    Mate hardly trolled just questioning some of yours and Da
    ns selections.
    Dan put out a team that hasn't scored enough goals to get out the group let alone win,although he has picked players that played well.
    Not sure who put KDB in either as he was well below what we are used to,just going on what he has done this year was not the question.
    Lloris was nowhere near as good as Pickford IMO I can think of 6 or 7 great saves as well as his penalty saves.
    Just my thoughts that all.

    Re: World Cup 2018

    Some very strange choices - some seems to be going for the name - Rakatic has been very quiet this Comp , was very quiet last night and in most games -KDB has had one good game when he was playing in his normal position other that that very subdued. All the ex pros and pundits had Henderson in yet none on here - strange

    And as for Lovren whilst the comments from him are silly he has played very well since VVD arrived and last night after his mental moments was very good again - certainly one of the better CB of the Comp

    Different scenario, we played against some top top sides and produced great performances, Englands performances were average at best.

    They struggled to win the 1st game then beat a team of no marks.

    I won't count the belguim game as it was a dead rubber.

    They just scrapped past Colombia, if Colombia had played football earlier in that game i think they would've won it.

    Sweden were poor but England done the job, it wasnt pretty nor was it of a high standard perfornance wise.

    For all of the ball england had against Croatia, they created very little. Croatia were much better than England for the 2nd half and whole of extra time.

    If you're happy to accept mediocre football and performances as enjoyment,excitment and improvement then thats upto you, but i stand by my opinion.

    It cant be racism, the Scottish arent a race. National stereotyping maybe?

    Usually we get terrible football and an early exit. This time we got ok football and got to the semi-finals. It's a big improvement and beyond what we expected. We are happy. What's so difficult to understand about that??

    Whilst I thought Henderson had a decent tournament by getting around the pitch and nullifying many attacks going forward he's woeful(and I use forward lightly).
    Can anyone actually remember a defence splitting pass?
    Last night I couldn't believe how many times we went back to the keeper from the half way line.

    There was at least 4 great passes made by Henderson last night, unfortunately it was only Sterling running on for them, lingard and Ali were stood holding each others hands.

    Im not a fan of Hendersons at club level neither.
