    We over achieved against very mediocre expectations. I enjoyed the WC but have little interest now.
    It was good to see a disciplined squad who were a credit to our country both on and off the field. Our free kicks were well worked but in truth we struggled elsewhere attackwise.
    I’ve been disappointed with Kane in recent matches - a typical captain trying to put things right all over the pitch rather than being in the right place at the right time to score.
    This team could be the start of something big but we badly need a creative midfielder. I don’t see Alli as the answer..... yet
    never forget what Stanley, Archer and Bellotti did

      Great post.

      We've massively improved in tournament football, overcoming highly regarded defences, thugs and some highly regarded opponents. Loads of goals scored, a decent defence.

      4 wins, compared to the dross of the last many years.

      A quality WC.
      This is a young inexperienced team who will grow and learn from this experience. They gave it all they got tonight.

      Compare that to the humiliation of being knocked out by Iceland two years ago, when the team really didn't look bothered.

      I think the future looks bright with this team and Southgate, as long as they are allowed to regroup and build.

      Feel really sorry for the team.

      I think a decent manager would have made the necessary half time team talk and necessary changes to win that match that was for the taking.

      Unfortunately we are now stuck with him because of his "success".

      We also have some very good junior teams coming through, so, as Liam Rosenior would say” Chin up, we go again “
      You be glad you be Sussex born!

      ooooooohhhhhhhhh thats pretty cutting.

      Sounds like a pre-formed opinion really, hard to imagine any genuine person watching this tournament and thinking that.
      Nailed it, again. Spotted a blinkered misery, waiting in the wings for the WC exit, to bitch.

      Where England are now reminds me of where British tennis was with Henman and Rusedski. Both broke through into new ground, both troubled the best but neither was quite good enough. Nevertheless, they showed the way for Murray and the Davis Cup team and gave the fans belief.

      We have a great crop of kids coming through and I think Gareth can continue helping this side to progress. I might even start watching England friendlies again.

      Sadly we will never win the World Cup again, golden opportunity this time and we blew it.
      Croatia were very different to the teams we had beaten previously, they were the first side that we have faced who have offered real pace and movement, and the first team that really pressed high up the pitch on ourdefence.

      They were the better team on the night and deserved to go through. Our players are young and hungry for success, in four years time they will be better still and more experienced. Their time will come again.

      A great tournament, were we beat two very low ranked teams, effectively drew with a middle ranked team (but won the penalties) and have lost twice (shortly to be three times) to decent teams.

      So yes a great tournament
      **** off !!

      Keep the faith, if that makes you happy nothing wrong with dreaming.
      Weather forecast for tonight: dark.

      dominated first half and arguably first hour a better midfield until they crept into the game and quality started to show. even then we took the game to them rather than a traditional England rear guard. couple of individual errors gave them chances they finished, especially the second. we missed our chances.

      overall, some players had great tournament, Trippier and Pickford, even Maguire, Lingard (well better than i expected). lacking a vocal leader on the pitch, and not sure there's enough on the bench. and now expectation will be high for the next tournaments.
      Unfortunately there are some players on the bench today who could have made an impact. Out weakness was midfield and leaving Delph and/or Loftus-Cheek kicking their heels while Alli passengered around for 2 hours is just ridiculous.

      Think we will never have a better opportunity to get into a final. The only way is down
      The greater their ignorance, the stronger their opinions.
