    Sterling looks like one of those players whose first, second and third thought is how he can score. Setting up a team mate is almost a last resort. Is this what he does at club level ?

    Seriously does Hodgson have any impressive performances or results in a tournament with England? Beating Wales 2-1 is probably the highlight and even that was almost a disaster.

    Sterling doing his role so far, not sure where Sturridge is playing but it's not on the right.

    Erm we were decent against Sweden at Euro 2012? Probably about on par with beating Wales?

    It's all so predictable isn't it?

    These are all excellent players, by and large. A couple of been below par - Sterling & Kane in the group stages, Hart throughout - but I won't have it that they don't care so clearly the setup is the problem. Either that or we are just too damn naive, which would again point at the coaching.

    I can believe we will turn this around, but if we don't score by the hour then I'm going to flick that switch from optimism to eternal gloom

    Edit - excellent probably overstating it. But these guys tend to do the business in the Prem for some of the top sides.

    Just as bad is the low bar of performance he seems to find acceptable. Every game he's delighted with our high possession rate, he seems to expect us to just eventually score goals because of it.

    Sturridge is meant to be drifting in. He's not a wide player.

    My advice is to flick the switch from ITV to whatever's on the Beeb or C4 tonight.

    Not what Roy said pre-match interview. He said he'd picked Sterling and Sturridge to provide some width. Obviously on a quick break or there's space then they come inside.
