Very dodgy but belated revenge was was sweet nevertheless on a certain Ronald Koeman.

Re: Euro 2024

Disappointing, but I think the better team won in the end.

England dont seem to bother playing until they are a goal down.

Re: Euro 2024

Spain were indeed the better team and you could see that throughout the tournament.
We need some new fresh players and a new manager for next time.

Re: Euro 2024

Spain men win the Euros; Spain women win the World Cup; Carlos Alcaraz wins Wimbledon. They know something we don't know.

And there's nothing wrong with England player quality; it's coaching that's the problem imho.

Other way round its the players, not the coaches. Successive Eng managers have done no better. Southgate has best record since Alf Ramsey. The Premiership always comes before international football in this country, hence we under perform.

If only Brian Clough had been given a go *sigh*. Oh well, get Brendan Rogers, he knows Spain and he knows how to win.

Re: Euro 2024

Gareth Southgate should have heeded the warnings from Monty Python.."No one expects the Spanish wing position ".

Its even more of a problem when it costs around £10,000 more for someone English to get your pro license and to get a UEFA A badge.

https://www.theguardian.com/football...d-updates-live

Quote:
The UEFA A badge is the highest level of coaching badge there is. In 2017 there were 15,089 UEFA A qualified coaches, as opposed to only 1,796 in the UK as per the Guardian.

This number of UEFA A qualified coaches in the UK is also significantly lower than Germany, and lower than even Poland. And this is a problem of the FA’s own making, as it costs around £10,000 more to get your pro license and to get UEFA A qualified in this UK than it does in Spain. Having spoken to a few people interested in going down that path, another huge issue is that the number of spaces at St George’s Park is alarmingly limited and often swallowed up by ex-pros alone.

The consequence of this is huge. Looking at the candidates for the England manager, it is slim pickings. It’s no wonder no English manager has won the Premier League. You can only contrast it to the abundance of coaching talent that the Spanish and Germans have.

We are reducing the chance for both people and for unique ideas to flourish in a way they have abroad, as this goes beyond managers but will also affect wider coaching teams.
