From a footballing/entertainment aspect I think this has been one of the best World Cups that I can remember
Only spoiled by the Co commentators ( amongst others - but Danny Murphy takes the award in this category ) waxing lyrically every time Messi blew his nose, tied his boots or left the field for a piss. Thank f*** it’s over.From a footballing/entertainment aspect I think this has been one of the best World Cups that I can remember
Indeed.Now the dust has settled, and the emotions have been taken out of it, I think that has to be considered as one of the most dramatic and entertaining World Cup finals of all time.
It was like a playoff semi final. Incredible.
Thing is it works because it's easy to do, doesn't depend on anything pre-determined, and often produces a decision based on 10 kicks or fewer.Indeed.
Penalties is still a shit way to decide the winner, though.
Better than England, that's for sure. Who are sadly to say, are only good at losing.Shout out to a country with a population of under 4m who continue to be awesome at sport and especially football.
3rd place in their first WC in 98
Runners up in 2018
3rd place again in 2022
Produced a generation world class player who has deserved mention in the same breath as Messi and Ronaldo alongside many others.
Really only a goalscorer short of doing better this time out.
Love you guys
Not me. He's not a winner. Never was in his career. Nice guy. But as Roy Keane said tonight 'England are too nice' when they were talking about Argentina's antics.Hey but we’re fine with Southgate, right!?
The England national team were certainly favoured not to get an international ban in the 80's, it makes me cringe when our appalling FA shout so loud against others these days. The kneeling is absurd.Problem is, England still keep apologising and bending over for past experiences which had nothing to do with the players that were born today.
The history of hooliganism. The history of the British Empire. We are feeling like we don't deserve to be on the same stage because of our sins.
Seriously, England need to get that ruthlessness back. That's the only way they will win something. Without feeling bad about it.
I think Stevie Cooper would bring that mentality back. But f*** off FA
