SO THERE IS A PLAN ?
28th March 2018
All I saw on TV was 11 individuals trying to be a team
England were Short on Skill compared to Italy who should have won by 3 goals
The Defence – there was a defence ?
A Stone wall ?
And the Attack – was clear they were short on practice of playing together
But it is the middle of the field where games are won and loss
Control the middle of the field and the game is at least half won.
There was poor link up.
I distinctly got the impression that the England players saw it less of a Friendly
and more of a Financial Day Out.
Southgate is the England Manager but other than picking the team appears to be
short of ideas.
So what do England need to do.
Take the final list of players and have them create a plan Front Middle & Back and the links between them.
Playing the opponents game is counterproductive
England must print their own game on the opposition
Then play friendlies to test the theory and put it into practice.
