    That analytics is behind tactics is the stupidest thing I have ever read, and whoever wrote this does not understand what analytics is.

    Analytics are tools, not a philosophy.
    As tools they can add the necessary nuance and sophistication in an already decided approach/philosophy.
    But they can't invent a philosophy for someone who does not have.

    And oc Southgate had a philosophy, in line with pretty cagey and boring football: not to ever concede.
    In that respect, he did fine. His football was crap, though, and wasted the talent of many of his footballers

    Lukaku had an okay tournament, but i'd have both Ronaldo and Benzema above him.

    I think his decisions were stupid and invited failure.
    That must be the dumbest things i ever read about football (not your post describing it, obviously).
    Sure there could be other reasons for such decision. Such as politics (we're talking about kneelers) our Southgate simply being daft (most believable).

    Why even? All the media is owned by 4-5 big corps that in turn are owned by the same small group of ultra rich oligarchs that all attend the same coven and has the same intentions on how to handle peasants. Forget about "free press" meme. It's current year.
