Head of the Wayne foundation for benching Nketiah
Like everything else with Southgate, he's also an enormous hypocrite. He began his England career playing Kyle Walker as a CB in a back three which is certainly not his position at City and wasn't even a position he had played before at club level. That 2018 World Cup was played with Walker out of position but now he's some kind of purist who only plays the player in the exact role they play at club level? Well if that's the case then Kalvin Phillips and Maguire should never get off the bench because that's their club position.He should be happy about Foden’s mentality but instead wanted to put him back in his place. Southgate’s insistence that players only play in the position and role they play at their club is also a weakness. Fabregas and Bale are examples of how players can shine in one position for the country and one for their club. Pogba and McTominey are examples of how players can shine in different roles for their country yet appear lacklustre for their club in others.
We have some of the best attacking you attacking players in the world in Foden, Saka and Bellingham, then add Kane, Madison, Grealish, Sterling and Rashford and you can get a quality rotation in what should be an attacking team. Instead at time yesterday we had 6 players between the ball and Scotland’s midfield.
It’s not just poor quality but it’s also really ****ing boring
