England vs. Germany - Meaningless "Friendly"

England vs. Germany - Meaningless "Friendly"

#1

England scratch around the Premier League to give a few brave battlers their “day in the sun” or in reality “evening under floodlights” against Germany’s finest also-rans.

Should make a unique bloodless rememberance with both sides wearing poppies.


#2

Haha…ITV tater keeps calling Abrahams, Loftus-Cheek. :lou_facepalm_2:

Highlight so far for me.


#3

Phil Jones off injured…Joe Gomez on…who?


#4

Promising, young, home-grown* Liverpool centreback/right back.

*Home-grown as in Charlton grew him at their home and Liverpool bought him.


#5

I swear Hoddle just called Draxler Dracula.


#6

Pickford already showing he is better than Hart.


#7

But he’s no Forster.


#8

0 - 0 Uh…great result…discuss. On second thoughts, let’s not discuss.


#9

Thought they played ok against a full strength Germany , Loftus-Cheek stood out, Pickford was good.


#10

It appears 3 regular posters on here watched it.

That’s the real talking point.


#11

Pointless and meaningless - If the game mattered in any way, Germany would have battered us.


#12

The BBC’s report headline

England hold Germany to draw.

We were playing at home and if the right players and manger were involved should have stuffed them 4-2 like back in 66. :lou_lol:

but all we got was a tepid 0-0 draw.

In my defence I was talking, drinking and reading at various stages during the game. If there were raised voices from the commentary I would look up, watch the replay and relate anything of note to all you good Sotonians.

I did note pre-match, half and full time.

Hope you appreciated the comprehensive coverage. :lou_lol:


#14

Nothing else on.

It was ok as you say, for a makeshift team. We had a few chances but Germany carved us open easily on occasions and you got the impression that they could step up a gear or two if they wanted. Agree about Loftus-Road and Pickford. McGuire looked good too and Bertrand was lively when he came on. I suppose a 0-0 draw was a fitting result given how close to Armistice Day it was.


#16

Really?

I thought we won that one…


#17

‘Full strenth Germany’- hate to dissapoint you but their ‘first’ team will contain, Kroos, Khadiera, Muller, Boateng and a couple of others. Germany have a large pool of younger players, their biggest challenge is actually going to be finding the right side and perhaps a little light in experienced defensive cover… If you takeout Ozil’ and Hummels caps, ther rest only averaged a low number too…

I didn’t even realise there was a game on tbf.

Seems I didn’t miss anything…
