Gareth's taken a beating since Friday's 0-0 draw against Scotland. His unadventurous tactics and ultra-defensive team selections have already dampened our spirits and have the nation doubting whether football is coming home after all.

Or maybe, just maybe... he's a calculated genius and knew that one group game win would see us through, giving the squad time to gel and get up to full fitness while potentially avoiding any of the big dogs until the quarter-finals.

Will you be baying for Czech blood tonight or relishing another possession-based safety-first 0-0 bore draw?

Southgate needs to send them out to win and show what we can do. We do have lots of options going forward but he's too afraid to use them properly. I'd love to see Grealish start as well as Foden and Mount and just have one holding midfielder.

Win - we have to play the best teams sooner or later so why be frightened of them now?

Attack from the kick off, get an early penalty for Kane to score and then that's us flying from then on all the way through to the final.

Easy!

I can't see him changing much because reaching the quarter-finals will be deemed a more successful tournament than going out in the last 16. Finishing second in the group and facing lesser competition is probably the best way to achieve it.

However, he has to figure out how to get the best out of Kane so maybe he will make a change or two. Foden hasn't been great so maybe he will start Sterling on the right and play Grealish on the left. Can't see much changing other than that given that he will be delighted with a draw anyway.

Be serious. I'd pick you over Stirling.

Gareth will be Gareth. Whatever he does tonight, it'll be safety first come the knockout round.

I'm rather seething that Gareth is in charge of the best young footballing talent we've had in years and years. Now is the time to go all out attack, instead we're stuck with a negative Nigel.

Bielsa would have a field day with this much talent at his disposal. Go for it, we're already through anyway.

I couldn't agree more. Gareth has one club on his CV and he got them relegated.

HOW THE FOOK IS HE IN CHARGE OF THE ENGLAND TEAM??????

Can only see a tight defensive unit going out against the Germans, Southgate is a pussy, as has been mentioned before, how the fuck is this useless prick being allowed to manage this amount of talent we have? most international managers have been prolific in the game, won trophies, won leagues in their playing days, this clown has a mickey mouse cup medal to his name, and a relegation and sacking on his CV, he makes Phil Parkinson look like Pep.

Well he’ll be judged by what he does in this tournament and if he fails then his prospects won’t look good. Just getting out of the group isn’t what’s expected so unless he wins tomorrow, I suspect he’ll be toast. We do have a good attacking team but I’m not overly impressed with our defence personally, despite conceding few goals. I don’t blame him for using a cautious approach because he doesn’t want to risk going gung ho against the teams in our half and if we can beat the Germans I think we’ll have a really good chance of winning the thing overall.

Sadly, even if we get beaten tomorrow, I suspect Gareth will keep his job for the World Cup.

Sometimes you have to be brave and just go for it. Tomorrow is one of those times. We won't beat Germany with a defensive mentality.

The FA have already said he'll get the World Cup no matter what, so he knows the score, and will never change his one dimensional, defensive and to be blunt, boring style of play, he's just a shite manager with a  wasted talented squad

Well that's just spoiled my day.

Why on Earth would the FA announce that before the Euros? Talk about a lack of motivation.

The Football Association  will ask Gareth Southgate to stay on as England manager beyond the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Southgate needs to be brave and leave in Saka and Grealish as they will frighten their defence to death. I reckon he'll put them back on the bench though.

Klinsmann can't believe we don't play Sancho more and i agree, we have so much attacking talent that we should be looking to take the game to teams instead of sitting back with 2 holding midfielders.
