In a 4-3-3?

And is that just their projected set up or did they talk to Roy.

Hope Walker isn't going to be Hodgson's No.1 choice at RB. Clyne is far superior.

As others have said, Rooney is ahead of Kane and Vardy mostly with them dropping out wide. Had really been hoping to see this 442 diamond with Rooney behind them, but it's not what I thought it'd be

02-06-2016, 07:12 PM
It is the 4-4-2 Diamond. It's just a bit more fluid, Dier dropping into CB, Rooney going up a bit. Happy players are moving around and not being rigid. Vardy always moves wide for Leicester when he can.

its a hopeless formation, idiotic, if this clown thinks this is going to be the formation that brings us success in the Euros he is an even bigger idiot than I thought, the granny shagger is a million miles away from being a pivotal member of any team in an international tournament, his record since 2004 shows that, I'm almost hoping that the Ruskies give us a tonking so that public pressure will make the clown bow to make changes, I have a feeling we will be seeing a rerun of the 2014 WC where he clearly hasn't learnt anything.

Rooney is playing centre-forward (where he is too slow and hesitant) and crowding out Kane and Vardy, and neglecting his midfield duties.
Vardy has had no good ball, so looks mediocre, and Kane is deferring too much to Rooney.
He should tell Rooney to bugger off and play in midfield, where he's supposed to be !

Zulu84

4 ******* years Roy has had to build something and this is the best formation and tactics he can come up with?

Absolute joke

Spot on. He's an awful manager. One week before the tournament and he still doesn't know his best team or formation. His biggest crime, though, is playing people out of position to accommodate Rooney.

I saw Kane score a deflected free kick for Spurs at Villa last season. Does he take them for Spurs now? I haven't seen anything from them to suggest this is a particular talent of his and it takes him away from being in the box at set pieces. Is it just everyone else is awful at them?

Summary in the Guardian about right:

It was ghastly viewing but England won and avoided serious injury. That’s it for the positives. The dreariness of most of the play against 10 men and, most of all, the fact that Kane and Vardy looked ill at ease in positions that they were played in to accommodate an ineffective Rooney can only have reassured Russia, Wales and Slovakia.

Haven't seen game nor highlights and have no interstellar based on comments here. But not surprised we were poor. Playing vardy and kane out wide? Why? If we are going to attack play vardy and kane as strikers. Sterling(as no one else) and lallana (as there is no other winger) as wide me. Wilshere and Alli in midfield and the back 4 and just go for it. Roy will get caught between formations and trying to fit square pegs in round holes. Finding a place for Rooney come what may. Falling into trap other England managers did by repeatedly playing Gerrard and lampArd together even when obvious it didn't work.

I thought it was a stupid match to have in all honesty, who on either side would want to get injured or even worse, sent off in the final warm up game before the tournament? Both sides will feel they have an outside chance of winning it.

I didn't watch the game and I'm glad by the sounds of it but much like Palace this season, we clearly didn't know how to break down 10 men.

Is Wilshire better than Rooney? I'd play Rooney in midfield with Alli and two defensive mids. Send the Clyne and Rose further up the pitch for width - neither of them can defend so best use them to their strengths.

This really shows how many of us are hindsight experts.

Not picking on anyone in particular but 'crying out for Townsend'.

Yet, on the transfer thread about him, many of us aren't keen on him being here, never mind in the England starting 11.

Even in the squad predictions, most of us said we'd happily leave him out, and that he shouldn't even have been called up. Now he's missing in the 11.

Same with formation. We all said pre-game that our squad is set up to attack, and that we aren't good enough to defend. So he plays a really attacking 11, it doesn't work out, and he's a fool.
