Lads I’m struggling to cope with the fact that Lovren has got to both a Champions League and World Cup final this season.

Darkest timeline confirmed.

Shame but really I would say Croatia were the better team - their better quality showed through in the end. England have been much better than I expected though, so it's been good fun.

So! On to Wimbledon! When does that start?

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

Gutted obviously but the fact I actually got to jump up and cheer stupidly for England during a World Cup is enough for me. That's pretty rare.

I think once Sterling went off we looked pretty poor, but Croatia were clearly better. Modric is just sublime.

I know it's probably too early, but I can't really see it as overachieving when they haven't beaten anyone ranked higher than them. Nobody expected them to get to a semi final, but are you really telling me at the start of the tournament nobody would have expected them to beat Tunisia, Panama and Sweden? Let's be honest, they would have expected to beat Croatia too, a team ranked below them like all the others. People are acting like going out to Iceland is the norm, but it's not. Defeats to Italy/Uruguay put them out of 2014, Italy in 2012, Germany in 2010, Portugal in 2006 and 2004, teams ranked higher than them.

We can talk about it being a young team and a bright future, but I can't see them ever getting a run of games this nice again.

I think criticism of this match is fine(and no matter how well they’ve done, no team or individual should be above criticism), because England were terribly limp for a large chunk of it, but it was a very promising tournament from a group of players who, if they can find a bit of a creative spark, could do very well at Euro 2018. There’s a lot of positives to take from this World Cup, so nobody should be too disheartened.

Rankings mean nothing. Poland and Switzerland are ranked above England. Tunisia are one place below Croatia.

Colombia and Sweden were good teams until England beat them.

We are absolutely shite as usual :lol:

Have absolutely no problems with the players and coaches but the way the media handled it all (again) is absolutely soul destroying for any non-English person.

You raise a good point, if this was the fa cup people would be laughing at spurs saying they bottled it again, so have England just bottled it?

Is anyone bothered by the 3rd place playoff? What the hell is the point in it?
