Gone are the days when every player in the 1st 11 are even in their club's 1st 11. Barkley and Delph should be nowhere near the squad. I honestly thought Southgate would be different when he dropped Joe Hart but he's just another manager who picks players from the bigger teams regardless of their form or whether they even play.

yeah agree with that Delph, Barclay not up to it and when your midfield is stronger when a water carrier like Henderson comes on you know it's very weak. Add in a bone idle Alli who should be dropped for laziness and there should be 5 or 6 mf slots in the squad but who is there to come in?

We don't have a de Jong or Erikssen or KdB or Hazard or Mane to make things happen just a bunch of willing runners like Delph and Henderson. Selecting Barclay was a misguided attempt to include a creator methinks.

Lingard was decent last night but he was probably the only one who was half decent.

Mini/crazy golf or a par 3 course is not considered a hole in one but congratulations anyway. I am also guessing like your football club you rented the clubs rather than buying your own.

From the preview of the England Switzerland affair shortly to kick off:
All of which is to say that the mood before the match feels a little subdued. There are even unconfirmed reports that Tommy Robinson hasn’t chinned anyone.

That can be just the green fees for some courses. So if we see you commenting on how much you love Big Bertha its not a term of endearment to your wife/girlfriend?

I was wondering why there isn’t a thread in The Maple Leaf.

I’m not a sports fan and am not watching the game, but I am following the score.

Go Raptors

I trust you haven’t been waiting for hours in the rain James

I didnt know who these Raptors are. Maybe its a soccer team in Canada. Maybe its the womans team in the World Cup. No, Google tells me its Bouncyball. The golf was bad enough.

Not many true Torontonians in "The Maple Leaf". I've only just seen this post but as you are well aware I did put something up in the Leaf!

No other comments though so everyone else must be busy watching!

Yup. A game of four halves and you score by utilizing the hand of god many times during a game!

I did get some Canadian lads in my local singing "Basketball is coming home" on Friday when Toronto went 3-1 up in the series.
