Tonight showed our limitations as a side. If we'd have had a modric, we'd probably have won easily. We have two years now till the euro's and in that time we have to find some talented playmakers from somewhere.
Overall this tournament has given the fans something to cheer about and restored some pride, but the disappointing thing is that we didn't go all out to bury them when we went in front. Truth be told our arse went a little bit and we had too many passengers in the team.
To all the spud cunts, you still can't win it and there were five of you lot.
We only needed three. kickimmuts

Good run,but it was all laid out for them,couldn't have picked an easier route thru,
Never have a better chance than that..
Defence was brilliant,but MF and Attack just not good enough...12th in world...bout right.
But gave the country a buzz for a while,so that's good....

But as the Saying goes...........you can't win nothing with Spuds......... :lol:

You Need 3 HAMMERS......... :D

Absolutely. Anyone who says this was one World Cup too soon is dreaming.
How often does a set of semis not feature Brazil, Germany, Italy, Spain, or Argentina? This was an opportunity that won't be repeated anytime soon.
The 86, 90 and Euro 96 England would've pissed this World Cup. :D

Well, 2nd place is our highest success ever so I'll take 2nd place over 3rd.
Your time will come tho, you have very young team.
If you get to the final no-one ever celebrates, or enjoys second place, mate. You win or you're nowhere.
