Yes .... you can say that again, Summer!

The best England side I've seen for years, they all played as a team for a change.

Actually, I was expecting that response. There is more to come, which should make it all clear. (It's just a case of working up the will or retrieving a previous post elsewhere)


Without these/this additional post/s it would be like one of the other shit threads. And I don't do shit threads.

Leave it to me chuck.

Yes, that's what was lacking from the `old guard` - all after personal aggrandisement for their own ends rather than for the good of the team. They could have had a player stood in front of an open goal, and does another player cross the ball to him? No. He'd rather fight his way through the opposing team's defenders and try and score a goal himself.

Re: England - The New Dawn

Here it is (fresh of the press and exclusive):

There has been a revolution in recent times in the way football is coached (including down the age groups in the academies). It's a more "enlightened" and "progressive" style of play which has evolved. And it is already paying off with the unprecedented success of the youth teams at all levels, last year.

Man United's embarrassing thrashing by Barcelona in 20011 was a wake up call to the English leagues as well - shorter,more considered passes and patient build up. With defenders having the skill and composure to play the ball out of defence (rather than just lumping it all the time).

Southgate has taken all this (and more) on board and in future we will be able to compete with the best far more than in previous decades.

Already there is some genuine, top top talent coming through. For further details see my thread on three gems, on the way to the senior team:
