How good has f1 been this season, really competitive.

Its the last year before all the changes take place, I hope that Ferrari get there act together and become competitive again.

I don't agree with Nicky Butt's assertion that with Fred, McTominay, Pogba and Fernandes we are well served in midfield. I firmly believe that with another commanding centre back and just one quality holding midfielder, such as Ndidi, we would be much more scure and able to challenge for honours. I'm not sure about Rice. I think that he is a solid player. He is better than McTominay but not by much.

Ndidi or Saul.

Rice and McTominay often get compared because they are being asked to play the same role.

The issue though is that for Rice that is his natural and best role in a side.

For McTominay it isn't his best role. McTominay is not a sitting CDM, but a complete box to box player. He's great at using his strength to win the ball, hold off the opposition and keep the ball moving. Then either dribbling through a press (more with strength than finesse) or ghosting late into the box to make use of his shooting ability. He is the type of player who chases the ball rather than protects the space. His passing is solid, but he doesn't have the range of a playmaker.

Rice is a better sitter, covering and protecting that space in front of the defence, his passing range is underrated and is improving.

Rice would be a good signing and could play alongside a technical player like Donny, a more physical player like McTominay or an expansive passer like Garner (in the future) .

In my opinion signing a true holding midfielder like Rice will have a bigger individual impact than any other position as it will give us a competitive midfield, improve our defending and give us a great platform to attack.

6 paragraphs to state rice is a dm and mctominay a b2b. 👀.

RedWhiskey, it's more like one paragraph and 5 sentences spaced out to make it easier for the reader to consume 😂

Plus the final sentence is more my opinion on our midfield rather than discussing what type of player either Rice or McTominay are😂.

To be blunt, we have the worst midfield in my 30 odd years of following the club, no question.

Creativity is at an all-time low. Looking forward to seeing what comes in, if Sancho is the marquee signing which is looking likely now it doesn't look like mega-bucks are going to be spent on a CDM.

Maybe Varane and Sancho will do for this window which isn't all bad, two starters IMO although I'd expect Sancho/ Greenwood to replace each other a lot and for Sancho to play on the left also.

Let Pogba go next year on a free and go all in on Bellingham for CM for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2021 23:10:38
Well the way these things go it will probably be a summer of Bellingham speculation next year, with any number of English teams. I’d be glad to see him at OT based on what I’ve seen but maybe not quite ready yet.

Ah Spenno, we did have anderson and cleverley pulling the strings for a long time and gibson backing them up. Not our best midfield, but I wouldn't say our worst lol.

I don’t expect anyone to agree with me but I would happily take Sergio Ramos for a year.

No ta.

Ramos is perfect for PSG or Italian football. Maybe Arsenal.

Chelsea did a similar thing with thiago silva and it worked well.

Also a bailly ramos partnership would be a sight to behold, could end up with 9 men in some games.

Could "like a new signing " Phil Jones play in a back 3 then DSG? maybe have them come out on to the pitch in a little clown car.

Silva hasn't played once since march and doesn't have 1 knee.

Ramos is finished.

Tbf if we move to back 3 of Ramos Varane and Maguire there won't be much getting passed that.

{Ed025's Note - harry would be the weak link in that 3 mate..

19 Jun 2021 18:17:52
Portugals fullbacks are definitely their weak link and are costing them this game. Germany exploiting them in those areas time and again!

Something I just want to point out and hopefully I don't jinx it. But the match officiating has been on the whole absolutely top class so far at the Euro's. No controversial decisions or obvious errors, no real controversy at all. Which has been a real breath of fresh air. I've really enjoyed listening to debate over tactics, player form and footballing errors/ moments of brilliance rather than how a Ref made a game changing mistake.

It does make you question though that if matches can be so well officiated at the Euro's then why do we have to put up with such terrible refereeing in the EPL.

What really goes on with our Ref's, are they just terrible (and if so why only in the EPL, as they have done a good job at the Euro's), or is there something more sinister to the repeated poor decisions they make in the EPL.

They are terrible, and make no mistake, they were terrible at big competitions too.

If I remember correctly, no english ref was given a match outside the groups at the last WC.

It has been great Shappy, although I was personally upset about the Krychowiak Polish sending off. It shouldn't have been one yellow let alone two.

There will always be contentious decisions as shown from the responses, but on the whole VAR has been a lot better.

Our 2 bets referees Oliver and Taylor have both been good so far. When you listen to Peter Walton getting basic rules wrong it shows what level our top refs are at, they get promoted because of who they know not what they know and the whole culture is a joke and it’s no surprise to me that our refs at the top level are so bad.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jun 2021 22:13:48
I don't think refs from countries that carry on in the competition can remain in the later stages unless its changed. England reached the semis so no english refs.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jun 2021 23:21:13
It was a pen against england aswell. Missed ball and landed on foot with player and ball still playable.

It was more a var shocker than ref shocker though. Difficult to see in real time.

Understand your point though, a lot of the refereeing has been confident and good.

Agree1 0Disagree

Seen them given but Sterling went down a bit easy for me Dodgy, wouldn’t want that to be given against me.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2021 05:03:40
He made a play on the ball and got nowhere near it and "stamped" on sterling's foot with the foot he was trying to make the tackle with.

It wasn't incidental contact, two players running together and accidentally standing on his foot. Or clipping his leg.

That is my logic.

I honestly have no idea how VAR justifies ignoring it. Just ridiculous. At very least red should have been sent to look.

Would have been a scandal for england to get anymore than a point out of that game though, they were horrible, so they got what was deserved from the game.

Agree1 0Disagree

I think they have just allowed the games to flow much more. It's almost like they aren't "buying" the cheap fouls that we see more of in the Champs league that slow the pace of the game.

There will always be difference of opinion on what is a foul and what isn't on the close ones due to bias, however it seems to be much more consistent in this tournament.

Long may it continue!

Do you seem lately being a future RB for England?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I assume that means Lamptey and I would say no, because it really isn't making the most of his talents, but it is England and that is the way they play. Take a bunch of players, throw them together in a way that hinders their talents and then wonder why the team fails again. So he could well be.}

Yes that was who i meant ED001. This England team is very reminiscent of the Man Utd team.
