  1. Dean McNamara: John Stones, am surprised that no-one has gone in for him. He is still a quality player. As a United fan, would be happy to see him at OT.

    VERY interesting start…

  2. Get Involved – what do your club need before the window shuts?

    There’s now less than four weeks left in the transfer window and so far it’s been busy with Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle and Sheffield United in particular being proactive.

    But, you get the feeling a number of clubs have still got business to do.

    We want to know: what position(s) your club needs to strengthen? If you have particular players in mind feel free to name drop them too.

  3. What’s over the line and what’s close to being done?

    Yesterday was another busy day in the transfer window.

    Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure joined Everton for around £20m while Newcastle, who have done some excellent business in the last few days, brought in left-back Jamal Lewis from Norwich for around £15m.

    We also heard that Aston Villa are closing in on the signing of Brentford striker Ollie Watkins after a fee of £28m that could rise to £33m. We’ll keep you updated if that one progresses throughout the day.

  4. Draxler to Leeds? Stones to fight for his Man City place?

    Those are just two of the latest rumours doing the rounds…

    We’ve collated all of the best transfer speculation over here. There’s an interesting one about Leicester looking likely to beat Manchester United to a signing too…

  5. Post update

    Right, let’s move on from the disappointment of England’s performance last night.

    We’ll shift our focus to the latest football news, transfer deals and rumours now.

  6. Post update

    Can Jack Grealish, James Maddison and Dele Alli have good England careers while the formation is 4-3-3?

    That’s the key question. All of them, ideally, would want to play off the striker, which isn’t really possible with the way England and Gareth Southgate set up at the moment.

    But, if you change your formation to accommodate one of them do you damage the ability and threat you get from Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho?

    Who would be a football manager, eh?

    SMS Message: Southgate needs to play at least one attack minded player in midfield. He’s too set on playing everyone out wide, for example Mount and Grealish. Bringing Alli in would be a start despite his low form last year. from Anon

    Southgate needs to play at least one attack minded player in midfield. He’s too set on playing everyone out wide, for example Mount and Grealish. Bringing Alli in would be a start despite his low form last year.

  8. Jamie Savin: Playing a proper left back and not playing two defensively minded midfielders might help.

    Playing three centre backs and then Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips in front of them, against Denmark, was a bit overkill, wasn’t it?

  9. Post update

    As a Man City fan, Andy, England can keep their hands off Pep.

    Thank you very much.

  10. Get Involved – Is Southgate the problem?

    Text 81111 (UK only)

    SMS Message: Southgate has done well at bringing in youth and giving them a chance. However he is not a top class coach and the lack of creativity is there for all to see. Let’s face it he was the cheap option when hired. England were lucky to get to the World Cup semi when other big nations were knocked out. If we had played a decent team we would have easily been found out.
    Someone like Pep could take England to a new level but unfortunately that’s never likely to happen. Good luck to Gareth his staff and all the squad but I feel we have the players but not a winning formulation. from Andy from Oxford

  11. Ronaldo reaches international century

    Elsewhere in the Nations League, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th and 101st Portugal goal in their 2-0 win away at Sweden.

    You can watch some of those goals below and find out more about how those goals have come about – i.e left foot, right foot, head – here.

    There’s probably a reason that person has stayed anonymous…

    It’s easy to forget that Harry Kane had scored 10 goals in his last six England games before this international break. He’d also chipped in with five assists in that time.

    Oh, and he had a goal incorrectly ruled out on Saturday.

    It’s a bit early to be dropping him, I think…

  13. Get Involved – should England drop Harry Kane?

    Text 81111 (UK only)

    SMS Message: I think the answer to some of England’s problems could lie in first of all, drop Kane. He isn’t a grafter. He can score sometimes of course, but often doesn’t really turn up. He does not appear to be inspirational. He often waits around for the ball. He’s had his day. Nowadays successful teams are full of players who run and fight for every ball. Kane is not like that. Players like Rashford, Sancho, Ings and some of the other youngsters work hard and feed off each other, working well as a team. Sterling does that too. Get Henderson back in to organise and regenerate the midfield. His passing forward is masterful. Obviously when he’s fit. Play Alexander Arnold and then use him in the way Liverpool do. Let him be creative. Make goals.
    That’s it from me!! from Anon

  14. Foden and Greenwood need to ‘rebuild trust’ – Southgate

    Manager Gareth Southgate says that “trust needs to be rebuilt” between himself and Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood after the pair were sent home for breaching coronavirus quarantine guidelines in Iceland.

    Manchester City midfielder Foden, 20, and Manchester United forward Greenwood, 18, both missed the goalless draw in Denmark and Southgate will help them “to rebuild” before they can be picked again.

    “I’ve got a lot to think about, trust needs to be rebuilt and that takes time,” Southgate said.

    “There has to be consequence to what happened and then we have to help them rebuild. That doesn’t mean you hold that against them forever.”

    Gumbo74: Too early for some. Coady will bed in after a while – TBH our options in defence are not great. Grealish showed why he should be in the team. Class act on the pitch. Could easily be at FCB or RM and would not look out of place. System and availability issues did not help.

    SMS Message: We can all see the lack of a link between defence, midfield and attack. Not just last night but long before. Its OK having three great attackers but if there is no service it won’t work. Grealish surely needs to be given the chance to be that link. from Neil Coleman

  16. How did the other home nations get on?

    There was mixed fortunes for the other home nations in the Nations League too.

    Northern Ireland picked up a good draw in Romania before being thrashed 5-1 by Norway at Windsor Park.

    Scotland made a good start with their win against a makeshift Czech Republic side seeing them top the group after a draw in Israel.

    Two late winners sees Wales lead group B4 leaving Republic of Ireland with work to do.

  17. Francesca Gunn: It was such a bad game. I mean why go defensive against Denmark! we have one of the best attacks in years and he goes defensive. Where is the England from the World Cup? This is the old England before World Cup, barely squeaking by, no teamwork and boring.
