Fookin ell, we are gonna win it!

Smashed a top notch Tunisia team by boring em to defeat. Loving Stones’ massive waft of thin air 17 inches from the goal.

Funniest game I’ve seen for a while. Still, the lads stuck together, or some shite.

Bring on Panama for a stern 1-0 thrashing.

Zzzzzzz

Upon what do you base your supposition? What kind of scoreline would you classify as "murdered"?

Thought The England did ok for their first game and were unlucky not to get more goals - slightly odd refereeing decisions led to this.

It's a new breed of England players finally. Thankfully the stars of ca. 2003-2016 who were unable to replicate their form on the international stage have gone and been replaced by a younger, hungrier, less secure, less experienced mob.

It had become a trend to slate every England player and his performance, no matter what, and this time has also passed, which is good as it got boring to read and listen to the whinging and complaining from armchair managers and the 'I could have been a professional' crowd. Can sit back and just enjoy the game for what it is now. Pure entertainment.

We’re trying to play a style of football which will lead us open to better sides who are more proficient in that style. I know why and it’s to make us a better team, but I’d like to win games now...

Against the likes of Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Germany etc, we need to be far more defensively minded and be prepared to play the the long game - which admittedly hasn’t worked well previously. It’s unlikely to work but being overly attacking or playing possession based football, I’ve a feeling things will lead to us being embarrassed. What I mean by that is having little possession and made to look like we’re not trying - when in actual fact the other team are just better, not necessarily the score line.

I think however Southgate has done a decent job. And England are moving in a positive direction. However we’re miles off winning a tournament and that’s something I would like to see.

We have to be far more clinical against better sides. We missed some golden chances. We’d be lucky to get one of them against better opposition then the France C team and missing open goals, scuffing shots etc will not be good enough.

90% of the squad are coonts. Sterling, Ali and to ensure it’s not an Alan Sugar thing, Vardy. Typical kiddies who place Dallas style mansions and the latest Ferrari way ahead of a winners medal. They are not that good anyway. I liked Kane until he claimed a goal for an effort that grazed a particle of air near his body on the back of his daughters life. Takes some doing that and I trust his missus kicked him in the cock for that.

The chances they missed, a joke. Lingard, Sterling - couldn’t hit a cows arse with a banjo. To ensure it’s not an Alan Sugar thing, Stones had a triffic air shot form 3 yards out.

It’s good fun to slate England because they mostly deserve it. Still, as long as the boys stick together as a group...... Right.

I’d be very surprised to see Germany or Argentina win the tournament this year.

The best teams so far have been Spain and Portugal, who are yet to play an “inferior” side who are prepared to defend for their lives and nick a goal on the counter attack.


So three of those are out.

Spain, then? 

Now then...

Reality is; this is the most open World Cup for years.

Not only that, it's been one of the best World Cups too. 

Now then...

it's only a good world cup after numerous plastic chairs are thrown around the town square - until then its failed to generate any passion


on a side note - I see Carbonado - aka the black diamond - has finally realised that the ball should go into the net rather than sitting on his arse rubbing his head - God help him when the oppo realise they only have to knock into his head and that's him not worrying the score sheet any more

The only time we will playing Portugal and Germany in the near future will be in friendlies. Aren't we doing badly? 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

I see the direction Gareth is taking us.

I see the game plan too.

In fact, we even can adapt and have a genuine plan B, for the first time (ever?)

It's a youthful side, so rightly, the criticism should be minimal from all and sundry.

It's actually been refreshing watching England in this World Cup without the usual millstone round our necks.

If we get to the Quarters by beating Columbia, we've had some genuine success IMO. 

Now then...
