Oh, so that's why Sterling scores all them goals for City. Makes perfect sense now.

Not going to be that bitter SF loser after a great tournament. Struggling to know who I want to win though. I don't think I saw one Croatian shake hands with our lads after the defeat. Fox had extended coverage after the game and there were no exchanges I saw just them celebrating constantly. Also in the press, they didn't exactly win with class. However, they're still playing the bloody French.
Who is everyone else wanting to see win it?

After a quick scroll I didn't see a specific thread though. Was Southgate found wanting a little tactically 22 minutes away from a World Cup final? After they bulked up on the wings second last night the midfield completely passed us by. Only one team was going to win it after they got level.
Furthermore the ref was poor I thought. Don't mind the non whistles for the ticky tacky stuff but god almighty they were clattering into us, some obvious bookings and general fouls he missed. I took the loss ok last night but this morning I woke up angry. They were there for the taking first half.

|Sterling the easy target|
at 15:25 12 Jul 2018
but for me Lingard and his lack of composure cost us multiple times in this tournament . People will point to Kane's chance (he should have squared it to Sterling BTW) but Lingard side foot effort was the goal was gaping was as big. He failed to kill of Columbia, missed chances in other games and just seemed lack of composure when it mattered. People saying he shinned last night. Well he covered a lot of ground and got in great positions but didn't deliver the end product. Did score a hell of a goal against Panama I know.

Not sure why people are paying over a grand as is being reported!
Looked at all logistics and going to have to resell it though just unfeasible with work this week for multiple reasons. For $3k I could have got it done if it was another week, gutted.

Not being negative for me it's already provided more than I could have hoped for from England. However, a few things from last night and maybe in general. We're still not creating guilt edge changes from open play. We got behind them a few times but against big strong opposition we seem to lack some ideas. Kane for as ice cool and as magnificent as he has been, can't remember a shot or dangerous moment from him in open play too often (if a tall). He was very deep at times last night which was fine because it got us a free kick nearly every time but I'd like to see him have more opportunities in the 90 or efforts on goal. Alli and Sterling have shown flashes, if fit still start them both. Loftus cheek is a good option from the bench but should not start, his touch is off compared to Dele Alli. We've look good at the back, confidently stroking it around but must stay focused. In a game we were controlling Walker nearly let them in. Lingard always get in the positions but he disappointed me last night a little second half. Could have finished then off with some more composure.

|The ref tonight, honest thoughts......?|
at 03:04 4 Jul 2018
In one way I thought it was the hardest game of the tournament to ref, with those lot constantly in his face and cheating. Also credit got him to punish them for the penalty and not scared to book them either. On the other he seemed to want to even it up and give them free kicks for any 50/50 plus the Henderson booking when it was them delaying everything and getting in our players faces seems a joke. I don't know, I wasn't very impressed but thought he held his nerve at times as well. Tough game to ref for sure.

In the pub was doing some work this morning watching Switzerland and Sweden from here. Debating whether to go home and watch it + fully concentrate alone with my fridge full of beer or just stay here. The bar tender is good here and multiple TVs with full sound.
Other knock against going home is it is 110 degrees outside and its a twenty minute walk. That said I did see Uruguay knock us out four years ago from the same bar I currently am in but I am not really that superstitious. Tough tough choices!!
|Columbia have I missed something?|
at 04:15 2 Jul 2018
James is out isn't he? Scraped by Senegal, suspect at the back. Won't be easy but everyone just awaits disappointment with England. This team is young and dangerous with some players looking decent. We should be too much for them if we play at a good level. Dangerous game but maybe let's be a little positive for a change.
|Fun day of World Cup action|

Love Penalties as a neutral. Spain were so poor! Anything can happen in this competition, anything! Looking forward to Brazil Mexico tomorrow and a chilled day off.

Four action packed days of world cup (which England can't ruin because they play last) then a nice mid week bank holiday for when they signed a book about guns or something.
Shame it's 100 degrees but I'll live

I actually like the Germans are people these days but no tears here. Enough heartbreak at the hands of them over the years.

Is it good? Is it tough? Although, I do plenty out doors stuff I've never taken that well to water really not that it bothers me. I will be partaking in such activity on a stag do Friday.

Why are players not being pulled up and punished for this ridiculous diving and play acting that just gets worse and worse. Should use video evidence even after the game to punish them afterwards to stamp it out once and for all.
