    ***Official World Cup 2018 Thread***

    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.

    *****Official Rangers vs Shkupi match thread*****

    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?

    *****Official Rangers vs Shkupi match thread*****

    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.

    Steven Gerrard Press Conference

    I agree but sadly I don’t think he’ll ever stay fit, it’s probably psychological now aswell as physical. Can’t see the lad having much of a career once his contract with us is up because let’s face it who’s going to take a chance on someone who’s played less than 10 games in two years and is still getting constantly injured. Really hope I’m wrong because from what I’ve seen he looks like a cracking player with a top attitude aswell, all the makings of a future captain imo but just can’t see him ever being fit longer than a couple of weeks.

    ***Official World Cup 2018 Thread***

    I never thought we would win it, but was still a nice dream while it lasted. My main point was that certain people (mainly the foreigners and paddy’s at work) love to say we were only there because of an easy draw, and yet before the Columbia and Sweden games were saying we were going out because both were better than England.
  17. Bristol loyal

    ***Official World Cup 2018 Thread***

    And yet everyone who says that are exactly the same people who were saying we would lose to Columbia and Sweden. We weren’t good enough when it mattered but getting to the semis was an achievement and 45 mins from a World Cup final was closer than I ever thought i would see in my lifetime.

    ***Official World Cup 2018 Thread***

    Devastated, but we got further than I ever thought before the tournament. It’s a young team who will learn a lot of lessons and will improve. I’ve questioned Southgate for playing young and sterling ahead of rose and rashford all tournament and still think he was wrong, but it doesn’t really matter now. I think over the 90 mins we were the better team but we just didn’t have the quality to push on and win it. Gutted we’re going home (not interested in the 3rd place game) but hopefully we can learn and improve from this and this young squad can go on to better things at the euros.

    He’s clearly just showing him how he could carry two balls at once. Now move along nothing to see here sweep sweep...

    England related thread

    I’m English and have lived here my whole life and can honestly say the majority of English football fans would have us as their second team or at least have a soft spot for us and without doubt prefer that to the taigs. The only people down here I’ve ever encountered who support them are the plastic paddy’s, everyone else hates them!
  22. Bristol loyal

    Are you supporting England at the World Cup

    I’m English, so or course. But when Northern Ireland or wales are in a tournament I always want them to do well and am right behind them. Always used to be the same for Scotland but these days with a team full of taigs and the actions of the sfa against our club right now I couldn’t bring myself to feel the same.

    ***Official World Cup 2018 Thread***

    Criminal he’s starting with rashford on the bench. Only things i would take issue with at the moment with Southgate is him constantly picking sterling and young ahead of rashford and rose.

    Not quite as much but put this on today so even happier now, to be honest I forgot I even did it while the game was on 😂
