    weird decision to start Gascoigne so deep in this game. its abundantly clear that it wasn't working. he should be playing up behind the strikers, is a passenger in this deep role.

    That was one of the worst 45 minutes of football ive ever seen.

    God only knows what venables was thinking:
    - 3 at the back but only playing with 1 centre back, the size of the spaces between the defenders was huge!
    - southgate playing as a defensive midfielder but often appearing furthest forward of the midfielders with ince and particularly Gascoigne playing too deep
    - onto Gascoigne he was almost playing as a sweeper, completely wasting his ability with a football, no Scotland players ever within 30 yards of him back there, but that's not where he needed to be on the pitch to excel
    - Anderton is the most useless player ever to pull on an England shirt

    I think we have only played well for about 10 minutes throughout the game !

    Very fortunate.

    it should be available to watch again on the itv hub.....I highly advise skipping the first half though.

    That is true .

    Right after " Big Ron" says he was having a bad game.

    It's on Wednesday.

    1st half particularly!

    Obviously the Netherlands game was sensational, but if memory serves me correctly we were abysmal in the Spain game

    Spain had 2 goals ruled out for offside.. wrongly I think.

    Most of the knock out games were pretty drab.

    Did anyone watch the highlights of England/Cameroon 1990 the other day? How on earth did England get through that one?

    They keep showing it !

    Shilton was MOTM which says it all.

    Few comments about the Cameroon team that wouldn't be acceptable today by various pundits.

    I was at this one. Absolutely fantastic atmosphere especially in the second half. Best non-Watford experience of my life.

    Just watching Harry’s heroes and they showed the England Germany penalty shoot out.

    England get a bad rap for penalty shoot outs, but didn’t we hit 5/5 against both Spain and Germany? but unfortunately against the the Germans so did they.

    Yes - god knows why Southgate took one ?

    Rafa Nadal's uncle missed for Spain I think.

    England v Spain tomorrow..

    Big contrast to the last game - till the penalties.
     
  21. I have a sneaky feeling the Germans will win the title. Tempted to put a cheeky £25 on, does anyone the latest odds ?

    Not sure but I may put a fiver on the Czech Republic reaching the final. Think they were 40/1 when I last looked
