Re: Big Sam being sacked has England manager...

Well.... he was for me. Elderly statesman with "bags of experience"? I'd had it with them. Well, you're more of a visionary than most I suspect. Southgate's lone position in management had seen him get relegated with Middlesbrough before eventually being sacked. I can understand the call ...

Re: Colombian supporters petition

I think your use of the word "supposedly" suggests you think this story is a fucking crock Joe. Social media has a lot to answer for imo. :i am genuinely amused: :i am genuinely amused: :i am genuinely amused: As do the people who swallow this sort of crap. And that's not directed at you ...

Re: Payet

I agree with those who say fuck him, however are we really in a position to tell quality players like him we don’t need his services? Imagine Hernandez, Payet, Arnie and Wilshere playing in the same team. So yes from me. plus Mr Shelvey - oh yes...he is joining also. You can see why we are being to...

Re: England vs Colombia

Apparently Vardy had a groin strain which is why he didn't take a pen...nobody wanted to see Dier on the pitch who was quite below average BUT he converted the winning penalty - so well done to him and thanks. We could do with a good contribution goal wise from Rashford or Welbeck. Both have the abi...

Re: England vs Colombia

We're going to need creativity and guile against Sweden, pace down the flanks and men in the middle attacking the ball. If we don't and rely once again only on set plays we'll get beat. Sweden will nick a goal from somewhere and then it'll be us against a fucking great big Volvo bus and we just don...

He was shocking.

The stumpy little fella had one of his off games...sometimes takes a good corner. Is that enough,no. Didn't think so...he would look terrible in C&B and put off the casual tourist

Re: Pre - Season Programme

I am struggling to work out how the Old Bloke is going to determine his strongest 11 vs the Poo when this is probably the worst Pre Season Programme I can remember. Also, while I`m at it Sullivan needs to sort out NOW that we need a strong game at HOME a week before the season starts, these Stadium...

Re: England vs Colombia

Spain had 74% possession, producing 7 shots on target during 120 mins domination. This tournament they were without Xavi and that lack of special quality has not been replaced...yet. Hats off to Russia and would be nice to play them later,should England not go all wonky I've seen some great games a...

Re: England vs Colombia

They played a totally different way against the Saudis. Just as we did at Huddersfield and Stoke. So there are similarities. I seriously do not see an issue. They played a more attacking game in the group but it is a sport and they were the lowest ranked team in the tournament who got through as th...
