I can't see the source at the moment but, if true, then well done for not even being bothered.

Regardless of anything else some of these polling stations are very British

I think Tallentire in Cumbria has the best idea to raise turn-out though.

I suppose that other cities do but not so many from a relatively short time period.

Easter weekend looks good

Burton away then Newcastle at home on the Monday.

Norwich that early is a pain, they'll be quite comfortable then so better than us. Can't we play them in October when they normally go crap?

I think this paragraph sums last night up
at 09:43 21 Jun 2016

England did play well at times here, or at least like a group of individuals trying to force some spark into the game. How, one wonders, has it come to this, almost as though the tournament has come out of nowhere? England had a new shape, too, or at least an oddly fluid shape, all the shapes. It looked like a 4-3-3 or a 4-4-2, or an adaptable 4-1-3-2. Later some other players came on. Others moved around. Other things happened. People stood in other places. Nothing really changed.

Ronay if you were wondering:

I'm pleased with the win but that was disappointing
at 16:03 16 Jun 2016

The same failings of overplaying the ball and fullbacks reluctant to cross the ball as on Saturday. Lots of possession but we didn't do enough with it. Add in another abysmal goal conceded - that just should not go in from there.

The Rashford substitution was bizarre, England lost the all shape, Vardy and Sturridge ended up being too deep and England looked even less effective. The winner was fortunate but a testament to Sturridge's perseverance.

The good football of Saturday's first half seems a long while ago but we are still in the tournament which was starting to look less likely an hour ago.
