  1. And were the the good old days when people had respect for their elders!
  2. I’m not seeing what Mount is doing so badly to piss everybody off. England are losing the physical battle and the Americans are happy to swarm us in their box. It’s difficult to play against. I’m not sure if Rashford coming on means we will drop back 10-15 yards and try to draw them out a bit. Assuming they bite.
  3. England don’t look amazing but I’m not buying into the doom and gloom just yet. The States seem happy with seven men behind the ball when England are in possession and England’s ‘get to the six yard line and cut it back to the penalty spot’ tactic seems doomed to failure. We’ve got to allow them out a bit more but England have such a soft underbelly that I’m not filled with confidence. I think I might be looking for Jack Grealish off the bench for Sterling.
  4. People seem to be as sure stop clocks are the answer now as they were that VAR would solve everything five years ago. It’s definitely not all being changed at the behest of broadcasters, right?
  5. If England win tonight then I suspect Southgate will rotate against Wales because the group will be won and it’s better to conserve the energy of some and give much needed minutes to others while it’s possible. I’m sure there will be talk of collusion given we are both British but fuck that.
  6. Just for those who haven’t seen the red.
  7. Just keep playing. Certain things happen at certain times and the game is a race between your level and the clock. After a while you’ll start seeing that some items combine with others and some of them are ridiculously powerful.
  8. Loads of unattached players have been to the World Cup. It’s overshadowed by the headbutt but Zidane scored in the final without a club.
  9. If they are part of the Japanese camp then does it matter? One thing I forgot I like about watching the World Cup is watching it with lapsed fans. The game is on in the staff room at work: colleague - "I like the look of that Valverde, who does he play for?" me - "Real Madrid." colleague - "ah. I was gonna say the Villa should sign him, but maybe not then."
  10. My guy became Henry Hoover. Agonisingly got boxed in and died at something like 29:30 but boy did I take a lot of motherfuckers with me.
  11. France playing some lovely football at the moment. How long before they all fall out with each other?
  12. Have Man Utd just sacked Ronaldo?
  13. I thought Hartson was gonna cry at the end. It’s nuts how football can get you like that sometimes. Fair play to the bloke, the moment clearly meant an awful lot to him.
  14. Ha. It’s raining goals. Is it still 0-0 on @Smoothy‘s stream?
  15. Lovely finish from Taremi. I didn’t know much about him until this season but he’s a hell of a player.
  16. Shearer and Richards talking about Harry Kane “not looking” where Sterling was over slow motion footage of Harry Kane definitely looking at where Sterling was.
  17. @Ork1927 I’m not sure on the exact maths, but a point might not be a bad result for Wales tonight as England might already be through by the time England and Wales meet. Iran are going to be well up for it against the Yanks so even if they are already out I can’t see them lying down in their third game. The rest of this game is difficult to call. England look really confident at the moment, the passing looks crisp and Iran have basically handed over control of the midfield to Rice & Bellingham. The game is over so I can just see England coasting now, it’s a long tournament and it’s hot out there so plan for the days ahead.
  18. This is sensational football at the moment.
  19. I always said that Birmingham City were holding Jude Bellingham back. Lovely goal though. It’s been coming.
  20. I’m not sure how long it will last, but I think I love this game.
  21. Mine was Italia 90. I remember Mexico 86 being on in the background while other people were watching but Italia 90 was the first one I was excited for and watching Cameroon beating Argentina (and that tackle) with my Grandad is something I’ll remember forever.
