Just the usual rubbish from England
totally agree with comments

I think the bit in bold is a tad harsh on the players.

Let the dust settle, we did well to get to the Semi's for sure. Just wish Wilf had remained with England as I know he would have outperformed Sterling. In fact Andros would have done a far better job without doubt.

Good effort for the lads, in the end though Croatia had that little bit of quality and experience. Great ride.

 


The ups and downs of Palace have left me older than my years

I dare say I would have done a better job, how much pundits tell me he works hard, work the channels, puts in a shift he seems totally rubbish as soon as any composure is required.

4 I belief. All starting v Belgium the other day, who had 10 out of 11 playing in England.

This crops up after every England exit. How many of the France squad play in the Premier League? Genuine question, not rhetorical.

He does hold the ball well and releases it well, one of our problems is giving the ball away too much and I think hes a good foil for Kane

People who criticise Sterling are usually those that have a very one dimensional view of football

Definately dangerous play, Walker comes into to head the ball a little above waist height, and the Croat sticks his foot stud first just above Kyles ear to stick it home.
However, Kane should have had 2, Maguire had a header cleared off the line.

Could well have been out of sight my half time, but we were not and we ran out of steam, or were not able to match their intensity.

a little above waist height Isn’t dangerous. It’s fair.

Needed that 2nd goal. They were a mess and resorted to cheating 1st half.

Was thinking this myself- fitness levels and drive of Croatians was evidently better. Can't help but think that domestic football calendar is ridiculously congested e.g. why not scrap Carabao Cup and bring in Winter break at XMAS time? To think that football season starts again in a month's time already....

I think they’re more in their prime as well as being experienced and used to each other more. That regrouping for them at Ht was huge.

I’ve reffed in the past, and I would have given ‘foot up’ for that, without question. Incidently it was a header by Stones that was cleared.

It’s there to be won mate. In the box, not at head height. If you disallow that you may as well play under waist height rules. He got there first, that’s it.

Well done England kept this nation going, one hurdle to far,not bad for a team that wasn't given a pray.
But as usual soon as we lose the knifes are out,belittle the achievement of reaching the semis,Coming up with smart comments like we beat only poor teams,
lost to Belgium 2nds hang on didn't we drop 8 players as well, and didn't they get lucky against Japan,lost to Croatia who looked very good from the start the tournament,even so we should have been out of sight by half time so we didn't play that bad,
2 bad defending errors, never wait for a ball that coming into the box, Walker should have been going to the ball not stand and wait,Stone switched off and lost the player near him,both basic defending rules.
So put the knifes away and congratulate them on getting further in the world cup than most believed

Gripe alert: I don't think Croatia were that good and we gave them too much respect in the 2nd half. The good news is that there are better players than Sterling and Alli, who did ok, in the pipeline. Not sure where the hell our next creative midfielder's coming from though.

Southgate did ok overall with what he had in fairness, he's definitely earned a shot at Euro 2020.

Agree on all. Plus Trippier has to jump and put his forearm into the player’s back, making his back header weaker. All learning experiences but Dixon was right in that at that stage you have to make sure you do all your own personal jobs correctly. We didn’t and that was the fine margin in extra time and then they get everyone behind the ball effectively.
