There's just no intent, it's such a limited style of play. They were going over the first half highlights talking about "big" opportunities, of the 3 one was a header from a corner and the other was a shot from outside the area. Not one pundit held Boothroyd to task and questioned the selection, the lack of attacking emphasis, just went on about how it's been a good half etc etc. Blind as a bat.

Congratulations to Aidy Bothroyd.

Coaching a side providing him with the tools to do great things and his side has managed one shot on target in 180mins.

Played two, lost two, bottom of the group and crashing out at the group stage of another tournament.

Absolutely inept. Get him gone.

I think Frank lampard could make a good under 21 manager. I like eddie Howe but Lampard is probably more up to date with modern football.

Neither would manage the u21's when they can get Prem jobs

You're probably right. However Howe was in management for a very long time. He might want something with less stress for a while.

I know everyone is gonna laugh but I would consider Rooney. He has improved Derby and I think he would be good with the youngsters. I would certainly consider giving him a two year contract and seeing how he does

After all that praise, France are out xD 

Netherlands have some decent players themselves, but still, that French squad should have had enough to win.

Boadu (scored the winner in stoppage time), Stengs, Botman, Kluivert in their squad. But France had quality in every position of the pitch. Still messed it up.

The French team are quite overrated, they didnt really offer much the whole match apart from the last 15 minutes.    Botman and Boadu are very underrated.

 

I said from the start that I think we will win this tournament due to how well we have been playing from qualifying, even though we lost a few players to the senior squad, I think we should have enough still to win it.

Great performance and a great team spirit tonight. The players really pushed each other. Ridle Baku should definitely be with the main national team. Such a talented full back. Plenty of good crosses and defensive work from him tonight. Niklas Dorsch was really impressive as well. Won so many battles and acted like a real leader. Great work by Stefan Kuntz to form such a good team again!
