That was mind numbingly dull by England. Never easy down to ten but Southgate needs to have a look at his tactics, selection and changes.

Not a great performance, but we did have 10 men against a side who are good defensively. We also lost to a debatable penalty.

Who did he send off at the end, Henderson?

The discipline of some England players, on and off the pitch is ridiculous. Reece James sent off at the end. That said, the refereee was a right pillock. Mindnumbingly boring match though.

Let's be honest the last two games where beyond negative and dull, even if it was 10 men.

Negative changes, grealish not involved at all. Brought on Henderson for Mount. Two holding midfielders.

Was garbage.

What I find frustrating is we used 3 centre halves at the last World Cup, Southgate said it wasn't creative enough against the better sides. We then changed formation, it brought some encouraging attacking displays, Spain away perfect example. Now we've gone back to the uncreative formation.

Seems like it was James who was sent off. He was excellent today as well.

PNE 0-1 Stoke. A lot of similarities between the patterns of these matches!

Pundits saying we’re clutching at straws wanting a penalty ten minutes from time - but it was much more of a pen than the Denmark one - which was a minor, inconsequential brush of a leg. The minor brush on Coady’s foot did actually affect a shot, about 6 yds from the goal.

Neither was really a pen but ... Oh and Maguire’s second yellow was a joke. His first wasn’t though!

Southgate's the wrong man for the job,we will never win anything with him in charge,Players like alexander arnold and grealish on the bench,setting up against Denmark at home with 2 holding midfielders,unbelievably negative,so far in this nations league campaign weve failed to score in 2 games against Denmark,scored a penalty against Iceland a penalty against Belguim our only goal from open play was mounts which took a very fortunate deflection

I hope this new formation is an experiment and Southgate returns to 433 when Sterling is available again.
Seem to have gone from a thrilling attacking outfit to a turgid long ball side in a matter of months.

If that’s the best the Premiership can produce, then we have lost the plot when it comes to English football.
