    England's WC so far. Brilliant!

    A massive well done to Southgate, and his first 11.

    They've given us 4 wins in a tournament, for first time in a generation or two.

    Despite the dominance of the PL and club tribalism in England, this brilliant WC has rebalanced the picture.

    Happy days

      England's WC so far. Piece of piss.

      If only Brighton had it this easy in the PL, playing Tunisia, Panama, Colombia without their only star player and Sweden.

      Belgium have beaten Brazil & England
      France have beaten Argentina & Denmark
      Croatia have beaten Argentina
      Russia have beaten Spain

      To get this far.

      For those of us who have seen so many failures since 1966, this is karma

      I keep thinking of the rise of Jordan Pickford, only a couple of years back he was employed to pick the balls out of Sunderland's net, but he wanted better, so he left and became a goalkeeper and now he finds himself in the semi finals of the World Cup ! Amazing !

      Half empty? Just accurate, isn't it? Who out of that lot would you be worried about Brighton facing?

      Half empty assumes I want them to win. When, in truth, I couldn't give a ****.

      Before the WC on NSC, many predicted an early flop for England and slagged off Southgate. They were wrong.

      In the past England crumbled against the likes of those opponents.

      Plus the BBC narrative before the game was that Sweden don't concede goals, have the Indian Sign over England, blah, blah.

      Finally, England are breaking all those tournament traits.

      If you don’t give a ****, why post on this thread? Leave it to us deluded English fans who think, maybe, just maybe, it could be our year.




      I don’t think we’ll beat another team now, but, Christ it’s been fun while it lasts.
