  1. Well obvious answer was England's shoot out win bur away from England. I also quite enjoyed Argentina/Nigeria as the pressure and emotion on display was ridiculous. Also the last round of games with Spain/Morocco and Portugal/Iran was superb entertainment. Knockouts lacked a few great moments. France/Argentina was fun but I missed the last 20 mins. Brazil/Belguim was good too I guess. Oh and Japan Belguim! Probably the best 45 mins at the tournament.
  2. So the general consensus is our midfield wasn't quite good enough against Croatia. Maybe we will revert back to a back 4 at some point. Either way will still have a 3 man midfield likely so which players can improve that the future and near future. Lallana, Cook, Winks, RLC rtc. What should our midfield be looking like in 2 years time?
  3. Christ this thread has gone down ill since we went out. Don't ruin the previous 30 odd pages please
  4. Pretty much happened with Wales at the last Euros.
  5. To be the first to miss too and then bounce back. All of us back home assumed it was done when Henderson missed. 'Oh here we go again' Christ. The rollercoaster of emotions I felt during that game. Conceed last minute. Be turd for first half of extra time. Be better for 2nd half. Then winning on pens. That final 45 mins probably too a few years off my life
  6. Yeah once the disappointment dies down. I'll look back fondly here. The ride was great. Christ. Just remembering the Colombia game. That's up the top for England moments for me.
  7. Dude. It's just Ryan. You see him after the CL final? Just ignore him. I still love you.
  8. **** any negativty. These past few weeks have been imemse. I know we didn't beat anyone good but I don't care. I never beleived England would ever do anything but tonight for a brief time I thought we could win the World Cup. Yeah it didn't happen but I'm still enternally grateful for the ride I've been on. Thank you England for giving me hope that one day football will come home again
  9. Final push at work and off to the pub. See you on the other side lads
  10. Wait till he takes a look at the youth teams. Hopefully he tops himself.
  11. Just dreamt we lost 4-1 Don't be a sign. I think we were also playing Turkey not Croatia so I'm banking on my dream not beung a very good prophecy.
  12. I think Alli is kinda in their by default. He got dropped from the first 11 before the tournament but Ox got injured and he was the next best choice really
  13. Are we gonna play Belgium again? Has that happened at a WC before? 2 teams facing eachother twice?
  14. Rashford's missed the easiest chsnce we've created this tournament
  15. To be fair I think it would be a bit short notice to call a bank holiday. I mean I work in finance and transaction that are due to settle and trade Monday. Not sure the country can just postpone everything a day on short notice. But saying that I've seen emergency closing of markets on short notice in far east countries due to typhoons and what not. So who knows
  16. Are you gonna get the missus to put on a waist coat?
  17. Some guy at work read a fancy article and told me that the UK actually over achieves in sport. Considering the amount of different sports we are alright at. Apparently Germany are the biggest underachievers considering their population and infrastructure etc.
  18. I always wondered what I'd do if England won the WC. I just assumed I would get super drunk but thinking about it I'm not sure I would. I'm 32 and this WC has proper done me in. Every 4 nights going to the pub and then celebrating hard. Can't handle it anymore I think IF we were to win the thing I'd leave the pub, go for a walk up top of Hampstead Heath and just sit and look over the landscape and admire the view ala Thanos in Infinity War
