End of day we did well , dont understand why he took Young , as Southgate himself said it was a world cup to soon for the squad , so why not take a young ( no pun ) LB to get the experience . We definitely need a creative player in midfield , still not impressed by Henderson or Dier we need a holding player as well , think our defense is fine , dont know why we keep passing back to the defense and putting them under pressure , it must be down to the coach .
Sounds a bit like our team last few seasons not a bad defence , pretty good attack , fuck all in midfield . :lol:

Croatia really turned up 2nd half and extra time.

Will look for the positives. Proud of the team and they given me back the love for the national team but least we don't have to deal with Spurs fans talking about how they won the World Cup.

4 years time hopefully we will see some quality midfielders on the ball come through and maybe a West Ham lad comes through the academy and captains the side to victory again.

They organized their 5 in midfield better. They smothered Ali and Lingard and stopped the service up to Strling by high pressing also. We played 2 up top and 2 wing backs leaving us 3 in the middle.. Ali and Lingard wasn't strong enough to compete against their extra guy. Saying that , still proud of them because we were without Chamberlin who had a great season . Lallana also. Decent squad to build on! France look menacing and it would have been a huge task to beat them.Mbappe against Cole down that right? come on!

The way the draw fell for us we'll never have a better chance to make the final. There's not much doubt we were in the weaker part of the draw and unfortunately even then we couldn't score from open play and in truth didn't look like we were likely to.

Losing in the final is much worse. You should come back next week and let us know how it feels. :D

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.
