Southgate management was terrible second half. Giving them the whole midfield to work in with Rakitic and Modric  the freedom of the stadium. He should have taken Lingard off and put Dier on next to Henderson around the 50th minute mark. Croatia was getting on top. Compact the midfield and push up, even more so because Croatia don't exactly have a quick striker and you would have thought with Stones and Walker in the back they could afford to do so. 

They bottled it in that second half.

He brought Dier on against Colombia and it was one of the worst performances in the World Cup from an England player - I agree he should have switched it up slightly but not by bringing on Dier as a 2nd sitting midfielder.

Not so much for quality but just a filler in that area, they needed more defensive minded players in midfield and to lessen the time they had on the ball, make them rush things more. You don't give Modric and Rakitic so much time to do what they want.

Only saying that I feel they have looked no worse than any team there based on what I have seen and results. Also said the overall standard is low.

Spot on....people saying they played no cunt are obviously missing the point that the so called good teams were in fact not good enough to themselves to play England as they exited the tournament in the early rounds.....England only beat the teams that were put in front of them....well up until last night.

I cant see how the press are saying they overachieved. Most would have expected them to beat Tunisia, Panama and Sweden. Scrapping through on penalties against Colombia and getting beat by both Belgium and Croatia is hardly overachievement. 

The fact these results took them to a semi-final is more down to the vagaries of the draw rather than overachievement.

Modric and Rakitic get the plaudits, but I thought Perisic and Rebic played just as well.

Rebic gave Ashley Young a torrid time, and Perisic was a constant threat to England.

England had 6 shots on target from open play over the whole tournament (600 mins)

0 against Croatia, 1 against Sweden and 0 against Colombia.

Utter lack of creativity.

Wins: Panama, Tunisia, Colombia, Sweden

Losses: Belgium, Croatia.

OK, but not that great. It was as good a chance as they'll have, given the shiteness of the traditionally strong countries.

But apparently they played great football throughout the tournament, complete myth. Set play specialists!

Great doesn't = shots on target though, not that I'm saying they did.

I have no idea, guessing some bitter yahoos were on their usual speed dial to FARE.

Considering they find a poppy offensive it's hardly a surprise.

And celtic fans expect to be welcomed, with open arms into the EPL - not a chance, imagine the chaos they would bring every week such as this.
