    Re: World Cup 2018

    It was a great effort and while the draw was kind, we laid a ghost to rest against the last 16 and beat a solid Sweden side. For 45 minutes we were the better side tonight. However, when under the cosh in the second half we lacked a play maker like Modric to pick a pass. That has been an issue in other games and in my opinion the bigger weakness we have at the moment. I think as TV said, Kane was probably carrying a knock tonight and didn't look on the pace. I suggest he was kept on in case we went to penalties. I think we need to be able to switch formations too and if I was going to make a small criticism of Southgate, and I think he's done a fantastic job, it's that he seems reluctant to adapt to what is in front of us and change if we need to. I wonder if that's something he'll learn from

    I have been critical of Sterling because he is a chicken with no head with pace.
    But he is not the main striker Kane is.
    Would be interesting to see Kane’s heat map tonight , he’s to deep and I just don’t understand why have him deep and Sterling going past him knowing his finishing is poor.

    Maybe the lack of creativity in midfield Southgate has asked him to drop to help out.
    I just don’t see the tactical sense .

    Just one question for me “Is Kane to big to be substituted “
    He was to deep , never kept up with play , even in the first half we had no presence in the box.
    The time to bring Vardy on was when we were winning and they were pushing forward.
    The spaces were there then .
    But he waited until we were 2-1 down and they were sitting back.

    Pub team defending for their second goal.

    Very dissapointing But it was good to be there.
    Its never easy supporting England but thought Croatia deserved it.
    The problem with England is that they struggle when the play against a team that are comfortable in possession. They like breaking at speed, which I think was their ultimate downfall.

    They went at it for the first Twenty minutes of each game except the Sweden one and they tired noticeably towards the end of each game.

    They need to breed youngsters who can play a more continental style of keep ball. Much the same for Scotland, Wales and NI. The fans won't tolerate that though.

    Re: World Cup 2018

    On reflection i think we need to consider the opposition we have played to get where England did. Yes we exceeded expectations and yes we had a great chance to get to the final which with a bit more experience and better finishing we may well have done, but... we struggled to beat Tunisia. Panama would do well to compete in the conference tbh. We then play a nothing game against a 2nd string Belgium side and get into the favourable side of the draw, where we come up against another poor side in Columbia who should have been dead and buried before we gave away a last minute equaliser and then we play Sweden who have to be the worst Sweden side for many a year. We then play a seasoned and proper outfit in Croatia and get beat and apart from the first half controlled the rest of the game, whilst we lacked any kind of creativity or threat. Well done to the lads anyway for getting to the semis and Southgate has done a a great job.

    At the end of the day Croatia were the better team and deserved to go through.
    England were great first half, but were no where in the second or extra time period.
    We really miss a creative player in midfield to open things up.
    Yes we got further than expected, but we were fortunate with the draw
