Here's something England fans won't have heard before: The manager's tactics are completely old-fashioned, predictable and halt the team's ability to play smart football.
This trend starts with the senior team and has trickled its way through the youth ranks. We saw it with Stuart Pearce's abysmal Under-21 side and are witnessing the same mishaps when Peter Taylor's U-20s take to the field.
England couldn't handle simple passing and movement during the first half against Chile. Two rows of four allowed the South American side space to play intricate, free-flowing football. The Young Lions exerted a lack of pressure, affording technical workers plenty of room to pull strings.
Such deficiencies also showed in the final half an hour against Iraq, a game which saw England throw away a 2-0 lead to draw with unfancied opposition.
Despite decent spells in both matches, Taylor needs to let his players go about their business with extra flexibility. His team shouldn't be content with fulfilling primary duties and need to work harder when under pressure.
