    <laugh> how have I forgotten him?! He’d actually be really good for us alongside Dier or Rice.

    I think that the 4-3-3 screwed things up, to be honest.
    The midfield didn't look like they knew what they were supposed to be doing and there was no link between them and the attackers.
    Having said that, Southgate's subs involved just chucking on more strikers and hoping for the best, so it's not all on the system.

    Just like our troubles with THAT GODDAMN BASTARD DIAMOND, the 433 that Southgate chose was ill-equipped for press resistance - which was especially problematic for Southgate considering the midfield three are hardly the most creative bunch

    Our defence was like the French army in 1940.

    By the way.If no PL games are being played,why don't the tv people show games from the lower leagues.I'm sure there are some good 'uns on we could see and enjoy! Piss on these internationals!

    Eriksen got the assist, as Denmark edged a 1-0 win over Switzerland.

    That being said, his performance has been slated by the Danish press - but of course the Narrative says he performs for his country, so nobody's going to check what Ekstra Bladet said

    He's all over the place. Carries himself with all the confidence of a man who recently realised he isn't as good as he thought he is. Which says a lot about his mental strength, or lack thereof.

    His set-pieces were absolute garbage, as usual, but I think that he was on a par with everyone else in a cagey game.
    The Swiss were slightly better overall, forcing Schmeichel into some fantastic saves. Definite MOTM performance from the keeper:

    He didn't even look when he made the pass. The Swiss defence looked familiar...….!

    Maybe the Swiss are also in desperate need of a top drawer DM

    ...luckily nobody's been stupid enough to make their completely out of depth DM club captain recently

    How did that Scotland game not get abandoned?
    Did you see the water on the pitch?

    Ben Davies with the sort of run and assist that'll guarantee plenty of comments ending with "...unlike Eriksen" from the Twitter/Reddit crowd

    Can't think of any reason for us to be worried...

    Sonny just arrived at North Korea and he and all South Korean national team will not be contacted with the outside during two days. The match will be held tomorrow 17:30(Kor).

    Broadcasting contract and press dispatching were canceled, so there will be no match photos or videos. And they said only the result would be sent by fax texts(even this is not fixed yet.which century are we living in?)

    One hundreds thousands of all North Korean people will be in the stadium and armed soldiers will standby around the stadium.

    North korea has been keeping unbeaten record at home for 14years. Stadium atmosphere is amazing. (If uif you are interested in stadium, look at this: NK against Lebanon

    The stadium is covered with artificial turf and Son said he hasn’t stepped on it since he was a Hamburg Youth(17yo).

    Only 50 SK team and officials are allowed to go there. And they cannot bring phones, it devices,books, and any things made in USA.

    And there maybe a bugging device in rooms they use.

    I just wanted to share this strange and hilarious match and country to spurs fans. Wish no any incident or injury happens.
