This thread is about the England football team, Sunny old bean, not how you prefer to be beasted.

I hope you're not wasting precious Hampshire water during the drought on water-heavy crops, such as spinach, on your allotment, old bean.

I like the kid with the double barrelled name. He is strong and very quick.

I trust all are feeling a bit fooked off right now.

Usual protagonists just not good enough.

J Henderson. If he “passes” a ball further than 10 yards the next event is a throw in to the other side. No pace to speak of etc. Should never have been there and clapping/shouting are not football skills.

Raheem Diomande. Apparently Croatia were scared shitless of his pace and skill. Explains why he was brought off, though what Rashford does as an alternative is a guess.

Ali pounced about again, Jessie tried to bend one when putting laces through the ball was the only true option. I guess a straight shot doesn’t look so good on You Tube as a bender, no pun intended.

Walker caught out as the pretend centre half and Stones, er, caught out by being lazy for their second goal.

Young? Fook me.

All in all, not good enough. Young team blah blah. Results count and coasting past Swindon and edging past Colombia and Tunisia, those giants of international football tell the tale.

Opportunity given away, Croatia are all right, but not brilliant.

Doubly pissed off as a large bet left my account for the bookie on an England qualification for the final. I should have known better of course.

I’d say I told Gull so but he knows. Still, only 4 weeks to go before City mount their promotion challenge, what’s to be down about?

For myself, no, I'm not fooked off. And the simple reason is that this team have exceeded expectations. Yes, they were finally found wanting, not least of all for goals from open play, the lack of a Modric in midfield (do we have one of those players?), and the lack of a Plan B.

But come on, how many years is it since you read reports of England games and there was a joy in reading them. My favourite was a description of 'Arry's goal. "was met with such force it should be accompanied by a soundtrack, the sound of a Victorian wardrobe falling over"

In four years time, who of the reigning "kids" world cup winners will have progressed?

And for all those saying we didn't beat anybody, we did a whole better than the great footballing nemesis, who never mind being tonked by South Korea, looked like Quaddie FC would have given them a game. Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar. Jesus wept if you are looking for disappointment, there are three utter fookin waste of spaces for their national teams.

Fooked off? Nah, it's been a blast for me.

ps not coz i made close on 2k from match betting and the abundance of free bets bookies threw at the job.

They exceeded expectations, despite some imperfections. For me, some of the faffing about at the back almost turned into disaster too many times, but I guess improvement will come with experience for those players. Kane didn't look like a goal scorer in the last two games; I wonder if he was carrying an injury. Instead he almost became the midfield dynamo that none of the other supposed midfielders were anyway near to being. The other supposedly creative midfield/forward players had trouble stringing two passes together in all but 1.5 of the games. Yesterday's second half consisted of defenders passing the ball about instead of hoofing it a decent distance, before the ball reached the goalie who would then manage to hoof it half a decent distance under pressure. Didn't quite understand that tactic. The second and third and fourth halves against Croatia had none of the earlier build-up from the back. Just long-balls and hoofs that the little lads up front couldn't do anything with against the taller sturdier Croatians.

Despite the bafflement, they reached a semi and got the public on their side. Maybe the players are less dividing than some past ones. Maybe the older alleged journalists whose favourite game was Destroy The England Manager have resigned. No, there was Allardyce... they're just biding their time. I hope they die first, nastily, painfully, etc. Only Laaandan Boy Venables ever got a free pass from that set of heinous anti-patriotic bastards.

Anyway. A young side, hope for the future, etc, etc. Not sure what chance we have in temperatures of 200C+ in Qatar, a choice of sheer folly and corruption and death, selected on bribe basis by the evil and is-he-still-alive-the-bastard Blatter. I hope Blatter is forever haunted by all the slaves who died building the Qatar stadiums, now only 4 and a half years from obsolescence.

Ah but! Some say, we got the easy side of the draw, so we were lucky not good! Yeah, right, think FA Cup 2014, thank your gods and hold your tongue.

Well done and thank you, England manager and players. Be more experienced and better in 2 and 4 years. Ta.

As for Jacob Arry Maguire, well done, you were a tower of strength. Thank you, good luck, and believe in yourself.

I should also mention that I didn't notice a single referee reach the abysmal lows of some past World Cup officials (though I admit I didn't watch many games). Perhaps VAR kept them on the straight and narrow, despite its failings. Perhaps.

Tell me what? That England reached a WC semi final for the first time in 28 years... Practically the team that got knocked out the Euros by Iceland and were fancied to be challenging Tunisia to get out the group.

You carry whinging, Cheats old bean, I was thoroughly pleased with the performance. Croatia's midfield was better and dictated the game after 20 minutes. Hardly unexpected. Someone like an on-form Wilshere would have made the difference and stopped the defence from passing among themselves before long-balling it. All in all, bodes well for the future, if you can leave off committing suicide due to self-enforced misery.

Sterling has been a constant threat every game he has played in, putting pressure running at defences. His final product was poor at an international level, but I expect Manchester are happy to pay £200 a week for someone who scored 18 goals from 30 appearances last season.

It's been a great competition, England surpassed themselves and the future is bright.

No idea about Hull though - don't you have a different transfer window to the rest of the professional leagues, that begins in mid-September, where you pay several millions for a player that gets permanently injured after 5 games and then rely on some loan player whom is never heard of again after the season ends.

Try leaving off the gambling, sit back and enjoy an Aspalls or two during the game instead and life will feel better.

My favourite Devon ciders are small, locally owned cideries, so they are difficult to get abroad. Sometimes see St Austell and Cornish Orchards, from next door, which I like. Aspalls were bought by a US conglomerate earlier this year, who are exporting them to Asia and Northern Europe... so much easiery to get hold of (well, I can here). I prefer the draught dry Suffolk cyder - the premium versions, although stronger, are too fizzy and light-tasting.

The US conglomerate will probably explain Aspalls seemingly appearing from nowhere in the supermarkets, and the exporting of the stuff.

Anyone who's done a FA level one could see where it went wrong for England last night, Southgate to slow to react to the changes Croatia made after the break ,couldn't understand sterling being hooked ,1st change should have been Delph for Walker ,agree not a CB at fault for the goal against Panama and the Croatia equaliser Delph on to give us a extra man in midfield and to cut of the supply line from there right full back Southgate seems obsessed with 3-5-2 other subs Rose for Young Dier for Henderson which he did Loftus Cheek or Rashford on for Ali in ET ,relying to much on Kane and corners for goals Ali ,Sterling Rashford Lingard 2 goals between them out of 12 France 2-0 in the final

Could be worse, Francis old bean, we had Trevor Morley commentating on the game live from Croydon Box Park. He does Premier League commentary as well, where he understands Norwegian but always answers in English.

Hull fans, if there are any left, may remember him scoring at boothferry park in one of the first games of the 1990s. His career was eclipsed by him getting stabbed by his Norwegian then-wife when she allegedly caught him being beasted by Ian Bishop.

Tell me what?


ESSEX GULL


Phew, where to start!

Jordie “ave-it” Henderson not being able to cut the mustard in International football. Raheem “Diomande” Sterling running in to cull de sacs and not scoring any goals. Etc etc.

It may have been entertaining, if you like lots of cheating, rolling around when not touched, time wasting in the extreme (shaking hands with the whole crowd before walking backwards off the pitch). VAR was a farce. Why employ Stevie Wonder to view VAR and yet not have Kent Walton as technical advisor is a mystery.

Fook is fooked. So long as it looks good on instaface it’s ok. Stands full of tourists who have never been to a game before. Cool.

England overachieved. Southgate will be out inside two years. Phil Brown in.

Aspalls? What’s that - stongbow in a small bottle with a picture of a winking devil on the label no doubt. Cost 7 quid or something like that to show it’s a quality drink. Stick to Mansfield Mild, proper blokes guzzle when stood on Ferensaway waiting for your coach to Bolton away.

Well done to Potential, bashing the bookies. Hope they paid out, unlike some unreputable bastards on the market! Down a few hundred, thanks to Germany and Spain not turning up, but also England for being galant losers, again.

Open golf on soon. Rose for the Jug, though fancy Fowler too.

Just heard Conte got sacked. Think he will come to Hull?
