    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Southgate has got rid of some older players, and helped establish a playing pattern for not just the senior team, but for the whole setup. He’s got a great nucleus going forward. Bearing in mind Trippier, Pickford and Maguire had less than twenty caps between them coming into this tournament, and they were probably our best performers, he’s shown he can spot a player to come in and do a good job. There will be changes - Young won’t be there much longer, so Sessignon will be fast-tracked into the squad providing he looks the part, and Kline. As said, we’re still lacking creative spark. We need someone in the midfield who can split a defence with a pass, do the unexpected. There were too many good runs missed during the games because none of the midfield spotted them. Alli isn’t really that sort of player, and the jury is out on Lingard. All in all, something very promising to build on.
  2. I think I said it many many pages back - I’m hoping she’s a running joke where she keeps coming back for 90 seconds and apparently getting killed in more and more ridiculous ways.

    And the winners only finished third in their league this season, 17 points behind Barcelona.

    Indeed - we have Under-20 and Under-17 World Cup winners to bring through. Let’s hope they get their chance in the PL to push on and break into the senior side.

    It was coming home, but it’s stopping before it hits the Channel. I thought the winner would come from the other half of the draw, and I honestly can’t see an ageing Croatia side dealing with M’bappe and his buddies after a third extra-time win.

    Bugger, the Spurs semi-final curse DID happen Just doing the post-mortem with my friends, talking about the Stones header off the line, and Kane’s chance where if he’d squared it to Sterling he had a goal-line tap in. They’ve done very well though, and they aren’t absolute horrors. Onwards and upwards !!

    I think some of our key players were knackered. Alli, Lingard and Kane were fucked. All in all a promising showing, and a bright future. Things to improve on - first touch, composure when in on goal, ironing out that one or two lapses in defence we’ve seen every game. Got away with it up til today. But man, that first half. We HAVE to become more clinical.

    Jeeeesus - we’ve had more than enough chances to win this. Alli and Lingard are knackered - Alli’s been anonymous for most of the second half. Needed Loftus-Cheek about half an hour ago.

    Sterling, Trippier and Lingard are key here. Croatia aren’t blessed with lots of quick players, and if England can get behind their midfield they can cause problems. Fingers crossed - I’m a Spurs fan as well as an England fan, so I’m more than used to glorious failure.

    Ah - he posted a picture of himself an hour ago, clean shaven. So, short-haired clean shaven idealistic Luke force ghost ?

    I have nothing to go on other than that Mark Hamill has said on many occasions how much hates the beard and that it’s going as soon as he finishes with Luke, but posted a picture of himself with James Gunn a couple of weeks ago still sporting it. So that’s a resounding ‘possibly’.

    Ronaldo reckons he can keep going til he’s 40. This’ll see him to 37, and I’m guessing he’ll then have one last hurrah back in Portugal.

    I don’t know about outclassed - it was a 1-0 stodgefest with neither side particularly going for it since they had both qualified already, and Rashford had one excellent chance along with a couple of other good ones. More concerning for me is our continued profligacy infront of goal. We seem to need several chances to score, whereas the absolute top teams will score one in two. ‘Easy’ is relative. The sides have been less well established, but they qualified ahead of the supposed ‘big’ teams England could have played. As you say, they can’t control who they play, they just have to beat them.
