    I always felt we would have a better chance as soon as we got rid of Rooney.

    Well, and the other 'stars'.

    Too often we've had a team of 'All-Stars' but no real team.

    In a sense it's probably good that Kane didn't score otherwise the scum would be concentrating solely on him and that's the opposite of the ethos of this lot.

    What chance do you give yourselfs against Croatia . If Modric turns up I think they will beat . I hope you beat Croatia. I think Belgium will win it outright . They are the only team left in the competition who outright beat you . I can't see you or any other team coping with Lukaku , De Bruyne and Hazard . I think they will destroy France .

    If I were you I would want France in the final . They are shite my team in the last euro's gave them hell should of beaten them .

    You were right, but I would've agreed as well. No Rooney and Hart got rid of tow problems in the squad

    Give us a chance.

    More than anything is the result. It wasn't exciting but it was just a solid, solid win. That's the most exciting result of all. It's just solid and they grew. Nothing more.

    Sterling was good, finishing lacking. Pickford...... Sweet Jesus

    Rooney playing in 1st gear ruined alot of games for us.
    This squad is not really much superior to the previous tournaments..
    its just that we have got rid of Rooney , Hart and Woy

    look at the 3-2 win over Germany where we found a good system , pre 2016.
    Woy binned it to accomdate Rooney.

    Well, semi final we go. We did the job today and who would have thought this inexperienced team would get this far, I didn’t so whatever happens now is just a bonus but still extremely proud.

    From what I gather most Americans are anti English

    Fwiw, I’ve been surrounded by Swedes in the Swedish bar I’m at all day and they are seriously gracious in defeat. What a cracking bunch.

    especially around the 4th of July, bunch of fakes

    most of them, their blood didnt enter america until the late 19th century, but they all act like they were at bunker hill and york town.

    Tho k I may be banned from the ‘other forum’ for suggesting this game was good as it was free of diving and cheating

    Apparently I’m racist

    Either way great result, Maguire has just increased his worth to about 40 million (Leicester scouting is amazing)

    Not sure about this line up vs Croatia but a great display today. 3 at the back makes it much easier to play out
