I heard a football analyst say yesterday that England played their best game of the tournament and Italy one of their worst, yet the difference was still small. England should have really taken advantage of Italy not playing their best game yesterday.

England after goal in 2nf minute only defended, and only 1 team playes. OK, Sterling dived here and there but this time referee didn't fall for it...

English fans showed real class again :D

(1) 'It's coming to Rome' 🤣 - Leonardo Bonucci is EVERY Italian fan right now - YouTube

Not sure which analyst that is, but he needs to go to Specsavers. For 30 mins of the first half England were good and the Italians got stressed. England were too defensive though and should have pushed more for a second goal. However then on Engkand played poorly and the Italians were very good - the stats show this (shots, and possession). As an Englishman I can say - well played Italy, you deserved it.

I don't think he was saying that England was playing better, just that they were better than in previous matches and that Italy played overall better in previous matches. I don't know, I haven't seen enough matches to have an opinion.

It is down to manager at the end. Southgate is good manager but not excellent as Mancini. From the start of the tournament Southgate played cowardly relying only on individual quality. With substitutions by the book not by field situation and with only few bright moments. 

But as an Croatian supporter I can only say I wish we had Southgate as manager.

100%. England were too defensive.

World Cup only 18 months away though... just hope the fact it is in Qatar doesn't spoil the whole festival.

And how right he is!!

All Roads Lead to Rome

The literal meaning is that whichever road one takes, they will always end up in Rome. This is because in the ancient Roman Empire, Rome was placed as the center and all the roads were constructed in a manner that they all eventually led to Rome.

They came, they saw, they conquered :ph34r:

The response by 'fans' to this is absolutely disgusting.  It's a game for fuck's sake, get a grip.

They make me ashamed of being English, such deeply disturbing behaviour from a lot of people in this country. Sad little cunts.

100% agreed. Those players have done more for England than any of those racist cunts. Rashford is a hero in my book :heart:

I’ve just seen what the absolute cunts have done to his mural. It’s beyond sick. 

I fucking hate them. They’re a huge disgrace and we need to do something about them. It’s not okay to let them get away with this shit.

So uh Gylfi's a nonce. 

What the fuck is wrong with folk these days? Leigh Griffiths done similar but was recently cleared. Any 30 year old man messaging 16 year olds is a fucking wrong one.

I'm carefully beginning to have some hope of United finally winning the league again.

When you think about it, the European Super League scandal may have been the best thing that's happened to Man Utd in years. It directly led to the Glazers starting to invest and better the team (while still neglecting the women's team, mind), as well as hiring staff such as John Murtough for football director and a set piece coach. 

With Sancho finally in the team, and Varane all but confirmed to join, there's only one major gap left in the midfield to plug before I can truly see Man Utd as title challengers. Would love for Declan Rice to join, but it seems pretty unrealistic in terms of the fee.

I'm sure we'll win something this year, but every summer when I'm cautiously optimistic, we manage to fuck it up somehow :D

@Dean, what in the name of the wee man is this monstrosity?

 

I thought it was bad enough with all the Postecoglou compilations with Electric Avenue over the top of it, but that is just on a completely different level 😂😂😂

This is going to be a long season for Celtic. Staggering that we're in this position following Lennon's departure 6 months ago, the faffing around waiting on an answer from Eddie Howe and now sheer naivety in the transfer department, starting the season so under prepared and already knocked out of the biggest competition along with being 1-0 down to Hearts. Brutal.
