Up until that happened with Jack and he went through a few players and were stopped by a three man sandwich, you just really have to say the match was boring as F***.

England have gone back to there boring ways and southgate is a manager who wont give Jack much chances. Imagine the raves if he had of scored the winner off of that move last night SG wouldnt of been able to say no.

SG is a turd if he doesnt start Jack in next game, all the signs are there to play him when the rest of the left's are playing like boy scouts.

Mmmmmm this picture for me says alot. On one hand you have the player saying thank F*** you come to your senses boss, on the other hand you have Southgate saying make it count because it's the only 15 minutes you'll ever see while I'm England boss.

The man is like the devil behind that smile, dressed in that suit, I tell you he could be a bond Villain right now Southgate could be.

Southgate would rather coach the flair out of players. A player like Grealish and others in the squad can turn a match on its head. Even in that short cameo it is obvious to many where the problem lies with the management once again. England will never reap success under Southgate.

I’m just glad he got his cap and didn’t get injured. The experience will give him a boost going into the season and he’ll hopefully now see that he has a way into the squad whilst still playing for Villa. His focus should now be on exceeding the standards he set for himself last season and make himself unstoppable.

look at the speed the rest of the England team are moving there while all 20+ yards away.

Spot on. Jack took about 4 Danes out of the move and ran 30 yards.
In that time, Declan Rice (#8) moved about 6 inches when in the perfect position to support Jack and draw defenders away from him. 
And Kane just ambled towards the 6 yard line (which to be fair is OK if he's expecting a shot).

At least Trippier (I think) overlapped to provide support or a decoy.
Only TAA was actually providing movement in an dangerous position. From RB.

I don't know if this is the manager, or too many players not giving a shit. Or both. But at 0-0, you would have expected the team to flood forward when a guy dribbles in the box (😉)

Both tbh; line up and tactical plan will swiftly dispel any fears of playing against us and remove any favourites tag for the Euros (though that's quite the batman gambit from Southgate if that's why he's doing this) aligned with most of the players treating it like a preseason warm up match. 

If we're still playing that interminable dirge next June they'll be plenty of knives out, but I've seen plenty of England sides flatter to deceive in warmups and qualifiers only to turn up ghastly performances in the finals; so perhaps GS is trying to engineer the reverse (hope springs eternal and all that).

For sure. That’s how I feel. As long as we continue to invest and keep League status there’s no reason for Jack to leave.

I wondered who that number 8 strolling around casually was. He's **** useless.

Yeah if he actually made a run he might have occupied one of the defenders that smothered Grealish at the end.

yeah to be honest I don’t think Southgate is being particularly malicious, I think he’s just clueless. His idea of breaking down two very organised international sides (isn’t it amazing that other countries deal with that perfectly fine) is hit the ball wide and hope Sterling or Sancho or Kane can do something. It’s simultaneously massively conservative and hail mary. it’s 4 4 **** 2 in a different shape.

Southgate Reminds me of Oceans twelve or thirteen film, when Matt Damon puts on the prosthetic Nose to seduce the hot blonde, just in this case the blonde is Grealish lol.

Wasnt being serious, but you could take the picture like that with the way SG has been with Grealish.
