    Final: France vs Croatia, 4pm BST

    I didn't miss the point. I simply think your point is ********.

    People have no idea what happens to trophies during celebrations. They get dropped, bent, scratched, drunk out of, worn as hats. If people need complain about that they need to get over themselves, or complain about pretty much every major trophy celebration ever.

    This kind of nonsense post makes me enjoy the fact it winds you up. Imagine being wound up by someone showing respect to your coach. The entire French team gatecrashed Deschamps press conference to the point no one could ask him a question, champagne going everywhere. Griezmann wore the trophy like a hat, Umtiti cradled and sang to it like a baby I assume they are all also awful people? All a bit laughable

    something wrong wih the transfer market

    double the wages, so what, 400k a week? that's more in a month than the entire transfer fee. How long is Ozil's contract compared to Aubameyang's?

    he's also not accurate either about Ozil real life, because clubs were not all over him at all when his contract was winding down. Partly because he wanted a 350k a week deal.

    Stones played, but it was Cahill and Jones either side of him. Very different skill make up to Walker and Maguire

    England have their system, and I like it, and i don't necessarily have a problem with two attacking mids. What England need to do is be more flexible in this system. When getting overrun, it should have become two natural centre mids alongside Henderson. You could have Dier as the pivot, Henderson all action, and Lingard/Alli as the more attacking CM if going mixed. You watch for the likes of Foden/Sancho, see if they can be your next playmaker. What's disappointing is people looking at our squad and saying we couldnt do more, we definitely could have. We didn't maximise our flexibility at all.

    This is so daft I can't actually be bothered responding to you further after that . We changed the entire team vs Belgium. Clearly not the same thing unless you're a cretin. Look at Croatia's pass map, what you're dismissing is exactly what they were doing. You're also lying about Colombia because they didn't deliver consistently well from that side. In fact, cuadrado didn't get into the game until he moved away from young and started playing AMC. Young's movement and map actually shows he's was delivering width, but crossing inside rather than outside like Trippier

    Yeah, never mind Young actually had a very good tournament. Lets change him for Danny Rose, despite that position not actually being the problem

    I don't think we did max out what we had, that's what will disappoint me the most about this.

    How many times do have I have to say we also have Delph and RLC too. Also I watched the game, all his passing options are risky forward ones, which is why his long ball completion rates were terrible. The whole ****ing point is that he needed some easy safe sideways and short forward options, to go with the riskier passes. That's what a proper midfield does. That is exactly what Croatia had. So we could try and control the tempo. You don't always need to go forwards. If you can't see how playing two central midfielders on Delph and RLC over two attacking mids in Alli and Lingard would have changed that, I can't help you.

    He wasn't even up against just Modric, he has Rakitic moving at will because Brozovic gave them both a platform. We needed to engage that midfield with our energy. We didn't.

    Of course the change in midfield would have made a difference. Have you seen Henderson's pass map? He had no out balls offensively. Defensively, rakitic and Modric were constantly in behind Alli and Lingard, which meant the back three got pressed, which means young and Trippier dropped back, which meant their fullbacks could create overlaps at will. Not sure why you keep saying Dier, when we also had Delph and RLC. England needed to play a true midfield. They didn't. They didn't even adapt to one so you basically had Rakitic, Modric and Brozodvic vs Henderson

    Anyone could have told you what would happen against a free playing rakitic and Modric. Rose for young would have changed nothing because it was the midfield that was causing the issue.
