Discussion in 'football' started by sihhi, May 28, 2018.
I've seen Gareth Southgate interviewed. It's entirely plausible that he's both alive and dead imo.
Yeh. What you know about football could be written in 36 point times on the back of a train ticket. And there'd be a spot of space after the "fuck all" too
On the plus side at least you know they've practiced penalties
He needs to do a bit more than that. Nothing i've seen suggests he's any better than the previous 'yes' men the fa employ.
It's a game of two halves init!
Also every four years we're told how grand the England team are but it's 22 years since we last had a reasonable chance of winning an international competition
Five if you include extra time and penalties
Well if Southgate sleeps through the first 90 mins, we won't need the extra's.
I reckon Southgate will substitute himself on to take a penalty in the quarters. Why not
To put it simply when you look at our defence you see goals going in against us. Stones looks like he has a clanger in him each match and he's probably the best of a bad bunch centre back wise.
At the front we look quick and dangerous but that is only any use if teams want to play against us. In tournaments they never do, they'll sit deep, give no room and we'll lack the quality the break that down.
Combine the two and it will be the usual diet of boring draws and dismal odd goal defeats to crap teams. Normal service.
Further than the small time bitter nations like Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
Glorious penalty shoot out defeat and burning effigies of Harry Kane.
I remember Gareth Southgate missing (with a very poor penalty - one of the worst I've seen on TV down the middle and on the ground) and nothing like that ever happened. A joke?
Poll is finely balanced between 2R and QF!
On penalties, right?
Germany's 6th taker misses, all comes down to Trent Arnold-Alexander... a hero is born.
3-1 loss to Brazil in the quarterfinals
No, it was Beckham who got the effigies.
It's coming home.
I still believe
He got praised for taking one when no one else (cough Paul Ince cough) didn't have the balls to take one.
Just the sort of guy we need managing us in an international tournament.
Not going to get out of the group.
Loftus Cheek will have run out of steam by this stage and will no longer be able to carry the rest of the donkeys.
Wales and Ireland went further than you last time, didn't they?
which group are they in?
No group this time. I love the optimism every two years from you lot
Just a pity it turns to anger and blame every time
Not this time.
Maybe in Russia when we beat them
Sterling I'm not convinced
will get out of group (Belgium!) but no further than usual (quarterfinals).
