Re: Tarkowski for England ?

Interesting one is Tarkowski. Been excellent in the league games so far but you have to say that he looks significantly better when he plays next to Mee. Weirdly though, he looks marginally the better centre half when playing next to Mee but when he plays next to Long they're both garbage.

Potentially the different style in which we're playing? Certainly seem to be knocking the ball around better than we did last year. We created most of our opportunities against Spurs in the last 10 by getting the ball in between the full back to the winger and getting the ball in the box.
