  1. Is he the nicest man in football? This is his tweet to Emma Raducanu after her withdrawal from Wimbledon. With all he’s got going on at the Euros, he does this. The more I hear about this fella, the more I like him. Just a shame he plays for Manure.

  2. Went to the Germany game last week where covid security was allegedly rock solid, with everyone double jabbed or LFT negative. Still got ‘pinged’ by the app and now self- isolating. Half the children at my wife’s school are self isolating. In a fortnight I’ll get the instruction to return to the office in central London, which means 1 hour on a train packed with 1000 plus passengers 10 times a week. Just can’t escape the feeling that this is all going to go tits up.

  5. Wow! What's depressing is having nothing to be excited about and nothing to feel positive about. After more than a year of restrictions and detachment from friends and families as well as the impact on people's well-being and financial position and a media hell bent on causing division a victory in a major international final will bring people closer together and lift spirits all round. We've had to wait 55 years to celebrate success in international football (and we may yet have to wait a bit longer - who knows?). Personally, I hope we do win it and it brings everyone closer together and I'm convinced that it will do wonders for people who have suffered with mental health issues. It's fantastic to have something to feel really positive about for a change. There has been far too much negativity in the world recently.

  6. The club talked about getting five players in and four - counting Baker - have arrived. So I think we are only getting one more player. I can’t remember if that fifth player was described as a striker or a forward but I think, given Wells and Martin can play as out and out forwards, a number 10 (who won’t actually wear a number 10 as King is wearing that) might be more crucial than a number 9 (which is now Martin, in shirt number terms, but also Wells). At the same time, I think creatively and chance creation happens in different ways. For me, it is less about finding an incredible playmaker - as they are few and far between at Championship level - but about how we can get the midfielders, wingers and full backs further up the pitch so the forwards are not isolated. If Atkinson, Baker and Kalas can give us solidity in defence and Williams and James help us control the midfield, we will create more chances, creative player or not.

  9. I think the anti English rhetoric has been fuelled over the years by MSM, a kind of embarrassment and shame of our history, and also customs, sneering of differing classes and of course brexit. I suppose I’ve noticed a theme of sneering of anything perceived as English, as opposed to anything EU, which is somehow considered as far superior in every way.

  13. Your choice, and no doubt many will agree. Covid is here forever, the govt. have to open up and get the country and economy moving again at some stage. Boris had made absolutely the correct decision afaic. but as ever it is individual choice whether to attend large scale events such as football matches.

  21. maybe it's because I'm older and maybe because Ive spent so long working from home and having zero social life for over 12 months, but to be honest, I'm in absolutely no rush to go back out into a crowd. Will I be a AG for Blackpool? Maybe, but probably not. I'll join a crowd when I'm convinced I'll be safe and not just because I miss the flavour, the smell, the atmosphere etc. To add fuel to that fire Coronavirus news - live: Third wave may hit India as early as August, new report says (msn.com)

  24. Can not wait for the 1st game had'nt realised how much i've missed the ground,the smell, the atmosphere the songs, arguing with my dad about the game, speaking to my grandad about the game, city for me has always been my place to just for 3hrs on a saturday ( or night ) forget about my problems or stresses in my week, hopefully people do feel safe enough to pack the gate and get behind the boys and have a succesful season.

  25. Time to kill off the stupid football rule of no drinking in sight of the pitch. Reduce pressure on crowded concourses, less chance of infection spreading, and generally be treated like adults like in other sports

  31. My concern with Vyner at the moment is that, much as I rate him, he's currently what I'd call a "five a side player" - in the sense that he's an extremely good footballer but not necessarily good in a particular position. I actually prefer him as a midfielder to a centre-back - although I know others disagree - but I think the major barrier to him playing centre-back at the moment is simply that him and Kalas aren't a natural pairing. I don't instinctively think of him as a right back but it's worth remembering he was two years younger at Rotherham and had not played a lot of Championship football. I think he was one of our stand-out players last season (admittedly there wasn't loads of competition) and I really do think he he has the potential to become a really good footballer at this level. However I think he needs to focus on one position. Right back isn't the one I'd immediately go for but , within our current team, I think right back is his best chance of establishing himself as a first choice player in the side.

  33. Sounds like I'm 10 years older but similar feelings here. I always want England to win - and I do recognise all the players - but was surprised the other night how emotionally detached I was from the game. My wife was jumping up loudly celebrating every goal, not me though, which surprised me (and her!) Years ago I'd have been jumping about, charging at the telly to shout at the ref etc., very animated and fully involved. These days a quiet contentment that England are doing well, but nothing much. Sad really, I never thought my enthusiasm for international football would wane, but it seems it has, so even if we win the thing I won't enjoy it as I would have even 5 years ago. As for City, after the tedious, ever frustrating LJ years, then DH, I really hope Nige - who I'm greatly in favour of - can produce a City team that restores my previous fervour.

  34. I'm an open Marxist-Leninist and would absolutely love it if England won the Euros, and I'll be on the piss for a month if we do. I've no idea why you would actively want England to lose. There's no need to self-flagellate about the original sin of being born in England.

  35. I didn’t recognise many of the squad apart from silly socks, Kane, Sterling and a few others. Up until the opening ceremony I had little or no interest but when it began I really got into it. I didn’t particularly enjoy watching more football on the screen but there have been some great matches. Watching England is always tough (sometimes a tournament can be more enjoyable if they have been knocked out early doors ) but this tournament has been a distraction from the mundane stuff (I can’t really get out much because I’m caring for my elderly mother) and I don’t have a car at the moment. And tv is generally rubbish…

  38. To be honest, how can they be "fine and proper" examples of people in their position, whilst someone (who shall remain nameless for this point) can oversee the sale of one club, whilst being "in charge" of another. Reeks of hypocrisy before you even start looking at the finer points of the past 12 months for both clubs involved.

  39. Shame for Ipswich they don't have their man at the top table, given Ashton being on the EFL Board was such a huge benefit to us, according to Steve. Though he failed to specify quite what that benefit was no doubt we will miss it badly. Or possibly not.

  40. Good news - down to personal choice whether people are happy to attend or not, or whether they continue to wear a mask if they do. If you've been double jabbed there should be little to worry about, presuming they work as well as we've been told.

  41. It was never about stopping people from getting it, it was always about stopping the NHS from being overrun and the political consequences of having people dying in corridors would have. Infection rates are up but due to the vaccine the number of hospital admissions is way down so no need to lock down.

  44. The people who do that will do that anyway! Bottom line is, nobody of any particular political persuasion owns our country or owns patriotism, as much as some claim to do so. I want England to win. And I will feel pleased and proud to be English if they do so. Patriotism doesn't need to be hateful or negative and I think it's great we've got a team of likeable, hardworking players who represent England as it is, rather than England as the xenophobes want it to be. I hope we beat Denmark and I hope to get to finally see us in a final. I'll just feel a bit sorry for those who miss out on a chance to see England in a major final for the first time in 55 years because they feel the need to boycott the team due to the players kneeling before matches.
