  1. Bentley, James and King were the names that came to mind other than those you mentioned. Just hope we've got the characters in there to really drive the team forward. Too often I looked at it last season and didn't feel there was anyone in the side really setting standards and driving competition. Nige has spoken about culture a lot so hopefully this is starting to seep into the culture as this will be the biggest factor.
  2. Mbappe missed a penalty for France in the round of 16. I'd quite like it if Mbappe played for England despite that.
  3. Devastated. We've made progress under Southgate and with a talented batch of youngsters there's no reason why we can't get our hands on a trophy in the foreseeable future. Italy were the best team in the tournament in fairness. Gutted for Rashford, Sancho and Saka. Brave to step up and take one, will be better players for it. Absolutely disgusting the abuse they're getting but sadly it was totally predictable.
  4. With less travel and home advantage in mind too, I would make us slight favourites. It's going to be a hell of a game. Spain used a false nine really nicely against Italy to dominate possession and reduce the impact Italy's midfield, Jorginho in particular, had. I imagine Kane will be asked to do something similar, as he has done throughout the season, while Sterling and probably Saka will start as runners in behind. The other benefit here, especially with Saka on the right against an Italy side which has played with an attacking left back throughout the Euros, is the tracking back. I think it'll be the same team that started against Denmark.
  5. Steve Cotterill | My Covid-19 Battle Part 2 - News - Shrewsbury Town I haven't watched part 1 or part 3 yet. Compelling stuff. What a man. Great to hear he's making progress bit by bit.
  6. Nightmare mate. Even the Ashton Gate sports bar tickets had sold out before they appeared on my screen at 10am this morning. Gutted.
  7. Ronaldo!!!! If Lansdown has ANY ambition for this club he'd get this one done!!!
  8. After the Football Index scandal, amongst other sad stories, the pressure on the government and gambling commission is rising. More regulations are needed to protect gamblers and it wouldn't surprise me if the new regulations include something to do with the bookies advertising and sponsoring - which would impact clubs. Probably another couple years from this happening I suspect though.
  9. Watched them all at home/ friend's gardens so far. Finding pubs/ fan zones etc is proving difficult. Any suggestions are appreciated!
  10. I said on page 1 of the thread I fancied us but I didn't expect it to feel so comfortable. Great performance and result. A tick next to Southgate's name for me tonight. In WC2018 we got to the semi's but we only beat sides we should be beating. As soon as we played someone half decent we lost (Croatia and Belgium x2). Although this was probably the worst Germany squad in my lifetime and Low is not getting the most out of that group, we comfortably beat a good side with lots of experience and plenty of quality. A real boost that's given me more confidence. Being on the easier side of the draw on paper and effectively having home advantage, it really is our tournament to lose now. Great watch and well done to Southgate and the boys. Was fantastic to hear Southgate get some redemption tonight. He said that Euro 96 still hurts but it was good to see him give those Euro 96 players and the rest of the nation an evening to remember, especially after a difficult 18 months or so. Come on!
  11. Maybe I've just got carried away looking at our route to the final etc as well, but I fancy us tonight. I don't think Low is getting the best out of that Germany side, and I know Germany have a lack of options on the right hand side, but it feels like a waste playing arguably the best defensive midfielder in the world at wing back. Bit gutted Mount hasn't been training with the squad though, I think we could use that energy to help shut down Gundogan and Kroos.

  13. He felt much more relatable I thought. Might just be biased though!
  14. What a player Ramos has been over the years. 5 La Liga's, 4 Champions Leagues, 2 European Championships and 1 World cup! Originally I thought I could see him at Roma myself, but I thought his relationship with Jose was in a bad place when Jose left RM?
