    Player Watch: Giovani Lo Celso

    This is something I've noticed too. Some lovely incisive passes the last few games. (Still like a proper DM, though. Peak Wanyama would be perfect, although if I'm being greedy, I'd like a DM who passes the ball a little better than he did.)

    ABs have made lots of errors. Some unforced, but many forced. Well outplayed.

    Conspiracy theories are silly. It's just an overly pedantic decision. NZ kicking the ball back to England too much. Understand that they don't want to be pinned inside their 22, but they're not taking much territory with their clearing kicks and they're unable to make inroads on English ball at...

    Too much pessimism about England's chances against the ABs. For me, the ABs haven't been that impressive over the last 18 months by their standards (which, admittedly, are stratospheric). They were v good against Ireland, but Ireland were poor, and I'm not confident the ABs are gonna replicate...

    Springbok defence is formidable, prob the best in the world. Reckon they also have the most brutish forward pack. They don't dazzle in attack like some teams, but I don't reckon they need to against Wales.

    Will Genia was terrible for Wallabies, IMO. Every single time he clears the ball, he grabs the ball, straightens, then runs two or three paces before throwing the pass. Doing no favours at all to the backs. By the time the ball gets to them, the onrushing defence is on them. Compare it to the...

    Owens should have been a red. Clear red. Honestly, given some of the yellow cards dished out in this comp, it's mindboggling that was only deemed a yellow.

    It's amazing the difference a forward who actually moves makes.

    Personally, didn't think either Hooper or Kerevi deserved yellow.

    You'd take the point any day of the week, but it's a bit demoralising how uncompetitive we were.

    Not pissed off to be honest. So didn't deserve a point. They've played us off the fucking park.

    I agree. The changed formation, increased urgency and speed, and Aston Villa fatiguing were all key components of our increased dominance in the second half. Eriksen's introduction intensified the changes in our favour that were already underway. Disagree with the people who say he was the...

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Aston Villa

    I've watched the replay of the goal again, and I still reckon the biggest problem is that none of our midfielders track McGinn's run. That means a simple long ball creates a two-on-two on the last line, which is surely not the plan. If one of the midfielders tracks back, Sanchez being a little...

    The goal was a collective failing, I thought. From memory (so I stand to be corrected), if I were going to zero in *one* player, it would be Sissoko, who I thought should have tracked the run of the Villa player. Personally didn't think Sanchez did too much wrong. Maybe Rose could have squeezed...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    If Eriksen stays, there's no chance he'll be disinterested. If he wants a glamorous move, he has to play glamorous football. Real will have no shortage of players clamouring to play for them. They're not likely to go for Eriksen, IMO, if he's engaged in a 12-month sulk and played like shit.
