    oh that word was t w a t, mr neilbard, if you wondering. It always makes me happy when I know that I'm happier than other people, like yourself

    England winning or losing doesn't alter my emotional state, we just aren't good enough and I accept that, so mentally I am in a happy place.
    Weather forecast for tonight: dark.

      I always thought before the tournament started our weakness was the defence and I think Croatia highlighted that! I do think though we need a World Cup in England.

      I have no influence on other peoples emotions or feelings, unless you are easily influenced or gullible.

      Trying, in vain.

      A couple of elated (about our exit) bitches, only strengthens my view that as a team probably from the second tier of international sides, we had a good WC and have a bright future.

      Our club sides have won countless Europan Cups. But England have been shit for decades. Not now. We look like a proper football country. We have plenty in the tank, plenty to look forward to. Bring on the Euro qualifications

      I thought after watching Russia v Croatia it would not be easy.

      Bookmakers did well out of me though in this World Cup.


      Brighton = blue
      Albion = white
      Hove = just a little gold necklace stripe

      Plenty to look forward to. A young England team, with even younger players such as Sessegnon and Foden on track to make it in time. The system the FA and latterly Southgate got going is working.

      A fair ending indeed, a group of youngsters who arrived at this World Cup with no pressure and no expectation.

      Southgate steered his lads to a slightly easier bottom half of the draw and incredibly reached the semi-final, an extraordinary tournament that saw the demise of Germany, Spain, Portugal, Argentina and Brazil.

      The future is bright until you factor in expectation and mounting pressure on the players, time and time again we have seen better players and squads capitulate under this type of pressure.

      All in all a good tournament for England, but in my opinion this was the best chance of winning the World Cup in decades and once again we fell short.
