    That's just it mate I don't agree with the whole momentum thing, I think it breeds over confidence which England have been guilty of many a time. Use yer head son

    Trying to fix it so we come 2nd implies that we can comfortably beat anyone from Group H, but that grossly underrates Colombia in my opinion.
    Not really, I'm sheeiiite scared of Colombia, they're a cracking team. I'm sort of hoping they finish 2nd

    Continue with the same team unless someone is injured. Keep it going and rest players in the second half if needed

    Well, you can't bank on other results going your way, so if we phone in a dismal performance in order to finish 2nd, then end up with Colombia then that will have backfired won't it? As I say, all you can do is focus on your own performance and take each game as it comes. For my money, Colombia are still favourites to top their group tomorrow.

    Re: World Cup 2018

    Question, is there a card amnesty after the groups? i.e. anyone with one card after the group stage gets it wiped off? But anyone with 2 misses the last 16?

    Don't Colombia play before us so we'll know where they finish? I'd rather play them than Brazil fwiw.

    That's true actually, we are the last group to finish. But I do think they're likely to win their group which means we'll be wanting to win ours.

    I still think it's a false logic to try and plan your route through. Whoever you face is going to be a decent side to have got there. Before the tournament you'd have said you'd rather face Croatia than Argentina - but the fact Croatia destroyed Argentina and topped the group surely shows they are the better side anyway? Similarly, we could face Mexico instead of the expected Germany in the quarters - but Mexico outclassed Germany in their game anyway.

    Germany will come good and go all the way IMO, they can't stay rubbish for that long.

    True but you have to think that we have been planning and training for this game since the last one finished. Not sure that you can change the team at a few hours notice and expect a performance.

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised. I'm just saying it's cup football, anyone you face in the quarters will have won games to get there, and have momentum and a decent run of form most likely.
