Hey Ed001,

I was wondering what your view on the whole Mount and Grealish situation on the English national team is, as It seems like Mount is getting quite a bit of criticism just for being picked consistently.

{Ed001's Note - I don't get the fuss, it shouldn't be an either or situation. Mount doesn't deserve stick for simply being a good player and getting picked. It should be the gimp in his waistcoat getting the stick for being an utterly useless manager.}

It’s simple really play Mason as an 8 you’ve got a quality player, play him as a winger he’s nowhere near as good. Grealish is a better Left Winger drifting in. Let’s hope Waistcoat keeps it that way. It took Frank a while to work it out.

Thanks for the reply!

I completely agree. I’m no football expert, but I don’t see why they have to be mutually exclusive, they have very different abilities on the pitch. That being said though, what is your opinion on Grealish in general?

{Ed001's Note - the ability is there but he struggles to actually make anything of his ability due to a lack of intelligence. He is miles behind Maddison imo and that is who he should be up against for a place. There is no doubt he could be exceptional, but he is too slow to spot the pass most of the time and so ends up taking an extra touch.}

I agree Ed we have such a wealth of players going forward yet he plays five at the back that would be OK if we had good Cbs
4 2 3 1 for England Henderson and rice protecting the 2 cbs
And let the front four do what they want Mount at ten.

Sorry while I'm at it why does he insist on playing youngsters just for the sake of it
There is players that shouldn't be anywhere near that squad.

{Ed001's Note - and there is his obsession with shoehorning as many right-backs as possible into a squad. The guy is just not strong enough to pick the right team, because it would mean leaving out some of the better players. He would rather force 4 right-backs in than leave any of them out. He is weak.}

Agreed enjoy your weekend mate.

ed001 always a gd read.

what would be your england lineups?

{Ed001's Note - Henderson in goal.

Back four is difficult picking a right-back, all have their good and bad points, but I would go with Wan-Bissaka. Holgate and any of the 3 Brighton centre-backs, depending on who fits best with Holgate, as I am not sure if he prefers left or right-side. Webster I would prefer alongside him, but he is right-sided so Holgate would have to play left then. Chilwell is about the only choice on the left really, so long as he is behaving.

Rice in front of them, and Henderson in midfield alongside either Maddison or Mount. Depends on the opposition really, as Mount is better against tougher opponents, Maddison does not work hard enough to trust against the stronger nations.

The attack is Kane plus Sterling and Grealish. I am not the biggest fan of Grealish, he does take too long on the ball but that is not so much of a problem in international football as the games are slower. I personally think he will be better in international football than he is in the Prem as he will get much more time on the ball. Lallana and James Rodriguez have shown that players that take those extra touches can shine in internationals as the intensity is so much lower.}

I don’t see England having a formidable team that can win the Euro or World Cup in the next 75 years going by this culture of changing the team for every game.
