  1. @ExiledAjaxWhat he said. Was really hopeful that this was Englands time but hey ho. Grealish has replied to reports that he should have stepped up, he did put himself forward to take penalties but Mr Southgate chose not to use him. I wonder if other players also did? I do think that with the stupidly late substitutions and choice of penalty takers, was Mr Southgate already governed or decided, due to personal or outside influences, that to the possible detriment of winning the game he wanted to install certain players. Absolutely shocking if that's the case and possibly has cost us a place in footballing history. I was, prior to the game happy to trust in Mr Southgates team selection and tactics but believe he got it badly wrong this time. I was 5 in 1966, can't really remember it, said to my Grandsons that last night was massive and to savour it as these occasions are rare. They, like the rest of us are gutted. Hopefully I'll live to see a major win, as will they, but they, like me loved the whole journey, loved being proud to be English and celebrating it. Definitely a wasted opportunity and who knows how long it will be for another chance of silverware. Great to hear everyone's thoughts and input. After all, it's only football.... Isn't it?
  2. Going off air now. See you on the other side. Good luck everybody. COME ON ENGLAND
  3. Thoughts please boys and girls. I'm not tempting fate, it's all on the day, but feel if England can play with the same tempo as in the last few games we can do it. Only thing I'm struggling with is team selection. Mr Southgate has done very well so far so might just leave that to him and not fret too much over it. Will still be as nervous as hell but COME ON ENGLAND.
  4. Top stuff. Losing, then equalising. Then eventually winning. Just like the ups and downs in life. Jeez, the sphincter was going tonight. Brilliant England. Come on. One more massive performance.
  5. What a great feeling of English pride and celebration there is at the moment. Fingers crossed that it continues. Before tonight's game I shall quote the great man. "I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start. The games afoot: Follow your spirit, and upon this charge Cry 'God for Harry (Kane), England, and Saint George!"
  6. Frying tonight! Is that Odd Bod Junior?
  7. Thought ze German officials did a good job tonight. Not sure why there wasn't a single minute of added time at the end of the second half though. Not complaining, the game was over, but surely the ref has to follow the rules, not interpret them as he sees fit. Oh, and nice one England. Fantastic result. Not bringing politics into it, but get off your knees.
  8. Maybe missed it but don't think there's a thread for this. If not, why not? It seems that all the important officials for this game are German, apart from the fourth official. That worries me as I feel we have to not only win the game but potentially 'over win' the game. Hope it's officiated in a fair manner and not dealt with like a footballing version of the shocking and unfair version of Eurovision.
  9. £20 outside bet gone now. No problem, at least the play offs proved entertaining.

    Go on, say it, feeling a little bit dirty is OK in small doses
  14. How good would that be, you meet a sag who says he's a BIG Rovers fan and we can reply, who, Forest Green
  15. Come on Rovers! My mouth now feels like I've sucked a toilet brush! But if it keeps my bet, and interest in this season going I'll suffer it.
  16. Ah, used to love a bit of Lisa. Good darts, what odds did you get on that?
  17. Good man (hope you don't mind me addressing you in that way?!). Looking good so far then, well done. I'm hoping for a Rovers comeback. No not those gypos, Forest Green.
  18. So, how's your bets looking so far ladies?
  19. As always we wait in anticipation for Mr Johnson's post match waffle. Unfortunately his team didn't show enough "pitch personality" on this occasion.
  20. Gone £20 treble on Swansea, Lincoln and Forest Green. Probably won't happen but hey, as a wise man once said "it's a funny ol game football'.
  21. You'd think professional footballers could afford a decent motor?
  22. Fair play that both Chelsea and Man City have reached the final. Great to see. But, is it really an 'all English final', as its been described? Sure, its two English clubs, but between both teams they have about 5 English players I think. Hardly English clubs then actually in reality apart from on paper. I know money talks but maybe it'd be better for our national side and football in general if teams were more restricted as to the number of foreign players allowed in a side, so more, English talent had a chance to compete and enhance our national game.
  23. Interesting. Thoughts. Didn't know this was a thing. OTIB is working fine.
  24. Ah I see now. Sorry, complete brain freeze on that one. A good day for a cold one or three.
