The whole team is just average, but as we always seem to qualify for major tournaments then the press build them into world beaters only for us to come crashing down to Earth when we get beat by the likes of Iceland.

England have the weapons to hurt most teams, unfortunately Southgate doesn't play to our one strength - pace. Last year we ripped Germany a new one playing with youth and pace, then Hodgson brought back the old guard and went back to plodding England.

I know he has a lot of fans (notably Hoddle!) but I think he has - like the rest of the England team - a lot to prove and a long way to go before he can be considered world class.

I'm not sure we have anybody who is world class at the moment. Rashford is wild but one thing he does do is have a crack at goal even though it would be better to pass......Kane does the same thing.  I give them both credit for having a do.  So Rashford had three or four shots yesterday and one went in.......better that Madine & ALF with usually 0 shots between them......just saying.

The Sun reporting Frank De Boer sacked -

FRANK DE BOER has been SACKED by Crystal Palace after just four matches in charge.
The Dutchman lost all of his Premier League games, failing to score a single goal.

Seems a bit harsh, he's the new Sammy Lee. Trying to turn an Allardyce long ball team into a football team overnight. Ironically Sammy Lee was his assistant.

Take note Ken, this is how to be decisive.

It's being suggested that Roy Hodgson will take over. You couldn't make it up. It's like a merry-go-round of failed managers.

Hodgson will have them relegated by Christmas.

The key word here is "overnight" IMO. Having watched them absolutely batter Burnley and only lose it as a result of possibly the worst back pass I've ever seen (CYL) it was a harsh result. Add to that the missed chances, especially from Benteke and Dann it definitely looks like De Boer had made some headway.

I'm no fan of De Boer but surely Palace should have given him a bit longer?

That said, with Palace playing Southampton next followed by City and United away and then Chelsea, I can't see there being much opportunity to get points on the board next month so if they'd kept him on they would have had to set their sights on improvements in performance as the criterion by which to measure progress.

This is crazy. Does the next manager get four games? And the one after that?

It took BSA six games to get a win with Palace. 

Some people need to get a grip. (Norpig excepted).

If Hodgson loses his next 4 games which is quite possible with their fixtures, Parish will be under pressure to sack him as well.

He'd have been better waiting until the run of tough games was over and then making a decision.

TBH it has echoes of our situation. We can't be hanging around until we play the "lesser" teams in our division to pick up points because there aren't any easy games. I know Boro are a top team but there aren't many teams in the Championship that look to be at our level so we have to find a way to win regardless of who we're playing. We have to average over a point a game just to survive.

No goals in four games with the quality of players Palace have is poor. He was sacked after about 70 days at Inter as well so perhaps there is a bigger problem?

Did you watch the Burnley game Fab? Palace totally dominated and deserved to win but were desperately unlucky due to a mixture of poor finishing from players like Benteke who you'd normally back to score and Chung Yong Lee's monumental cock up.
There may be a bigger problem, but I have to say I thought they were terribly unlucky not to get goals and points from the game and if they had we wouldn't be having this conversation.

You cite Palace's "quality players" but it was their lack of quality that got De Boer sacked.

If you believe the rumours then the players didn't want to play for him, didn't like the training and what was being asked of them.

Even quality players can down tools and deliberately under perform, look at Chelsea the year before last.

Redknapp sacked by Birmingham

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41296238


Crazy move - they've just let him sign FOURTEEN players - what if the next man doesn't rate them?

They should have given him at least another month to let them settle in and start to perform well.
