    I thought the U21s were awful yet again. One shot on target I think. Who are worse? the U21s or Newcastle?!
    England, I thought played well. Bit of a sitter missed by Kane but of course it happens.

    The weatherman Alex whatever his name talking about a heatwave. He looks very balanced…A chip on each shoulder. (Ask Piers Morgan). Can’t stand the guy ugh! Must be a Utd supporter?

    Thought the back four did well. Shaw is on good form and Stones and Maguire do seem to play well together. Foden and Mount look effective and have no worries about playing their own game.

    Ed, Rodgers would be my choice too if we could get rid of the silly “English only rule” when the pool is so shallow and so empty.

    Sean, I’m definitely with you mate on Trent’s attacking abilities. I felt a few years ago when he broke into the first team, he was hyped by the media. He needs to be nurtured in being able to defend by orthodox.

    It’s tricky in getting the balance right, because the modern day right-back is given more emphasis to be more attack-minded.

    I’m fully with you on him needing rest which I’m sure practically all our players will benefit from. Agree mate on the standards raised and naturally bound to drop.

    Sean, Ireland unfortunately are a bit in the doldrums international ​football wise currently, if you didn’t see “Finding Jack Charlton” last night you can get it on catch up. Great times for Irish football and of course Big Jack himself lovely fella. Cheers 9’s

    Got the win we needed yesterday but far from convincing. Can’t be too hard on Stones as he’s had a tremendous season but it’s not the first time he’s messed up like that for England and cost us a goal.

    Cheers nine, I have the Jack documentary recorded mate.

    My first ever Ireland game was jacks first game againest wales. We lost 1-0 and south all broke his leg. Little did we know it was the beginning of the best era for Irish football we have ever known

    They really were great times. I went to every home game for 15 years. With my dad, brother, uncle and cousin ..Euro 88 and Italy 90 were great memories mate. We had a lot of English born players who would run through a brick wall for us.

    Andy Townsend was a brilliant capstan. Aldo, mcarthy, ray houghton from Scotland, mark lawerson. Throw in Liam Brady, Ronnie whelan, Paul McGrath, bonner, Kevin Moran ,

    We had some top class players. Funny thing is Jack be slaughtered these days for his style of play. Long balls into the corners with the forwards bringing the midfield onto play. Non of this playing from the back . It brought outstanding results though and he is an absolute legend in Ireland. I loved it

    Really special times. I am all for giving the current manager time. He’s trying his best. We don’t have a great side etc. It’s very bad at the minute but I’d give Kenny more time

    Important win albeit not a great performance. Felt for Stones he’s been magnificent all season pleased for him that he contributed to the winning goal nice strike by Maguire.

    Hopefully he can put that mistake behind him and kick on again.

    Great you got to meet him nine. He is truly loved over here

    Only saw the England pen once but was there any contact with Sterling there?

    Thought Sterling went down a bit easy Sean to be honest.

    That goal Werner missed for Germany was insane, it’s almost as if some unseen force is playing games with him, a 10 year old could have scored that.

    Sean, it was a rash tackle imo against a player running at speed in the penalty area probably 9 times out of 10 the Referee is going to award a penalty. I think the defenders trailing leg caught Sterling.

    Where’s VAR when you need it.😊

    I think Frank and Jody would be a good choice to manage the U21’s they’ve both got experience of bringing young players on and the young players would look up to Frank in a way they wouldn’t Boothroyd but as the Editor suggested previously I’m not sure it’s the right role in which for Frank to develop his managerial career.

    Ed…coached from….

    1.A young age
    2 By seasoned pro’s

    Not a Sterling fan but at least he had a go. penalty? Just about i would say but only in the sense the defender should have known better to go in at a player with speed in the box
