      WM was a pre-post war (WWII not Iraq) formation, before  4 4 2. I was basically saying Roy Hodgson has no idea what he is doing and likening him to a dinosaur. However, if you read the post after that I go on to say its not Roys fault it is of course the FA's fault.

      Naw oh hey man I'm not having a go but I'll admit I still haven't got a clue about WM. I don't know what that stands for. It's hard to keep up because non of us can be bothered to actually write words just acronyms.
      Lets not go down that route. Sometimes things need to be written as they are.

      W M : if you put the M at the back you have 3 on the backline and two defensive midfielders i.e. 5 at the back. If you stick the W up front you have 2 inside forwards and 2 wingers and a centreforward. It's called W M because it looks like a W on top of an M when you look at the formation.

      I would seriously consider giving the job to Alan Shearer. Someone who at least gives a sh*t, has seen the players we have as a pundit, and will give it everything.

      Think about it, it makes sense. If we dont, Southgate and co can continue on with the "Lets laugh at English Football" otherwise known as the FA.

      I laughed last night when we lost to Iceland because its typical of what we are capable of doing, hyping up the sh*t we have while failing miserably on the pitch, its something we have done great at over the years. However, deep down, its getting stupid now, its getting embarrissing, we are better than this, and yet all we are, put simply, is clowns. We entertain in a comical way, somebody at the FA has to stop this, somebody somewhere has to say, ok, lets get serious.

      That's the problem with English football. No local options are good enough. If Alan Shearer has any chance, it's not going to end well. He was a disaster at Newcastle. You can't have a glorified mascot as your leader.

      Biggest problem for England is grassroots football and it's setup.

      Look at the list of youngsters that have come through over the last few years Sterling, Kane, Wilshere, Smalling, Alli  etc.

      Would any cut the mustard at a Barca or a Madrid or any other top European club outside the PL?

      That's part of my point, though. None are good enough.

      Southgate, Pardew, Shearer? Eddie Howe is too young to have his career ruined.

      The answer has to be beyond England.

      No it doesnt, the answer is simple, give the job to people who care, people like Shearer do care, yeah he failed at Newcastle, but look at who we have had as managers of England. Shearer would succeed, in fact, if he was hired, I would bet by house he would get us a trophy.

      Plenty of people care!! they care in Italy and Germany and Spain too. Except in those countries there are people who care and are also excellent managers. The problem with England is, if you don't mind me saying as it also applies to Australia, they think they are better than they are. The overriding sense of being English to the outsider is .... a sense of superiority. I am not saying all English but it seems a cultural norm. Brexit is a classic example. WWII and the Empire etc is a while ago now. Got to move on and change or become irrelevant. Australia (my home) is the same. Except we are just thick!!

      Just thinking, are expectations too high?

      I see the team as more of a group of talented individuals who struggle to play to each others strenghts whether that be tactics/being played out of position, both, or anything else.

      Squad needs an overhaul, there's no room for Rooney in that side either in my opinion.
