How will you feel if England go out of the WC?

How will you feel if England lose?

  1. Mildly disappointed but chuffed they got this far:

  2. Absolutely GUTTED!

  3. Glad they're out:

  4. Couldn't care less either way:

    So England are second favourites to win the World Cup and just 2 games away from doing so. That's just weird!

    How disappointed will you be if they go out against Croatia next week or lose in the final?

    Before the tournament started I'd have been surprised if we got out of the group stage, not because of the team but because that's just what happens with England in international tournaments. There's no way I'd have expected them to win a penalty shoot out or get to the semi-finals so I'm already well chuffed. If the wheels come off now it's been a great ride. The players and the remarkably decent manager in particular have acquitted themselves with class and dignity that we haven't been accustomed to in English football and so far the fans have been pretty good too.

    Well done all round, I say.

    It's the best result for 28 years. But all other things being equal there's a high probability they'll not win.

    Voted "absolutely GUTTED" because Croatia are beatable, but I've convinced myself that France or Belgium will win, so it will save us the grief of losing a final.

    Win/Win for me. I shall be English if you win and insouciantly Welsh if you don't. But I'd rather you won.

    Rebelda Nearly as bad as Badgers

    Combination of the first two options. I won't be angry, smashy gutted but mildly disappointed doesn't cover it.

    I don't think I'll cry like a Swede (etc etc) 10 mins before full time if we're down but penalties are a cruel way to go out. Would probably shed a tear then.

    If we don't win this, I'll smash up at least two of my local pubs. But I was going to do that if we win too.

    Yes, I couldn't think of an option to put between them. "Pissed off but not suicidal" maybe?

    Gutted because I’ve got long motorway journeys to make on Wednesday and Sunday at match times and the fewer cars on the road the better.

    Like you, I thought we wouldn't progress out of the group - ive been too caught up in the hype of previous tournaments and actually swithced off from England, theres only so many time you can hear gerrard, lampard et al saying things are different, we're gunna win, only to crash out a week or so later. This England has been been brilliant and id be absolutley gutted.

    On the plus side, I do have the work sweepstake....

    I'm just happy. It's been a great tournament and England have exceeded all expectations. We go out Wednesday there'll be a bit of "what might have been" disappointment and a few tears I imagine, but they've already won more than I expected - they won the fans back.

    Southgate has been brilliant in everything he's done, and will deservedly get huge credit. He's shown you can be a leader without being aggressive, a bullshitter, an egomaniac, soulless or a twat.

    As far as the team goes, they've already made it to that rarefied place where England fans will remember them as long as the game is played, and they've done it without being pricks. They've had as much fun as we have. And good on them for that.

    But all of this is irrelevant and will have to be reconsidered in the light of England beating Croatia 1-0 on Wednesday then Belgium on pens in Sunday's final :p

    Gutted obviously.

    Cannot imagine the feeling and build up to England in a World Cup Final, probably feel less gutted about losing that than going out to Croatia. :D

    I will be too busy readying the Euro 2020 threads to worry.

    A mixture of glad and couldn’t really care.

    The game/cup itself to me is utterly inconsequential. But how certain quarters will react if we win will be vomit inducing at best and downright nasty at worst.

    Disappointed but not surprised.

    I have never thought theyre good enough to win and nothing ive seen this tournament has changed my mind. Still I'll be hoping to be wrong and supporting em all the way.

    France would beat them 3-1 no probs tho.

    About this. Four weeks ago, a semi-final would have been an amazing achievement. And it still will be. But, it's Croatia. A knackered Croatia. To lose to them would be gutting.

    I'm less eager to tell everybody that we're going to win it now that there is a slight possibility.

    It was funny before. :(
