Really can’t be bothered with England theses days. I hope they win, coz if they don’t Gareth won’t be fired off just yet. Still got a couple of years left at least coz of the cosy run to the WC semi. But in all honesty, we need someone else. Clueless yes man.

You can’t blame Southgate for the squad and team selection as I am pretty certain he has no say in it.
The problems lie with the FA.

I've defended Southgate but picking Pickford tonight ahead of Pope or Henderson just doesn't make any sense.

Really???

In terms of competitive football he's had two qualifying campaigns and 1 tournament. Our qualifying record is 15 wins out of 18 games topping both groups and he reached the semi-final of the world cup which has only been bettered by one English manager in our entire history

I lost interest in England a long time ago, even the last World Cup “success” didn’t interest me. I enjoyed Wales run in the last Euros more than anything England have done in the last 10+ years.

Can't be JBG, he should have returned home by now, from the BBC feed.

Iceland manager Erik Hamren is stepping down after this match and is without several big names - with Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson and Burnley midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson among those to return to their clubs early.

Yes, but you got to another semi-finals with a side that were genuinely good and probably would have won the final had they won the shoot out v the Germans.
I still believe that the best England world cup side was 1970. Southgate's lot weren't in the best 5 English sqads yet he got them to the semi finals. So he's either lucky or good. The draw for the last 16 suggests more the former.

I have just turned the fire off and am watching it go out. Much more exciting than watching England v Iceland. I just woke up after the two 'commentators', one who insists on talking about anything but the game, plus the game itself had sent me to sleep......

If you don't find this England performance interesting, exciting.... then you will never be pleased. Neat intricate football, fairly fluid movement, inventive football, and creation of many chances. They can only beat what's in front of them, but their performance in this first half has been excellent.

Decent performance against an average side. Problem GS has is that Rashford, Sterling and Sancho aren’t playing and the first two of them will start when available. Thus meaning two of the midfielders are dropped.

We played Iceland just months before Southgate took over. Take a look at the team, the performance and the result that day and you can see how much he has transformed the England team since taking the job

HT.
While everyone is aware it's against the weakened side of one of Europe's lesser lights, it was a good watch.
Some good movement off the ball for a change.
Just got to enjoy it for what it is.

Good half after a slow start. Committing a lot of men forwards and playing the ball quickly. Amazing how much more positive we can be with players like Grealish and Mount.

Thought we played ourselves needlessly into trouble a couple of times at the back which is fine against the likes of Iceland but will, and was at weekend, be punished by better sides.

Stats for those claiming (ridiculously) that England put them to sleep....

England's performance in the first half:

Possession - 80%
Goal attempts - 11
Shots on target - 6
Total passes - 430
Completed passes - 397
Dangerous attacks - 44

I have yet to see anything which justifies all the hype about Sancho. Indeed I cant recall him doing anything special with the ball whenever I have watched him play.
