Same i was having to read the text updates on the graun at work and that was bad enough!
Has anyone seen/heard any coverage from outside of England? Always interested in how things are viewed by people who aren't in the thick of it and have a more removed perspective.
I've seen the Colombian manager is upset at our 'antics'. I'm not going to defend some of our diving and fouling, but I'm also not going take that from him, who sent out his team to do that from minute one. Prick can jog on
Speaking as a fanatical to the point of derangement ABE, my gloating will be intersectional or it will be bullshit.
In the interests of intergalactic proletarian solidarity I have reconstructed the controversial Kane/Sanchez penalty incident.
Colombia coach: England stars 'fall in the box'
"defend football", for fuck's sake...
Watched the highlights last night because I missed most of the 90 mins. Colombia imo turned a lot of decisions against themselves by crowding the ref so much. Could have been a very different game... for which I'm obviously grateful. It's not often we look calm and composed by comparison
It's a shame for Colombia because their touch and passing can be really stunning when they're playing and not having tantrums. Despite not having their finesse I do think England were the better team in the end last night.
Gareth Southgate is the reason i fancy men with big noses I can pay him no better compliment but seriously, I think the fact our players mostly kept their heads has been his influence.
Why doesn't he have a shirt on?
it's what else he isn't wearing i thought you'd ask about
Why did he feel the need to share that? Just go and run around in the street like a normal person
ross kemp is not a normal person.
Gordon Ramsay likes him
says it all really
Not a good endorsement either way.
NZ Herald have remembered that football exists and put out this scorching hot take: Goalmouth Scramble: Why England haven't got a hope of winning the World Cup
Bloody hell, are they still on the go? I remember them from the 80s.
What a beautiful wee cat.
I will not be watching that...
This is the ideal male body. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.
I think it is time that the football mimicked rugby. Had the players mobbed a rugby ref like that, there would have been multiple sendings off. Man U under Ferguson started this shit, and it should have been stopped then.
I expect Welsh, Scottish and Irish fans not to support England, in fact most to be ABE (I'm typing this in Cardiff, I also used to live in Scotland). I once serenaded a bar full of Scotland fans in Kirkcaldy with a drunken version of Jerusalem . I just find coming on to a supporter thread to post bile, not humour, and being utterly humourless in response to that being pointed out, a bit shit really, not that that will stop it. You didn't do that btw.
I've had several Welsh colleagues come in this morning to congratulate me on my hangover.
Ahhhhh, fuck Some fair points in there, though. I certainly think we're going to struggle against a defensive Sweden, given we've always been struggling against that. The likes of Sterling, Lingard and Rashford can produce a bit of magic that can unlock a defense, but I don't hold out great hope.
If England had a strapline
That makes two of us, anyone?
Yeah, but in the style of Raheem Sterling.
You do get it on the Rugby threads (a couple of our Welsh cousins there are utterly obsessed with England) but its done with a sense of humour rarely found with the ABE football lot. Also the ribbing is mostly aimed at the team rather the nation and there is a lack of the weird cod history that you get on the football threads as people somehow try to link Danny Rose to the Suez Crisis or something.
Anyone But England.
Cheers, suddenly everything is a lot clearer.
