Well, even though it didn't go the way we had hoped, it's still been a damn good tournament for England and they should return home with their heads held high.

First world cup semi since 1990, an unprecedented penalty shootout win, and the most exciting team for a generation, they did us proud.

Also, there's still a chance of beating our 1990 squad's achievement, as they lost their third place playoff to finish 4th, so fingers crossed our lads will be able to go one better.

As for the final, i think France has it in the bag.

The best thing about all this is the way the entire country has been drawn together in celebration and anticipation. I get that it must have been insufferable for the ABEs, so of course they're going to try and rub it in that we 'only' made it to the semifinal of a World Cup!

I find the ABEs quite amusing. The Welsh can rightly point at their recent Euro semi-final appearance when they take the piss, but the Scottish are hilarious. A side that hasn't ever made it out of the first round and hasn't qualified in over 20 years is laughing at a semi-final side? :lol:

It reminds me of Bristol Rovers fans who were laughing when Bristol City got knocked out of the League Cup earlier this year. I understand why they were happy, but laughing at a side that made it to the semi-finals, when they did strawberry float all of note?

The bitterness is incredibly funny. :lol:

Yesterday morning a Welsh colleague claimed England were only doing well because they'd copied the way they play :fp:

Mind you, now I'm inclined to agree.

If England copied the way Wales play, they wouldn’t have even qualified. ;)

HES WON THE GOLDEN BOOT YOU STRAWBERRY FLOATING TWAT

with penalties, a fluke deflection and two headers from corners that he pretty much stood still for after a centre back made a strong initial header
he's had moments from open play but hardly anything compared to what you'd see from him in even a single england friendly before the injury


Yeah, exactly my point. Kane's link up play has been poor over the course of the tournament, and he missed an absolute golden chance at 1-0 in the first half when 1 on 1 that if it were Sterling he'd have been crucified.

Sure yeah, good positioning for the Tunisia goals, but there is little doubt he was poor both last night and last Saturday.

Kane was never actually in the box to receive crosses. I don't get it.

Not that bad actually. Was a struggle getting out of bed and I had some really weird dreams though.

It was fun while it lasted. That's true for the eventual winners too. Everyone gets to cheer and jump about for a while and that's it.

It's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase.

Hard luck England, as others have said, they really should be hailed hero's though to get to a Semi final. I fear such an easy route to one will be hard to achieve again. I wonder if a fit Lallana or Chamberlain would have made any difference?

Parksey, the usual shitposters and ABEs have no interest in proper discussion - it's all about 'bait' and trying to get a reaction, like when you're at school. Just accept it and ignore it.

The bitter Scots, Welsh and Irish online do make me laugh though. No big or important games of their own to get excited about, so it's all about shitting on another team, in this case for getting knocked out in the SFs of the World Cup. :lol: :fp: Trying to justify it all by saying "but the media are annoying" isn't really an excuse, as that's pretty easily avoided, and all of the attempted insults and such are aimed at people who have absolutely nothing to do with the media. :lol: Presumably in other countries there's 100% balance and impartiality in all sports reporting, and it's only England where pundits, commentators and sports writers want their national team to win.

Anyway, has been great fun, the team were great and I never thought I'd see us in SF, so that's a real bonus. Don't care who wins now, but it's France's to lose for sure. The third-place playoff has to be the worst idea ever, why not just have a winner and a runner-up? :lol: :fp:

If you had dreams, there is a whole level of drunk you are yet to explore.
