Bruce doesn’t do tactics but he should tell ASM and Wilson to run at Maguire whenever they get the chance.
Don't be silly. Get Carroll to go 1 v 1 with Maguire and have Wilson running at AWB. ASM on the bench. Prime Bruceball.

This Henderson/Rice partnership needs to stop. So negative.

Ahhh maybe the myth that Southgate had made England a good team might subside a bit. They’re bang average and given the players at their disposal there is literally a hundred managers who could do what Southgate has done.

Honestly wouldn’t want Southgate in charge of us.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Nah, Southgate is w*** and allergic to creativity. Plays a back 7 to make us 'defensively sound,' but we're losing 2-0. Simultaneously negating the real strength of the squad in its attack

Yep. Once upon a time you had to have shown your credentials as a coach to get a top international job but not the case now it seems. Southgate is still dining out on a WC semifinal where he lost to Belgium twice and to Croatia on the road to. Couldn’t even beat Columbia in 90 mins (or ET) and staggers from turgid display to turgid display. I can’t think of a single team currently in the top half of the PL who would consider him as their next manager. At a stretch maybe villa just because he’s a former player.

Play 433

Win nations league group against Spain and Croatia

Steamroll Euro 2020 qualification winning and scoring at least 4 goals in all but one game

Decide to switch to 343

Score one goal from open play in 5 games

Finish below Denmark, losing and drawing to them without scoring once

Southgate is a football genius.

Plays the DM role in a 5-2-3 better than both Henderson and Rice but you need to play Mount or another forward thinking player alongside him. Has to be one of Winks or Henderson, Rice nowhere near good enough.
