So the two potential interpretations are... 1- you said something that was clearly false but it actually had some much deeper meaning nobody else can see and you yourself won't explain 2- you said something clearly false, now realise it makes you look stupid and are trying to walk it back by claiming some other meaning.
I'll leave you to decide which king; if it helps, what I was saying isn't at all "deep", it's actually pretty obvious. Hence my exasperation at the replies.

Why don't you just say exactly what you do mean in posting this, Westcoast? My assumption was you were making a direct comparison between what England are trying to do and what Farke is trying to do. But do correct me if I'm wrong.
Thank you Fuzzar, no correction needed (except, for "Farke", substitute the club). As to your opening comment, I simply thought the Southgate quote was sufficiently specific.

Re: In a nutshell

If it helps some of you, the steamrolling lesser teams probably wasnt the focal point in that quote for what Westcoast is referring too.

Where I kind of have a problem is that Farke has abandoned some of his playing ethics because our fans dont understand the concept of not smashing it up the channels ala Lambert.

Re: In a nutshell

We finished below 1p5wich last season H. We’re performing st relegation level this season. Hardly a ringing endorsement of the coach’s tactics thus far. Indeed, if he really is that easily swayed by the incredibly gentle FCR crowd he’s probably not in the right place!

There's lesser sides and then there's Panama.

Ipswich would find it hard not to beat them...

Re: In a nutshell

As far as I can see the op added the part about steamrollering smaller teams, Southgate didn't say it.

If you'd just left it at the quote, the post may have made some sense.

It is quite common to hear England referred to as "flat track bullies" (steamroller/flat track, right?), on account of their record of qualifying relatively easily for international tournaments, only to be found out and exit ignominiously in the early rounds. Compare our recent record of reaching the EPL only to end up chastened back in the Championship. I'm sure those with any interest in doing so can follow the line of thought from there.
