Missed both goals was bouncing in the concourse 🤣 lot of love for the Albion from Carlisle, Brum, Villa, Bolton etc tho 🤣

No Southgate lover here but find myself sticking up for him cos people go too far.. would like someone more tactically brave - that Potter fella would have been good the way he managed Brighton 🤣

Against Shit sides, it’s never going to win a tournament.
Well I kind of agree that there’s better out there but it was very close to winning a tourno - a matter of luck - though agreed at 1-0 we should have gone for it. WC was very unlucky - nothing to do with GS though. But who is out there that could get the team winning tournos? It’s a tough one tbh…

Took my lad, he thinks England nowhere near as good as Albion (took him to West Ham game!) I think we had many years of not being in a position to kill games off in the second half like we did tonight … how many times were we still trying to find a winner against inferior opposition?

Wasn’t a good watch second half but job done. Potter next for England

Tbh mate I had a great at time and pissed and got the caps so can’t comment 🤣 but yeh, never forget McClaren etc and 94 too. We just beat the 2 best teams in the group and we’re going through to Germany - will be brilliant 👍

Bellingham looks bloody good though. 19 years old! But Maddison is a luxury player, in my view.

England are not shit, they just not worth watching. Wake me up when the tournament starts. I tried to watch the game today but the team and the atmosphere were just dull. Southgate has a job to do and he will get it done, he’s had a good week, but that was as compelling to watch as a bureaucrat ticking boxes on an official form.
Well, you have to get through these DULLARD games in order to reach the tournaments. I must have a rack FULL of "Classic Thrilling Quailfying Campaigns" DVDs. Oh....wait. No, I haven't. I doubt any other country has either.

I'm puzzled as to why people think all these games are going to be like Brazil v Italy 1970, and then get all pissy when they're not.

I boycotted the Qatar WC and fully expected to bounce back to watching England.

At the same time, I started watching more non-league football (I went in the opposite direction if you like.)

As a result, I find myself in a strange situation. The bounce back hasn’t happened. I feel no engagement with the international game. And I’ve worked out that it is international football that I care little about. It’s not England, I love England, it’s everything to do with FIFA.

I’d registered that there was an international break, but had no idea when England were playing or who. It’s quite liberating. A shame, but liberating.

Blimey, a principled football fan. Where does this lead I wonder?

You need to know how long to suspend him before you can actually suspend him, or else it will end up in a court of law.
I'm not talking about his suspension, I'm saying he should not be picked for England while this is going on.

The same goes for the sex pest.

I thought I would take the opportunity t get away from International football on a lads weekend in Copenhagen. Went down fro breakfast Saturday morning and bumped into the England Senior Over 60s team. Smashing friendly bunch of lads and happy to say that the Southgate bias, doesn't reach that far. Was wonderful to meet Garry Nelson, still playing at 62.

I went and took wife and child. you can just make us out in the photo above - we were sat int he top tier above the Ukraine fans - look - im waving!!

my thoughts were this (in no particular order)

bastard to get their by car - M4 roadworks didn't help.
couldn't get anything to eat or drink in the immediate vicinity. - probably rookie mistakes made here.
easy to get into ground - very impressive size and views.
Christ it was cold
Almost as cold as the beer.
£4.20 for a diet coke!
boring second half.
bastard to get away by car

Not sure where you parked but probably better to drive to a tube station and travel in like Uxbridge, Amersham, Harrow / Wealdstone. There’s pretty good options around Wembley for food / drink now but agreed not brilliant. We normally eat (and drink ! ) in London and then travel in
