G.S showing why he shouldnt be given the reigns full time. Such a boring selection. Thats the thing with England, form never matters. Sturridge and the likes will always get picked

The thing with England, we traditionally absolutely piss the qualification phase so why do something different? There are some behavioural or cultural issues stopping us perform in tournaments but that's another issue.

Going to both, as well as England v South Africa in between for my first egg chasing match at Twickenham. Couldn't care less about the result v Spain but we do need to beat the Scots at home.

Slightly worried we could win both and end up giving Southgate the job full time. :)

Lallana has to be the first name on the team sheet. He has been brilliant for Liverpool this season.

He was great for England too in the last round of games (apart from his shooting which was terrible).

Beat Scotland, in a game that matters "so we should". Lose to Spain, in a game that doesn't "This is why we'll never win anything".

simplistic view

can remember the november international friendly when chile played us off the park with great off the ball movement and high pressing and it was exactly why we'll never win anything

not sure if its because of injuries or poor form but spain have named a pretty inexperienced squad, no pique, ramos, alba, iniesta, fabregas, pedro, it really is looking like a nothing game

SkySports bigging up the importance and difficulty of the "Spoilt-F*****rs United v Scotland"

WTF?

Scotland are shite and have Strachan as Manager & McGlee as Assistant.

Sunderland could beat them and they are shit-er than we were last season.

Eh. We big up the Birmingham derby even when they're shit. Don't see the problem. It's still important.

I think it's perfectly reasonable to big up a game against the old enemy.  That rivalry is what football is all about.  The relative strengths of the teams is irrelevent.  It's not even a friendly.  There are actual vital points on the line.

 Best football England ever played was under Hoddle ,we actually out passed the likes of France and Italy and began to look like a team who could compete . On reflection ,maybe the FA were a tad impulsive in there decision to sack him . Yes ,I know he upset an awful lot of decent people with all that karma nonsense ,but that's exactly what it was ,nonsense ,and that is exactly what the England team have been ,ever since Hoddle's departure .
