about how they will bash sevilla and show us how it's done. Nice one lads!

I hadn't seen anything of Robertson, so when we signed i didn't have an opinion i just hoped that he was decent and he definitely showing that i feel.

Always thought the OX never managed to live up to his potential at arsenal. Some games he would play like a beast but struggle to find that form, in his last season i think it was his best performances came from the centre but still it was the consistency i was worried about. When he played for arsenal i felt he had more average games than better games. That said i also thought he doesn't get a proper run out in the team. Wenger hardly ever gave him 90 mins. I felt the price paid was too high.

He has started showing some good consistency and i feel it will take a little more to cement a starting spot, he is growing and adapting stringing together strong performances and you never know, under klopp and this team he could find his potential. Even if im not a player's biggest fan, they are a Liverpool player and i will always give my full support in wanting them to be or develop into top players! I wish that for the OX!

They are a top side, As soon as the Pool vs City draw came out the comments on the BBC from the city fans were downright disrespectful. like 'who have we got in the semis then? ' look what happened.

Hats of to Roma they have been good so far. I think just respect them and try and prepare and play our footy!

YNWA.

Thing i like about firmino he just opens up things for others. Puts pressure from the top end of our team, comes back to help defend, not afraid of tackling/ defending when needed. Holds up under pressure. He has the lot.

Going forward he can beat a man, find key passes.

most importantly his movement, reminds me of Suarez when he was here. causing problems with his running gives other players space and time to make things happen and it just so happens our 2 on the wing are top notch!

Firmino is just a class act!

Also while im posting i want to shout out to the OX! Honestly ill hold my hands up was sceptical about him, only thought his good perfomances at arsenal came from the middle and was inconsistent that said wenger never gave him a good run. Was my MOTM last game. Has just got better and better over the last few months. Looks a lot more settle now :) Found 2 or 3 top top passes last game, wasnt afraid to drive and have some shots when it opened up and put a shift in the centre. Hats off to him!

I wouldn't pay over 40m for pogba, decent player but so far hasn't been anything special. he still has the potential though plus he's got a good physical side to his game but i just don't see it working out for him in the prem, he needs to go to a league which is slower paced i think. He stood out in italy but bang average in the prem.

Utd as usual will probably lose money on him if sold, they already sold him once for 5m was it? Even the Sanchez on a free is costing them obscene wages and so far he's looked very poor. it's their speciality remember depay! makes the firmino transfer look like a bank robbery ;)
