At age 72 I have finally ceased to be interested in all things Three Lions. In chasing the big bucks the FA have decided that as a terrestrial football fan I no longer matter. I will stick with my true love that is PAFC.

We have so much potential on the fringe of making us a very good side. Foden, Greenwood, James, Calvert-Lewis, Grealish, Henderson(gk), Sancho for example.
Southgate has had a very difficult 6 months where he has had to make tough decisions about discipline.
It was obvious that Kane was not match fit last night and we certainly missed Sterling.
I am not ready to give up on England any more than I would give up on Argyle if we went through a bad patch.
Argyle is my club; England is my country.

The 2018 WC was so overrated it's untrue. We lost twice to Belgium and once to a better Croatia team. We scraped through on pens vs Colombia and were blessed with an easy group and a knockout game with an extremely average Swedish team. That was it.
The players are rotated so much now in meaningless friendlies that the so-called 'pride' of representing your country is dished out to every Tom, Dick and Harry that happens to have a good month for their clubs. Oh, and of course, when there's a global pandemic, we have several players who can't follow simple rules. I'm sorry, I don't care how young they are, if you're picked for your country, you follow the simple rules.
