The queen refers, in her letter to the squad, on how well they have conducted themselves.
Starmer refers to role models.
Johnson has to refrain from anything about values or behaviours, as clearly he is so far removed in those terms from GS and his squad.
Win or lose, and let’s hope we win, it will really piss me off to watch Johnson and his bunch of bigots seek to make political capital out of this wonderful group Southgate is leading. I hope GS has a strategy for this inevitability.
I consider England very lucky to have this man as our manager. Aside from a first semi final in a generation, the complete overhaul of the squad and dedication to the promotion of youth, he is just a very decent human being. I imagine the players are grateful to have this man in charge. A worthy successor to Sir Bob.
Johnson will ride it out of course, given everything he’s got away with previously. Bit of a crank though Dom, bit like a spurned ex-lover, which to be fair Johnson has plenty of experience of dealing with.
Young VT won 3-1, got an assist which is good as she’s a goalie but lost her clean sheet with last kick of the game.
Great to be back.
Bit weird having a minute for Phil the Greek before the start, with the girls all struggling not to laugh. Also had a cross word with a couple of fat fcks giving grief to the lady running the line which was disappointing. What are people like.
