Thread: Starting line up v Holland

  1. #1

    Starting line up v Holland

    I would select the following

    GK Pope
    Back Three Stones Maguire Tarkowski
    Wing Backs Trippier Young
    Midfield Dele Alli Cook Lingard
    Forwards Rashford Vardy

    Looks good, a touch of Claret there. Not sure about Cook

    I picked Cook as the defensive midfielder to get a better balance there. I think he is having an excellent season with Bournemouth.

    Having selected Pope in the squad, GS must now play him. If he does and Nick plays well, then he's got a chance of being England's keeper in the World Cup. Digits crossed for him.

    This is the team I would put out. I doubt if Pope Tarkowski Trippier or Cook will start. More is the pity. Pity too that Ben Mee is not in the squad as it would be interesting to see how the Pope-Tarkowski-Mee unit performed for England.

    Pickford distribution impresses a nd is likely to start.

    Nick has done all he can. Fewest goals conceded, most clean sheets, no errors leading to a goal. He may not start in Amsterdam but if he does not get real game time in the two friendliest it will be a travesty and I do not use that word lightly.

    Pope's kicking is what lets him down, when Billy Mercer sorts that out he will romp the England Number One spot, even ahead of Tom Heaton.

    I don’t really understand why Southgate chose Pope for the friendlies squad other than to give him a taste of being involved in the England set up. Let’s face it, the 3 goalies going to Russia is already a foregone conclusion. However, one could always look at the other side of the coin and considering Butland, Pickford and Hart will go to Russia, why not give Pope some game time and see how he reacts?

    As for Tarky, I can see him getting some meaningful game time, he has a real chance of making the plane.

    Good lads supping honest ale, seems like the Hollanders are a bit miffed, they need lessons from us Brits in how to celebrate diverse cultures.

    Both Clarets on the bench.

    Gomez better than Tarkowski?

  17. #17
    Gomez off Maguire on.
    0-0 at HT in a pretty boring game. Playing ou5 from the back isn’t working well.

    In a nothing game Maguire who has International experience comes on, why not blood Tarky ?

    Lingard scores for England 1-0

    Goal: England could win this now, without actually breaking sweat lol. This looks like a poor and inexperienced Holland team, and surely they will get better than this.

    Whenever I watch England play Holland, it reminds me of the Nobbers v the Lashers (for obvious reasons of course).

    Just remember the next game is at Wembley.. They have to sell tickets to the cockneys without Kane.. So deir alli ashtray rosey (the worst unfit player ever to wear the england shirt) all need to start.

    No space for a little Northern club.
    Pope Mee and tarkowski... For me it's logic

    And I hated Ben Mee at full back.. But he is the bravest player in Europe. Remends me of butcheresk....
