|A genuine Question|
at 23:31 2 Jul 2019
I'd really like your opinion's on the English Psyche after yet another semi final loss today in the football. Why can't our sports teams, with all the ability in the world, quite finish the Job? I know from my own experience growing up playing football that if we were the better team in a game, our parents would tell us to give the other team a chance etc. I also got hammered by my Dad after a game because I kept flicking the ball over the defenders heads and running round them. I was told that "everyone hates show offs".
When I moved to Oz many years ago I was amazed at the difference in mindset regarding sport, especially kids sport. I remember when we won the Rugby World cup in 2003 that team was so focused and almost Unengland like. Can we repeat that in the near future?

I was watching the game last night and Norwich were so well drilled. Fluent passing ,when one player moved, another filled a gap etc. Each player knew their role and excelled in it. When they lost the ball 3 players closed our 1 player and won it back.
We were totally static, like a team of strangers. No one knew what to do with the ball in possesion and no one knew what to do when we didn't have it. I'd love to be a fly on the wall and actually see what we do in the week?

Heard this a few times now from supporters. Can anyone who's been to any friendlies please explain how he has us set up. Playing from the back? 2 x def midfielders etc?
Patient build up? Quick transition to attack?
Thanks in advance.
