    Greg Docherty to go out on loan

    To be honest, while it’s good to see Gerrard isn’t afraid to get rid of players he doesn’t think are good enough, there’s plenty of players I would like to see shown the door before docherty. Even if we’re just talking about the midfield would much rather see the back of Halliday and Docherty kept as a squad player.

    As I said earlier think it’s the best World Cup I’ve seen in my lifetime and brilliantly hosted by the Russians, know lads who’ve been out there and only got good things to say! Think it was a deserved win for the French in the end who looked very good, enjoyed the shocks along the way made for a very competitive tournament and at one point was anyone’s guess who could win! Got to see England in a semi final and 45 mins away from the final which is more than I ever thought I would see in my lifetime! All over now and onto the new season and hopefully 55! 🇬🇧

    Got France to lift the trophy, Griezmann to score anytime and 3+ cards. At 4/1, hoping it gets a bit fiery at the end...

    No but for something that was supposed to stop refs mistakes it hasn’t really done it’s job there has it? Offsides and goal line decisions I can see it’s use just not for something that’s subjective like that.

    Agree, but for me goes to show why it doesn’t work. I can understand it for decisions that are black and white but that all down to opinions and even after all of it most people will still think the ref got it wrong, goes against everything it was supposed to sort out.

    How on earth is that a pen? Hated VAR from the second it was brought in and that’s just a joke

    It’s been brilliant! 78 was before my time but think it’s probably the best WC I’ve seen. Got to say fair play to the Russians aswell despite all the scare stories before the tournament they’ve hosted brilliantly and lads I know who’ve been out there have only got good things to say about the country and the people.

    Dominic Solanke (Liverpool)

    Something I think is especially true for strikers, finishing seems to get a bit rusty easily if they haven’t played for a while. While I haven’t seen enough of Solanke to comment if he’s right for us, I certainly wouldn’t judge him on 45 mins early in pre season.

    Didnt mean to make it sound personal, and I fully agree some people have gone way over the top. But I still think that a young inexperienced team deserve credit for getting further than any England team (and probably much better ones) have done for 28 years. It was nice to at least be able to dream for once.

    Two glorified friendlys and a semi final defeat, not saying the players are hero’s but it’s a decent result from a young squad not expected to do anything. Can talk about who we’ve played but we’ve beat a Columbia team who before the game every non English football fan was saying we’re much better than England, and Sweden who qualified out of their group ahead of Germany and stopped Italy even getting to the World Cup. We won’t be like Wales and have an open top bus parade for reaching the semis, but who wouldn’t be happy to see their nation in a World Cup semi final and dreaming (no matter how unrealistic) of what they could achieve? The desperation to put down a young inexperienced team who have outdone all expectation from non English fans is ridiculous.

    There’s no movement up top. It was the same when I watched them at Wembley in the qualifiers and Southgate still hasn’t sorted it. Fans slate the players for passing it sideways and backwards all the time but they really have no option because usually Kane and whoever else are up there are stood there like fucking statues watching the game. Rashford is the only one who moves and be looks to do something and he spent nearly the whole tournament on the bench.

    Couldn’t watch the game but seeing some of the comments on here it doesn’t sound great. Just wondering how much we can put down to not being match fit? Did it have a bit of a pre season game feel to it? Hopefully we kick on from this and it’s sounds as if our defence was solid enough without being properly tested, so at least there’s one of last seasons biggest problems hopefully improved. If we can get him I think harry Wilson would be massive for us creativity wise aswell.

    On holiday so sat in the hotel bar but can’t watch the game, sounds like it’s the same old shite is there any improvement from last season or at least any positive signs?

    Of course it would be nice to score 4 or 5 but like you said we’re not going to be at full fitness after just one pre season game and these games are never as easy as they look on paper. A win, decent run out for the lads to get the match fitness up and not conceding an away goal would be spot on.
