Yeah, got to say I am sick with nerves now.  I have been genuinely relaxed all week, silly posts and stuff in here haven't even been tongue in cheek really because I was 100% convinced we would win very comfortably.  Now I'm not.  With the draw and the path to the final, plus the team being likeable, plus the fact we are favourites this is going to hurt bad if we **** it up.  Talking like absolute peak '96 and '98 and '04 levels of misery.  Instead of a mildly frustrating but slightly comical exit because we idiotically shoot ourselves in the foot or weren't expected to do very well anyway.

Yeah. Gone from a laugh and enjoyment to "we've actually got a bloody good chance here", which makes it so nervy. Had we been playing Japan I'd have probably gone with enjoyment but with an expectation that Brazil will likely knock us out, anything else is a bonus.

Every nation on our side of the draw have to see this as their biggest opportunity they're as likely to get. Going to be some gutted fans.

Cheeky.

Ought to remind Michael how we normally got on against "pub teams" when he was playing.  Don't remember him scoring against Trinidad and Tobago.

Lads, Sweden v Switzerland has been like a Championship game.  Basically a free pass to the semis.

It's coming home.

Plus Russia are crap and Croatia are mental midgets, to steal @GunmaN1905's phrase so basically it's about who wants to be smashed by us in the final now. :thup:

Can't be disappointed if your expectations are truly low to begin with!

I think Belgium is the weakest in that side.
Brazil>France>Uruguay>Belgium, although anything could happen.

Same goes for the other side, just a level below.
Croatia and England on around the same level, Colombia a bit lower because of their unpredictability and James injury and extremely organized Sweden that lacks quality. Russia as an outsider.

Now for the English to choke against the Colombians. 

That's England's problem.

Why would losing to Colombia in a close game be a choke?

What has England achieved over the past couple of years or in this tournament so they could say they're favorites and not winning would be choking?

You got to hold and give 

but do it at right the time

you can be slow or fast

but you must get to the line

they'll always hate you and hurt you (?)

defend and attack

there's only one way to beat them

that's around the back

 

so catch me if you can 

coz i'm the England man

and what you're looking at

is the masterplan

 

we aint no hooligans

this aint no football song

3 lions on my chest

you know you can't go wrong
